Village Ford opened July 1, 2013 with 65 cars on the lot, eight service bays and 20 employees. It’s been almost three years since then, and those numbers have increased dramatically thanks to their customers’ support.
Village Ford proudly serves the communities of Belleview, Del Webb, Lady Lake and The Villages, and the surrounding Marion County areas. Due to the overwhelming response of these communities, Village Ford found itself needing to expand the car lot, the service bay areas and their personnel to accommodate first-time guests and regular clients.
Just how much have they grown? Village Ford sprouted from four acres to a little over nine and from 65 vehicles for sale on the lot to hundreds. The amount of service bays jumped from eight to 18, and the staff roster doubled to assist guests in any way possible.
All this expansion is meant for one group: the customers. A larger lot means a larger selection of vehicles to fit any individual’s or family’s needs, and a larger staff means more efficient service no matter the reason for your visit.
“We think the growth in only two and a half years says a lot about our business,” says Village Ford General Manager Scott Reece. “We not only want to be known for having the lowest price when looking at your next vehicle purchase, we try to help guide you in making an informed decision on what you’re looking for. We know price is important, so we have a low price guarantee, but we also have caring staff members who will be there long after the sale.”
Service at Village Ford is state of the art. They boast all the newest technology for diagnosing your vehicle and, unlike some service garages, get it fixed the first time. Each of their technicians are continually enrolled in courses to further their automotive knowledge and better serve clients.
Village Ford knows nothing feels worse than waiting hours in a dealership for a simple oil change—that’s why they won’t ask you to. The Quick Lane Tire and Oil Center on the premises is there to assist with all light repairs and routine maintenance like oil changes and fluid checks.
“We have the staff and the facility now that you don’t need an appointment, and we will have you in and out within 45 minutes for an oil change six days a week. For us, this expansion is completely for one reason: to better serve the communities that have made us their go-to Ford dealer for sales and service,” Scott explains.
Village Ford would like to invite Ocala Style readers to visit their updated facility and see the differences for themselves. There’s a standing invitation to take the grand tour.
“Be our guest,” says Scott. “Come have a cup of coffee, and let us show you around. We are proud to be here and proud to serve you.”
