Anderson Motors is a second generation, family owned business. It all started in the 1960's when Eddie Anderson (1938 - 2015) opened his first lot, with a handful of cars, just north of Syracuse NY, in Fulton. For two decades, Eddie ran a well respected retail business, that is still spoken highly of, to this day.
By the mid-1980's, Anderson Motors (NY) was sold, and the entire Anderson family had moved to Florida, at different times, in different areas. For the next 10 years, Eddie did what he did best: meet people & buy/sell cars (wholesale).
Somewhere around 1988, I (Rick Anderson), decided to admit my own fate, and join Anderson Motors on a part time basis. I did this while putting myself thru college, graduating UCF in 1994. With a child on the way, I was at a crossroads. Take a job offered locally at Edgewater HS (my degree is in Secondary Education EH), or continue in the car business with my dad, on a full time basis. I decided to choose DAD, and we were basically business partners from that point forward. He had moved to Ocala along the way, making new friends & business contacts, and I did the same, only in Orlando. As my dad aged, his participation was less, and mine was more. I took over as principal owner around 2005.
In 2007 I purchased the property we are now located at. Around that time the Anderson Motors business model changed dramatically, from primarily wholesale to retail (our original model in upstate NY, when I was a kid).
Since then, it has been full steam ahead. While we will never set any records for volume, we may very well set some records for repeat sales and referrals. The car business is full of challenges (as cars are machines, and machines do break), but we have met the challenge and developed a tremendously loyal customer base, of which we are extremely grateful. Our knowledgeable sales staff, and my personal experience (on the buying side) adds up to a lot of years (over 100) in a crazy industry. We use that experience to to inform our clients and help with the best decision on purchase. We really do take great pride in delivering a quality product and standing behind the sale.
