About Elmer's Used Cars

To our customers and future customers: 

We believe in giving you a fast, friendly, and family-driven car buying experience. We respect your time by streamlining the process (vetting quality cars, quoting reasonable pricing, and walking you through the paperwork) so you don't have to waste the entire day at a dealership. 

Founded by Elmer Totherow in 1955, we've had a long history of providing friendly customer service - creating a no pressure environment where you can take the time you need to choose your next vehicle. Taking care of our customers and building relationships this way have allowed us to become the oldest used car dealership in the state of South Carolina. Today, as Elmer's family, we strive to continue his legacy of being a family owned business that treats you like you're one of our own.

These are the things that drive us and we're here to serve you. If you're looking for a vehicle - stop by Elmer's. If we have the vehicle you're looking for, we'd love to make it yours and get you back on the road.
