Grooms Motors & Automotive

The Grooms family still provides old-fashioned customer service with cutting edge green technology.

Grooms patriarch, Rodney, operated the automotive business at the location from 1968 to 1998. Our family wants this new chapter of the business to be a throwback to the vision Rodney believed in and the kind of customer service he offered back then.

Grooms Motors & Automotive is engaged with the community, hosting and sponsoring events. It’s something we want to do and something we love to do.
