"Shop Smart, Buy Smart..." This is not just a motto at Houston Wholesale Cars, it's been the very business model for success. "We want customers to do their homework," says Gary Padilla. "That way, they will know we are offering the best quality cars for the best possible prices. Our vehicles are priced competitively according to the marketplace. We are able to buy in 'volume', which enables us to sell in 'volume' with a lower profit margin because we have a much lower overhead. We value our reputation and we only sell clean, quality, late model cars and trucks, and in doing so, have created a loyal customer base."
The reputation associated with Houston Wholesale names goes back many years. Jerry Houston built a name for himself among the local auto community. Gary Padilla worked closely with him for several years. Gary Padilla, along with Emilio Chavez and Scott Frankel, together compile more than 40 years' experience in the business, and are keeping the Houston Wholesale tradition of "Value for Dollars" alive.
"Many of our customers have purchased between three and ten cars from us," says Emilio. "They know they can trust us and feel comfortable with their purchase." "A successful car sale is one that the customer values enough to go home and tell their friends about, and return for their next vehicle, and continue to return for years to come," says Scott.
Through Houston Wholesale's website, a customer may view their inventory with complete images, prices and details, including a Carfax vehicle history report, which can save shoppers time and money. Houston Wholesale Cars has Credit Union financing at special rates, as well as special financing programs. Gap insurance and warranty programs are available. Houston Wholesale Cars is a member of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau.
