valley ford

VLFCU is excited to feature Valley Ford of Huron as our September Dealership of the Month. Valley Ford of Huron is located at 55 Cleveland Rd. E. in Huron and offers a selection of both new and used vehicles. 

Valley Ford of Huron opened their doors in 1964 and since then has always displayed their Best Price in the windows for the vehicles. Charging customers a different price for the same car never made sense to them, so their philosophy is to establish your trust by cutting out the hassle of negotiating. Their goal is to simply help you find the right vehicle for you without any gimmicks. Their sales consultants are available to answer your questions as you shop the inventory. Call or stop by Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 am-8:00 pm, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am-6:00 pm, Fridays 9:00 am-5:30 or Saturdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
