Harbro Auto Sales got its rather unconventional start as a gas station and repair facility in Linwood, Massachusetts— right as the OPEC oil embargo was taking place in 1973. As a gas station unable to purchase gasoline to serve his customers, Tim Hare, convinced his new bride to allow him to sell her recently paid-off car and use the profit to purchase other used vehicles he could repair and sell. We've been a family-owned and operated used car dealership ever since, 47 years later.
Despite our humble beginnings, we've grown up in this business and consider ourselves experts in the automotive industry. In fact, Mike Hare, (Tim's oldest son) was the very first Certified Master Dealer in the state of Massachusetts— it's no wonder that DealerRater has rated us as one of the Best Dealerships in Massachusetts, including winning Massachusetts Dealer of the Year in 2013 and 2014. Because we are family-owned, we have the ability to source vehicles from all manufacturers, not just limit ourselves to one or two; so you can be confident that we are picking the best possible vehicle options for our lot. Simply put— if we don't like it— we don't buy it. We spend hours researching vehicles to make sure we are buying the right vehicle at the right price, so that we can sell it fairly without the advertising games and gimmicks.
We may be smaller than some of the major players in the industry, but we are confident that once you experience carjoy at either one of our dealerships, you will want to invite your friends and family to experience the difference buying "small" can make for themselves. We care about our customers because we wouldn't be here without you.
