Kathy went above & beyond to work with us on financing and to arrive at a payment we were comfortable with on a car my wife and I loved. This was my first time purchasing a car that had to be financed and she explained all documentation and was very patient during the entire process. We will definitely recommend and will be purchasing a second vehicle there.

C & J, Thank you SO MUCH for the kind words. We are so glad that your experience here was a positive one. We appreciate your business very much!

This is our second vehicle we have purchased from Valley Auto Wholesale. What a great experience we had . Kathy was our sales person and she made the process quick and easy. They have a great selection of used but like new . I highly recommend them.

Nothing feels better or is more flattering than a customer who returns to buy again and again. Thank you so much!

My experience with Barbara was wonderful. She made me feel comfortable - No pressure, and when I decided to purchase my car she moved quickly getting me an incredible loan & handling all the paperwork seamlessly.

Effortless transaction on my part. I just loved the car & took it home. She did the rest.

Will definitely refer friends & use again in the future.

Thanks so much for the business and the kind words. It was such a pleasure meeting you, finding out you are our neighbor, and earning your business!

High beams on the car didn't work and had to set an appointment to get fixed. No cost to me, but was somewhat inconvenienced. (Salesperson was owner, Charlie Durel)

Craig, We are so sorry that the switch for the high beams somehow slipped through the pre-inspection but are glad we were able to get it fixed fairly quickly. Thank you so much for your business!
