5 STARS – GOOGLE – July 2020

Thank you, Wendy and Barry for excellent customer service in the recent purchase of our new vehicle. You go above and beyond and demonstrate patience, caring and teaching as you guide customers through their choice. We actually looked at another vehicle in April and test drove it. Barry was considerate and did not pester us with high pressure sales tactics. Wendy does a highly professional job of completion of paper work and takes time to explain details slowly. Barry had the vehicle ready, impeccably detailed and full of gas when we picked it up. We will definitely be repeat customers and will recommend you folks to our friends and family! Thank you a million times over! ~Ross and Diann T



“We purchased a 2017 Ram Laramie 4×4 Quad-Cab Truck – beautiful black with chrome, exactly 3 weeks ago from Jackson Motors.  We love our truck.  It was purchased mainly for my hubby – but I get the privilege to drive it a bit too!  We have been friends with Barry & Wendy for a few years now.  We already knew what amazing people they were.  We were just toying with the idea of buying a newer truck – but nothing serious.  I went on the Jackson Motor’s website and saw this beauty.  I love the pictures they provide – of every angle so you know exactly what you are getting.  I showed the hubby and we made an appointment to test-drive the truck the next day.   The pictures didn’t lie – the 2017 Ram was in exceptional shape and when we test drove it – it sealed the deal.  Barry explained everything about the truck to my husband and Wendy and I talked finance.  I went to my bank but wasn’t satisfied with the terms they were offering so I went back to Wendy and she went to work and found us a very nice rate, and explained every little detail to us.   We signed the paperwork and the deal was done.  Barry had the truck all safetied and ready to go for us 2 days later.  I love the fact that Barry is a mechanic and that he knows his stuff.  He went over everything with the hubby and said to stop by if we had any questions at all.  His Slogan “Buy from a Mechanic, not a guy in a tie” sure fits him well.  Wendy was so knowledgeable, patient, and just so easy to talk with – she made the whole process feel like we just had to push the “Easy” button.  This couple, they certainly are the ones you want to see first when buying a vehicle – I can’t praise them enough.   We are a very happy satisfied couple that will come back to see them when I need a newer vehicle myself, and we highly recommend them to everyone!”

My wife and I just had a chance to work with Barry and Wendy for our recent purchase of a Ford Expedition. They were both both really great to deal with. Wendy, you were so methodical and thorough with the details you shared for the delivery of the truck. We appreciated it! It came up in our conversation that the internet has been a great equalizer that allows smaller privately owned dealers to get good exposure on the internet. It seems to me that this “equalizer” was truly serving the benefit of us as the buyers. What a pleasure to work with a team with integrity that’s big enough to get the job done and small enough to care! Well worth the drive from Ottawa!”


“We would HIGHLY recommend Jackson Motors to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle. Both Barry and Wendy ( and Monster, the dog, of course) were a pleasure to meet and deal with. They are very down to earth, friendly people .
Barry went above and BEYOND our expectations getting the truck ready for pick up and Wendy is such a pleasure to deal with. She made the experience so smooth and easy by taking care of and explaining everything from start to finish very thoroughly.
Very positive buying experience.” Garry and Cindy

Hi Wendy and Barry;  I cannot thank you both enough for the effort put in to finding the exact vehicle I wanted. I know that Barry searched high and low to find me a vehicle that was not” WHITE!” Wendy your efficient handling of the financial aspect coupled together with  Barry’s expert knowledge regarding vehicles made this to be a an easy process (at least for me). You both went above and beyond !!!!

I would not hesitate to recommend Jackson Motors to our family and friends for their future vehicle purchases



Hi, Wendy and Barry,I tried to write the message below on your testimonial page; however, I couldn’t figure out how so I’m hoping you can take it from this email and place it on your testimonial page. Thanks:

We were very impressed with the manner in which Barry and Wendy treated us when we first arrived at Jackson Motors and Marine in Brockville. Right from the start we felt confident that Barry was very knowledgeable of all his vehicles. Usually when buying a car from dealers there is so much wheeling and dealing for hours, it’s unnerving. With Barry there was none of this. The cost was discussed, an amiable agreement was met and we were very happy and satisfied customers within an hour.

Barry and Wendy we can’t thank you enough. It was such a beautiful ride home to Nova Scotia in our new SUV (BMW). When our son is looking to replace his car in the future, there’s a good chance we will have the pleasure of meeting with you again.

Thank you once again Barry and Wendy.

Wendy and Barry are probably the most honest people you will ever meet! They will try their hardest to ensure you get a vehicle that is the absolute best for you. I cannot say enough good things about them both. You will not be disappointed when you get a vehicle from them. Barry will make sure you get the best car possible and Wendy will make sure you get world class service. Thanks to you both!

I understand that I’m a younger than average customer looking at cheaper than average vehicle though when someone is looking to spend over 6000 on your business, the least you can do is be somewhat interested in completing the sale.  No matter what the sale is, saying it isn’t worth your time to make the sale is completely unprofessional, especially from the owner.
Response from the owner, Barry Jackson (Mar 2017)

Mathew, I know you are disappointed that we would NOT sell you the AS IS used truck. I hear you and I understand your frustration. As I previously explained to you, the truck required too much work and it is a “handy man” special. I know from my experience as a Class A Mechanic for 35 years, that the truck you looked at from our AS IS/AS TRADED section would far exceed your $5,000 budget… today and most likely down the road since the truck already has over 170,000 kms. 

I have always been a really big believer in great customer service and it is hard for me to come to terms with the idea that I have to say no to someone – thankfully it happens only rarely.

While I wouldn’t sell you that vehicle since I didn’t think it would be suitable as your first ride, I could help you find a Safety and E-Tested truck in the price range that fits your budget should you decide to give us the opportunity. Your age and budget had nothing to do with not selling to you Matthew, I hope you understand. Best regards, Barry Jackson

We have been looking for a new car for a while and searched everywhere between Ottawa and Belleville. Did not not know a great deal about Jackson Motors and Marine but decided to check them out. So happy we did!!! We found THE car we were looking for and Wendy and Barry were wonderful to deal with. We would absolutely recommend them. Thank you so much, for this professional, stress free experience.

Buying a used vehicle is not an easy task, so what makes Jackson Motors stand out is how easy Wendy and Barry make it. The asking price for the car I was interested in was reasonable as well the trade-in price. There is no long negotiation needed and the whole deal was done in under an hour. It was well worth the drive from Ottawa.
I can highly recommend Jackson Motors and Marine for a friendly welcome, quality cars and professional service.

Hi Barry & Wendy,

Just a quick note to say thank you for making my new car purchase such a pleasure! It was a bit of a drive for me, but so well worth it for your wonderful service and fair approach to the whole process of purchase and trade. I love my new SUV and would highly recommend your business to others wanting to purchase a “new” used car!

All the best,
Abbey (St. Catharines, 2016)

Hi Wendy and Barry,

I am sorry this is coming to you late but none the less a HUGE THANK YOU for helping us move forward with the purchase of our (My) Mazda! Wendy you went over and above and we can not thank you enough for being so kind to do that! It sure was a whirlwind of a deal. Barry you certainly have a good eye when you go to purchase vehicles, and this was mine in my mind when I had only seen pics online! We have had a road trip to Ohio this summer and it was a wonderful ride!

Thanks again for your friendly, dedicated customer service!

Hi Wendy, I really like the Jeep – it runs great and I get a lot of compliments of how nice it looks. Please give my thanks to Barry for all of his doings for getting the Jeep ready for me… I am being asked for your website address quite often.
