Colossus Trading LLC is managed by Ly Papanikandros. Mr. Papanikandros was born in Greece and resided throughout Europe prior to receiving his master's degree in international relations in the U.S. Mr. Papanikandros started dealing with cars in 1987, and throughout the first years dealt mainly with the importing and exporting of automobiles to Europe. Although he also sold European cars domestically from the beginning, it was not until the early 1990's that it became his primary focus.
The inventory at Colossus Trading LLC consists of approximately 15-25 cars, all of which are selected by Ly Papanikandros himself. By consistently buying the same make of cars, one becomes familiar with their characteristics and the problems with particular models. The vehicles are inspected, serviced, and detailed prior to being sold. Even in vehicles with higher mileage, service records are sought, allowing the dealership and the potential customer to get an idea of the vehicle's history. Although the cars are sold as-is, customers are always encouraged to have the vehicles inspected by independent mechanics. At Colossus Trading LLC there are no high-pressure tactics. Mr. Papanikandros feels that the potential buyer will have to live with their car of choice for some time: therefore, he encourages buyers to take time to think about their purchase. Even after the sale, customers are welcome to purchase parts at the dealership's cost and are offered assistance with service or repairs.
Although Colossus Trading LLC is a smaller dealership, it takes pride in its ways of being direct honest and competitively priced in the used car market.
