inc awards frank myers autoFor the 5th Consecutive Year, Frank Myers Auto Maxx Appears on the Inc. 5000 list with Three-Year Sales Growth of 114%

Inc. magazine today ranked Frank Myers Auto Maxx  #3006 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“I’m grateful for the amazing Team Members who made this happen, I’m thankful for our community for allowing the Myers family to serve them for the past 85 years and I’m appreciative of the world’s most loyal customers…the customers of Frank Myers Auto Maxx…for allowing us to serve them and provide them both automotive service and repair as well as with nicer, newer cars,” said Tracy Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “And while this recognition is humbling, my goal is to never lose sight of the fact that NONE of this would be possible without God because all things are possible through him.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

3 Things Every First Time Car Buyer Should Do

First Time Car Buyers

If you are new to the car buying scene you may have experienced some common feelings: Exhaustion, anxiety and confusion. Sound like you? It doesn’t have to be like this! With the help of a trusted automotive professional and a little research on your part, you can find the perfect vehicle for you and your needs without experiencing any of these seemingly terrible feelings! It can actually be quite an enjoyable experience for those who love to shop or are anxious to get behind the wheel of their very own vehicle. We’ve come up with a short list of the MUST do’s when considering buying your very first vehicle.

Research

Think you know what kind of car you’re looking for? Take the time to research features and models that are important to you. Doing a little research before stepping foot on the lot will help you find the best deals and know when to walk away. It can also empower you to make decisions and help calm your nerves. When you understand more about what you’re buying you will know exactly where you money is going and you may also lift the rose colored glasses on some features or add ons that can be costly. If you aren’t a big music lover, paying for that sound system really isn’t worth the extra speaker, maybe you don’t need the 8-way power adjustable seat but you would like leather detailing. Learn the value and assess what’s important to you before you’re overwhelmed by choice and price tags.

Build a Budget

When you are really excited about that big purchase it can get easy to get lost in all the features, add ons and new model upgrades thrown your way. To keep yourself from getting distracted by all the bells and whistles of a new vehicle, make a budget prior to heading to the dealership. If you have any shopping companions, tell them your budget and get them to help you stick with it! It’s easy to say yes to the added features when you see their seemingly small price next to the larger, overall price of your vehicle but these things add up quickly. Don’t let a $100 or $200 there throw off your finances. If you’ve done your research you know what kind of vehicle and the features that you can afford. Stick to it!

Shop Around

Now that you know what you want and you know how much you have to spend, you’re ready to shop! Take the time to cruise a couple different dealerships not just for pricing but for salespeople. Great sales staff will make a difference for you and your vehicle. If you walk on a lot and someone is pushing you into a vehicle you don’t really want, they might not have your best interest at heart. Shopping around will also allow you to find a trustworthy individual to help you find a payment plan that will work for you. Don’t worry, there are not sneaky sales people all over the place, trust your instincts and come armed with your knowledge of how much things cost, and how much you can spend.

If you are looking for your very first vehicle, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. Using some of these points you can make the process a little smoother and even enjoy your experience!

How To Build Your Credit Score In 3 Easy Steps

When you first start building your credit score it can be hard to know where to start and even harder to get people to trust you with a zero credit rating. While it may feel like you’re being punished before you’ve committed a crime, don’t worry. You can begin building towards a great credit score and not to mention finance a vehicle even if it may seem impossible.

Creditors and lenders use your credit history to establish whether or not you’re trustworthy. If you hope to take out a loan in the future, or buy a house, you need to establish a good credit rating early on and nurture that relationship over the years. We have a few tips to help you build up your credit.


1) Check out your credit score

I know you think you have a zero credit rating, but are you sure? Make sure you have a clean slate before you begin to move forward. Sometimes things you would not expect can show up on a credit report such as an unpaid library fine and a forgetten medical bill etc. Doing a credit report check will help you know exactly where you stand so when you have a discussion with lenders, they won’t blindside you! It will also give you the opportunity to pay off any of the sneaky debts you may have accumulated.


2) Apply for an auto loan and/or credit card.

You are more than capable of securing an auto loan with zero credit. It you are new to the country you start with a blank slate and creditors will often give you a chance, merely at a higher rate. While the rate may be higher than if you had already esablished an impeccable credit score, with the right team working for you, you can find yourself an affordable payment plan that works with your budget and still find a high quality vehicle.

