Crazy Credit? We Can Help!

25 10 2012

Your past has been kind of financially shaky – things didn’t always go your way. Making any large purchase, such as a newer vehicle, is always on hold until you can find a way to fix the problem.

Given your situation, you might feel you have to go to a second-rate dealership and expect to drive off the lot with a second-rate vehicle, with a price-tag you can’t necessarily afford.

However, “you are pre-qualified for an auto loan.”

Hearing those words, you might be skeptical – “How is that possible? My past doesn’t look all that great…”

Here’s how the process works:

1. You receive a formal notification from the dealership letting you know that you’re pre-approved and to call a number or contact the Special Finance Manager to find out the size of loan you’re pre-qualified for.

2. After thinking it over, and discovering your loan amount by calling that number, you get in contact with our Special Finance Manager and schedule a consultation.

3. You attend your consultation, where we discuss your situation and explain the processes involved. We take the time to carefully answer any questions you may have, and also help you select the best vehicle with respect to your preferences and budget.

From there, your experience will be equal to what our standard sales process is – the only major difference is that our Special Finance Manager assists you step-by-step, meaning they will take care of your needs from scheduling a consultation to making sure you’re satisfied after a purchase.

We at Haley Buick GMC have thought about it – when we say “We help our community,” we mean it. That means finding ways to help those that have hit rough times, and get everyone into a vehicle they want to drive. So come on over, we’d love the chance to give you satisfaction and peace of mind in your next automotive purchasing decision… to make you happy!


CASA Superhero Run

17 04 2012

Superheros in Richmond? Richmonders as Superheros?

Maybe a little bit of both.

CASA of Henrico, Chesterfield, and Colonial Heights are teaming up and bringing you another reason this year to dress up as a superhero in public!

From their Website:

“Become part of the movement of individuals, corporations and organizations that are proud to lead the fight against child abuse. Enjoy entertainment, refreshments and fun for the whole family. St. Joseph’s Villa offers a flat and fast 5K course, which accommodates all levels of expertise. Children twelve and under can participate in the kids’ race. Form a team, come out with your family or run/walk alone. Costumes are optional, but they make it more fun!”

Entertainment, besides the obvious legions of Superheros, will include a moon bounce, obstacle course, carnival games, and face painting!

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a non-profit organization that trains individuals to guide/represent victims of child neglect and/or abuse through the legal system towards a better life.

This race will be at St. Joseph’s Villa, 8000 Brook Road (corner of Brook Road and Parham Road). Event organizers ask that you use the Brook Road entrance.

Join us out there, and be a superhero!

Richmond Homearama 2012

12 04 2012

So you might have heard… Richmond Homearama 2012 is coming soon, and this year it’s hosted in Chesterfield’s Summer Lake neighborhood.

Presented by the Richmond Home Builders Association, it features eight model homes designed, constructed, furnished, and decorated by crews of local building and design teams.

A “Sneak Peek” weekend wrapped up last month, and among the things shown were:

– Parental Command Center: built into the “Simply Flexible” floor design by Orleans Homes, this office looks onto the kitchen, dining area, and living room. It’s a surefire way to keep track of the crew while guiding the ship.

– 3-storey Open Staircase: featured in the house build by Biringer Builders, it’s a great piece of functional architecture you and your whole family can make use of.

– 2-storey Family Room: Set into a farmhouse design, this room really sets the tone of the house. Plus, think of all the “activity space” to enjoy!

– Drop-zone to a laundry room: Imagine being able to get everyone’s laundry cleaned without having to run all over the place for it. Now check out this special feature of the “Swift Creek Cottage” by Southern Traditions.

When the doors open to the public, there will be plenty more to see – including a new Buick or GMC in every driveway (courtesy of Haley Buick GMC)! Bring friends, family, or both – Richmond Homearama 2012 runs Wednesdays through Sundays from April 21st until May 6th, noon until 8pm.

Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center

27 03 2012

We at Haley Buick GMC know the value of helping the community. If it weren’t for the Richmond, VA area and all of the wonderfully diverse folks within, we could not exist.

One of the groups within our community that really deserves special attention is the Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center, located off of Old Buckingham Road in Powhatan Co.

Veteran Drill Team Support Group via

Truly a non-profit, they thrive solely from volunteer efforts and private donations with the mission of bringing wounded veterans from McGuire Woods VA Medical Center a chance to regain their strength and courage to live a normal life with honor and dignity.

Founded in January, 2008, they have already helped over 840 veterans do so.

From stable-hands to facility maintenance… even people to serve lunch, volunteers are needed year round to keep the program on this 7-acre facility running smoothly.

While many say they proudly support our troops at home and abroad, those involved with Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center get to experience first-hand the thrill of giving back to a soldier who had sacrificed for their country.

First Contact via

With your help, Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center can reach their 1,000th rider and more! Go here to get involved, call (804) 357-9524, or drop by at 6137 Old Buckingham Rd, Powhatan VA, 23139.
