Mr. Bill Selling Cars & Trucks In Elgin

August 14, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

One needn’t travel far to buy a new or used car or truck.
Jonny Dodge Chrysler-Jeep Inc. now has a fulltime salesperson manning their showroom at 107 N. 2nd Street.
Mr. Bill (Eby) was busy on the phone Monday morning answering a prospective buyer’s question about a diesel pickup.
Sitting in an office with a view of Highway 14, Eby spoke about automobile sales with an ease which one gets from spending a lifetime in the business. Originally from O’Neill, he worked in Neligh at the Hilltop for 27 years before going back to O’Neill to work at the Chevrolet garage there. Then, it was on to Memphis, Tenn., where he spent time driving trucks before finding his niche selling Chevrolet and Subaru vehicles before recently returning to Nebraska.
“I’ve been around cars practically my entire life,” he said after getting off the phone.
The biggest secret to selling automobiles, he said, is liking people. “I like to visit with people,” he said. In doing so, they develop a trust that you can and will take care of their wants and needs “the best way we can.”
While the car dealership specializes in Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and RAM vehicles, he said he will work to find the right kind of vehicle (any brand) to meet the customer’s needs.
One day, he and his wife Linda hope to be able to move to Elgin and become part of the community.
Eby is at the showroom Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is available, by appointment, on Saturday by calling (402) 843-2250.
