    1. Q: Why should I buy my Corvette from Roger's Corvette Center?

    A: Look closely. Compare our Corvettes to the others and you will likely find ours to be in far superior condition, with fewer miles, and usually all factory original equipment. We also examine the mechanical condition of each of our Corvettes before they go on sale to ensure trouble free service to our customers. You can compare 40 or more of our cars in the comfort of our air conditioned showroom with more just outside. We are here to answer all your questions, but won't badger you, either. Even better, read some of the Reviews and Testimonials our past customers have shared about their experience dealing with Roger's Corvette Center. They are more than happy with their Corvette purchase. We think you will be too.

    2. Q: Can I trade in my current vehicle on a Roger's Corvette?

    A: Roger's accepts most Corvette and non-Corvette trade-ins. For an approximate valuation of your trade, email us the full Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), several photos of both exterior and interior, and a short description including current mileage as well as the Corvette in our inventory you wish to purchase. If not within driving distance to our Orlando location, please keep in mind auto transport expenses must be considered, as well. Call us for more information.

    3. Q: I'm interested in selling my Corvette? Does Roger's buy Corvettes outright or sell on consignment?

    A: Roger's is always interested in clean, low mileage, excellent condition late model Corvettes. If you believe your Corvette can match Roger's high quality standards, we would be happy to discuss purchasing or consignment options with you.

    4. Q: Can I finance my Corvette through Roger's?

    A: Roger's does not offer financing at this time. We recommend your local bank or credit union for your financing needs.

    6. Q: What about shipping costs to other countries?

    A: Again, shipping costs vary widely depending on the final destination but we have shipped Corvettes to Canada plus European destinations including England, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Spain, Norway, and others. In country shipping charges from the Port of Entry to final destination is extra if the vehicle is not picked up at the port. Transit time is usually three to four weeks. Any applicable duties or import taxes imposed by the destination country are additional. Every situation is different so contact us with your desired Port of Entry and we will strive to obtain an accurate shipping quote for you.

    7. Q: How do you handle licensing, sales taxes, and vehicle registration for both Florida and non-Florida residents?

    A: First of all, it is important to understand that Roger's applies no processing, paperwork, or any other dealer administrative fees of any kind. Some dealers charge $300-$500 for these fees which are really only additional dealer profit. At Roger's the price you are quoted is the price you pay, plus any applicable taxes or fees required by law as described below.

    Florida Residents are responsible for the following by law:

    Non-Florida residents are responsible for state sales taxes:

    IMPORTANT: Laws vary from state to state and may change without notice. Other possible registration/tag fees may apply according to each individual states' policies. Check with us or your local Department of Motor Vehicles for your state's specific policy on reciprocation.

    8. Q: I live in another country. How do you manage customs?

    A: Customs regulations vary with each country and therefore must remain the responsibility of the buyer. We will be happy to assist in whatever way possible, however.

    9. Q: I live in Canada. Do you have any special information about shipping, licensing, and registration for me?

    A: We have a great deal of experience in out-of-country sales, particularly to our many friends north of the border. Please allow us to refer you to the text of an excellent email message from one of our Canadian customers who purchased his Corvette from Roger's. He explains his experience with Roger's as well as the many ins and outs of importing a US car into Canada. Click here to view his message. For even more information, visit his Corvette Grand Sport web site which is extremely well designed and contains a wealth of information.

    Of course, if you have further questions, feel free to contact us for specifics.

    10. Q: How can I be assured of the condition of one of your Corvettes I am considering purchasing?

    A: All Roger's Corvettes undergo a rigorous inspection before they are ever offered for sale and again just before delivery. After all, we are opposed to surprises, too, and want you to be happy with your investment. While most of our used vehicles are sold on an as-is basis, we will be happy to help you arrange the purchase of either a factory or third-party warranty. While we will be the first to tell you there is no such thing as a "perfect" pre-owned Corvette, we pride ourselves in offering only the cleanest examples available. Compare the quality of vehicles in our inventory to those offered by other dealers and we think you'll be suitably impressed!

    11. Q: Can I arrange a third party inspection of my vehicle prior to purchase?

    Of course, we want you to be wholly satisfied with your purchase. You are welcome to arrange an independent vehicle inspection by a professional third party. Just ask them to contact us so we may find a date and time that meets your particular needs.

    12. Q: Where are you located and what are your hours?

    A: Roger's Corvette Center is located at 8675 N. Orlando Avenue, Maitland, Florida, 32751, just North of downtown Orlando (for GPS users, please enter our address as 8675 South US Hwy 17 92).

