History of the Gilbert Family of Companies
In business in Okeechobee since 1924, the Gilbert Family of Companies is driven by dedication – dedication to our customers and our community. It is this dedication that has allowed us to serve Okeechobee for nearly 100 years.
Building on the success of Gilbert Oil Company, Gilbert Chevrolet opened its doors in 1933 and brought with it our Gilbert Pre-Owned department and the Gilbert Collision Center. Offering new and used Chevrolet vehicles, along with pre-owned vehicles of most makes and models, Gilbert Chevrolet can serve all your automotive buying needs. Our Service Department’s 21-bay facility is ready to work on all makes and models. Purchase your vehicle somewhere else? No problem. We will still be here to help with all your service and warranty needs. History and dedication to Okeechobee… Gilbert Has It.
