The $500-million SELCO Credit Union launched an auto brokerage it calls SELCO Auto Resource. In its first week, it delivered five vehicles to local SELCO members at what the credit union described as "significant cost and time savings."
To use the service, members contact the SELCO Auto Resource Advisor and provide their vehicle preferences. The vehicle is usually located within 24-48 hours, SELCO said. Both new and used vehicles are available, and trade-ins are accepted.
"Some of our members like to go to dealerships, and shop around to find the vehicle they want," said CEO Ava Milosevich. "But for those members who already know exactly what vehicle and options they want, and don't have the time to shop around, this service can really save them time and money."
