What Our Customers Are Saying
Quick and Painless
I've dealt with Runkle's for years and they've always been great to deal with (unlike going into DMV where it's frustrating to say the least). I did a fairly complex motorcycle deal recently and it was just a piece of cake for them. Recommended!

Great job! Always very efficient!
I had to visit to get a duplicate title to a vehicle I was trading in. When I ran into some problems Lisa Getz was able to point me in the right direction and help me get done what I needed. She went above and beyond!!!! Always a very pleasant experience going!!

Very Helpful Service
Our representative was Kathy and she was very professional, courteous, and helpful. She was also very knowledgeable about the services we required. She is an asset to Runkles and I always come to Runkles instead of going anywhere else because of the fast, polite, and experienced staff. Keep up the excellent work! Thank you.
