DOCUMENT / DEALER / MISC. FEES: We don't play games like that! If a used car dealer in the state of Ga tries to add any fees other than those that are required by law to an advertised price, not only are they being unethical but it is also ILLEGAL! Basically if you live in Ga you pay the advertised price of the vehicle, plus the applicable Title Ad Valorem Tax, plus a title transfer fee ($18) and that's it!
TITLE AD VALOREM TAX, TITLE TRANSFER/TEMP TAG FEES: Ga residents must pay title ad valorem tax (TAVT) at the time of purchase, this tax is set by the state and is not based on the selling price of the vehicle. Ga residents must pay an additional $18 for transferring the title into your name. We pay for your 45 day temp tag. Non-Ga residents will be responsible for your state fees and taxes when you register your vehicle, we are not required to charge any fees to non Ga resident at the time of sale. Contact your local DMV for more information.
INSPECTIONS: We welcome and strongly encourage you to bring your mechanic with you to inspect vehicles on our lot. All vehicles are sold "as-is no warranty" so we encourage you to have a pre-purchase inspection performed. There is no "cooling off" or "lemon law" on used vehicles in the state of Ga., so please be sure that you are satisfied with the condition of the vehicle before you sign the paperwork! Some vehicles may not be available for sale to people residing in Ga counties that require emissions testing.
FINANCING: We do not offer buy-here-pay-here or in house financing. We will provide the lender of your choice with the documentation they need to process your loan application. Credit unions are great but unfortunately there are none in Blairsville, however there is one in both Blue Ridge and Murphy NC. Locally we have several banks, United Community Bank, Park Sterling Bank, Community and Southern Bank, and Cadence Bank. There is also a finance company that can help people with less than perfect credit which is 1st Franklin Financial. Lendmark Financial also has offices nearby in Blue Ridge Ga and in Murphy NC. If you would like contact information on any of these lenders feel free to call or send me an email.
TRADES: This is where our dealership differs from most, we rarely take trades and the reason is that we prefer to be able to visit wholesale dealers and "cherry pick" the inventory we are specifically looking for. We normally do not take trades on vehicles valued at under $2500 or trades that are over 10 years old. We do not accept motorcycles, boats, RV's, etc. as trades. We cannot give you a firm value on your trade-in without seeing it in person.
PAYMENT: On higher priced vehicles we prefer doing a bank to bank wire transfer. On cheaper vehicles we will accept cash, if we accept a cashiers check we ask that you fax a copy of the check to us several hours prior to your arrival so that we can verify its authenticity, vehicles will not be released until funds are verified. This is for both our protection and yours.
