I live near Seattle and found a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland at Hubers, online, June 29th. It appears I was probably the first to contact them, they had just posted it for sale as the pictures were still warm. Yes, it’s a 12 year old Jeep, but it has only 31,000 miles and that is super rare, but it gets better! I had been looking for a 2004, Jeep, Overland, Inferno Red with super low miles for over 5 years and there she was, on my computer screen, 3,000 miles away and not in my possession, yet! It was for sale, so there was hope! We negotiated, a little, finalized the sale and knowing the distance between us Eric Reedy offered to secure the Jeep until I could arrange for a pickup or fly and drive it back home to Seattle.
I must say Eric, and Ryan, were very helpful throughout the entire process, they even removed it from their website that day, so as not to be misleading to others who may think it was still for sale. The time between then and now was all on me. Transferring funds, sending funds, exchanging paperwork back and forth, our motorcycle vacation, etc. I was also very specific when securing a transport company for a reasonable price, but as of a few hours ago Eric emailed me that my new Jeep was on its way to our home, 3,000 miles away. The story behind the story, my wife loves her current 2002 matching bookend Jeep (Red, Overland, etc) sporting 200,000 miles on it. The only way I was going to get her another vehicle that would last another 14 years was to find a low mileage perfect match and 2004 was the last year of this body design and all else matches to a ‘T’. Our criteria was very specific and after years my searching is done. This has never been a rush as the current 2002 is still running like new and will be for sale next month if I can catch my wife looking the other way for just a few seconds.
Thanks to Hubers for making this cross country purchase easy and painless. You guys are true professionals!
