I urgently needed a replacement work van at a low cost. Although I know that SB Auto specializes in very good vehicles at good prices I dropped by to see if Scott had anything on the lot in my range. I was very lucky to find he had a 2000 Astro work van with high miles at a very reasonable cost. Scott took the time and care to point out everything that was wrong (all minor) and provide me with reports and logged information on the vehicle. It has turned out to be an excellent vehicle, with no surprises and little cost to correct its flaws, and got me back on the road ASAP. I will be back in the future and heartily recommend SB Auto for anybody's commercial vehicle needs. Thanks Scott!
We purchased our 2005 van six months ago. I thought I would wait and see how the vehicle worked out. It runs as it was new. We are very happy with the purchase, and dealing with you and the boys was the most comfortable shopping experience I have ever had, from the time we arrived, did the test drive and you had us insured was just over an hour. I know where my first call will be for the next vehicle we need. The manner you conduct your business in is not competitive...it's the competition. Thank-you again.
I have purchased three (cargo) vehicles from you now and have been pleased with all of them. You and your team are honest and respectable. This last vehicle was
purchased based on internet pictures, that alone says something about your
business. We will do business again.
It's been many months since I purchased my 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan from you and I want you to know that I am as happy with it as the day I excitedly drove it out of your parking lot. As a woman shopping on my own I can honestly say looking for a used car was a nightmare. That is until I came across your website and met the two of you. You were straightforward, honest and one of the best things about your sales approach was the best price offer upfront. No haggling and feeling lost! You are truly providing a superior service. I would recommend your business to anyone and I look very forward to doing business with you again.

Thanks for finding just the right van for us. Full size 8 passenger vans are hard to find, especially one in the pristine condition that you located for us (did it even get used at all?). Thanks again and we will be contacting you when we need another vehicle.

The Cargo Van passed inspection with flying colors, only had to do tune-up, transmission service, radiator & rad thermostat. Mechanic loved the van and will probably seek out getting one from you.
Thank you again for your service and have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.
Hope your enjoying the sunshine.
I just wanted to let you know that in 2 more weeks it will be one year since we bought our Dodge Grand Caravan from you and we are as happy with it as the day we bought it. I am grateful (and relieved) that it has given us no trouble; there is always concern in the back of one's mind when buying a used vehicle. We will definitely look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Over the years, as an entrepreneur myself, I've had opportunity to do business with all types of folks... good, bad, mostly in-between. I have yet to meet anyone who was more straight forward and easy to deal with as you. Your website is more informative than anything I saw in nearly 15 hours of internet surfing. BUT... more importantly, your disclosures and photo montages are truly unique in your industry. What I saw in the photos is what I saw in your immaculate, unpretentious showroom. I felt that I had seen the car before the first time I laid eyes on it. There wasn't a hint of the typical auto sales feeling to any aspect of our transaction. It took me about 15 minutes to know that whichever vehicle I bought, I was going to buy it from you. You gave me some sound advice and steered me to a vehicle that I actually hadn't really come to look at it. Subsequently, your advice has proven to have been understated dramatically. Not only do I NOT have any "buyer's remorse" (a first for me), I am more confident a month later that I got an exceptional value on great transportation for my wife and daughters. The whole transaction with you, from the time I spent looking to the time I walked out the door with the keys didn't take an hour in total. Thanks to your walking me through a relatively simple process, and making sure I had all the documents in order before I left your office, bringing the car back to the U.S. took about 15 minutes at the border and didn't cost one cent. I'm so happy in fact that I've passed your name on to at least five of my friends in the last month... and will continue to do so whenever I know someone is looking for a quality vehicle. I'm so happy that I hope to be able to buy a new car for myself in the near future and when I do... I'll be shopping at S&B Automaster and dealing with my new friend, Scott Smith.
Best wishes for your continued success.

This note is to let you know how pleased we are to have
purchased a car from you. You are not a typical "used car salesman", no high pressure or false claims were made. The car was prepared for delivery in a professional manner. I could not find any surprises when I checked it out prior to our trip to northern Alberta. If I could not see the odometer I would have thought it was a new car. Keeping up the good work will assure you of continued success.

We love our new Windstar! It was such a huge upgrade for us--it became the best Christmas present we received. Thanks again for your service and low prices. We searched for vans for quite some time and SBAuto was consistently lower priced (thousands) than anyone else; dealers or private sales. The mystique was taken out of vehicle shopping for us with your website (ALL the information posted), your showroom and your own approach. We will tell anyone purchasing a vehicle to check with you first and last.

We are thrilled with the vehicle that we recently purchased from S&B Automaster, a 2002 Ford van. It runs like a top. Best of all you gave us a very fair deal on the price, and were professional in every respect. We're glad that we made our vehicle purchase at S&B. Have a great year!

To anyone interested in purchasing a Car/Truck/SUV:
You must go to automasterstrading.com and check out the great deals on this website because you won't find a better offer anywhere else. My wife and I spent weeks scouring newspaper ads, looking through countless auto magazines, and surfing the web to find the best buy on our next vehicle. We found it at Automasterstrading.com. The low prices and pictures of mint condition automobiles seemed to good to be true, so we E-mailed Scott Smith (President of Automaster Trading). Within the hour Scott had responded back to answer all of our questions and supply additional information. It was the exact opposite of what we had expected from a car dealership! There was no high pressure to buy. There was no pesky salesman calling. There were no cheesy tactics to trick you into making a purchase you weren't comfortable with. There was just Scott and his Rock Bottom Prices!
After several e-mails back and forth my wife and I decided to make the 3.5 hour trek to Sumas to see if Scott and his great deals were real! We were delighted to find the SUV of our dreams at a price lower than anywhere else we could find (over $5,000 than Kelly Blue Book). Scott and his wife made purchasing the vehicle quick (less than an hour) and painless, in fact, the whole experience was most pleasurable.
We cannot recommend highly enough doing business with Scott Smith at Automasterstrading.com. You won't regret it.

