John has been in the retail automotive business for 20 years. He had always hated stereotypical car dealers that used high-pressure sales tactics, played games, and ripped off customers. He refused to buy from dealerships and always bought his vehicles from individual owners. In 2001, while still on active duty in the Air Force, he started Pigg Enterprises as an experiment to see if a “no pressure” dealership that was operated with honesty and integrity would be successful. It was!
John retired from the Air Force as a Chief Master Sergeant in 2004 and began pouring himself full-time into the operation at Pigg Enterprises. With the help of his sons, he grew the operation from a 2-vehicle experiment into a dealership that carries over 120 vehicles. Pigg Enterprises has become one of the most successful pre-owned dealerships in the state of Alabama by operating the same way for 20 years—by delivering a vehicle-shopping experience free of stress and hassle, with fair and honest pricing, and a pleasant buying experience that leaves customers squealing!
John continually strives to make the “Pigg Enterprises Experience” as stress-free and simple as possible for customers. Hearing the negative experiences people were having with trying to sell their own vehicles, or with getting unfair trade offers elsewhere, John knew there was a way to solve this and Pigg Buys is it! John specializes in helping folks in the North Alabama & Tennessee areas. But, don’t worry! If you’re not in that area, he will gladly help you wherever you are!
