About Us

Our Humble Beginnings

Tip Top Auto Shop started as a small mom and pop operation dedicated to selling quality vehicles at affordable prices to the people of the Bowmanville and the Durham Region. We’ve come a long way; in less than 10 years we’ve expanded our inventory significantly, have two locations, and best of all, our customers keep coming back to us again and again. We’re a proud, independent dealership that focuses on the needs of our customers. Tip Top Auto has a huge selection of quality pre-owned vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers. From luxury vehicles to small, inexpensive compact cars, we have the right vehicle to suit your needs and budget.

FINANCE DEPARTMENT

 

Andrew Buschert
Head Honcho

Andrew enjoys short walks to the fridge, highly caffeinated drinks, and watching the sunrise because his two young children woke him up so early. His most notable accomplishment is being the younger brother to Charissa and being blessed to work with her every day ;)

Whether you're looking to buy, sell or trade....come in and see us for the most competitive prices and our friendly, no-pressure sales environment!

Charissa Buschert
Solution Specialist

Charissa exudes such an extra special greatness....which is evidenced in all the bio's that she writes for this page ;)

She has been in the automotive industry for more years than her looks reveal and has developed a comprehensive understanding of the many unique financing and warranty programs available for you. She also loves the fact that she gets to work with her brother Andrew and best friend Janis every day in a fun and creative dealership! 

We at Tip Top Auto take great pride in our ability to ensure you feel that the vehicle you buy is customized to be perfectly YOURS!

Will MacDonald
Honcho

On top of his Vanna White vehicle tour guide skills, Janis (his sister) has opened our eyes to Will's hidden talent of being a master chef (in his opinion)!!! You can watch "Cooking with Will" by clicking on the link to our YouTube page  https://youtu.be/AfIaPwFTl-I

 Underneath the goofy winter hat he insists on wearing (against all sound advice) is a sweet, knowledgeable, easy to talk to guy who makes the car buying ordeal so much more enjoyable! As a bonus, if you need any tips on which vehicles can fit the most hunting, fishing or camping gear, he's got plenty of experience in those areas as well. 

Janis MacDonald
Solution Specialist

Janis has developed priceless relationships with our banks and lending companies so she can offer our customers exceptional financing solutions regardless of your credit situation!  Her desire is to arm you with insider knowledge on how the credit system works so you can improve your situation while driving away in your beautiful new vehicle. 

She has a beautiful teenage daughter who loves to come in and visit...seeing as Janis works with her brother Will and Bestie Charissa ;)

Any remaining free time she has is dedicated to the students of her church where she serves as Youth Pastor.

Grant Palmer
Multi Tasking Ninja

We don't always know where Grant is or what he's doing...but we do know we couldn't operate this place without him doing it!

Playing competitive hockey for many years taught him how to be a valued team player and we are blessed to have drafted him into our family.

John & Wilma a.k.a. Dad & Mom
Amazingly Supportive Parents

Who could ask for a better set of parents than these two?? They spend their well earned retirement shuffling vehicles all over Ontario to help their kids provide the best possible service to our customers! They offer love, joy, peace (& food lol) to our dealership staff and customers who have the pleasure of meeting them. With their help we are able to bring in the vehicle you are looking for when we don't already have it in stock as well as offer delivery right to your door!!!
