About Us

Welcome to Merchants Auto!

A history of excellence since 1962

We’re proud to say that Merchants Auto is the largest pre-owned dealership in New Hampshire and the largest pre-owned car dealership in New England! We strive to save our customers time and money, and our ultimate goal is to provide an enjoyable and hassle-free car buying experience.

We serve all of New England, including the nearby cities and towns of Manchester, Concord, Auburn, Hooksett, and Bow.

The Largest Inventory in New England

We are positive you’ll find a vehicle that fits your needs and budget. Our 26-acre lot has hundreds of vehicles to choose from with more than 30 different makes — including hatchbacks, sedans, SUVs, pickups, sports cars, fuel-efficient models, compact cars, and work vans.

You can trust that our vehicles are safe, secure, and in the best possible condition. Our technicians rigorously inspect each one, otherwise known as a 128-point certified quality inspection, before we decide whether the vehicle should join our inventory. Plus, every vehicle comes with a comprehensive CARFAX history report so there are no surprises.

If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, we’ll consult with our sister business, Merchants Fleet, which is a national, corporate fleet management company that allows us to source nationwide inventory from our leasing fleet. This means you don’t have to visit multiple dealerships to find the right vehicle.

Low, Upfront Pricing

We don’t believe in surprises when it comes to the price of a vehicle, which is why we’re upfront about it. We offer the lowest pricing on pre-owned vehicles in New England with many factory warranties still in place.

We conduct extensive, educated market research and price our vehicles right the first time because we believe the car-buying experience should be a transparent one — and that includes price.

Shop In Person or Online

You can visit our showroom in Hooksett, NH, or browse our online shopping platform at your convenience. Browse by price, body style, brand, mileage, features, and more. Shopping from your home or office has never been easier, and our sales professionals are just a phone call away.

7-Day Moneyback Guarantee

We value your business and want you to be completely satisfied with your vehicle purchase! If not, you can exchange it within 7 days or 500 miles (whichever comes first). Buyer may exchange (in-person dealership purchases only) or return (online purchases only) the vehicle . Our team is here to ensure you drive away happy in a vehicle that’s the right fit for you!

Please note that while we strive to accommodate all return or exchange requests, exchanges are available for New Hampshire residents only, and are subject to various factors including lender financing policies and payment restrictions. We are unable to return vehicles sold or traded in as part of the original sales transaction.

Non-Commissioned Sales Professionals

Our staff works hard to ensure that you have a positive experience. We aim to take the stress and pressure out of purchasing a vehicle, which is why our sales professionals do not receive a commission. They are here to answer your questions and help you find the right vehicle.    

Affordable Financing Options

Our car loan experts can help you with the numbers. We have different financing options that are affordable, including loans for customers with any kind of credit.

Customers with low or no credit can get financing on good terms and on vehicles that have been repaired and certified by Merchants Auto Service Department Standards. Also, with every on-time payment your positive payment history counts by reporting them to Experian and Equifax Credit Bureaus.

The bottom line: No matter what your credit or financial situation, Merchants Auto has a variety of lending options that will help you get your next vehicle.

A Commitment to Community

While our primary focus may be on selling cars, our mission has always been to support and invest in our local community. Each fall, we donate over $100,000 to charities selected entirely by our employees, which have included Boy Scouts of America, Boston Children’s Hospital, The American Red Cross, and local animal shelters.
