Al Zahran

Hey there, my name is AL and I am the Manager at the ABC MotorCredit in Bedford Ohio, located right on the Bedford Automile. My time at ABC started in 2015 joining a company that had already been in business for 25 years! I was drawn to ABC because their core belief “Helping Good People with Bad Credit Get Great Cars Since 1990.” Having gone through tough times myself, I realized that a company whose mission is to provide people with a second chance could be a long-term home for me. I remember that very first sale where I had a customer burst into tears in utter disbelief that we were able to get them driving again. Even with the odds stacked against them we could create opportunity. I knew I was where I was meant to be. I am a laid-back person, still searching hard for my hobby which is a journey I enjoy. Just like the journey of getting you into a nicer car. I will go out of my way to make sure you are approved and driving. I hope that we have a chance to change your life for the better as we have done for so many of our customers already.
