Like most people, you've probably spent many stressful hours shopping for your automobile and negotiating with high-pressure salespeople. Our clients learn very quickly this is simply not necessary. We will listen to your needs and, if necessary, will recommend which vehicle is best for you.
Then we will go into action. Our process is an interactive one. You can be as involved as you would like with the entire process.

Your Personal Automotive Shopper
Let us find your car for less money and without the hassle! Wholesale Automotive Solutions is a unique automobile business. What makes us so unique?
- We only work for you! We are your advocate and are "on your side".
- We locate, evaluate and acquire your vehicle.
- You drive away with what you want, stress and hassle-free.
- You will pay less than if you do it yourself.
How it works
First, we will set up a convenient time to discuss your transportation needs, whether it is by phone or in person.
If you are undecided as to what particular vehicle would best suit your needs, we will give you our expert and practical advice at no charge. Once you have determined which makes, models and color options will be on your search list, we will get started by doing our homework.
Next, we will begin our research using resources such as dealer guidebooks, actual comparable auction history and dealer sales data to determine a wholesale price range. We then will advise you what a realistic cost to you might be.
Finally, we will explore the availability of the vehicles you have put on your list. Sometimes acquiring a vehicle requires looking beyond the local markets. We have nationwide resources available, as well.
Once you are completely satisfied with the search parameters, we will ask you to sign a search agreement. This agreement details what we are searching for as well as the target price range. We will also be inquiring about how you plan to pay for your car. We do require a nominal deposit; however, if you are not 100% satisfied with our service, we will refund your deposit. We will NEVER buy a vehicle for you without your prior, expressed approval.

I have worked with Andy on the acquisition of 3 cars; a Toyota Landcruiser, Honda CRV, and a BMW 540i. In every situation, he provided multiple options before we agreed on the vehicles I now own. I have referred at least 5 individuals to Wholesale Automotive as a direct result of the service and support I’ve received on each transaction.
I bought my 2005 Audi from Andy. As we were going through the process he asked me a lot of questions in order to find out exactly what I wanted. He then found me an excellent vehicle for a fantastic price! I remember him turning down a couple of vehicles before he even asked me if I wanted them because they had issues. Andy has always been honest and great to work with. He even takes great care of you after you've made the purchase! My car has been running for years because of Andy and the mechanics that he works with. I am coming up on the time that I need to purchase another car and you can better believe it I'll be working with Andy to get my next vehicle!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Wholesale Automotive Solutions (W. A. S.) and the consistently outstanding service I have received from this company. Over the past several years, I have purchased 3 vehicles from them ranging in value from $41,000 to $53,000. In every case, the vehicles were nearly perfect and exactly what I was looking for (e.g. color, options, mileage, etc.). I also saved a significant amount of money with each transaction! The owner, Andy Christensen, even went above-and-beyond the call of duty by re-selling our 1999 minivan for us, which had over 130,000 miles and numerous scratches and dents. I have referred over 10 friends and/or business colleagues to them over the past 3 years; each of whom have bought a vehicle from W. A. S. and were very pleased with the entire process and experience. In fact, in every case they somehow end-up thanking me for the referral! Clearly, W. A. S. knows what they're doing and they take a lot of pride in it. Their service, integrity, attention-to-detail, listening skills and responsiveness are outstanding. In short, they are a pleasure to do business with and will take great care of you and anyone else you refer to them!
I have bought two cars from Andy Christensen. Andy is a breeze to work with; taking the time to find the exact vehicles that I needed at the price I was looking for. I would recommend him to anyone.
I've purchased two cars from Andy. In each instance he took the time to understand what was most important to me in a vehicle. He also made some suggestions of how to save money or get the most value for my dollar. Once I settled on the car I wanted and the price I was willing to pay, Andy found, inspected, and delivered a vehicle in pristine condition. I've been very pleased. My next car purchase will be through WAS Limited.
I have purchased over 10 vehicles from Andy Christensen and Wholesale Automotive. Each purchase was as enjoyable as the last. From pickup trucks to vans to sports cars, I can not imagine purchasing another car from a dealership ever again. Andy controls the entire process and utilizes his years of expertise in the car business to guide you through the process. He makes it a very enjoyable experience. Andy will take his time to educate you on what he does and how he does it. He is very trust worthy and has a great eye for detail. All of the vehicles we have purchased have been great cars. We also utilize Andy and Columbus Auto Source to do general repairs and even an engine re-build. Luke (service manager) and his team do a great job. They will keep you informed every step of the way so there are no last minute surprises. Great team and great services!
