An Xtreme dealership: Car business celebrates grand opening


Xtreme Transportation also handles all the bank financing to assure their customers have a good experience when buying a car.

"People come in here scared and nervous to buy a car, and rightly so. Buying a car is the second biggest purchase a person has in life," Thornburg said. "What I try to do is make it as easy and transparent as possible. I like to know what they need and try to work with them to get that."

To ensure that they are satisfying their customers needs, Thornburg and Delashmutt try to keep around 35 to 50 cars on the lot at all times, offering a wide variety of pre-owned cars, trucks, sport utility vehicles and vans for each individual person.

It is Delshmutt's responsibility to make sure they are offering the highest quality vehicles they can find, and Thornburg's responsibility to make them affordable to the customers.

Because it is only the two of them, Thornburg and Delashmutt work side-by-side ensuring that all the work they put into Xtreme Transportation is for the customers they serve.

"That's kind of our niche," Thornburg said. "When you come to Xtreme Transportation you are going to work with myself or Pat. We will be there every step of the way."

The only thing Thornburg can ask for now, is to continue gaining a strong reputation in the city and hope for sustainability in the future.

"The main thing we are working toward is to have permission in the marketplace to do business," Thornburg said. "People have been happy with the process and the transactions so all we can hope for is to continue along that path."
