Business Scene for the week of 4/6/2011

looking to buy a new vehicle?

Just because Plumas County no longer has a new car dealership doesn’t mean buying a new car or truck can’t still be done locally. That’s where auto broker Jack Brown at Quincy Auto Sales can help. With his 40-plus years in the automotive business, Jack has developed relationships with the fleet departments at dealerships selling virtually every car and truck made, foreign and domestic. Through those contacts, Jack is able to broker new vehicles that are routinely less expensive than the deals you would find for yourself if you went directly to dealerships in Reno, Chico or Sacramento. It’s easy: call or see Jack, tell him exactly what you want and once he locates it he’ll give you his best deal. It’s that easy and you have nothing to lose and potentially lots to save.

Same can be said if you visit the several automotive dealerships in neighboring Susanville. They each offer their own terrific deals on the various makes and models they sell.

Oh, and by the way, it doesn’t matter where you buy your new vehicle; all dealerships’ service departments are not only required by the manufacturer to honor warranty work, they want your business!
