With decades of combined experience in the luxury car industry, Chris and Jason decided to use their expertise to create a different kind of dealership that nurtured a unique experience for their clientele. They aspired to create an environment where clients felt both comfortable and excited while looking at cars.
The cars that Tactical Fleet acquires are artwork in themselves, Chris and Jason recognized the need to get out of the way and let the cars do the talking. No more bland coffee bar with weathered magazines and car posters, be gone suits and ties. Instead they wanted the cars to speak for themselves. Polished concrete and white walls replace drab tile and wood finishes, allowing the myriad of bright colored exotics to pop.
Just transparent prices, unparalleled vehicle knowledge, honest people, and an extensive collection of top-tier exotic’s. Since 2018, that’s what’s made Tactical Fleet a different kind of dealership. Tactical Fleet now has three locations, offering a variety of pristine cars from coast to coast.
