John Lee and Kelly live in Greenville, N.C. I just turned 57 and Kelly just turned … well, she will not let me say. We recently celebrated our 35th anniversary. Andy is 28 years old and completed 2 years at Chowan University in Murfreesboro, NC and 2 years at Pitt Community College in Greenville, NC. He now resides in Richmond, VA. With the experience he gained while at home we feel we have now “branched out” a bit. If you need assistance in the Richmond Virgina and surrounding area, please call us.
Some guys like to fish, some guys like to hunt, play golf or other hobbies. I like to piddle with diesel coaches. I am able to keep my coach at my home, pull it into my shop and do any and all maintenance myself. It also gives me an opportunity to share with Andy some of the ins and outs of do-it-yourself. I purchase approximately two a year, use it, enjoy it, check it out and sell it for very close to what I have in it. Again, it is just a hobby. I am not a dealer. The simple fact is: dealers have overhead. All those sales people, real estate, buildings, insurance, workmen’s comp., inventory. You avoid all that here.
I have always been intrigued by the motor coach lifestyle and realized this with the purchase of a gas recreational vehicle. Within 3 months I realized that the ride and handling of a gas RV was not for me. I quickly sold and moved into a diesel pusher. By chance (at an RV park on the coast one weekend) I was offered a reasonable price for that coach and moved into a bit larger diesel coach. Over the years I have continued that course and bought and sold several more.
I realized in talking with the buyers that the major undertaking of such a purchase can be very perplexing without a bit of experience. After all, it’s not every day, month or even year that the average person goes out and spends their hard earned savings on such an expense.
It can be just as perplexing to sell. Sellers are often faced with the daunting task of advertising, receiving and returning calls, being asked hundreds of questions that sometimes they haven’t a clue about, etc., etc.
On the sellers side, usually everyone requires their payoff and maybe a little something for their equity. But they do not even want to think about dealing with some of the “bottom feeders” out there. The individuals that are going to call them all hours of the night and practically “tell” them what their coach is worth.
On the other hand you have the legitimate buyers. The folks that have worked hard, maintained their credit and are very cautious about the hard earned dollars they have saved (usually over many years). They realize that a decent coach with a few comforts of home shouldn’t cost them the farm when they buy or sell.
With all this in mind … that is why I am here. I believe that a place such as this, where buyers and sellers can “meet” is desperately needed. I am offering a situation where I receive the initial contacts, clarify the serious buyers from the lookers and based on their wants and needs, match them with the appropriate sellers. Eliminating a lot of pressure and worry for both parties. If I do not have the experience needed for a particular coach, I know where to get it. I can supply both buyers and sellers with enough information that both should sleep with a solid peace of mind and neither having to endure any major financial setbacks.
