We have been serving the Columbia area for over 45 years now, but our history goes back much further than that. Middle Tennessee is in our blood, and it's a part of who we are. There is a long lineage that leads us all the way to our present location in Columbia, and it all began back in Lewisburg in 1945. Clyde Roberts, along with his two sons, Lyndal and Bay, opened a Mobil Service Station & Garage. Just like that a family owned business was born. Lyndal soon left for his own pursuits, but the father-son team of Clyde and Bay just could not settle down. 1950 through 1955 had the two of them, along with Stanley Thompson, selling used cars right next to the old Baxter Garage on First Avenue. Still content in Lewisburg, Bay Roberts founded the Roberts Motor Company out on 2nd Avenue in 1956 shortly after Clyde's retirement.
In just three short years the Roberts family decided to move on over to 9320 Verona Avenue. A lot of memories were made under the shade of that tree. An old bus seat sat right there, and for many, that bus seat was a spot of comfort while we helped them determine their automotive future. That location was purchased for a mere $12,700 dollars. The investment paid off, and for many years we were a staple of customer service in Middle Tennessee. In 1971 we acquired a Toyota franchise and 30 years later we moved to our current location on the Nashville Highway in Columbia. A lot of time has passed since Clyde and Bay ran things, but our family owned atmosphere and attitude has not changed.
