Why the Blue Knob Auto Sales Experience is the Best Way to Buy a Used Car

The year was 1997. Titanic was in theaters, and there was no escaping Céline Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. Bill Clinton was serving his second presidential term. NASA launched the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft. The first Harry Potter book was published in England. Most importantly of all, Blue Knob Auto Sales was opening its doors in Duncansville, PA.

Back then, we had only 15 employees, barely any used cars to sell, and limited financing options. Today, we have sold over 100,000 vehicles — not only to drivers from the greater Altoona, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, and Hollidaysburg area, but to people all over the world. Though the 90’s already feel like a lifetime ago, that’s a huge amount of growth in a short time.

How do you account for our rise to the top? It all

Pennsylvania car dealers get limited opening for sales during coronavirus restrictions

People who have been shut out the past month from buying a car will be able to now that Gov. Tom Wolf has lifted some restrictions on dealerships.

“We’ve got permission for online sales, but the showroom still will be locked down. We’re not allowed to have people coming in (the showroom) and kicking the tires,” said Jeff Smail, general manager of the family-owned Smail Automotive Group on Route 30, east of Greensburg. Showroom visits are by appointment only, Smail noted.

Wolf signed an order Monday permitting the electronic notarization of documents needed for closing real estate property sales and for buying a vehicle. Dealerships had been closed for sales since mid-March, when the governor ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses to shut down, making Pennsylvania one of three states to clamp down

Car Shipping Quotes Calculator | Direct Express Auto Transport

The Eastern Seaboard states are generally considered to be New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Nearly one third of the country lives in the states bordering the Atlantic, which obviously means a lot of car shipping traffic.

New York is like a tale of two cities. The Big Apple is America’s largest city and its positive effect on car shipping extends into northern New Jersey, southern Connecticut and eastern Pennsylvania. Upstate New York has far more in common with New England, a mixed bag when it comes to vehicle shipping quotes.

Almost all of New Jersey is accessible except south of Atlantic City. In Delaware, it is Wilmington or bust, as southeast of there is exceedingly difficult for car shipping services. How much to ship a car there depends on exactly where? Most transportation services cringe at the prospect

Car News and Reviews in Malaysia

Here are some very important updates for those who are getting ready for interstate travel from May 7-10.

To recap, while interstate travel is still not permitted during the current relaxed conditional movement control order (CMCO) period, the government has opened a window of interstate travel opportunity specifically for those who have been stranded away from home, after fleeing the cities before the MCO started. However, it won’t be a free for all, and police permission is needed.

Earlier, PDRM released an interstate travel schedule for the different days – May 7 if you’re moving from KL; May 8 if you’re moving from Perak, Johor and Kelantan; May 9 if you’re moving from Perlis, Kedah, Pulau Pinang, Melaka and Pahang; and May 10 if you’re heading out from Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Terengganu. These are not the destination states, but your start point.

Dealer’s Guide to the Used Car Rule

Introduction

Most car dealers who sell used vehicles must comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) Used Car Rule. In fact, car dealers who sell, or offer for sale, more than five used vehicles in a 12-month period must comply with the Rule. Banks and financial institutions are exempt from the Rule, as are businesses that sell vehicles to their employees, and lessors who sell a leased vehicle to a lessee, an employee of the lessee, or a buyer found by the lessee.

The Used Car Rule applies in all states except Maine and Wisconsin. These two states are exempt because they have similar regulations that require dealers to post disclosures on used vehicles. The Rule applies in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.

This booklet defines the Rule’s requirements, explains how to prepare and display the Buyers Guide, and offers a
