Welcome to DPS Enterprises!
DPS Enterprises, of Benton IL, is owned and operated by Dave
& Patti Sanders. In business for nearly 30 years, we are a true "mom &
pop" operation, and one of the few remaining auto wholesalers in the
region. We specialize in affordable vehicles,
while trying to offer those with less than 100,000 miles. Our goal is to offer
the most "bang" for your car
We don't have employees, we don't finance (no
payments), don't accept credit/debit cards or personal checks, and we don't take
trades. Cash on delivery is still the most affordable way to buy a car, and
that's the way we conduct business.
DPS Enterprises sells only 70-80 vehicles per year (one or two per week), so we can
be pretty picky about the vehicles we select. In recent years, the
proliferation of the self-financed, "buy-here-pay-here" dealers has driven the cost
of many vehicles out of the reach of most cash buyers. The only remaining
source of quality, low-mileage vehicles at realistic prices are insurance-claim
vehicles. These have become our primary source for good, used vehicles.
For this reason, nearly all our vehicles have been issued a "rebuilt"-status
title. This is more of a clerical status than a mechanical one. Many of
our vehicles need no repairs at all. These vehicles are unique in that they're
the only used vehicles requiring at least one independant safety inspection, mandated
by the state of Illinois, and each is issued an IDOT vehicle safety inspection
certification. While these steps are in place to benefit you (the buyer), very few
dealers will subject themselves to the rigors of this process. We feel that,
although the inspection and certification process adds a layer of complexity to our
side of the business, it is a very real benefit to our customers.
As you review our selection of vehicles, if you should have additional questions
regarding this process, we'll do our very best to answer them.
