After a few weeks of searching for a work van I landed here for my purchase.
I spotted the van on Kijiji and honestly, it seemed too good to be true. But since the dealership was only a few blocks from the office I went over to check it out.
This is a pretty small dealership and their lot is full-up with vehicles so you'll have to park on the street or maybe in the McD's lot across the street. Upon walking up to the door I was greeted by Dave. He asked what he could help me with and I explained that I saw that they had a van online. He pointed it out on the lot, told me a little bit about it, and grabbed the keys so I could have a look.
The van was a 2001 Ford E-250 with only 120,000 KM's on it, no rust, and what looked to be a good looking vehicle all around. Now, being at a small used car dealership the typical stereotypes set in like what was done to the vehicle to make it seem so great. After a thorough look and a test drive, Dave showed me the vehicle inspection report and the Car Proof report. Other than the van needing a brake job sooner than later and the Car Proof showing that there was a minor $1100 fender-bender a year ago, everything seemed to check out. It seems like whoever owned the van just took really good care of it and didn't drive it much.
Before making a purchase, I wanted to have another set up eyes have a look at the van just to make sure I didn't miss something critical. Dave let me take the van across the city to my dad's office so he could have a look at it too. Everything seemed to check out to him also and even he was surprised at the condition. He remarked that this was better than the vehicles we had been looking at at the auction a few days before.
With everything looking good it was time to talk about price. The Canadian Black Book says that an average price for the base model of this particular van was about $5700. The dealership had an $8000 sticker on it not including taxes and fees. Considering the vehicle's great condition, half the mileage it should have, upgrades like power everything and a V8 engine instead of a V6, we landed on a price of $7800 all-in.
I have to say that Dave was great. I didn't feel pressured to make a purchase and I didn't feel like I was being "sold" on this van. He was very straight-forward and it was a natural process, not forced.
Hands down the best in the business! Would recommend Sport Tech to anyone looking for a new vehicle.
I have never had such an easy car shopping experience before! Awesome service, great guys and they actually work with you! Bought one vehicle and then decided to buy another one for my daughter since the prices are more than fair and I would send anyone I know there! Thanks Derek and Tyler!