If you are not in the market for a vehicle, credit cards are also a great way to establish trust with creditors. Talk to your local financial institution about what card may work for you. If you are in the position, you could get both. It you’re looking for a card and are able to secure a low-limit credit card, go for it! Taking loans and paying them back is how you establish credit.

3) Make your payments in full and on time

When you enter into a loan agreement, make sure that you are signing up for affordable payments. When you take out a loan, you are expected to make timely payments and if you fail to do so your credit score will fall. No if’s and’s or but’s. When discussing your financing options with the financial services department, make sure you are open and honest about what you can afford and don’t feel pressured to commit to something that is out of reach. If you feel the agent is pushing you, move on to work with someone more trustworthy.


If you have gone the credit card route, make small payments on your card that you are able to pay in full. It is not enough to pay the minimum payments so be aware of your spending and know that the creditors are watching!

While it may seem overwhelming, especially if you’ve been turned down, to get your first loan and build your credit score with zero credit, it is possible! An auto loan is a great way to start building towards a great future credit rating if you are in the financial position to do so. Everyone needs reliable transportation regardless of credit ratings. Working with a reputable lender and team of financial professionals like the staff at Frank Myers Auto Maxx in Winston-Salem is a great way to work towards your financial future.

What’s Up? Where you been? How are you? Why haven’t you been to see me lately?

Frank Myers Auto Talks Turkey About Your Old Car

Dear Neighbors,
Gobble Gobble. Tom Turkey here to let you in on a big secret.  Here we are in the fourth quarter. 2011 is almost over and my chances of survival are decreasing with each passing day. I’m getting really clucking nervous. I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off (no pun intended and don’t get any funny ideas), looking for places to hide.

One place I’ve found to hide is Frank Myers Auto Maxx. After hanging around all week, I’ve been getting an earful, listening in on their “secret meetings” and I’m sharing this information with you. In return, I beg you to spare me! I don’t want to be your Thanksgiving dinner.
Here’s the scoop from the lot . . .
Seems I’m not the only one getting nervous around here! Tracy Myers from Frank Myers Auto Maxx counts on strong sales in the fourth quarter to reach his goals. Tracy calls it the Fourth Quarter Catch Up. This year, he’s got big goals and a BIG PROBLEM!
Frank Myers Auto Maxx is running out of used cars and there’s no time to buy more. They need to find 213 additional used cars before the end of November in order to “catch up” and meet their goals for the year.
Tracy Myers is running out of ideas and needs your help desperately. Will you sell your old car? Here’s what he’s doing: bring in any and every car you have.
If it’s really old, they still want it. If you’re still making payments, they’ll take it.
If you’re upside down and owe more than it’s worth, let that be their problem. They need cars and they need them now. Even if you owe $2,000 or $4,000 or $6,000 more than it’s worth, they’ll still want it. Myers will pay up to $4,000 more than appraised value for any car, running or not, paid off or not.
It’s the Fourth Quarter Catch Up “Buy Back” Sale!”
Frank Myers Auto Maxx has employed hundreds of people. Most of the team members have been with the dealership 5 years or more, and most of them have families. Myers has an obligation to take care of them. But he can’t do that without cars to sell. That’s why he’s in such a jam.
This whole problem started back in 2008. When the economy got in trouble, car companies slowed down production. Now, exactly three years later, there’s been a HUGE decline in the number of three-year-old vehicles that they can normally buy at the auction. Plus, 2011 has been a record year for Frank Myers Auto Maxx, so they’ve been selling cars faster than they can get them.
Now they have a real mess on their hands and this is the only solution they can think of. Will you help Frank Myers Auto Maxx? They promise to make it worth your while.
Of course, there’s no obligation to buy a car from Frank Myers Auto Maxx. But if it turns out to be the right time, you’ll be able to use all the extra money you get for your old car to get the lowest possible payment on a nicer, newer car.
Past Credit Problems Should Not Keep You From Coming In

Their “EVERYBODY RIDES” program was designed to help even the toughest customers get approved. Short sales, foreclosures, unpaid medical bills, late payments . . . not a problem! They want to help you find a loan that fits your budget.

As an extra bonus, if you sell your old car to Frank Myers Auto Maxx this month, Tracy will buy your family Thanksgiving dinner . . . as their way of saying thanks!
Here at Frank Myers Auto, Tracy Myers believes that everybody deserves to drive a nicer, newer car. They’re on a mission to help everyone they can . . . but they need your help. Will you please help Frank Myers Auto Maxx out?