This took a while because I have been pre-occupied driving my Mini Van all over creation. We love it so much! Our children love it too, and we all feel like we are driving a house around compared to our VW Golf! It is infinitely more roomy than our old family car, and we are thrilled every time we pile into it to go anywhere.
Our experience with you was absolutely wonderful. You were so patient and understanding throughout our bank ordeal's, and for that we thank you. The van was in beautiful condition when we picked it up from Rob at your Sumas location. It was a great ride back home; however, it was interesting driving something so ?big?. Needless to say, I quickly became very used to it, and can't quite bring myself to drive the VW anymore.
We are sure to tell everyone we know about you and our experience, and hope to send you some business as a result. We would be happy to offer our assistance as a reference if someone wanted to call us and ask questions.
You can be sure that we would call on your company again if we are ever in the market for another vehicle. Thank you again for the most pleasant experience, and for a wonderful automobile!!

As you probably already know the car arrived and it's great!!! It is as handsome as the photos and as clean as it looked also. It even still smells new. Our idea originally was for Explorer to be for our 19 year old son who now drives a '74 BMW 2002 back and forth to college. It's prone to break downs and he recently lost a good friend in a car wreck which made me want him to have airbags. Now that it has arrived, I'm thinking he just might have to inherit my old '93 Jeep.
I am so pleased and you have been incredible. I am going to mark your website on our "Favorites" list and check periodically when the time comes we're finally in the market for something to replace the Jeep. I will definitely leave positive feedback on eBay.
Thanks for everything. I cannot say enough good right now. The Explorer is great - I have to go check the garage every now and then just to look at it.
This was an Email from one customer to another previous client of ours:
QUESTION: I am interested in a vehicle that automasterstrading.com has for auction. I am very interested if you had any difficulty with yours. I am especially interested if registering the car in the U.S. created any difficulty for you. Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.
ANSWER: CANADIAN AUTO IN THE FORM OF A MAN NAMED SCOTT SMITH, WAS MOST PROFESSIONAL AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I SHIPPED THE SUV FROM BC (VANCOUVER) TO ONTARIO AND THEN TO KINGSTON BY TRUCK. CROSSING THE BORDER WAS NO PROBLEM AND I OBTAINED A 10 DAY TEMP TAG IN CANADA TO DRIVE INTO USA, THAT COST @ $10. CDN. THE CANADIAN AUTO (SCOTT SMITH) WILL PROVIDE ALL DOCUMENTS YOU NEED TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS AND WITH THE COUPLE MORE THAT CUSTOMS GIVES YOU, YOU WILL HAVE ALL YOU NEED TO REGISTER INTO THE USA AND GET YOUR TAGS AND NEW TITLE. THE VEHICLE ARRIVED IN BETTER CONDITION THAT I EXPECTED, AND IN ALMOST
SHOWROOM CONDITION. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE.

We purchased a Mazda MPV from you a few years back, and we were very happy with the truck and your service.
In the next few months we will be trying to pick up a newer used ford 4 door 3/4 ton diesel. I know these are hard to come by, but do you see yourself getting something like this in at some point?
I know of one for sale in Calgary, but I'm not sure if its smart to purchase vehicles from there.
If you ever get on of these in, could you give me a call.
Feedback left. Border crossing was a breeze. I recommend that crossing (Canada Hwy 13 South just West of Abbotsford).
Thanks, Rhett Seattle, WA
Hello Scott. Everything went great. Despite a strong headwind, it drove smooth all the way home. I think it will be a great vehicle for us and I will definitely refer customers your way.
Michael Seattle, WA
Sorry I'm so late in getting back with you. Everything went great. The Expedition is awesome. We love it. I will get a copy of the port of entry paper to you as soon as I can. Thanks for everything. This was the easiest and most pleasant dealing we have ever had when buying a vehicle. I wish I could have had more room on the feedback. Hard to say what I wanted to in that short of sentence. Plus it cut me off anyway it was suppose to be AAAA++++ at the end but it only put in one A. Well if anyone wants someone to talk to about you or the rigs we saw have them call or email me. Thanks again.
P.S. Tell Rob hi for us.
Well I am a happy camper!!
The car seems great (looks great, drives great, smells newish).
The importation process, buying, etc was smoothly handled by you, the insurance guy, and Rob. It all went well (except the new border guy almost kept the importation document).
It seems like I saved a bit of money going this route. Even with full airfare, it would be worth it.
It was nice meeting you Scott. You made the process smooth and as easy as buying milk. I wish you well.
Everything is great, thanks again for all your help. Everything went a lot smoother than expected.
John Seattle, WA
Thanks again for the wonderful car, great buying experience. The car runs like a dream. I will definitely tell the story with a AAA +++ rating on EBay as soon as I finish registering it today. I have talked to several people about you and your people already, highly recommend.
I would like to thank Scott for the good service and the no sale pitch. I mike and my wife sherry are very happy with our van. We will tell our friends and family about sbauto.com
