I moved to Atlanta many years ago simply to avoid the snow. I did not know that I was putting myself in the perfect position for all things Mercedes-Benz!
- Germany: The vehicles arriving from Germany dock in Brunswick, GA. That is just 300 miles south of my dealership! 5 hours from “VPC Ready” to “in Stock!”
- Alabama: The vehicles built at the factory in Tuscaloosa are just 225 miles west. They get on a car carrier and arrive a few hours later! Same day service!
- South Carolina: Sprinter and Metris vehicles arrive in Ladson, SC for re-assembly and then ship just 300 miles to me! The Chicken Tax can’t slow us down!
- Headquarters: MBUSA just relocated to Atlanta! This means I get to see the occasional test vehicle sneaking around, my training events will be close, and we will be a Mercedes-Benz town. Nothing beats community involvement for brand awareness!
Thanks Atlanta for turning out to be the center of Mercedes-Benz in the US!
