Most people don’t have a stash of cash to buy a vehicle. At Autoshow Orillia, that’s not a problem.

“We work with the individual, look at their credit history and help them determine what they can afford,” explained Chad McIntyre, who has experience adjudicating credit and arranging financing.

He said Autoshow Orillia offers credit as low as 4.95% and can provide in-house financing through its affiliation with Auto Credit.

McIntyre, who was born and raised in Orillia, said making the transition from employee to owner involved a steep learning curve. He says a business loan and advice from the Orillia Area Community Development Corporation (OACDC) was critical.

Every car sold at Autoshow Orillia has a standard warranty – seven months or 7,000 kilometres. “We stand behind what we sell,” McIntyre said. “We won’t sell anything that we wouldn’t drive ourselves.”

Underpinning the business, he says, is a genuine interest in building long-term relationships with customers.

“We’re a small family-owned business,” McIntyre says. “We want people who buy cars here to be happy, to tell their friends and neighbours about the great deal and great customer service they got here. That’s our goal.”