    13. Q: I am flying in to Orlando with the express purpose to buy a Corvette from Roger's. Is transportation to or from the airport available?

    A: We will be happy to provide courtesy transportation for Corvette buyers during regular business hours. Just let us know in advance when you plan to arrive and we will make every effort to meet you at the airport and drive you to our showroom. If you arrive after business hours, we will be happy to pick you up at your hotel on the next business day.

    14. Q: My budget is limited. Do you have any Corvette "fixer-uppers?"

    A: We specialize in quality, original, low mileage late model Corvettes. However, from time to time we do run across Corvettes that could use some work. If you let us know exactly what you are searching for we can let you know in advance when we run across a Corvette that could use a little extra attention.

    15. Q: How long have you been in business?

    A: Owner Roger Judski has been in the business of buying and selling quality Corvettes since 1965. In that time he has established a reputation for honesty, service before and after the sale, and above all, quality Corvettes!

    16. Q: The pictures on your website are great, but I'd like more detailed photos or a video of a particular Corvette. Can these be provided?

    A: Our website features at least 20 photos for most of the vehicles in our inventory. Additional digital photos are available for serious buyers upon request. Contact us for more information.

    17. Q: Are Corvettes a good investment?

    A: While some limited edition or early model Corvettes have skyrocketed in value over the years, no one can guarantee a monetary return on your Corvette purchase. If properly maintained and cared for, Corvettes do retain their value very well. But perhaps the best return on your investment is simply the pride and enjoyment of Corvette ownership... many enthusiasts consider these priceless commodities in their own right.

    18. Q: I like one of your Corvettes in stock, but I'd really like to have a set of aftermarket wheels installed. Is that possible?

    A: In partnership with Eckler's Corvette Parts and Accessories and other reputable suppliers, we can obtain most any aftermarket items available. We would be happy to equip your Corvette just as you want it prior to delivery.

    19. Q: I need some mechanical repairs and/or body work done for my Corvette. Can you recommend a good repair/body shop that I could trust my Corvette to?

    A: Roger's realizes the care and maintenance of your Corvette is important and that only the best will do. For your convenience, Corvette Masters and Burke Corvettes are located in facilities right next door to our showroom. Corvette Masters (407-831-3990) offers quality mechanical repairs and high-performance modifications for all Corvette years and models. Burke Corvettes (407-539-1717) provides expert paint, body, and restoration services for your Corvette. They are both Corvette experts with years of experience and hundreds of satisfied customers behind them. Roger trusts them with his personal cars. You should too!

    20. What recourse of action do I have if I am unhappy following the purchase of a Corvette from Roger's?

    A: The entire staff at Roger's Corvette Center is dedicated to filling your Corvette needs to your full satisfaction. If you ever have any problems about any aspect of our service to you before or after the sale, please do us the courtesy of allowing us the opportunity to make it right. Contact us right away and nine times out of ten, we can correct the situation to your satisfaction. We appreciate your business and value your friendship! After all, we are Corvette enthusiasts, too!

    21. Why don't you show the exact mileage on each car in your inventory?

    A: A car listed with "4,000 Miles" could have anywhere from 4,000 to 4,999 miles. We list mileage in thousands only as a matter of convenience. If we listed the exact mileage, our web site would have to be updated constantly every time a car was taken for a test drive. To find out the current exact mileage, just give us a call or email us, and we'll be happy to check the odometer right then and there for you.

    22. How much flexibility is there in your prices?

    A: At Roger's Corvette Center, all vehicle prices are firm as advertised. Owner Roger Judski is very particular about the quality of Corvettes he accepts into his inventory and thus the selling price is based on condition, mileage, and emphasis on originality. Since 1973, he has never believed in playing games with prices, such as over inflating prices to allow for negotiating them down later on. Rather he prefers to price all vehicles fairly in the first place, thus avoiding any haggling and making your Corvette buying experience simple and pleasant.

    23. What vehicle preparation is done before I take delivery of my Corvette?

    A: Roger's Corvette Center wants to make sure you are pleased with your Corvette puchase. With that in mind, all vehicles are thoroughly examined and road tested prior to delivery to make sure everything is functional and it performs as expected. Of course, all Corvettes are washed and cleaned, given a fresh synthetic oil and filter change, plus a full tank of fuel. We just want to make sure that when you take delivery of your Corvette, you have nothing to concern yourself with but enjoying the car!
