Member Loves Speed, Convenience of Truliant's Auto Buying Service

Contributed by: Heath Combs

Ryan Withers had three needs for his next auto purchase: speed, convenience, and a straightforward buying experience.

So he decided to become a repeat customer of Truliant's Credit Union Auto Buying Service®, or CUABS.

For 25 years, CUABS has been delivering low-priced, new and pre-owned vehicles to buyers across the Eastern United States.

CUABS is part auto dealership, part concierge service. The auto buying service is staffed by CUABS Auto Advisors who utilize all of their abilities, connections and persistence to track down vehicles and find the best deal for purchasers. You can find more information about contacting them at the bottom of this blog. 

Withers stays busy. He owns a home inspection business and needed a new work – and family – vehicle. Following a busier than usual winter, and anticipating a busy spring, he knew there wouldn't be much time. 

"My vehicle is my office. My cafeteria. Sometimes I feel like all I do is drive," Withers said. "I needed a new vehicle that was easier to park than a truck. And with plenty of room for the kids when we use it as a family vehicle."

Withers had previously purchased a Toyota Tundra from CUABS. This time he wanted a 2016 Jeep Wrangler. He exchanged a few emails with CUABS detailing make,model, color and other options for the new vehicle he planned to buy.

Within a few days, they’d found his vehicle. He completed a trade-in form online and financed the vehicle through Truliant – all in under an hour. He received more for his trade and paid less for his new Jeep. Withers said auto buying with Truliant saves time. 

“With CUABS, the process was seamless,” Withers said. 

Utilize CUABS auto experts, its vast inventory and network to buy your next auto. A CUABS auto advisor can help you find the vehicle of your dreams, usually within 24-to-48 hours – and take the stress out of auto buying. It’s goal is to provide you with the best price in a stress-free, low-pressure environment.
