We purchased a CFMoto Side x Side from Paulson's. This was amazingly positive experience from the initial moment we walked onto the lot to the closing of the deal. Everyone involved was engaging, helpful and positive without a hint of pressure. The purchase was made with confidence much to the atmosphere created by the entire staff at Paulson's. They took time to help us and answer all questions we had. We highly recommend this dealer who worked to earn our trust and made our experience a pleasure.

Probably the best buying experience I've ever had. Awesome work and commitment by the sales/finance staff. I couldn't have asked for more. I got exactly what I wanted at a better than expected price. Will definitely be referring friends.

Great experience dealing with Paulson's. One of the least painful deals I have ever done, and love the parts department they are nicely organized with a great variety ... I will certainly be back

Thanks to the entire staff at Paulson's Motorsports. The entire staff from sales to service made my purchase of a new concours a very pleasant and exciting experience. You guys (And Gals) are the best! I shopped prices all over the state and you had the best deal of all. You have created a loyal customer! As Arnold would say "I'll be back" :-)Thank You!

In 1906 Annen Paulsen of Flottorp Norway gathered up his available cash and sent his 2 sons Tom and Bert Paulson to America in the hopes of a better life, Tom and Bert made the journey by ship to Ellis Island. While being processed the clerk at Ellis Island misspelled their last name as Paulson instead of Paulsen. The Brothers, knowing very little English didn't say anything and the spelling stuck.

The brothers settled in Tacoma WA and opened a bicycle and motorized bicycle repair shop and quickly became Washington's first Thor Motorcycle dealer. Bert and Tom eventually split the business, Bert took the Jewelry side made the transition into appliances, televisions (when they came out) and furniture, while Tom went into the car business.

Cliff and Art Paulson (Bert's sons) joined the team when they were old enough, Cliff eventually took over the appliance TV business and Art took over the jewelry business. Through the years Paulson's has sold many kinds of merchandise including appliances, furniture, carpeting, electronics, hot tubs, cars, satellite systems, and of course motorcycles.
