Sauder Motors History
Sauder Motors was started in 1977 in East Petersburg, Pennsylvania by H. Richard (Dick) Sauder and his son, Donald (Don) Sauder, at the current Lancaster Nissan location. Sauder Motors occupied that location through 1987 until they sold the building to an Acura dealership. In 1995, after working in different areas of the automobile industry, Don Sauder bought the property at 106 West Main Street in Strasburg from Walter S. Reinhart and Sons and re-opened Sauder Motors with his father, Dick, and son, Daryn Sauder. Dick Sauder worked with his son and grandson at the new location for three years, up until his death. All three generations helped to grow the business through the years.
Expansion to a new location
Don and Daryn Sauder continued the business and outgrew the location on Main Street as they began to expand and offer recreational vehicles. Wanting to offer more services to their customers, they began looking for a larger place to conduct business. In 2013, they purchased the property on Decatur Street, location of the former Garden Spot Bowling Center location that had burned down in 2011. They began to build a new office and shop that would allow them to offer both sales and service. The new location offers RV and vehicle service and a larger sales display area and wider variety of inventory for customers.
The Sauder Motors family and staff look forward to serving you. We hope to see you soon!
