Vehicle History Report
Each Pohanka Certified Pre Owned vehicle comes with a detailed vehicle history report. This report showcases that particular vehicle’s accident history, mileage, title status, information about previous ownership, and more. The function of this report is to give the new owner conclusive information about the vehicle they are purchasing.

Rental Vehicle/Alternate Transportation and Trip Interruption Reimbursement
Should there be an issue with your Pohanka Certified pre-owned vehicle you will be supplied with a rental vehicle or alternative transportation. This mode of transportation will allow you to go about your daily life while your vehicle is getting worked on in one of our service departments. Also, should a trip be interrupted due to a fault in your vehicle you will qualify for Trip Interruption Reimbursement for the cost it takes to get your vehicle back home safely.

165 Point Inspection
Each Pohanka Certified vehicle has been through a rigorous 165 Point Inspection. During this inspection, all parts of the vehicle are thoroughly checked to make sure the vehicle is in top-performing condition. The inspection is always performed by a certified technician and any vehicle who fails even a single point of the inspection is not given the Pohanka Certified title.

Roadside Assistance
Complimentary Roadside Assistance is included with the purchase of every Pohanka Certified pre-owned vehicle. Roadside assistance provides necessary services for vehicles stranded on the side of the road including a jumpstart, supplying you with gas or fuel, changing a flat tire, towing, and more. This service allows you to get help and stay safe should a problem occur.

Pohanka Donates 30 Cases of Dog Food To Wicomico County Humane Society

Pohanka of Salisbury is always there when times get ruff. Recently the Wicomico County Humane Society was in desperate need of wet dog food for their injured puppies with weak and sensitive teeth. The shelter was almost completely out of wet dog food and feeding these poor animals dry food could further harm their health and prolong the healing process. In need of help, the Humane Society staff went to social media imploring local residents and business to donate a can or two of wet dog food to their shelter.

 

Pohanka took the initiative one step further. Only minutes after seeing the post, Pohanka’s Marketing Team was clearing local markets out of wet dog food. They packed the back of a pickup truck with over thirty cases of wet dog food cans and headed to the shelter.

 

The volunteers and staff were amazed when a truck full of donations pulled up to their door at just 10:30 in the morning. “It was absolutely incredible and so helpful. You have no idea how much this will help these animals grow and heal. We are all so grateful and know we can always count on Pohanka.” Said Siobhan Wyatt the Shelter Manager.

 

Pohanka’s donation along with numerous other wet food donations by various locals stocked the shelter’s pantry. The animals the shelter houses are once again properly fed and are on their way to finding new homes.

Shore Insurance Helps Record Breaking Number of People Save Money at Pohanka of Salisbury

Your in good hands with our Allstate Insurance team here at Pohanka of Salisbury! Last month alone our team of educated and skilled product specialist helped a record breaking number of people save money on their insurance policies! Our teams goal is to lower your rate while making sure you have the exact amount of coverage you need.

 

Shore Insurance at Pohanka of Salisbury was first created back in 2015 when Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury’s Owner/Operator Sandy Fitzgerald wanted her customers to have the ability to purchase car insurance on site when purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle. “It’s a really great opportunity to be able to purchase your insurance at the actual dealership” Says Bethaney Ralph Head of Shore Insurance. “Your not just spitting numbers and mild information into a computer but your having a real discussion with an actual insurance representative who knows the exact car your buying and its history.”

 

Shore Insurance not only provides customers with car insurance but also sells home insurance, renters insurance, life insurance, boat insurance, motorcycle insurance, jet ski insurance and more! “If it has a motor we can insure it” says Ralph.

 

Customers often rave that the prime benefit of purchasing form Shore Insurance is the ability to sit down with a personal  and local insurance agent to take a look at their current coverage. Very often consumers only look at their insurance policy when it is first purchased and forget to revisit the policy when a life changing event occurs.

 

“I constantly hear our agents telling customers they only have this little tiny bit of coverage that is the absolute minimum” Ralph explains “Often customers have a large amount of capital invested in these assets and need to up their coverage to protect it. This kind of personal advice can not come from a computer.”

 

Shore Insurance’s personal approach to the insurance industry has caused this strong team to shatter records and save locals more money than ever before. They will continue to help anyone who walks through the door and implores  everyone in the Delmarva area to look over their current policy and give them a call with any questions. When was the last time you checked your coverage? Don’t trust those 1-800 numbers to get you out of a bind. Call our team today at (443) 260-1610  

Pohanka Helps Cancer Patients on the Road to Recovery

 

The Pohanka Pays It Forward program is very active in community efforts. Since their beginning in 2009 this exclusive community outreach program , funded by Pohanka of Salisbury, has given over $1,000,000 to more then 750 non profit organizations.

 

Though they are very active with many volunteer groups one of their greatest partnerships is with the American Cancer Society. Not only is the  Pohanka Pays It Forward Relay For Life Team one of the top fundraising teams in the county but Pohanka is also largely involved in the American Cancer Society’s program “Road to Recovery.”

 

Road to Recovery is a service where cars and drivers are provided to cancer patients who don’t otherwise have transportation to get to and from their treatments. Patients notify Road to Recovery with their treatment schedule and local drivers make sure they will be available to get these patients to and from their treatments safley.

 

Pohankas involvement with Road to Recovery is rather extensive. The Pohanka Pays It Forward Road to Recovery group covers areas in Sussex as well as Worcester and Wicomico counties. Pohanka supplies two cars to the program and pays for drivers to actively be available when a patient needs them. Furthermore Pohanka pays for the gas, tools, parking fee and anything else required to get these patents to where they need to be at no cost to them.

 

These patients range from children to adults who often need rides to the Baltimore or D.C. areas where their doctors are located. Some of the patients only use the service once or twice but others require the rides every month, every week and some everyday.

 

“I love the program because i think it’s great to be able to give back in a way that the community really needs help.” Says Robert Cummings , A Road to Recovery volunteer and Pohanka of Salisbury Employee. “These people are unfortunately without a ride in a time when they most need it and we get to support that and give them the rides they need to get cured.”

Pohanka Caught Doing Good In The Community

Sheriff Final

Anyone who has heard of the Pohanka name knows not only of the sublime customer service they provide but also of their extensive community involvement. Through their “Pohanka Pays It Forward” campaign Pohanka of Salisbury has managed to donate over $1,000,000 to local charities and nonprofit organizations. Pohanka constantly looks for way to be active in the community and help those in need.

 

Though Pohanka largely participates in community events they sometimes take a quirkier approach when looking for ways to reach out to local community members. This holiday season Pohanka of Salisbury is partnering with Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan and Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis to bring some joy to unsuspecting drivers.

 

Recently drivers in Salisbury and Wicomico county were personally pulled over by either Lewis or Duncan for a minor violation. The drivers were given a warning… as well as a $100 bill, compliments of Pohanka Automotive. The idea behind this initiative came from  Pohanka’s combined want to spread joy to local community members during the holiday season and to show locals that our police force not just upholds the law but also serves to benefit the community.

 

“We believe it’s important to support and cooperate with local enforcement, and we do our part to help create good relationships between members of the public and our police officers” Says Conrad Morgan Marketing Director at Pohanka of Salisbury.

 

Pohanka is also collecting “Toys For Tots” donations in each of their six showrooms from now until the 23rd of December. Anyone who wishes to donate will receive a free car wash with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy.  Paying forward and empowering the community is the Pohanka way.
