All of us here at Frankman Motor Company would like our Customers and Vendors to know that our first and foremost priority will be the health and safety of all those who visit and service our facilities. We would like to thank all of the healthcare professionals who have put in the additional hours, come out of retirement, and put their own lives on the line to help those affected by COVID-19. We have taken steps in all of our departments to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve of infection in our city and state. We will continue to re-evaluate our processes daily to ensure that they are up to the standards recommended by our federal and local governments respectively. The COVID-19 pandemic is not a static situation and our policies and practices must reflect that.
Started in 1988 by a young husband and wife behind their acreage, filling out paperwork in their garage, and cleaning cars in their big red barn, we have transformed over the last 30 years to become one of the largest independent Pre-Owned Dealers in the Midwest! Their time and hard work has allowed Frankman Motor Company to turn into a multi-building 7 acre facility supporting over 50 employees and over 40,000 vehicles sold.
We continue to flourish thanks to this work ethic, and the work put in by our employees to provide the best experience possible to our customers. With a start in retail sales, we have grown to offer a full Service Center staffed by Certified Master Techs, a Classic and Specialty Department, Nationwide Transport Logistics services, a Finance Department that can work with a variety of banks, and Individualized Vehicle Consignment Services.
Now a second generation company, we are working to continue with the hard work and ideals set forth by founders, and always strive to adapt, improve, and better our company so that we may continue to provide the best possible experience to our customers and their families. We now offer new and exciting developments in car buying from the basics like online service center scheduling, as well things like live financing rates and adaptive realistic payments presented on our website, Virtual Vehicle Inspections, Nationwide delivery options, and digital online purchasing options!
Thank you to all of our past, present, and future customers that have made this possible, we look forward to many years of service to come for our customers, both local and international!
