Frank Myers Auto Maxx Presents: Get Your Spring On

I’m almost giddy with anticipation.

March is here and that means spring is just around the corner. After the winter we’ve had, I think we can all shout out a collective, “Wahoo” at the thought of spring and everything that comes along with it.

I wholeheartedly agree with Robin Williams who said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” That sounds like a great idea to me. A big party in the park with blossoming flowers and barefoot kids running around with ice cream all over their faces. True, it may take a little longer for Mother Nature to get her spring on but for now, a guy can dream!

Here’s a few tips to get Get Your Spring On!

Make your spring break plans now!

Plan to do something new like luxury camping at El Capitan Canyon in Los Padres National Forest where you camp in style, making both kids and mom happy! Or how about relaxing at Kiawah Island in South Carolina – a great place to golf while the family enjoys swimming, turtle watching, and biking. Feeling a little more adventurous, why not take the Grand Canyon All American Helicopter Tour or if you really want to get away, fly over to Paris? I hear the Paris Chocolate and Pastry Food Tour is a delicious way to spend a week. You’ll enjoy French gourmet specialties in the morning and walking tours in the afternoons. If these things are out of the budget, plan a staycation at home. Play tourist in your hometown and do something special, just don’t spend the whole week in front of the tube. No matter what you choose to do, make this Spring Break special by being original and intentional with your plans.

Get your spring-cleaning done early.

Why wait? Donate items you don’t need to the needy. Hire someone to wash your windows. Clean out your junk, your garage, and any area that has grown dusty over the long winter. Soon the sun will be shining in and shedding light on the state of your homestead. Imagine how much better your spring will be if you already have all of that pesky cleaning done?

Spend time outside being active.

Shake away the winter blues by getting that metabolism going. Start walking with a friend, playing tennis in the afternoon, or biking on a Saturday. Break out those rollerblades, if you dare, or why not make plans to run a marathon? Not the active type? Get outside anyway. Dine el fresco at a restaurant and then take a small stroll after dinner while window shopping on the avenue. Whatever you do, get outside and breathe in some fresh air. It’s sure to clear your head and prepare you to have a great spring.

Ok, back to work now, but this weekend, you might just see me outside taking a walk – my perfect pre-spring activity. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to GET MY SPRING ON!

Frank Myers Auto Announces February Sales Pro Of Month

Frank Myers Auto Maxx is pleased to announce that Mr. Mike Thomas has been named the Non-Commissioned Sales Pro of the Month for the month of February. To capture the top spot for the second month in a row, Mike sold 22 and a half cars. That number of vehicles is the 3rd most number ever sold in the history of the dealership. The only employees to have ever sold more than Mike was his father, Robert Thomas (now Director of Service) and Tracy Myers (now the owner).  

Thomas was selected as February 2011 Non-Commissioned Sales Pro of the month for his world-class performance and award-winning accomplishments in the automotive solutions department. What he likes best about working at Frank Myers Auto Maxx is helping folks drive home in the car of their dreams…especially after other dealerships have told them no. Thomas also mentioned how much he enjoys the family atmosphere.

Mastermind of Possibilities at Frank Myers Auto, John Bodenheimer, stated “Mike has come a long way since he started and really deserves this honor. He has become our top sales professional for the month of February and we are all proud of him. His commitment to his profession make it a joy for all of his teammates to be around him on a daily basis.”

Head Honcho, Keith Bowman stated “Mike made it a personal goal to be on top of the pile for two months in a row. It inspires me that he was dedicated to making his dream a reality. To have been able to sell nearly 23 cars takes something special…like tiger blood flowing through his veins. It is no surprise to me that he made sales pro of the month. If he continues to be as great as he was in February, I would expect him to be the sales pro of the month every month.”

Unlikely Educator Spurs Economic Growth With Alphabet

Frank Myers Auto has made used car buying easy as ABC

Used car buying easy as ABC in Winston Salem, NC

WINSTON SALEM – At it once again is the uncommon car dealer, Tracy Myers from Frank Myers Auto Maxx, just in time for the new school year to begin. Myers says his new approach to owning a nicer, newer car will simplify your life and help the local economy.

