Mercedes SL500 bought on phone w/Brad Bemis help
June 2, 2017
After searching off and on for a couple of years for a white 2006 or newer Mercedes Benz SL 500/550, I happened upon one at Motorcars of Dallas. Photos and details of car explained in detail. Upfront on current and past history. Auto owner changes, miles driven, current owner's meticulous care of the car, possible problems (none in this case), price was more than fair for the condition (nearly perfect) and all this info for FREE when other dealers want to charge for the reports. I bought the car sight-unseen on the phone and wire transfers. I had no hesitation as the representative, Brad Bemis, was straight about the car and seemed genuine in his interest to help me decide. No pressure selling. No "deal expires today" or any of that crap. I got a great car, at a better than reasonable price and I have Brad to call should something go wrong. I feel good about it. I have bought 3 vehicles on-line at this point in time totally over $124,000. One of the purchases has been a bit of a problem, but that seller had nothing to do with Motorcars of Dallas. All of the others worked out though sight-unseen purchases with vehicles shipped to my home, but I have more confidence in Brad Bemis and Motorcars of Dallas than all of the others. He was meticulous with the details, paperwork perfect, shipping arranged at hundreds of dollars less than the normal shipping cost. Every purchase of a used vehicle can have its problems. Expect them, I do. But Motorcars of Dallas can be trusted. Brad Bemis can be trusted. If something is not perfect in your deal, I feel confident that all will be done to attempt to make it right. Some of these purchases are limited or no warranty, so take into the worst case scenario versus the good purchase price into account, do your due diligence on the vehicle and if you love it, just do it.
