A true visionary, Sébastien Bisaillon founded Automobile En Direct.com in 2001. The used car dealership on the South Shore, then named Bisaillon Automobile, was a life-long dream come true. Not yet 30, Mr. Bisaillon already had years of experience in the automotive field, but wanted to offer his customers a unique and innovative concept. He wanted to try something new, out-of-the-box: a car dealership devoted entirely to pre-owned vehicles.
The adventure began on St-Pierre Street, in St-Constant, with a modest inventory of two used cars. Before long, however, customer satisfaction, quality of service and a professional follow-up combined to create a demand that outstripped supply. Soon, dozens of satisfied owners and their cars were descending every month on the small lot. Backed by close partners who believed strongly in the business, Sébastien Bisaillon made the calculated bet of moving the dealership. The ever-growing team relocated to Route 132 in St-Constant, where the business still thrives today. At the time of the move, the dealership adopted the name Grossiste en Direct, eventually becoming Automobile En Direct.com.
In this spacious locale, a veritable playground for car enthusiasts, shoppers could find used vehicles to fit all budgets. Each vehicle was carefully picked, thoroughly inspected and had to meet the exacting norms set by the Office de la Protection du Consommateur, in addition to the 150-point criteria set by Automobile En Direct.com, before going up for sale. This ensured every buyer obtained the best possible vehicle at the best possible price.
The concept continued to take shape, all the members of the team contributing to its success by their enthusiasm, determination and sheer pleasure of working together. Automobile En Direct.com earned an enviable reputation thanks to this team, a team committed to sharing its passion for cars, day after day, in a warm and friendly environment.
Automobile En Direct.com took pleasure in breaking down preconceived notions and restoring lustre to the pre-owned vehicle market. To accomplish this and to remain a leader in the field, another expansion was called for. A second location was established, on chemin Chambly in St-Hubert, which allowed the company to satisfy an ever-growing number of car buyers. Besides offering the traditional services it had always provided, the dealership also opened a full service centre, to meet the mechanical repair and service needs of discriminating car owners and offer personalized follow-up adapted to their specific requirements.
Automobile En Direct.com revolutionized the pre-owned vehicle market in Montreal and throughout the province. From its humble beginnings, it has always kept its commitment to offer customers an unmatched purchasing experience. Under a single roof, you can make an informed choice from among over 1,200 high-quality vehicles for sale. You can count on a warm welcome, the accessories you want and the mechanical services you need. At Automobile En Direct.com, you can slip behind the wheel of your next vehicle with total peace of mind, while sticking to your budget.
In the end, the secret of success is really quite simple: respect your customers and stick to a faultless work ethic. Sébastien Bisaillon and his team have always held fast to this belief. Will you also be a part of this success story? Now that you know the story behind the success, you're a part of it, too.
