Merchants Automotive Group has been a leading new and used car dealer in the region of Hooksett, Manchester, Concord and Nashua New Hampshire for almost half a century. During that time they have emphasized the importance of excellent customer service, quality used vehicles, and top-grade car repairs and service. They’ve become a distinguished member of the greater Manchester, NH, region through all of their hard work, and the Singer family’s dedication to the community and the customers that they serve.

Their commitment to the New Hampshire community is illustrated through their recent (2007) reception of the “Making A Difference Award” from the Salvation Army. They raised over $16,000 during the annual Kettle Campaign for the charity. And in 2004, they also received the “Not Your Typical Business Award” from Citizens Bank as recognition as a New Hampshire business that has demonstrated leadership in commitment to customers, colleagues and community.

At Merchants Automotive Group, they are very pleased with their success as a used car dealership, but also in how they have been able to contribute to the community. So, when you’re looking for a used car in Hooksett, Manchester, Concord or Nashua, NH, come down to Merchants Auto and give them a try. Merchants Automotive Group also offers a referral program, giving bonuses of up to $300 for sending friends and family members to those that purchase a vehicle.

Founded by Irving Singer in 1962, “Merchants Motors” began as a small automobile dealership in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire. Mr. Singer subscribed to the philosophy that good customer service was the cornerstone of success and the foundation of any respectable community business. In fact, it was after he received a loan from Merchants Bank that Mr. Singer founded Merchants Motors, naming his company after the Bank for affording him the opportunity.

As the success of Merchants Motors grew, Mr. Singer’s customers began to realize that he offered something that few automotive businesses at that time thought to do – offering more than used car sales, but service and rentals as well. His customers appreciated the full-service approach and the business flourished.

Today, Merchants Automotive Group in Hooksett, New Hampshire includes Merchants Auto, Merchants Leasing, Merchants Nissan in Concord, New Hampshire, Merchants Van & Truck, as well as Merchants Service and CARQUEST Parts. Merchants is run by Irving Singer’s sons: Stephen, Robert, Alan, Jeffrey, Gary, and son-in-law Michael Sydney. Merchants Automotive Group is currently a $200 million corporation with more than 200 employees. Although Merchants Auto is one of New Hampshire’s largest used car dealerships, long-term fleet leasing is the primary revenue generator, with national clients such as TJX Corporation, Sax Fifth Avenue, Millipore, and the New York Times.

In addition to serving as one of New Hampshire’s largest independently owned dealerships, Merchants Automotive Group also provides unique commercial transportation needs through their leasing and rental divisions.

They’re always looking for more good people!
