Baker Motor Company Opens Second Lowcountry Mercedes-Benz Dealership in Mount Pleasant
Tommy B. Baker, owner and president of Baker Motor Company of Charleston, Inc., is pleased to announce that Mercedes-Benz of Mount Pleasant is now open, located at 2121 Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant, SC. The dealership was formerly known as Baker Motor Company of Mount Pleasant, specializing in pre-owned sales. The building has been completely reconstructed and is Baker’s second factory-authorized Mercedes-Benz dealership in the Charleston area.
Baker Motor Company is the only dealer group to operate two Mercedes-Benz points, not only in the Charleston Tri-County area, but the entire state of South Carolina. The company was founded in 1988 with the Mercedes-Benz brand as its original franchise, which is still operating on the original campus located at 1511 Savannah Highway in Charleston, SC. Mercedes-Benz has been the dealership’s leading flagship brand for over 27 years.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have two Mercedes-Benz dealerships in the area providing convenience to clients that reside both East of the Cooper River and West of the Ashley River. The population is forever expanding in Mount Pleasant and it’s not the sleepy little town I grew up in,” said Mr. Baker, a Mount Pleasant native. “Mercedes-Benz of Mount Pleasant is one of the most updated Mercedes-Benz facilities in America and we’re proud of everything the dealership has to offer.”
The 25,000 square foot Mount Pleasant campus features a state-of-the-art service drive, an outdoor deck customer lounge and two interior customer lounges. One of the indoor lounges is equipped with luxurious amenities including large screen televisions and comfortable sofas. It is referred to as a “mini movie theatre” by Mr. Baker.
The Mount Pleasant dealership offers the same added benefits with each car purchase as the West Ashley location, including free car washes, Saturday service, complimentary pick-up and delivery service, a fleet of Mercedes-Benz service loaners and more.
Mr. Baker added, “We have designed an ownership experience that is second to none at both our Mount Pleasant and West Ashley Mercedes-Benz dealerships. Every detail has been thought out to make the buying experience exceptional for everyone who walks through the door, befitting this world class brand.”
Mercedes-Benz of Mount Pleasant will be led by the company’s tenured executive team and new Center Director Bennett Gault and Service Manager Jason Holt. “We’ve assembled a professional team in Mount Pleasant equal to the excellence of our award winning team in West Ashley,” added Baker.
