joe was wonderful he explains everything to you from start to finish and gives you a good fair price selling a car should be easy and it was with joseph thanks
Joseph makes the process of selling a car easy. He is a fair gentleman and takes the time to make sure that you understand everything. He explained everything to us. One of our cars had previously been in an accident. He explained to us that the car would have a depreciated value as a result of this(20-30%). He checked our other car which we had purchased brand-new from a dealership. To our knowledge it had never been in an accident or repainted. He took measurements that showed that the car had been in accidents and that there was prior roof damage. This was surprising to say the least. Joseph took the time to inform me that it is often a practice that previously damaged cars are sold as new and that there is no record of the repair on car fax. As such, I was worried about a purchased that I was about to make the same day. It was a pre-owned vehicle. Joseph took the time to actually come with me to the dealership and inspect the car(what a relief it was to have a professional in theheck out the care before I bought it) In this day and age of people being extremely busy Joseph took the time to help us out to make sure that the purchase of our vehicle would be free from damage. The most interesting thing to note is that without somebody like him to guide us through the process, there is a high likelihood that when one purchases a car there maybe pre-existing damage that is not recorded on the car fax statement. This type of damage can significantly impact the value of the vehicle and in most cases would result in a buyer walking away from the deal. I can safely say that Joseph gave us a fair price for our vehicles, took time to explain everything to us, and went the extra mile to help us in our next vehicle purchase. It is a rare quality to find someone who is so knowledgeable, fair, and generous with his time. I would definitely recommend seeing Joseph if you need to sell a car.
Joseph thank you so much for all your help. You went over and beyond to help me. I highly recommend CarNation to anyone looking to either buy or sell there vehicle, you will get a one of a kind experience. None of that dealership nonsense, just down right great customer service from a true professional
Working with Joseph really took the stress out of what otherwise could have been a confusing, unclear, intimidating situation. It was such a relief to talk to a real human being who genuinely cares about the customers he deals with, without having to worry about whether or not I could trust his recommendations. What particularly impressed me was his readiness to try multiple options to get at the best possible outcome for me. And the entire process felt very transparent. Highly, highly, highly recommended!
Joseph is simply the best to work with. I requested an online estimate and got a call back within hours and scheduled an appointment the next day.
Took my car to review, we finalized a deal in less than 30 mins and I walked out with a happy face and relief that i did sell my car to the right person.
All the documents after the purchase reached me in no time. I was more than pleased by the entire transaction.
Joseph was extremely helpful and knowledgeable I would definitely deal with him again.
I was looking to get rid of our 2007 VW Eos. We live in Jersey City and walk or take public transportation everywhere. We were using the car less and less, so between parking, insurance, etc. it was hardly worth keeping. I took it to a couple of dealers who completely low-balled me. I don’t expect top dollar from a dealer, but 5 to 6 thousand dollars below retail? That seemed a little much. I didn’t want to post the car on ebay or Craigslist because who wants to deal with that aggravation? I thought I was out of options, then I found Joseph at Carnation through an Internet search. It was a bit of a schlep to get the car out to L.I. but I am very glad I did. Joseph did a thorough exam of the car and suggested that filing an insurance claim for the few scrapes on the car and then repairing them would help the value a lot. I left the car with Joseph that day. I’m not the kind of guy to turn over my car keys to someone I’ve know for 20 minutes, but something told me I could trust Joseph to take care of the situation. Again, very glad I did. I was honest with Joseph about why I wanted to get rid of the car. A lot of other people would take this as a sign that I was desperate to get rid of the car and offer me some lame amount for it (like the dealers did), but that is not what he did.
According to Joseph, there were a few options: He could sell the car at an auction, sell it dealer-to-dealer, or look for a retail buyer. He very clearly explained the pros and cons of each. I told Joseph that I would leave it up to him to pick the best way to go. Joseph spent a lot of time I don’t normally leave decisions like this up to other people but I had a sense I was in good hands. Within a few days, Joseph had come up with an idea how each of the three scenarios would play out in terms of money. I decided which way I wanted to go (dealer to dealer which would be quicker than a retail sail) and that was about all I had to do. Joseph handled paying off the bank, all the paperwork on his end (with a few signatures from me) and every other aspect of the transaction. In short, Joseph took one of my least favorite activities: buying/selling/leasing a car and made it pretty effortless. Thanks again Joseph!
Well I went last friday to carnation and met with Joseph a wonderful man, I got the best customer service, the best price for my car! And also Joseph was kind enough and gave me advise for the future regarding cars. He also took allot of his time to explain everything to me. He was not in a hurry just to make the deal and send you on your way like other places will do, which was very important to me. I really like the place and Joseph ! I recommend everybody to go there to make their life easy and simple. Thank you again Joseph for everything looking forward to work with you again in the future. Sincerely , Maya Skalmer
Joseph is the first person we officially met with to sell our car. after we talked to him, we felt there is no need for meeting with a second person. He is very very friendly and honest, He makes me feel that the purpose he is running this business is to help people solve their problem instead of making money. I definitely recommend people who want to sell the cars to find him and talk to him, he is the one that gives you full satisfaction.
I first met Joe about 2 weeks ago when he texted me about a motorcycle that I had placed on eBay and Craiglist for sale. We finally met when he came to my home to pick up the bike to take to his business. When my husband and I met Joe, we knew he was the one we wanted to do business with. From the time he took my bike to his store to the time it took to complete the business transaction, Joe was very PROFESSIONAL, honest, clear about the process and how long it would take. Joe is not a bullshitter. I would recommend anyone to do business with Joe. He is not there just to make a dollar. He really cares about the business and wants to satisfy his customers. Thank you Joe for making this process easy for me. I hope we will do business again. I give Joe and his crew four STARS.
