H&S Motors, the Chevy-Buick car dealership located in Cresco, Iowa, is moving into spring with a new look. After starting major remodeling construction at the beginning of July 2012, dealership owner Bryan Sheehy explained that the business has had an almost complete makeover, including new ceilings, new floors, new walls, and almost everything in between. Impressive as the newly designed interior looks, the outside front façade of the building is also newly refurbished.

This is H&S Motors’ 30th year in business after opening in 1983 as a Buick-Chevrolet franchise taking over Kratz Motors. The last time any remodeling occurred on the building was at least fifteen years ago. In addition to remodeling the parts department and service centers, much of the completed construction project was in the form of a building expansion, which added more office and display space.

Soon many people will be out looking to do routine maintenance or even purchase a new vehicle after a long winter. Sheehy stated that all twelve months of the year are busy though and that no specific season of the year reflects an influx of sales. H&S Motors dedicates itself to sales of both new and used vehicles having more than forty-five new vehicles on site and more than sixty-five used vehicles on display. Customers even have the opportunity to search through H&S’s selection via

H&S Motors has routine vehicle maintenance covered as well. Supporting a parts department and service center is a vital part of day-to-day operations. H&S Motors even has its own line of tire sales and alignment service. Sheehy said, “Because every vehicle’s needs are different, it is important for customers to feel comfortable to call or even stop in so we can coach them on how to responsibly care for their vehicles.”

H&S Motors operates on a staff of roughly sixteen full-time employees and several additional part-time helpers. Sheehy and his partner Richard Holten, combined together, have more than sixty years of experience in the car business. Sheehy stressed, “We care about our customers. We don’t have fancy slogans because we try to be as personable as possible.”

The employees at H&S Motors try very hard to accommodate their customers’ every need. Open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and on Saturdays from 7:30 am to noon, the company also offers evening appointments. “We try to run a business that isn’t high pressure so the customers are comfortable.” After 30 years of serving the Howard County region and southeastern Minnesota, H&S Motors, with its newly remodeled building, will continue to offer the great service that it always has.
