In the world of used auto sales there are plenty of horror stories of unscrupulous salesman and a lot of lemons. In Upper Darby, there is one used car dealership that is a stand out in helping the buyer get their money’s worth. Veteran Motors located at 155 Garrett Rd, Upper Darby, is owned and operated by Hugh Farrell, an Upper Darby native and graduate of Penn Wynne High School. Veteran’s Motors isn’t just a name to Hugh though. He named his dealership after those who fought to defend our country including his dad John Farrell who fought in the Pacific during WWII, Hugh’s uncles, 5 of them who all served their country including his Uncle Jerry Farrell who was a paratrooper during the Korean War.
Hugh, himself, is still in the Army Reserves. Hugh is a Platoon Sergeant in the 367 MP CO. Hugh has served in Afghanistan and Iraq. As Hugh tells it calling his car dealership Veteran’s Motors was done, “as an acknowledgement of my family, myself and also the sense of identity it resonates with the community, honesty, integrity, and overall customer service.” For Hugh, taking care of his customers is number 1. One customer remarked that with Veteran Motors, “Found a great pre-owned car at Veteran Motors and they got me financing when big franchise dealerships in the area said they couldn’t help me. The owner was great to deal with and he’s in the military, so why wouldn’t you support his business when he risks his life for our country?!” Another customer said of Veteran’s Motors, “I want to thank this man for making my purchase an easy process. My Tahoe runs great. This gentlemen helped me get a loan when I thought it was impossible with my current financial situation.”
If you are in the market for a new used car there is no better place than Veteran’s Motors. Open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. You won’t be disappointed
