I was in the market for a new truck. I knew I would be trading in a 13 year old truck with 222,000 miles. I would have no money down. I wanted a 2016 Silverado, 4WD, regular cab, and not the base model. I also had color preferences. I had a very small budget. I knew I was hunting for a miracle. I was honest with what I could afford. I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time. I called dealerships in the area, in Maine, Vermont, and Mass. I told them all what I was dreaming about. They all told me it couldn’t be done. Brian from Cantin said he would look at some numbers, some inventory and call me back. He did it. However it was the wrong color. I know it was picky… but I’m spending some good money here. He understood and we said goodbye. The next day Brian called again. He had found another. He said there were no guarantees but he thought it could work; all dependent of my trade.
I went in to Cantin the next morning. I met with a gentleman Brian had referred me to named Foster. Foster knew who I was, and about the talks Brian and I had had. He asked if I was excited. I said I was scared silly. He called over another gentleman named Jeremy. Foster introduced me to Jeremy; gave me a good handshake and said he was off to work some numbers.
Jeremy personally drove the same model truck I was looking at. That was awesome. Immediately we had a great friendly report; he knew all the ins and outs. And plenty of ins and outs there were! This truck was way beyond anything I had researched. It was equipped with far more than I ever had expected. It seriously was a beauty. I didn’t even need to drive it. We did drive it however, and it was awesome. So now I’m really scared. There was no way I that I could see this truck fitting my budget.
When we returned to the shop, Foster met me and showed me what he came up with. Not only was it what I said I could afford, but it was WAY more truck than I ever could have expected. For respect to the folks at Cantin and future business I am not going to say what I got the truck for, but put it this way. I researched well, and not one place in all of New England came close to that much truck for that low a price.
I felt listened to, taken care of, and respected. Thank you Brian for sticking with me. Thank you Foster for meeting my needs. Thank you Jeremy for all your honesty and knowledge. I can’t say enough about the boys at Cantin. Thank you
