What Borgman Means By “Fair Trades & Honest Deals” in Grand Rapids, MI

February 28th, 2018

FairTradeDealBanner_960x350

Treating Customers Right is a Borgman Family Tradition

Borgman has been giving auto shoppers in Grand Rapids and West Michigan fair trades since we opened our doors almost 60 years ago. When Fred Borgman founded the dealership back in 1960, the concept of being honest and transparent with his customers served as the cornerstone of the business. Fred outfitted his sales team with red sports jackets to make them more visible – and therefore accountable – around town. Soon, Borgman became known as “The Home of the Redcoats,” which was synonymous with friendly, professional, and transparent conduct.

Times have certainly changed since then, but our dedication to Fred Borgman’s vision has not. Borgman Ford Mazda is still family-owned and operated, with Fred’s grandson Matt sitting as General Manager and ensuring that everyone who visits is treated with respect.

What is a Borgman Fair Trade Deal?

When we say we give everyone a “Fair Trade Deal,” here’s exactly what we mean: when you bring your current vehicle to us, we offer you what it’s worth. It doesn’t matter if you intend to trade it for a new vehicle or sell it outright – the number is the same. No low-balling, “x-over-your-trade” shenanigans, predatory guaranteed-approval-style lending, or bull. Read the rest of this entry »

10 Tips for Safe Holiday Travel

November 22nd, 2017

TurkeyFiesta2Borgman Ford Mazda wishes you and yours a safe and happy holiday. Whether you’ll be spending your time with loved ones in the greater Grand Rapids area, or taking your family on a road trip, please take care on the roads. AAA projects 50.9 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving, a 3.3 percent increase over last year. The 2017 holiday weekend will see the highest Thanksgiving travel volume since 2005 with 1.6 million more people taking to the nation’s roads, skies, rails and waterways compared with last year.

Nobody wants to hear this, but holiday travel, combined with holiday drinking, will result in hundreds of deaths and injuries this holiday season.

Over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend alone, the National Safety Council estimates 433 deaths and 52,300 injuries requiring medical attention may occur because of car crashes. But the annual projection isn’t meant to scare you off, the nonprofit group says. It’s meant to remind you to take good care on the road and remember, we’re all in this together.

Red Cross Holiday Safety Tips:

1. Make sure your car is in good condition for a road trip.

2. Pack an emergency preparedness kit and supplies in the trunk.

3. Share travel plans with a family member or friend.

4. Check the weather along your route and plan for travel around any storms that may be coming.

5. Be well rested and alert.

6. Buckle up, slow down, and don’t drive impaired.

7. Follow the rules of the road and use caution in work zones.

8. Give your full attention to the road. Avoid distractions such as cell phones.

9. Make frequent stops. During long trips, rotate drivers. If you’re too tired to drive, stop and get some rest.

10. If you have car trouble, pull off the road as far as possible.

Borgman Ford Thanking The Community For Helping Support The Grandville Band Program

Borgman Ford would like to thank all of the people in the Grandville community, band parents, friends, and family who made time to stop by last Saturday to test drive a new Ford. Thanks to an excellent turnout, we are pleased to share that the Grandville Band Boosters raised over $4,000 for uniforms, equipment, student scholarships, and travel expenses!

FordDrive4UR_Vehicles_390x293During the Ford Drive 4 UR School Event on Saturday, people came out and visited us at Grandville High School to test drive a New Ford. For every person who went out for a spin, Ford pledged $20 to the band program.

To date, Ford “Drive 4 UR” events have helped schools and community organizations all across the country raise over $35 million dollars for their associated causes. For more information, visit FordDrive4URcom.

Thank you again to everyone who came out and made Saturday a rousing success. We could not have asked for better weather and met so many nice people throughout the day. We enjoyed seeing some familiar faces turn up as well! Together, we really made a difference to further music education in the community.

We hope to see you all again next year!