Andy & Wholesale Automotive Solutions have been a great help to my wife Tammy and I in all things automotive over the past five years. Andy has helped us through the selection and purchase of 3 cars over that time and has even helped us to sell a car. They even have the inside track on getting maintenance and repairs done at discounted prices. They can handle all things automotive with a professional, low key, low pressure approach that makes decisions easier and the whole process very enjoyable. So if you are a "car" guy like me and trade cars every few years ... or even if you stick to one car forever ... you need Wholesale Automotive Solutions!
I have purchased a number of vehicles from Wholesale Automotive. My experience on every occasion was very satisfying and effortless. Andy's professionalism, product knowledge and attention to detail is impeccable. I I will never buy a car from any other dealer again! Andy met and exceeded my expectations!
I own two cars purchased from Wholesale Automotive Solutions, and one company owns two others. My Saab is pictured here. I have several friends who have also bought cars from WAS, and each of them did so after my referral.............this is a lot of risk to take when dealing with car purchases. However, in no case of my own or of my company or friends has the experience with WAS been anything other than fantastic. Each car met the special request of the customer, each has been trouble-free, each has been in top condition, and in each case significant savings were enjoyed. In my own purchases I estimate between 15% and 20% savings on the same car bought through a reputable used car dealer. If one thinks about the process of buying through WAS, one sees that a key component is trust in Andy Christiansen, and he has earned and re-earned my trust repeatedly.
I will never visit an auto dealer again! Andy Christensen/Wholesale Automotive Solutions has been extraordinary in finding us our last 3 cars. His strength is his extensive knowledge of the market. He helps us understand real values and introduces us to alternative vehicles giving us more choices. The flat - fee idea is genius; going in I know that I am paying a very reasonable fee to an expert for his assistance. Thanks Andy!
I don't shop for cars anywhere else. My wife and I have been return customers of Columbus Auto Source for more than 10 years. Andy Christensen, Ely Conrad and the staff are truly committed to delivering the best customer experience available. I regularly refer friends, family and other acquaintances to the dealership because I'm confident in how they will be treated. Many have also become loyal and repeat customers. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
My family has purchased two vehicles from Andy Christensen & Wholesale Automotive Solutions and working with them was a pleasure both times. We appreciate their honesty and integrity. More than once, Andy went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable and satisfied. They looked for our first vehicle at a dealer-only auto auction. The one they found was what we wanted & in our price range. The search process was smooth and low-stress. Upon delivery, they even provided us with a Car Fax report and a mechanical inspection report on the vehicle. We have had the vehicle since November 2005 and have not encountered any major issues. We love driving it ! The second vehicle was one they had in stock. Again, the sale process was smooth and the vehicle checked out to be in excellent condition. We plan on making our future family vehicle purchases through Wholesale Automotive Solutions.
I have been extremely satisfied with the service Andy Christiansen provides through Wholesale Automotive Solutions. In 2002 I knew I wanted a Toyota Camry. All I had to do was tell Andy what color, what options, what year, what mileage...and what I could afford. He did all the work - and he found "my car." When I went to pick up my Camry I thought I'd be in his office for a couple of hours filling out paperwork like you normally do at a car dealership. To my surprise, everything was ready for me to sign and it couldn't have been easier. I was handed the keys and was ready to go. I had no problem with the vehicle in the four years I leased it. When my lease was up this past July (2006) I heard all the advertisements on TV and the radio...but I already knew I was going back to Andy to find me another Camry. I told him I wanted to upgrade a little - I wanted a sunroof this time - and within a matter of a few weeks he found my 2005 Camry that I absolutely love to drive! I consider Andy "my car dealer" and also my friend! I'll be back when my lease is up in 2010...I'm going for a red sports car convertible next time...
My wife and I have purchased several vehicles through Andy Christensen and Wholesale Automotive Solutions over the last six years, including a Toyota Landcruiser, Honda Odyssey and BMW X5. What Andy has continually provided us, that commercial auto dealers have not, is a complete sense of trust in the buying process, and a high degree of personalized service. Because of Andy, I know we will never buy from a commercial auto dealer again.
