Our Story

We are a family owned business with 20+ years in the used car industry. What started as a hobby and passion for mopars, became  a career choice for a young couple who were beginning their lives with their twin daughters. We started our first used car dealership in our hometown of Illinois. Our inventory started with personal family vehicles! It wasn’t long before we outgrew our first modest little lot and added our son to our family, at that point we relocated to a larger lot for our growing family, and our growing inventory!

Customer satisfaction  became as important to us as family. Over time we decided to try in house financing aka buy here pay here. Little did we know at the time that in house financing would be such a hit! With so many people on a fixed income and set budgets, our buy here pay here lot took off. With such a  high unanticipated  demand of buy here pay here, we had to open a second location to accommodate more inventory in order to serve our valued customers as well as future customers. 

Owning our own business we were fortunate enough to have our children with us and involved in our daily routines. After years of working long days, we finally got the opportunity to start vacationing! Nine years ago we had the opportunity to relocate to to the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri,  our first year here we opened our dealership known as 248 Auto Sales LLC, offering buy here pay here.It has been a continued success, and wouldn’t be possible without our family team members. We all strive to go above and beyond for everyone who chooses to purchase a vehicle within our establishment. We are in the business for the happiness we bring others being able to purchase a vehicle without the worries of whether or not they can afford it. 

We are not your ‘typical’ dealership, we encourage you to browse our inventory leisurely and refrain from the pushy sales technique, We don’t work for commission, we work with and for YOU, taking into consideration that everyone has circumstances of their own.

Being family owned you will always see the same friendly faces! Our strong belief for Customer Satisfaction has been a huge success with our dedicated strong family team members. When we say ‘Welcome to the family’ it is sincere. We know without all our valued family members and our dedicated strong family team, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thank you ALL and remember……..

Welcome to 248 Auto Sales LLC, where you’re part of the family!
