Why DePaula Ford is Your One Stop Automotive Shop
While you may find a variety of local car dealers in and around Albany, New York, chances are you won’t find a dealership quite like us. At DePaula Ford, we strive to be more than just your typical dealership. While other dealers may specialize in selling cars, we specialize in bringing our customers the ultimate dealership experience, providing them with everything they need to satisfy their automotive needs. We also make an effort to treat each person that walks into our showroom like a greater part of the DePaula family. As a result, we have earned a reputation for being one of the most attentive and dedicated dealerships throughout Albany and beyond. How do we make it all possible? Well, between our wide range of local car services to our deep commitment to our local community, we break all expectations, no matter what they may be.
The Benefit of Going to a Dealership You Trust
Unfortunately, going to just any dealership to have your automotive needs fulfilled isn’t the wisest decision. While one dealership may promise ‘great services’ ‘great cars’ or ‘great dealers’, there is no guarantee that this is the case. There are a plethora of dealerships throughout the Albany area, some great, others less-than-favorable. At one of these ‘not-so-great’ dealerships, you can find yourself ambushed by a sales team that is anxious about making a sale. You can find yourself rushed through the car buying process, and if you’re not careful can end up with a car that doesn’t necessarily satisfy your automotive needs.
This fact is particularly true when it comes to discussing maintenance and technical services. There may be a wide variety of discount mechanics and auto maintenance shops out there, but their discounted prices may come at a cost. Even a reputable auto shop may not be particularly equipped to handle your specific vehicle. Every car is different, and it is wise to have a technician that understands this fact and is prepared to handle all the challenges that automotive maintenance can invite. Going to your local auto shop or taking a risk at a discounted mechanic can put you at risk of getting subpar auto maintenance that may require even more maintenance to repair fully.
For all of these reasons, any auto expert will tell you to visit a dealership that has your best interests in mind, has a substantial reputation for good service, and is adequately equipped to handle all of your individual needs.
The DePaula Ford Experience
Enter our showroom, and you’ll be greeted by a team of experts who are ready and willing to answer any auto-related questions you may have. Not only is our team well-learned on all of the vehicles at our dealership, but they also have their finger on the pulse of the latest automotive news. So, if you have questions about what’s coming to the Ford family lineup in 2021, or what the latest unreleased Ford Bronco might look and feel like behind the wheel, our auto experts are the ones to go to.
Not only do we have expert ‘insider’ knowledge, but we’re also always adapting our auto buying process to better match the needs and expectations of the specific customer that is looking to buy. We understand that every driver is different, and as such, we tailor our services and our approach based on every customer’s individual unique need. We also understand that the car buying process can be intimidating at first glance, as there is plenty to account for. From discussing finances to walking you through a detailed test-drive, we make an effort to provide complete transparency. Far too often, other dealers skim passed the details rushing through the process to make a sale and collect a check. At DePaula Ford, we train our sales representatives to be patient, attentive, and understanding, ensuring that our customers leave our dealership completely satisfied whether they’ve bought a car or not.
While we may have a wide selection of new and preowned vehicles, we’re also known for our highly skilled services and parts department. To us, high-quality maintenance is incredibly important, as we believe it is one of the most influential factors in determining your overall driving experience. Regardless if you’re looking for a motor oil change, a tire rotation, or are in need of something more intensive, our auto technicians understand the ins and outs of every vehicle and will keep that engine of yours purring for years to come.
When you are ready for your next service or maintenance appointment, our hours are 7 am-8 pm Monday through Thursday, 8 am-6 pm on Saturday, and we are closed Sundays.
Other Community Services at DePaula Ford
At DePaula Ford, we also believe in giving back to our local community, whether that means donating to local Albany charities that assist the disenfranchised, to hosting special events where proceeds are donated to community foundations. It is our belief that part of being a great dealership means more than just offering a great selection of cars, it also means being an active member of our community and giving back to those who help us continue to provide some of the best dealership services throughout the Albany area.
