Why Do U.S. Military Members Choose MAS? We’ll let them tell you themselves

Marine Lieutenant Colonel Holland took advantage of his exclusive MAS military car buying benefits while on board a ship.  MAS sales representative, Ruari Campbell visited the ship and helped Patrick order a 2022 F-250 Super Duty Lariat exactly as he wanted for delivery when he returned home stateside to Virginia.

When asked about his experience using MAS to purchase a Ford while serving overseas Patrick shared:

“Wanted to take a moment to talk about my experience with MAS. I was unexpectedly in the market for new truck while deployed. I heard about MAS from my fellow service members and was able to meet Ruairi Campbell when he came aboard our ship with less than a month before the end of our deployment. My situation was unique In that I needed a new car quickly upon return to the states, and I was in the market for a specific type of truck.

Ruairi was great at explaining how the process worked and the timelines involved. At the time I didn’t proceed with ordering new car as I would need one much sooner than what MAS and the manufacturers could offer in the current market.

However, what Ruairi did was take my Information and remained on the lookout for the type of truck I wanted. When another customer had to cancel, Ruairi saw it, reached out to me, and we started the process.

In less than 72 hours we had arranged everything to purchase the truck. Ruairi was in constant communication and helped me through the entire process. In less than a week I had the truck I wanted at a price that cannot be beat in the current market.

This buying experience was quick and fast, and it shows what MAS can do in the current market environment to help out a customer.

In the end this really came down Ruairi. His commitment to his customer and work ethic to see it through. I really appreciate the time and effort Ruairi took to put me a vehicle. I would recommend Ruairi and MAS if you are a service member overseas looking for a new vehicle.”

Thank you Marine Lieutenant Colonel Holland for sharing your experience. Enjoy your new Ford and most importantly thank you for your service!
