Father-son duo open used car dealership in Brandon


Sisson Auto Finance and Sales recently opened in Brandon at 1625 Parker Blvd. The dealership was started by the father-son duo of Jason and Jaydan Sisson. The two have a combined 34 years in the automotive industry, including 26 for Jason and 8 for Jaydan.

Jason tells bdnmb.ca that they decided to branch out on their own for a number of reasons. “While there were certainly lots of great personal opportunities available in a large auto group and we seriously considered offers to move to other cities and provinces, in the end Brandon is our home and we’re committed to this city.  Starting a business from the ground up gives you an enormous amount of flexibility and creativity to really create a new buying experience for the people of Westman.”

A big part of our decision to open was the location.  Parker Boulevard has really become a vehicle power centre.  We have Giant Car Wash on one side of us, Brandon Radiator and Auto Service directly across the street, Resurrection Paint Correction and Auto Detailing around the corner, a MPI broker at CAA two doors down and Husky and Co-op Gas bars at the end of the street.”

The location can fit about 8 vehicles indoors and roughly 30 outside if they park them just right. The dealership will mostly stock a mix of cars, trucks, vans and SUV’s from about $10,000 to $30,000. “But we are also really good at finding that specific vehicle a customer might be looking for,” added Jason. “Our Vehicle Locating Service has become a cornerstone of our business.”

On why you should shop at Sisson Auto Finance and Sales, Jason shared, “Our processes.  We designed the business from the ground up to be an easy, comfortable and fast experience.  Our website was built so you can purchase a vehicle completely on-line if you choose.  Even before all the current events, we were structured for a zero contact purchase.  We offer a 3 day full refund, 30 day exchange option and minimum warranty plans with roadside assistance with every purchase.”

The dealership will also offer pre-approvals and credit score consultations. Their consignment program is also unique to Brandon.  They can sell your car safely for you rather than trying to sell privately.  For a small fee they will include a CarFax report, professional photos, description and advertising on 6 Major automotive websites, display, storage on their lot, insurance, and regular cleanings.  They also have access to financing and can take a trade-in which is usually an issue for private sellers.

Sisson Auto Finance and Sales are currently open by appointment for private vehicle viewings and credit consultations. Jason encourages people to check out their website and to feel free to reach out to them with questions or for advice without feeling any obligation to purchase.
