    STAY AWAY! Do not go to Approval thinking you are going to buy the used motorcycle you saw online or for finance. Just like so many reviewers the bike we saw online was not there. My son had been talking to "Donny" about a used 2003 motorcycle, I was with my son when he made the calls. My son knew he could only afford a 2003-2009. He called Donny the day before we were going to drive 2 hours to their showroom, Donny assured us he and the bike would be there and they had many others to chose from. We arrived the next day neither the bike or Donny was there. The new salesman immediately tried to sell my son a 2010 and newer cycles. Typical bait-and-switch. Don't waste your time with these dishonest people. Donny also claimed my son was per-approved for financing after my son gave him the necessary information over the phone. We arrive and the new sales person stated there is no per-approval over the phone. We go through the process at the store and my son gets denied. If we would have known that we would not have driven 2 hours to talk to a bunch of shady bait-and-switch dishonest people. I have purchased over 40 automobiles and numerous cycles in my 60 years and never have I run across a place like Approval. STAY AWAY!

    Bait & Switch then Cheated

    I was looking at 4 bikes online. I did the phone calls and txts with employment info. The sales man said "You're good to go.. all you need to do is come in and get the bike you want" So I called my cousin who was co-signing for me to dive 3 hours to meet me there. I call approval and asked if the bikes I was looking at was still available. The girl on the phone said "YES" when I got there 1 hour later all the bikes were gone. They blamed it on the girl not having an "Up to date list". So they talked me into a more exspensive bike that was NEW but 3 yrs old. It normally sells for 9,995 but said they would give it to me for 5,900. They said I would be on a credit builder program where my cousin would co-sign and if I paid my 1st 12 payments on time. Then capital one would re-finance me on my own and get my cousin off the loan. We signed the deal. I setup by phone to take payments out of my checking and never looked at the balance. 1 yr later I find out they charged me 6900 for the bike not 5900 and after fee's it was over 10k. When I tried to re-finance in my name and get my cousin off we couldn't. There is no such thing as a credit builder program. Sum it up. They bait and switched the bike I wanted to a new one. Over charged me for it by double and lied to me about being able to get my cousin off the loan 1 year later. DO NOT DO BUISNESS with this Dealership!

    Warning never go here

    So I'll start things off by saying this there online website is a complete scam. Every complete motorcycle listed at $4400.00 and below does not exist they aren't there. I just recently went in to purchase a motorcycle they have had listed for months and coincidently it was sold yesterday or so I was told. I began by applying for a loan and was told I needed a co signer. I got a co signer and I was called to come in and pick up a bike. So the very next day I traveled 2hrs to get there. When I arrive I had to fill out another credit app. Then he proceeded to get a approval from the bank that I was already told had approved me. In the meantime I looked around at what bikes they had and they just about all looked pretty beat up. So I ended up leaving because something just didn't sit right with me about this place. Terrible place never do business here. Worst experience of my life.

    Thank you Ron!! and... shut the #@ck up.. lmao... You were the best. Went over to get a 1998 Yamaha 1100 virago. Drive home a 0 miles 2015 Yamaha V-Star 950. They close at 6. Driving 250 miles I couldn t get there in time. Ron and his staff stayed there until 7:30 when I got there. I left with my new bike at 10:15. That's customer service!!!! Most of the paperwork was done when I got there. One of the smoothest transactions I've ever made!!!! Thank you guys again!!! I love the bike!!!

    The staff there were patient and worked diligently to make sure I left with the bike I wanted. Chad and Andrew worked their magic with financing to come up with a plan that worked for me as well. They understood I drove 180 miles one way to stop in so they didn't want me leaving empty handed. Great staff and great bikes all around. I would highly recommend anyone going through Approval Powersports if/when looking to get a new bike!

    I would highly recommend Approval Powersports to anyone looking for a bike. I don't have the best credit and was afraid trying to get my dream bike would never happen. I drove over 400 miles one way up to take a shot. The staff here are amazing. Chad and Andrew worked for several hours with the banks and was finally able to secure me a loan for my bike. The terms were fantastic. Their staff then had my bike delivered, again over 400 miles away, directly to my front door. And it didn't cost me any extra for the delivery. I am now the proud owner of a brand new 2015 Yamaha VStar. I couldn't be happier with my overall experience with the team here. They will do whatever it takes to make your dream a reality.

    Bill McGough - Review for Ron Quinkert

    3/31/2017

    This review is for Ron Quinkert. This is who I worked with from start to finish. Originally last Friday I came in there with doubts I'd get approved. Ron did what he could and got me approved for a 2016 R6 for pretty cheap payments. He even got me the hookup with a nice pair of riding gloves, kept the shop open 2 hours after closing to wait for me to come and sign on the bike, and THAT night delivered the bike an hour and a half away to my driveway. Shop closed at 6, he was out until 10PM. Thank you Ron!!!!
