Starrs Cars & Trucks opened its doors in April 1998. During our 14 years in business we have improved the quality of vehicles we stock on our lot, expanded to include property all the way to Lane Road and paved the entire lot to make our presence more appealing to our buyers.
Chuck Starr, President of Starrs Cars, has been in the automobile industry since 1985 where he started as a new car salesman. Over the next five years he moved to used cars sales/management and discovered his passion for working with customers. In 1990 he started at a small independent lot and learned everything he needed to know about running a used car lot. After building an extensive customer base he opened his lot in Perry and has been expanding his business ever since. After 14 years his customer base includes over 8,000 people with approximately 50% of that repeat/referral business.
The sales philosophy at Starrs Cars is very simple. Treat the customers like you want to be treated. We practice honest, ethical and fair sales techniques. We get to know and understand the needs of our customers and work our hardest to provide an automobile they can afford and love to drive.
We do not employ a General Manager or Finance Manager which keeps our costs low. Chuck Starr oversees the sales department and the salesmen arrange all their own financing. We have three salesmen, two of which are part-time buyers, two mechanics, two porters and an accounting/sales support staff of four.
Financing has become increasingly important in today's economy and the sales staff at Starrs Cars are experts at finding the best deal for our customers. We provide both bank financing and special financing. We accept VISA, MasterCard and discover.
Our marketing includes our website at starrscars.com, Auto Trader.com and Cars.com. We feel it is important to keep in touch with our customer base, so we send bulk mailing three times per year on average. We also mail out Birthday and Christmas cards to all buyers and co-buyers.
To accommodate our valued customers, Starrs Cars is open Monday thru Saturday, with late nights on Monday and Thursday. Our lot occupies two acres which is filled with approximately 100+ vehicles to choose from. Stop out and discover why our customers come from as far as Michigan and Kentucky to purchase our quality automobiles.
