Keeping in Touch with the Neighborhood
ABC MotorCredit has two buy here, pay here used car dealerships serving Akron, Bedford (Cleveland), Canton, Tallmadge and Youngstown. For over 20 years, we have been actively involved with the great people that live here and work here, and make sure we support the community where we live and work.
That’s five different Ohio communities that we are involved with on a daily basis: connecting with customers, employing many full-time and part-time Ohio residents, and giving back to local charities sometimes in small ways, sometimes with large donations of time, energy, resources, and money.
How do we choose which charities to support? From our customers and employees. We have many employees that not only work at ABC MotorCredit, but live in the area as well. And it’s their suggestions that guide our decisions. The transportation problem solvers at each of our locations spend a lot of time getting to know the customers as well, and many ideas come from those relationships.
We are making a difference every day at ABC MotorCredit by providing good people with bad credit the opportunity to get on the road to success.
And we are also making a difference in our communities, thanks to our employees and customers, by providing sponsorships, fundraising, and volunteer efforts to the communities and neighborhoods where we live and work.
