Rick Lane - Owner
I have always loved cars. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s there were hundreds of cool and exciting cars. Every year was a different style. I worked as a porter in the summer beginning at age 13. When I turned 21 I started selling new cars. At age 26 I became a used car manager, then new car manager.
From 1984 to 1991 I was a partner in a van conversion company. Our company bought new vans and converted them into passenger vans. I helped in the designs of these vans from the fabric on the seats to the custom paint on the exterior. Our vans were sold both direct to the consumer as well to dealers in the area to offer on their showroom floor.
From 1991 to 2002 I focused strictly on the wholesale side of the car business. Selling cars to dealers in our area gave me the opportunity to meet and make many friends and business associates. Many of whom I continue to do business with today.
In 2002 I decided to open Berea Auto Mall. Opening the dealership I operate today gave me the opportunity to increase my business by offering cars that I used to sell to other dealers to the general public, at a wholesale price. I do my very best to only offer good quality cars and trucks at a fair price. I am grateful for each and every one of my customers that helped me get this far. At Berea Auto Mall our customers are our friends.
I look forward to the chance to earn your business.
