Lake Carroll Auto Sales is celebrating twenty-four years serving the west Georgia and east Alabama area. Opening in 1996 at 909 Bankhead Highway in Carrollton, owner and operator Ali, originally started out as owner of the Western Sizzlin Steakhouse which is now the location of M & J Buffet. After the restaurant’s closure at Lake Carroll Mall, Ali decided to open a car lot just a few steps away.
With a smile on his face Ali says, “I just love the people in this town. It’s a homely small town– everyone knows everybody.” His team has since grown the car lot from just a simple lot to a more centered e-commerce powerhouse. They have sold cars to families in Canada, in several countries in Europe, and even in Africa.
One of his team members, Kamran concentrates on their new focus with Facebook. He says, “There are currently a lot of competitive markets, and with our focus on Facebook, we select pre-owned vehicles to promote within Carroll, Douglas, and Coweta counties.”
Every day selections of pre-owned vehicles arrive at the lot where they first go into the mechanic shop for a full check. Ali says, “We have a total inspection guarantee that we stand by. It includes an oil change, service light checkup, leak spotting, and more. The car must be in great mechanical shape before it is sold to any customer.”
Kamran adds, “Our total inspection guarantee adds to the positive experience for the customer. Most of them are on either their second or third car from us. Seventy-five percent of our customers are returning.”
Lake Carroll Auto Sales offers a referral program that awards $100 to customers who refer someone who secures a purchase of a pre-owned vehicle. Kamran mentions, “We make sure everyone is happy and satisfied. We treat them as we want to be treated.”
Ali says, “We are here because of our customers. We would not be in business if it weren’t for our local community–they trust us.”
Lake Carroll Auto Sales is deeply involved in the community, and for twenty four years they have been giving back to it through sponsorship of community events and activities. Ali concludes, “Community made us, and because of that we are very thankful.”
