“In all of my 34 years of selling over 8,500 vehicles, this is the first time I was ever contacted directly by a loan officer who was looking to help someone out who was in a bad spot,” explains Dave Warford, salesman at Wiscasset Ford.
Dave was surprised to learn that all Downeast CU Loan Officers are given authority to help our members through tough financial situations, like replacing a broken down car, working with dealers to maximize trade-in values, and even car shopping.
Topsham branch manager, Lisa Pelletier adds, “On at least two occasions just last month, Dave helped us put members into 2017 and 2018 model vehicles. Both families were caught in a bad cycle of paying repairs on older, high-mileage vehicles. Dave was ecstatic to help these families out, both of whom are now paying the same payment or less, and their vehicles are fully covered with Vehicle Service Contracts, GAP and Debt Protection to ensure they are not caught in the vicious cycle of throwing money away on costly auto repairs.”
In fact, Dave was so impressed with the level of service at Down East CU, he transferred all of his accounts to us and even financed his new boat at the Topsham branch.
“You’re doing a lot of things right. Word of mouth will go far,” states Dave.
All of us here at DECU thank you for the kind words, Dave, and wish you smooth seas around Boothbay Harbor!
