The Story Behind The Owner
Chad Winters, the owner of Winters Automotive, experience in the automotive industry began when he was just fourteen years old at Graybill Bros. He started out by mowing the yard, cleaning the shop, and learning how to clean vehicles properly. As his time continued there, he began training on how to repair cars and started doing small repairs like oil changes and changing tires. Subsequently, he started to work on motors, wiring problems, and trouble shooting. When he turned eighteen, Graybill Bros. hired him as a salesman to sell vehicles and later became the youngest general sales manager at twenty-three.
The Evolution of Winters Automotive & Trailers
In August 2008, Chad decided to launch Winters Automotive, LLC in Mountville. Initially, the business focused on cleaning cars, and eventually, it also started servicing cars and trucks. In early 2009, Chad opened the car lot and a full-service repair shop that also offered state inspections, emissions, and much more. As Winters Automotive grew, Chad started looking for a larger location where the business could grow. In April 2013, Winters Automotive bought M & P Motors at 39 W. Maple St., located in East Prospect.
In need of a trailer for a growing business, Chad and his wife, Lisa, went out on a journey to find the perfect trailer at the perfect price. After a long and wasteful Saturday spent searching, the pair left dissatisfied with the manufacturers and customer service. Chad decided to open a trailer dealership. He strived to do a better job of taking care of his customers and helping them find what they were looking for.
Winters Automotive, LLC carries 100+ enclosed or open trailers at either location at any given time! We always carry manufacturers such as Aluma, American Hauler, Cargo Mate, Continental Cargo, Force, Forest River, Lightning, Optimus Industry, Pequea, Rance, Ultra Lavratories, and Wells Cargo.
During the holiday season in December of 2016, Winters added an exciting new department, Winters Accessories. Winters became an authorized dealer for Curt, eXtang, AVS, Husky, Weathertech and many more. In our showroom alone, we have on display their items along with others such as hitches and attachments for all vehicles. We also carry the necessities for vehicle maintenance such as oil filters, bulbs, and cleaning supplies.
In August 2021, Chad opened his second trailer location, Winters Trailer Sales, LLC, in Brownstown, PA at 4170 Oregon Pike, Ephrata. The new Ephrata branch is situated at the old Star Transporters location, which had been owned and operated by popular local resident, Bernie Cochran. Even though the businesses are located in York and Lancaster County, we sell trailers nationwide.
Winters Automotive offers all the services customers expect from a full-service shop, including but not limited to state inspections and emissions on cars, trucks, and trailers. We are a one-stop-shop!
