A Growing Family of Business
Weld County Garage Inc. now contains five locations with nearly 300 employees serving all the automotive needs of Northern Colorado residents.
In 1987, Weld County Garage purchased land to build a second service location and move the rapidly growing GMC sales to the east side of town off of Hwy 85. This new location was named Truck City and served truck needs for customers of Greeley and surrounding towns. With service business continuing to grow, Truck City grew out of its original location and moved into its current location 2 blocks north at 1415 1st Ave. At about the same time Weld County Garage moved into its new location in west Greeley, GMC sales moved to that location so the full Truck City building could be used for light and medium-duty service and fleet management.
Herbies Auto Sales
In 1989, Lee Yoder opened a J.D. Byrider franchise in Greeley, one of the first in the country. This location helped local customers with bruised credit situations to get into transportation and work to rebuild their credit. In May of 2000, Lee Yoder decided to form an independently owned buy-here-pay-here and named it Herbies Auto Sales. In 2018, Herbies is transitioning to a larger location and updating the look, feel and operation of the business with the new name DriveWise. This new name and location still offer the highest in respect and customer service to those with bruised credit in need of vehicle financing.
Abra Autobody and Glass
In February of 2009, Weld County Garage purchased an Abra franchise and moved its auto body shop to a brand-new location at 2835 S 31st Ave. For nearly 10 years Abra Greeley has been a convenient and thriving full-service auto body, paint and glass location serving Greeley and surrounding areas.
In May of 2014, Weld County Garage Inc. purchased the Subaru franchise from Ehrlich and created Greeley Subaru. Greeley Subaru quickly grew out of its original location in East Greeley and in November of 2016 moved into its brand-new Subaru Certified Eco-Friendly location on 47th Ave in west Greeley just 2 blocks from the current Weld County Garage location. Greeley Subaru is thriving in its current location with Subaru sales, service and parts in one convenient location.
