Each week, Criswell Chevrolet’s Mike Furman delivers new Corvette Stingrays and Z06s to his customers who come from all parts of the country to work with the nation’s top Corvette seller.
In this week’s dispatch, Mike gives us some insight on how he is able to schedule the many Corvette deliveries he does each week for his customers. In addition to this week’s Corvette deliveries, Mike also visits the Free State Corvette Show in Ocean City, MD which had over 700 Corvettes turning out for the show.
This past Saturday I delivered close to a Bakers Dozen worth of new Corvettes and many were Z06’s. The week before I attended the Free State Corvette Show in Ocean City, MD (701 Vettes) that was capped off by a Parade down the Boardwalk with nearly 600 Corvettes! Charity is the theme of the show as the Spina Bifida Family’s of MD are very appreciative and were in attendance. *If you would like to see some delivery video’s and Car Show video’s please take a look at my FaceBook Page~ CorvetteFurman.
~Proper preparation is needed to deliver so many Corvettes in one day. I am off Fridays but I usually come in to set up keys/clean up sheets etc and then I arrive before 7am on Saturday to follow up on the details. After selling Corvettes for 38 years I better have this process down as I like to make it as seamless as possible especially when folks are coming from out of town.
~Joe and Linda S from Wilmington, NC called me 6-8 weeks ago as their local dealer was unable to provide them a Z06 allocation. So Joe reached out to John in Oregon thru the Forum and John told him to call me…2 days later his order was picked up and moving forward. I gave Joe a sight unseen appraisal on his 11,000 mile 2013 GS Cpe and yesterday he and his wife took the 6 hr ride up to exchange Corvettes.
~Mike and Robin H of Silver Spring, MD called me nearly 3 years ago and asked for some advice about their totaled 2001 Corvette. They felt the insurance company was not providing them with the proper payout for their beloved Corvette. I gave Robin some information etc and they ended up getting $7,000 more than what was originally offered. 6 weeks ago they reached out again and it was to order their new 2016 Corvette Stingray Convt in Arctic White with red interior and Black top.
~Tom C of Emmitsburg, MD called me last week looking for a loaded Z06 in a bright color…Tom picked out a loaded Race Yellow Z and drove it home much to his delight I assure you. Tom has owned many Sports cars and his favorite was his 1974 Ferrari…that is until he drove this Z06…he couldn’t believe every aspect of this Supercar.
~Mike P and his wife from Smithfield, VA have owned 18 Corvettes between the two of them. Mike called me up for the first time 900 days ago…I stayed in touch with him always supplying him with info and answers. He spotted a Shark Gray Z06 1LZ with Auto trans while it was still in the build process so when it came in this week he was ready to move forward. We made the deal over the phone and Saturday they came up and in less then 40 minutes were headed back home driving Corvette #18.
~James and Linda M of Pasadena, MD Factory ordered a new Yellow Z06 from me and were fortunate to get a Stage 2 allocation which has been harder to get due to constraints nationwide. Jim has owned many Sports cars and he had a perma grin all day Saturday. Linda has her eye on a ’59 Corvette so I can imagine garage space is a premium at their house.
~Danny V of Atherton, CA ordered his Laguna Blue Stingray to be drop shipped out West at a Chevrolet dealer near his choosing. After exchanging paperwork via Fed Ex he was able to watch his Corvette get unwrapped and take courtesy delivery that I had arranged.
~Marty C of Va stopped by to show me his Sunrise Orange Z06 that he picked up at the Corvette Museum a few weeks ago.
~Even delivered a new 2016 Volt to Jeff H from Fredricksburg, VA. I have delivered several hundred Volts since they first came out. It helps being in the Wash, DC area but much like the Vettes I sell them Nationwide.
~This week a very nice all original 1980 Corvette came by Criswell as did a 1965 Corvette.
~Pics from our Service Lane are always interesting. It’s like a Car show every day.
~Here are some pictures from the Free State Corvette Show held in Ocean City, MD for the last 29 years.
~Met Rich M from Egg Harbor, Nj for the very first time. We have communicated thru the Forum for years.