“Let’s face it…everybody wants a nicer, newer car. And buying a car is great for the economy! A better car can help you get to work, get your kids to school on time and in style, plus it helps me keep a lot of good people employed here at my business…not to mention the countless other folks who work to design, build, transport, maintain, fuel and insure the vehicles,” explained Myers.

Myers says that buying a car doesn’t need to be complicated or stressful. He believes that there’s a lesson to be learned from grade school. “My kids are getting ready to head back to school, and that got me thinking about learning the ABCs and 123s – and how, back in school, life was simple and fun. I think buying a car should be simple and fun too…so I created the ABCs of Car Buying.”

This “back to school” themed sale makes this month an excellent time to upgrade to a newer car, truck van or SUV.  Here’s how it works:

A: We’ll pay $1000 more than fair market value for any trade, whether it’s paid for or not.

B: Bring in just $500.00 for a down payment, and you can drive away the same day

C: Credit is not an issue. We work with the most helpful lenders in the country and understand that bad things happen to good people. Our goal this month is 100% approval.

“We always have fun here at Frank Myers Auto Maxx but this month is going to be something to remember. We’re helping the schools, helping the kids, helping the economy and helping you too. It’s never been easier to get a nicer, newer car!”

The generous trade-in allowance was inspired by the popular Cash For Clunkers program initiated by President Obama, which proves even car dealers can learn a thing or two.

“People are still talking about Cash For Clunkers…which happened one year ago this month. I pay attention to what my customers want. They’ve been asking for Cash For Clunkers to come back, and I’m giving it to them. I thought back to school time was the perfect time to show off what I’ve learned!” explained Myers.

Why Is August A Good Month To Buy?

Many people don’t realize that the new car manufacturers start releasing next year’s models this time of year. That means that every car at the dealership essentially turns one year older this month than it was last month. That extra month drives prices down making August one of the best times of year to buy.

Banged Up Credit From The School of Hard Knocks?

“At Frank Myers Auto Maxx, we realize that things have been pretty tough the past few years. We’re really good at helping you overcome the bruises on your credit report that you’ve earned from living in the real world. We believe in helping people make a fresh start. Come in and give us a chance to help,” says Myers.

ABCs Make Buying A Car Fast, Fun and Easy

What will you do with the extra money you receive for your trade-in? You could use it to lower your monthly payments. You could use it to be able to afford “more car” for your money. You could use it to pay off other bills. You could even use it buy all new clothes for your kids before school starts. It’s entirely up to you.

Come in to Frank Myers Auto Maxx located at 4200 N. Patterson Avenue in Winston-Salem, NC or pre-register for the sales event at http://www.FrankMyersAuto.com and buy a nicer, newer vehicle before August 30 and take advantage of $1,000 more for your trade, $500 down payments, and more lenient credit requirements.

Frank Myers Auto Maxx Joins The No Phone Zone Campaign

Today, Frank Myers Auto Maxx announced they had joined the “No Phone Zone” campaign, created by Oprah Winfrey and Harpo Studios, to combat distracted driving. Tracy Myers, the owner of Frank Myers Auto, announced the support of the campaign in conjunction with “The Oprah Winfrey Show” dedicated to the first national “No Phone Zone” Day.

The campaign is dedicated to honoring the lives lost due to distracted driving, educating the public about the dangers of distracted driving and activating people to make a difference in their communities. As part of the campaign, drivers are encouraged to take the “No Phone Zone” pledge. The pledge, available at www.oprah.com, asks motorists to commit to:

1) Not text while driving
2) Not text while driving, and use only hands-free calling
3) Not text or use the phone while driving, and pull over to a secure location if they need to make a call

In addition to Myers’s announcement, the used car dealership and its subsidararies will lead an internal campaign to encourage their employees to take the “No Phone Zone” pledge. The Frank Myers Auto Group also plans to sponsor a public service announcement (PSA) to be broadcast on television for the “No Phone Zone” campaign. Once the PSA is finalized, it will also be available online at www.youtube.com and http://www.frankmyersauto.com

“We are proud to help Oprah raise awareness of the risks of distracted driving,” said Keith Bowman, Head Honcho & Spiritual Advisor at Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “The ‘No Phone Zone’ campaign fits our own mission to keep members of the Frank Myers family and their loved ones, as safe as possible while on the road.”
