There and Back Again: a Tom Gill Chevy Customer’s Chevrolet Malibu Journey
“On March 1, 2016, I woke up early in the morning here in Denver, Colorado to make a phone call to [Tom Gill Chevrolet] to ask about a 2015 Chevy Malibu LTZ2 Turbo. I spoke with Linda [Shelton] and asked her if the car was still available. She looked it up on the computer and she said yes it was. I then asked her if she could please verify visually that the car was there, because I thought of traveling from Denver to Florence to purchase the vehicle.
At first she thought maybe I was coming in a few days or the following week, but when I informed her that I am planning I am on catching a flight that will get me into the Cincinnati airport at 2:30 p.m. that day, she immediately said she would go check to see if the car was available. Linda called me back about ten minutes later saying that she has the keys to the car in her hands and that she would literally sit on them until I got there.”
If you’re familiar with the 2015 Chevy Malibu 2LZ Turbo, then it might not surprise you to find out someone was willing to go out of his way to buy one. From its sleek design to its imposing presence, loaded features, and commanding output, this model has it all. Still, if you heard that someone took a flight from Colorado to purchase one at a dealership in Florence, Kentucky, you might be a bit surprised. Well, that’s exactly what Francisco Undiks did when he purchased a Malibu from Tom Gill Chevy.
From Colorado to Florence, Kentucky
“When I finally was able to get my confirmed seat on the aircraft for my trip to Cincinnati, I was now in communication with a sales person named Kristi Beaver and she offered to pick me up at the airport. Sure enough, she was there waiting when I arrived. We arrived at the dealer, and the Malibu was there waiting…. I did not test drive the car because I knew I wanted it!!”
Francisco is a bargain shopper who has been working as a baggage handler for a major airline for the past 30 years. For a while, he spent time searching tirelessly to find the best deal out there for the vehicle of his choice: a 2015 Chevrolet Malibu 2LZ Turbo with stunning Black Granite exterior. He was excited when he found out about a great deal on this model from Tom Gill Chevy’s website.
On March 1, 2016, Francisco called the dealership and spoke with Linda, one of our service representatives, who held the keys for him while he hopped on a plane that afternoon and made his way to Florence. Our Digital Product Specialist Kristi Beaver proceeded to pick him up at the airport, and within just a few hours Francisco was on his way out of town in a shiny new turbocharged Malibu.
“Kristi introduced me to Chan [Dambaugh] the Finance Manager, he informed me that all my info was already faxed to my credit union guy…My credit union sent me a couple electronic forms to sign, which I did while eating a hot dog and drinking a Coke at the mini cafeteria in the dealer which I thought was so way beyond cool. Next step was signing a few title documents with Chan and I was finished. So amazing because that was the fastest I’ve ever been in and out of a dealership.”
Back to Colorado in a Brand-New Malibu
“Your salesperson Kristi was simply amazing and friendly, she was very attentive and answered all my questions… She knew I had a long drive home back to Denver so she kept telling me to drive safe and be careful, so I sent her pics and updates of my adventure back home. You have an awesome employee in Kristi that is for sure.”
On his drive back to Denver, Francisco took a bunch of pictures of himself and his surrounding with his 2015 Chevrolet Malibu 2LZ Turbo. During the journey, he saw some classic American sites: open ranges, big wind turbines, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, stadiums for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals, and, course, made a stop at a Big Boy for a burger.
