Used car dealers to launch new Post Falls operations

Owners expect to open business in early January

  • Print Article

Big Sky Auto Wholesale LLC has leased 2,300 square feet of office and warehouse space at 867 N. Boulder Court, in Post Falls, where it plans to open its first dealership, says co-owner Hunter Scoffield.

The company moved into the space in November and hopes to open the business the first of next year, says Scoffield.

He and co-owner Michael Montee currently are the only employees, he says.

Big Sky Auto Wholesale will sell used cars at wholesale price, Scoffield claims.

Scoffield, who’s worked in the industry for over three years, says one reason he decided join Montee in opening Big Sky Auto Wholesale is that it’s been a good year for the economy. He also asserts they can operate a dealership with a lower pricing structure.

“I’ve seen dealers mark stuff up $6,000 to $10,000, and I don’t see why they need to do that,” he claims.

Big Sky Auto Wholesale LLC will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Craig Hunter and Rob Kannapien, both of Coldwell Banker Commercial Schneidmiller Realty, handled the lease.
