This review is based on my experience working with John Obeid and Palm Beach Auto Wholesale. I would like to take some time to advise potential customers... of John’s character. Let’s get to know a bit about the man behind Palm beach Auto Wholesale: John contacted me while I was in the hospital with my dying father. Until this day, I never left my father’s side. I slept at the hospital for 26 days straight and refused to leave. While at the hospital, John mentioned that he had a project for me. I initially told him that I couldn’t leave the hospital, but he was nice, encouraging and insisted that it would “be good for me”, also that it would be a good opportunity to make some money for my family during this difficult time. After being encouraged from other family members to go out and do what I love (photography), I decided to pursue this opportunity with John. We initially agreed on a range between $500-$1000 for the work that I would be doing. After spending 10 hours away from my father, working with John. John left me with a handshake and a promise that a check will be in the mail. I trusted him and went back to the hospital. Three years later, I still haven’t received a dollar from him. When I recently reached out to him, he acknowledged that he still owes me money and again told me that a check will be in the mail. This time he said he will send $100. I agreed, because this is clearly not about the money. This is about principle and respect. I left my father’s side to help John with his project and I feel that I should be compensated. No amount of money is worth the moments missed with my father, I just want to be paid something. John could’ve sent me $20 and I would’ve been content. Unfortunately, that $100 check never came either. I called John tonight to tell him that i never received the check and he called me a “pest” for bothering him. He said that he’s now out of the country and will send me a check next week. Based on the long history of our relationship and exchange, I highly doubt this is true. The purpose of this review is to shed some light on this company and the man behind it. Hopefully this will help potential customers make better decisions when choosing where to purchase their vehicles from and which people to support. Based on my experience, I can confidently say that John lacks integrity and humility. John is the most dishonest person I’ve met in my 28 years on this planet. Remember this before making your purchases with Palm Beach Auto Wholesale.
This place and people are the real deal! I shopped for weeks on the computer for the truck and year I was looking for (due to price range I wanted to be... in). I kept seeing their listing on online of the truck I was looking for at a large discounted price fully loaded. I had it in my head that I wanted to buy from a "big name" dealer and thought it would be safer. I finally broke down and called just to see. John (the owner) called me back and I liked the way he sounded and the confidence he had in his company and inventory that he personally hand picks to sell. The best words to describe this company is Integrity! They truly care about selling a quality product. The truck I bought was pristine! I am one of those people that take exceptional care of my cars and this one was it. He showed me his inventory of selected cars in his enclosed warehouse..wow. The truck had 40,000 miles on it and I could tell it had gone through a full inspection and service. I am very impressed. This is a business I will absolutely use in the future for myself and friends and family. Very hard to find a car dealer that really does care. Thank You!

John and TJ helped me get my dream truck at a price that I did not think was possible to get it at. The service was exceptional, the efficiency in filing... paperwork was done with respect to my time and they were as informative as could be in answering any questions I had for them. I highly recommend buying a vehicle from them as their prices are very competitive and service is exceptional. I will be 100% using them in the future and recommend them to all my friends and family.
Great service!!!!! Great price and overall excellent buying experience.... I love my new SUV and the guys at Palm Beach Auto Wholesale made it happen!... Thank you!!!

I think I got a good deal, with John and TJ providing a great experience with no pressure. TJ had everything ready to go without any hassles and even came... in on Saturday so I could take delivery of my truck. I highly recommend and will look into using them again when ready to buy again.

Great family run business!!! The 2015 GMC Sierra I bought was exactly as described on-line and the price was $3000 cheaper than anywhere with in 200 miles... of me! Well worth the 130 mile drive from Lakeland to West Palm!!
