Who is C&S Motorsports?
-We are mainly an independent wholesale dealership comprised of a few wholesalers that do most of the purchasing. We buy from numerous places and then bring the vehicles back for inspection and reconditioning. Once they are deemed appropriate for sale, we cherry pick the nicest examples to offer for sale to the public before giving other dealers a chance to purchase at wholesale. We look at it as a reward to our customers for researching and shopping online.
Originally named Corvette Specialists (C&S) and founded in south Omaha back in 1958. When first opened the emphasis was solely on Corvettes. As the years passed, business began to change with the age of the internet, and our business model was restructured. We opened our current location back in 2006 with an emphasis on performance and classic cars in general, not just corvettes. Again the market changed, as it did for everyone, back in 2008. We then got into the wholesale market, including a wide range of years, makes and models and have been doing so ever since.
Who can buy?
-Anyone can buy from us here at C&S Motorsports. The buying process is arguably the least stressful experience you will ever encounter buying a pre-owned vehicle. We have numerous banks and lending institutions to ensure the best possible financing rates for our customers. No credit, bad credit...we will do our best to get you into the next car of your dreams.
Where is C&S Motorsports located?
-Located in the heart of the Midwest in Omaha, Nebraska. We have an 11,000 SQ. FT. indoor facility to house our inventory. Just off Interstate 80 and Highway 370 on the southwest end of Omaha (Click here for Map).
Where do we source our inventory?
-We have many different sources for the cars and trucks we stock. Vehicles may be purchased directly from large franchise dealers, dealer only sales, off-lease sales, from credit unions and banks, as well as trades we take in. The vehicles that we retail are usually late model and have low miles. Some vehicles may still have a factory warranty. We resell cars with clean titles only, this means we never retail: salvage, rebuilt, reconstructed, insurance claim, flood or other gray market vehicles unless specifically noted.
Do you have all titles on hand for your vehicles?
-We do not always have titles on hand for vehicles that are placed for sale. Titles may be in transit from banks, from other dealerships, from the state, and from a host of other reasons for normal processing delays in title paperwork. We are a licensed and bonded dealer in Nebraska and guarantee clear titles on all vehicles we sell. If having the title on hand is of critical importance to you, please call to verify its disposition prior to contracting for sale.
What “other” fees are there other than the purchase price?
-None! We do not like surprises and neither do you. There are no service fees, documentation fees, or anything for that matter that we will throw at you after negotiations other than the keys. We collect no taxes. Taxes are paid where the vehicle is registered.
How is vehicle shipping arranged?
-Shipment of the vehicle is arranged by the purchaser. There are numerous ways to ship, different time frames and different prices. We are here for any service we can be throughout the shipping process. From pointing out nationwide shipping companies such as: uShip, DAS, United Road, Passport Transport and a host of many others, to verifying drivers info before letting the car go. Google “vehicle shipping estimators” for a round about quote and timetable. We meet with drivers and do whatever the buyer wants us to do: photocopy drivers info, send video of loading, call to make aware…whatever suits your comfort level. All sold vehicles are kept indoors until delivery. You will want your insurance to be effective at the end of the transaction, before being shipped. Make sure you find a reputable company that is properly insured.
What forms of payment do you accept?
-Cash, certified cashiers check, personal check, wire transfer (recommended for out of state purchaser.) Verification of cashiers checks and personal checks will be made and the title will be held until the funds clear.
Do you offer any financing?
-We have numerous banks and lending institutions to ensure the best possible financing rates for our customers. No credit, bad credit...we will do our best to get you into the next car of your dreams.
I live out of state, how does the buying process work if I am paying cash?
-Nearly half of the vehicle transactions that take place here at C&S Motorsports are to out of state buyers. Wire transfer is encouraged but we do accept cash. Many times there are more than one buyer looking into the vehicle therefore that is why we encourage the wire transfer. Cash is a gamble assuming the car will still be here when you arrive to the dealership. We complete the paperwork (2 signatures for out of state buyers), count the money and you drive off in your new car. In the case of a wire transfer the paperwork would be done through fax or email and the car is then immediately held once funds transfer.
I live out of state, how does the buying process work if I am getting financing from my local bank/credit union?
-Nearly half of the vehicle transactions that take place here at C&S Motorsports are to out of state buyers. Wire transfer is encouraged but we do accept financing from your local bank or credit union. The funds will need to be verified before taking delivery. Once verified and paperwork completed (2 signatures) the car is available to leave. The title will be sent after the funds clear.
I live out of state and want to fly in and drive my new car home.
-Great! We have done this many times. Please make arrangements to fly into Omaha Eppley Airport, which is located about 20 minutes from our dealership.
