Company History

Our business is a family run operation started by H.W. "Bill" Allen and his wife, Liz. Bill started in the automotive industry in 1972 working for a large new car lot. In 1979 he ventured out on his own. Liz, his wife, has been by his side all these years and currently handles all paperwork, title transfers, and DMV work for both the wholesale and the retail lots. Their son, Mike, joined the business as a wholesale buyer in 1986 and has enjoyed tremendous success working for his father.

H.W. 'Bill' Allen Bill has been in the car business since 1972 and has run his own dealership since 1979. He is one of the few dealers that have been able to successfully combine a wholesale operation with a Buy Here/Pay Here Retail Dealership. His success is a direct result of his unique ability to quickly determine what the customer needs and his determination to find it! Come in today and find out for yourself exactly what Bill can do for you.

Mike Allen - Wholesale Buyer / General Sales Manager

Mike Allen has grown up in the car business; from sweeping floors since he could hold a broom to detailing cars when he could reach the top of them. Since graduation, Mike has worked for his dad as a wholesale buyer, a hard part of the automobile industry requiring intense knowledge of used cars and trucks and their values. In the last 10 years Mike has taken over the retail aspect of the business and has dedicated himself to making his clients’ buying experience a pleasant one. Whether you are selling your vehicle or looking to purchase a new one Mike will be happy to serve you!

Liz Allen - Title Clerk

Liz has worked beside her husband since the beginning. She started out helping Bill move cars from lot to lot and has been around the dealership so much that she can handle it all. When there are more customers on the lot than salespeople, she will gladly get you the keys and help you with finding your next car or truck and help arrange the financing, if necessary. She concentrates on all the title responsibilities. She is the backbone of Allen's Auto Sales and the glue that holds us together!
