About Karl Chevrolet
When Carl Moyer first opened his doors in January 1978 in Ankeny Iowa, he started with nothing more than a vision and a plan. He quickly established a set of ground rules that put the customer number one, treating everyone the same after a sale, just as during the purchase process. With his hands-on approach and daily involvement, Carl can proudly say this attitude has not change in over 40 years.
In 2007, Carl Moyer introduced Karl Chevrolet as Your Dealer For Life, with the realization that this is much more than a slogan. It's a commitment and a promise Carl personally made to invest in the customer to provide a premier automotive experience. The bottom line... Carl and his team at Karl Chevrolet want their customers coming back and to be kept as a customer for life.
In 2017 Carl Moyer brought this philosophy to the newest addition to the Karl Chevrolet family, Karl Chevrolet of Stuart in Stuart, Iowa.
2018 Marks the 40th Anniversary of Karl Chevrolet and the Karl Brand.
