When we say that we are the 1st place for Chevrolet in the Bay Area,
we really mean it! Mr. F.H. Dailey established the F.H. Dailey Company 100 years ago, in 1910. Originally located at the corner of 41st Avenue and 14th Street in Oakland, the company sold all types of conveyances that would move people, goods or loads of any kind. “FH” quickly realized that motorized vehicles were the wave of the future. With that in mind, he added “Motor” to the name, chose to sell Chevrolets - and the rest, as they say, is history! We say we are 1st not just because we
have been in business in the East Bay for 100 years, but because we
probably have put more Chevrolets on more roads and in more garages and driveways throughout the Bay Area than any other local Chevy dealer. Our Customers Make All The Difference!
Our Customers Make All The Difference!
We have loyal customers who enjoy their relationship with us, because they know that they come first. 25 years after our founding, our 1936 brochure stated:
Success of the F.H. Dailey Motor Co. is founded on four things … absolutely fair treatment for every customer, provision of the most complete service facilities, skilled workmen and courtesy. Our strict adherence to these principles ever since this concern was founded in 1910 has won the goodwill of thousands of customers, who rely on us for every automotive need.
This goodwill is our greatest asset.
Today, we still stand by everything that statement says about us!and driveways throughout the Bay Area than any other local Chevy dealer
Employee Longevity Speaks For Itself!
With staff members still in our employ who have been hired during every decade
since “the 60s”, we are proud to call them part of our F.H. Dailey family. And we know that our customers -- their children and even their grandchildren -- appreciate being able to deal with the same salespeople, service staff, parts employees and technicians throughout the life of their vehicle and beyond – well into their next vehicle, and then the one after that. In fact, you are likely to see most of the same familiar faces every time you visit us. We’ve Grown While Others Have Stayed
