Wayne and Craig Madsen are the owner/operators of Madsen Motor Company in Cary and both are long-time NC residents. They moved to Cary with their families in the Spring of 1991 and have lived there ever since. Both grew up in Toms River, New Jersey, a stone’s throw from the beach and right in the middle of what they call “the Shore” in that part of the country. The Madsen brothers have been “car guys” for many years but their love of European cars blossomed during their years working in Germany back in the ‘80s. Upon their return to the USA, they decided to head South and open a boutique-style of used car dealer – the complete opposite of the high-pressure car dealer that is still the norm today. They set out to create a comfortable, customer-service driven environment where the used luxury car buyer would feel comfortable doing business. “We all know how annoying it is to car shop at the big dealers – we’ve always tried to be “the cure for the common car dealer,” a place where our customers can relax and not worry about being handed off to the “finance guy” or ”the manager.” We treat our customers the way we like to be treated,” says Craig Madsen. The brothers believed that a showroom was important and they started small in the back corner of the Chatham Square Shopping Center in September of 1991. The Madsens started out as a shop specializing in “exceptional pre-owned Mercedes” and they “certified” their cars from the beginning – long before that term became commonplace in the used car business. Today, in addition to Mercedes-Benz models, you will find a variety of other luxury brands on the lot and also a few less expensive Asian cars, ideal for parents of young drivers who want a safe, reasonably-priced car. Whatever the model, the basics of a Madsen car are always the same – safe, reliable, hand-picked cars that are in exceptional condition, that have thoroughly serviced and meticulously cleaned, and offered to you at the right price. The Madsens also provide a Custom Car Search service – if you are looking for a specific pre-owned car, they’ll be glad to find you just what you are looking for. Additionally, if you have a car to sell the Madsen brothers offer a Consignment Service – they will sell your car for a fee and you avoid the hassles of answering phone calls and emails and wasting your day waiting for people who don’t show up. Naturally, Madsen Motor Company also offers all the necessary services to keep your car running properly and looking its best for years to come. They also maintain a service loaner fleet to make your life easier when its time for your car to be serviced.
