"Shop Smart, Buy Smart..." This is not just a motto at Houston Wholesale Cars, it's been the very business model for success. "We want customers to do their homework," says Gary Padilla. "That way, they will know we are offering the best quality cars for the best possible prices. Our vehicles are priced competitively according to the marketplace. We are able to buy in 'volume', which enables us to sell in 'volume' with a lower profit margin because we have a much lower overhead. We value our reputation and we only sell clean, quality, late model cars and trucks, and in doing so, have created a loyal customer base."
