First City Cars and Trucks began selling pre-owned cars and trucks in Rochester, New Hampshire on January 1st, 2000. Our Grand Opening was March 1st, 2000. At that time, our entire staff consisted of only two employees, Rick-O and Chris Jensen. Many local and many not-so-local customers quickly came to appreciate our "matter-of-fact" way of doing business.
In our first year, with an inventory of only 6 to 10 vehicles and no financing available, the store amazingly sold between 15 and 36 units monthly. In our second year, we increased our monthly sales to between 21 and 45 units!
In 2005, the First City Cars and Trucks set a new company record of 52 units in July.
In May 2009, a second First City opened in Gonic, New Hampshire. In February 2014, First City collectively sold 128 cars, trucks, sport utilities, and vans! We are now collectively selling between 80 to 100 vehicles monthly!
In 2015, First City opened the expansion of the Rochester lot. This allowed us to offer 20 additional vehicles at our 16 Milton Road store!
In 19 years, First City Cars and Trucks has sold over 11,000 vehicles in Rochester and beyond! Thank you so much to all who have purchased from us and for the many referrals you've provided. We appreciate your business and many kind words.
