History

2006
Boise Auto Clearance opened with 4 parking spaces, a cell phone, and 1 piece of junk pickup.
2008
We discovered Craigslist was a popular site to advertise our cars for free.
2009
The Great Recession is in full swing. Many people are looking for a cheap car that they can pay cash for. Boise Auto Clearance was in the right place at the right time. While large dealers were laying people off, Boise Auto Clearance was selling 100% of its inventory every month because of low overhead and low prices.
2010
We hired Elden Stokes, a computer whiz, who gave us a competitive advantage by writing software that helped us leap frog over other dealers at the auction who were still looking up car values in physical booklets! I was tracking values in real time using Elden’s software on brand new technology called an iPhone.
2012
We painted a yellow Ford Escape 5 different colors and put our name on it. It seemed like a smart idea at the time.
2014
Boise Auto Clearance moves to the former building of Jim’s Heating and Cooling on Fairview, doubling our parking capacity to 65 cars. It seemed we had finally become a legit car dealership, with 4 shop bays, a large sales office, and street frontage.
2019
Boise Auto Clearance becomes the #1 independent dealer for Capital Educator’s Credit Union, sending them over $2 million in loans that year.
2020
Boise Auto Clearance outgrows the Fairview location and acquires a former grocery store in Nampa. This former Paul’s Market offers a 20,000 sq ft show room, and capacity for 130 vehicles.
