This dealership is fantastic!!! Their cars are immaculate and the customer service was incredible! I had gone to a well known dealership the night before and left offended. The cars advertised as" immaculate" were anything but. The next day I went to High Quality Imports and what a difference! I purchased a 2008 Saab SUV and it looked brand new! No scratches, the interior was spotless and they couldn't do enough to accommodate me. I drove almost 2 hours to the dealership and it was well worth the trip! As a woman purchasing a Used Car, the process can be unnerving. This was not the case at High Quality Imports. They were professional, courteous and couldn't be any nicer. I'd recommend this dealership to anyone. Their cars are in incredible condition and the people who work there couldn't be any nicer. They went above and beyond for me. I am thrilled with my new car and when I'm in the market to buy another one, I will be driving the 2 hours back to this dealership!
We just purchased a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport, with 67,000 miles on it. The price was the best you can expect for that year and that many miles. Greg Bosoy was our salesman, but we also ended up working with Robert Broit and (I think it was) their boss, also Greg. I've only had the vehicle for a day, so I will try to remember to place another review after I've had it for awhile. We were made aware before we committed to the purchase that it was as-is. Everyone was very friendly, and went out of their way to work with us. We had a limit on what we could spend, and they were willing to negotiate a little on the price. I am hoping that we have no issues, but Greg did tell us that we could work something out if we did (meet halfway, so to speak). I gave only 3 stars for Facilities, because they need to fix the heat in the showroom! In summary, I would recommend High Quality Imports if asked.
In general, people seem to place a negative connotation on car dealerships and car salesmen. I have dealt with my fair share of car dealerships and this place was by far the best. High Quality Imports exceeds all expectations and truly defines a high class act. One individual in particular, George, is the most genuine, trustworthy, kind gentleman i have ever met in my life. Not only was he not pushy with the car, but he gave me the freedoms and all the knowledge i needed prior to making the purchase. I would recommend this dealership to anyone in the country and stand behind these words. If you do go, be sure to ask for George. I will even continue my services with this dealership and have my car serviced with them for years to come. A purely sensational experience.
Recently had the pleasure to assist my grandson in the purchase of a 2010 F150 pickup truck. The truck was in exceptionally good condition, and looked like new. We were aided in the process by Armin and Jay. They were courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable. Armin took us out for a test drive, and Jay spent time with us going over our queries regarding the truck. Then we moved on to Robert in finance. He was also very helpful, and explained how we could shorten payoff time on the truck. Overall, it was a good experience, and I would recommend High Quality to anyone interested in purchasing a car or truck that will exceed their expectations. It's like the name says.......High Quality Imports is certainly high quality!

Love my Infinity. Was thinking about new car, but while searching for I stopped by at High Quality Imports in Woodbridge NJ to see this 2011 Infinity G37xs. People at high quality were so professional and explained every aspect between buying new and used car, after what I was able to make my decision on witch car to buy. My Infinity, priced wright, looks beautiful, runs and drives 100%. I have recommended High Quality Imports to few of my friends and two have bought cars from High Quality and they also very happy with their purchase. If you planning to buy a used car make sure you visit guys at High Quality, I'm sure you will have a great experience at this dealership.
Neither of the trucks I looked at worked out for me, but it wasn't the dealer's fault. I am looking for something very specific, and probably almost unrealistic.....so the trucks they had were what was stated online.....I almost purchased the red Dakota, but noticed the beginnings of rust on the back quarter panel - which is very common in those models....but is exactly what I'm trying to find and prevent. The salesman, Louie, was very helpful and kind....and not the least bit pushy. In fact, I hope they end up getting in what I want....as I would love to make a purchase from them.
By far one of the best car buying experiences that I have ever had! Jay the salesman was very informative about the vehicles and not your typical pushy salesman at all. He took his time and was very respectfull. Next I sat with Greg who helped me get the best rate possible! He literally worked with the banks for hours to get me the best deal he could!!! These guys are great at what they do, and I am very impressed with the quility, and professionalism of there buisness! Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a vehicle.
When there and was taken care of as if i was someone they knew. Everything was explained and they pointed out all the fine prints. Customer service was there and there was no pressure as to what to buy. They only gave advice and if i didn't want want an addition it was just not pressured. Even after i bought the vehicle, they where still concerned about my safety of how i will get home as the car was my first manual transmission vehicle. Would and will recommend anyone.
I must say High Quality Imports Makes the Buying process quick and easy. I worked with two very professional and caring salesmen named Armin And Jay. I Bought a 2010 Ford F150 that is in Amazing Condition. Not only was my F150 in amazing condition every truck i looked at was great fully serviced clean and ran smooth. Financing was made easy thanks to Robert the Finance Manager at the end of the day i drove home with a great truck that i will use for work
Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
