Fontana, CA (PressExposure) October 01, 2008 -- Sunday, September 13th Lieutenant Kris Nekvinda of the United States Marine Corps. arrived home after 8 months from his forth deployment to Iraq. Kris was greeted by his Wife Kelly, daughter Madison, and oddly enough two employees from R&B Auto Center, Robb Evans and Krista Moyers.
Kris has never met either of the R&B employees face to face but did start communicating with Internet Manager, Robb Evans in late August regarding a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Through the great technology of the Internet Kris and Robb were able negotiate pricing and terms for the sale of the Jeep from thousands of miles away. Lieutenant Kris Nekvinda felt comfortable handing the rest of the Jeep transaction to his wife, Kelly. Kris was under the impression that when he returned to 29 Palms they would make the trip to Fontana to take delivery of the Jeep. Kelly wanted to take it a step further and began to make her own mission with Robb Evans. Together they worked almost daily on arranging the funds for the Jeep and arranged for the Jeep to be delivered by R&B Auto Center on the date of Krisâs arrival.
Businesses surrounding 29 Palms display âWelcome Militaryâ signs, however most military families have become frustrated with these ads due to the fact that they canât, and will not make a decision in one day and want time to consult with their spouse, many businesses want the sale right now and are not willing to be patient and go through the 3 way communication. R&B Auto Center is truly âA Findâ said Kelly Nekvinda âIt is great to finally find a place that will work with us and wonât get frustrated that it canât be done in one day, and most of all arenât looking to rip us off!â
R&B Auto Center has supported our military troops and veterans in many ways, including the many Veterans Day events held at the dealership to raise money for the Veterans Hospital in Loma Linda, and participating in events to have letters and movies forwarded to the troops currently protecting our country in the Middle East.
On September 11th R&B Auto Center implemented special discounts to all Military Families and Veterans. Discounts can be used toward vehicle purchases, service and repairs. âThese discounts are the most aggressive offers that our dealership has ever extended, this is our way of thanking these deserving individuals for their commitment and service to our countryâ, said Jewlie Moyers.
R&B Auto Center has served the town of Fontana and surrounding cities with integrity and built a great reputation based on the service philosophy of treating customers like family. They are a strong staple in the community, many city officials and organizations rely on R&Bâs continual support.
R&B gives back to its community by donating more than $35,000.00 per year in monetary and in-kind contributions to support a variety of education, childrenâs and womenâs issues such as Loma Linda Childrenâs Hospital, Boys and Girls Club of Fontana, Ronald McDonald House, American Cancer Society, Families of Injured Veterans of America (FIVA), The American Red Cross, Veterans Hospital of Loma Linda, Humane Society of San Bernardino, Scholarship Programs at Local High Schools, and many more.
R&B Auto Center will continue to support their surrounding communities in years to come.
