The hassle of buying a vehicle can range from not only type of car you’re looking for, but to a salesman that is working for commission rather than your best interest.
Steven Silva opened a no hassle auto sales warehouse in Turlock where he can guarantee you the best price and the car you’re looking for at SFS Vehicle Remarketing.
“SFS stands for ‘straight forward sales’ and that’s what we’re all about,” said Silva. “We want the customers to have a good vibe when buying their car; we have a flat rate fee for your vehicle purchase, almost like a broker fee kind of deal.”
Silva opened this business a couple of weeks ago and has just started building his inventory.
“I’ve been an auctioneer in the wholesale car industry for 15-plus years and opening this shop is something I’ve always wanted to do,” he said.
Silva says that customers tell him what kind of vehicle it is they’re looking for and he goes out and finds it, aside from his own cars he sells in shop.
“Right now I’m helping someone find an Escalade for $45,000 and at the same time I’m helping a high school student find a car for $1,500,” said Silva. “I just want to help people find what they’re looking for.”
Silva believes that his connections from growing up in Hilmar and now living in Turlock will help him succeed in this business.
“It’s important to me for people to know that I’m not a car salesman, I’m an auctioneer,” he said. “I just want people to get a good vehicle for a good price.”
He stresses the importance of customers not having to negotiate or worry about any surprises.
“The customer will pay a flat rate that is agreed upon before hand,” said Silva. “There are no hidden fees or anything like that. The benefit of buying through SFS is you’re dealing directly with the previous owner of the car, not a salesman. We’re not working for commission,” said Silva. “I’m just here to help.”
