Guy Strohmeiers Auto Centers Biography

Guy Strohmeier has been a part of the community of Lake and Mendocino Counties since 1971. 

 Beginning in vehicle sales in 1988 with another dealership Guy had developed a trusting relationship with his customers over the years.  In 2000 Guy began his own dealership, “Guy Strohmeier’s Auto Center” (GSAC), here in Lakeport.  When asking Guy what he loves about the business he commented by saying “ I love to seeing people smile when they drive away in their newly owned vehicle”. This is what sparked Guys passion to start his own dealership. 

Guy Strohmeier’s Auto Center is a full service dealership offering vehicle sales including some consignment vehicles, but mostly competitively priced low mileage previously owned vehicles. Unlike some dealerships that may inflate their pricing, Guy Strohmeier’s prices their vehicles close to Kelly Blue book with many vehicles well under the MSRP of the competitors. We often receive inquires from customers from all over the western states that are willing to travel hundreds of miles to purchase from Guy Strohmeier’s Auto Center.

 GSAC has a fully functional service department to take care of your vehicle which includes four full time mechanics, the Service Manager and two administrative staff.  GSAC also has a full service auto detail center for its customers.  There are 26 employees total employed by GSAC working between the two locations at 87 Soda Bay Road in Lakeport,  and 10 Orr Springs Road, in Ukiah.

Guy believes in giving back to the community and has donated monetarily to the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Lions Club, relay for life, meals on wheels, Lucerne and Lakeport Senior Centers, Elks Club, and has donated over 20 vehicles to the Boy Scouts and  “Sober Grad’s” to help encourage a non drinking policy for our high school graduates.

GSAC has approximately 70- 80% retention of customers that continue to return to GSAC for their next vehicle. Presently, GSAC is the number one dealership in both Lake and Mendocino counties for the sales of previously owned vehicles.   Our goal at GSAC is to continue to grow, assist the community, and develop a trusting relationship with our customers .

Why purchase from Guy Strohmeiers Auto Center?

Prior to my becoming the Internet Manager of Guy Strohmeiers Auto Center, I was first, a customer.

 What I enjoyed about  Guy Strohmeiers Auto Center approach to selling was their low key, no pressure style.  Secondly, the majority of the vehicles being sold at the dealership were priced very competitively.  It was refreshing to find a local dealership with the philosophy of no pressure selling at bargain pricing.

While searching the internet and making comparative estimates, I was only able to find one or two vehicles close to the same value for the same options and usually they were out of state or at least great distance from where I reside. 

Fast forward until today. After purchasing several vehicles over the years, I was hired by Strohmeiers Auto Center, as their Internet Manager. I am proud to be a part of this growing dealership.  Guy Strohmeiers Auto Center is presently the Number one dealership in both Lake and Mendocino Counties for previously owned vehicles. The majority of our dealerships customers are repeat buyers.    

There is a reason that we are Number One. There is a reason that the majority of our customers are repeat buyers. We would like to invite you to join our family of customers and friends and consider purchasing your next vehicle from us.

Guy Strohmeiers Auto Center invites you to come by and visit us, and see what everybody is talking about.
