Joseph is simply the best to work with. I requested an online estimate and got a call back within hours and scheduled an appointment the next day.
Took my car to review, we finalized a deal in less than 30 mins and I walked out with a happy face and relief that i did sell my car to the right person.
All the documents after the purchase reached me in no time. I was more than pleased by the entire transaction.
Joseph was extremely helpful and knowledgeable I would definitely deal with him again.
I was looking to get rid of our 2007 VW Eos. We live in Jersey City and walk or take public transportation everywhere. We were using the car less and less, so between parking, insurance, etc. it was hardly worth keeping. I took it to a couple of dealers who completely low-balled me. I don’t expect top dollar from a dealer, but 5 to 6 thousand dollars below retail? That seemed a little much. I didn’t want to post the car on ebay or Craigslist because who wants to deal with that aggravation? I thought I was out of options, then I found Joseph at Carnation through an Internet search. It was a bit of a schlep to get the car out to L.I. but I am very glad I did. Joseph did a thorough exam of the car and suggested that filing an insurance claim for the few scrapes on the car and then repairing them would help the value a lot. I left the car with Joseph that day. I’m not the kind of guy to turn over my car keys to someone I’ve know for 20 minutes, but something told me I could trust Joseph to take care of the situation. Again, very glad I did. I was honest with Joseph about why I wanted to get rid of the car. A lot of other people would take this as a sign that I was desperate to get rid of the car and offer me some lame amount for it (like the dealers did), but that is not what he did.
According to Joseph, there were a few options: He could sell the car at an auction, sell it dealer-to-dealer, or look for a retail buyer. He very clearly explained the pros and cons of each. I told Joseph that I would leave it up to him to pick the best way to go. Joseph spent a lot of time I don’t normally leave decisions like this up to other people but I had a sense I was in good hands. Within a few days, Joseph had come up with an idea how each of the three scenarios would play out in terms of money. I decided which way I wanted to go (dealer to dealer which would be quicker than a retail sail) and that was about all I had to do. Joseph handled paying off the bank, all the paperwork on his end (with a few signatures from me) and every other aspect of the transaction. In short, Joseph took one of my least favorite activities: buying/selling/leasing a car and made it pretty effortless. Thanks again Joseph!
Well I went last friday to carnation and met with Joseph a wonderful man, I got the best customer service, the best price for my car! And also Joseph was kind enough and gave me advise for the future regarding cars. He also took allot of his time to explain everything to me. He was not in a hurry just to make the deal and send you on your way like other places will do, which was very important to me. I really like the place and Joseph ! I recommend everybody to go there to make their life easy and simple. Thank you again Joseph for everything looking forward to work with you again in the future. Sincerely , Maya Skalmer
Joseph is the first person we officially met with to sell our car. after we talked to him, we felt there is no need for meeting with a second person. He is very very friendly and honest, He makes me feel that the purpose he is running this business is to help people solve their problem instead of making money. I definitely recommend people who want to sell the cars to find him and talk to him, he is the one that gives you full satisfaction.
I first met Joe about 2 weeks ago when he texted me about a motorcycle that I had placed on eBay and Craiglist for sale. We finally met when he came to my home to pick up the bike to take to his business. When my husband and I met Joe, we knew he was the one we wanted to do business with. From the time he took my bike to his store to the time it took to complete the business transaction, Joe was very PROFESSIONAL, honest, clear about the process and how long it would take. Joe is not a bullshitter. I would recommend anyone to do business with Joe. He is not there just to make a dollar. He really cares about the business and wants to satisfy his customers. Thank you Joe for making this process easy for me. I hope we will do business again. I give Joe and his crew four STARS.

I wanted to surprise my wife with a car when she got back from a 3 day fifth grade camping trip. I only had about 6 days to pull this off with selling her old car. Joe Wirtz was able to help me pull off this difficult achievement. He not only found the perfect car that she loved when she walked into the driveway upon her return, but was instrumental in selling her old car. I would not hesitate buying or selling a car with him and plan on him finding my next car.
I recently purchased a car from Joseph @ CarNation, while living in North Dakota! I was only able to see pictures and speak with Joseph on the phone about the car. Joseph made me feel comfortable to purchase the vehicle without ever seeing it in person! He was always there to answer any questions and concerns. I feel like he was looking out for MY best interest when helping me choose my car. I never felt intimidated by him, like with other car salesman and didn't feel pressured. It was really a great buying experience. When I did get the vehicle it was exactly as described. Joseph went above and beyond to make sure the vehicle was in perfect shape for myself and children. Finally a car salesman you can trust! I would do business again with Carnation in a heartbeat! Thank you again Joseph for all of your help! I love my car!!!! Brandi
Joseph treated us like family. These days especially with selling cars it is hard to find that. He is looking for the relationship not the sale. We recently went back to him a second time to do business and yet again we received the same amazing service.
You can count on CarNation and Joseph to give you the best deal, but above all the royal treatment.
He took care of selling our car and all of the fuss of the paperwork. We were updated with every step along the way, making us feel informed and confident about making the right decision to go with CarNation.
If you're having any hesitation about dealing with a car dealer such as Car Nation, stop. If you think you're going to be dealing with some third rate car dealer miscreant, stop. This business, especially the owner, Joe, could not have made my life easier by taking my 2011 Mustang off my hands. He was courteous, respectful, above and beyond honest with me, forthright and most of all what I consider 'fair'. We both walked away from the deal content and more importantly he followed up with my lien holder like he said he would and took care of everything. He's been doing this for more than 25 years, and let me tell you he knows what he's doing. Not to overdo it, but it's business owners like Joe that make you walk away from a closed deal and think to yourself 'maybe America isn't going to hell in a handbasket'. Truly don't know what else to say than thanks Joe!
