Car World brings you easiest, fastest and friendliest in-house financing so you can drive away with your new ride same day.
Hawthorne, CA – May 20th, 2019 – Anyone who knows the auto industry knows the term “Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH).” It refers to an auto dealership that provides in-house financing to customers so their car loan is made directly with the dealer. As great as that sounds, the term “buy here pay here” has carried a negative connotation since it’s a common place for consumers with poor credit scores to purchase vehicles.
When the Awad family set out to re-brand their dealership in Hawthorne California, they wanted to completely flip the script on what a dealership specializing in the use of in-house financing could mean to consumers. Enter Car World. In a recent interview Belal Awad, Car World’s General Manager explained the intention of the gigantic rebranding of the store that for decades existed under the moniker “Repossess Auto Sales.” Awad stated, “We saw this as an opportunity to do in-house financing with the focus on making the experience friendly and easy for the customer. We want our clients to feel like family! Los Angeles is a unique, very car-centric place, and unlike other large cities, people don’t want to rely on public transportation, they want to have their own vehicles. But where do you go if the big brand dealer down the street won’t give you a loan? That’s where Car World comes in.”
The changes to Car World are far from just cosmetic. From the top down they are making changes to ensure that customers walk out the door with a smile on their face. The store has added a customer service department focused on making sure customers have a good car buying experience. Along those lines, they added a robust BDC (Business Development Center), and even doubled their service department mechanic staff, in order to provide 3-month warranties for every vehicle sold.
In his interview, Belal went on to say, “No one wants to go through a potentially exhaustive process at a dealership only to be turned down when they get to the credit application. Our dealership makes people feel like family and sets an expectation of what is needed from the moment they walk in the door so they know they can leave in a car they love that day.” One thing is for sure. Car World and the Awad family are in no way looking to slow down. With the re-branding and all recent upgrades, they are positioned to extend their share as one of the largest-volume “buy here pay here” auto dealers in California.
