About Us

A Different Kind of Dealership

We pride ourselves on being a different kind of dealership. We’ll help you quickly get into a dependable, used vehicle and on your way. We’re a great option for those who may not qualify for traditional used car financing because of bad credit, no credit, repossession or past bankruptcy.


We understand that you deserve the best deal, and that’s why we offer lower interest rates and shorter terms than others in our industry.* We provide flexible payment plans depending on your budget and we report customers’ on-time payments to the credit bureaus – all these things add up to offering you peace of mind and a customer experience you won’t find at other dealerships.

Our History

The year was 1981 and Bill Fleeman, a home builder, recognized the need to help people get into affordable, quality, used vehicles. He bought a few cars and opened the first Car-Mart in Rogers, Arkansas. When the cars sold quickly, Bill knew he was on to something.


As the business grew and Bill opened more Car-Mart dealerships, he wanted customers to know they could get a good value for their money at Car-Mart.


Today – with more than 2,000 associates and over 140 dealerships in 12 states – the company’s founding ideal has not wavered – to deliver an experience that provides customers with quality, used vehicles that meets their needs and budgets. We’re committed to making sure you leave with the quality, used vehicle you need and want from Car-Mart.

Buy Here Pay Here

We’re a Buy Here Pay Here company. This means you can purchase, finance and make payments all in one spot – with no need for separate approvals. We are here to help you at any time throughout the life of your financing term. At Car-Mart, our associates deliver a customer experience centered around you – the customer and we will work with you one-on-one.

We love the smiles of our customers when they drive away in their new vehicles. And, once you buy a vehicle from Car-Mart, you’re part of our family.
