Bedford Sales - Morris, Illinois

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have found a used boat in Morris, Illinois at a dealer by the name of Bedford Sales. The deal on the boat is pretty good and they said they won't let it go out the door until they fully inspected it. I am wondering if anyone has ever delt with Bedford and can share their experience. The deal is borderline too good to be true, but still somewhat believable for a 20+ year old boat in good condition with some bells and whistles. Thanks.

Bedford is where I bought my new Ranger many years ago. I’ve known the owner forever. They aren’t big on discounts on new boats, but they’ve been around doing good service for a long time. I trust them.

If you are coming from Omaha, you won’t be going back for service. Makes sure they double check for any issues

Its a used boat. I talked to Sam (the owner) and he said he wouldn't let it go until it had been thoroughly inspected and tuned up (compression test, water pump, etc)... And wouldn't be ready until January and it wouldn't impact the price...

 

The thoroughness seemed too good to be true... But all the reviews and such I can find suggest that is just the culture at Bedford Sales.

That's the advantage over buying from a private party. You'll know it's been checked.

I have had my previous boat serviced by them, and was working with them on trying to get a new Ranger. I ended up going with a Skeeter, but they were great to work with. I even called them to see if they could work on my Yamaha since my local dealer closed shop. They told they dont, but steered me towards a dealer that does.
