European Motors Volvo goes way back…

In 1970 European Motors was founded by Thomas A. Beil in Reading, Pennsylvania. The company was created to service all kinds of European made vehicles. Shortly after beginning in business Tom, most commonly known as, Volvo Tom, recognized the exceptional engineering that the Volvo brand of cars offered. He slowly moved his business toward working exclusively on Volvos. Sometime in the mid 70’s, Volvo Tom had so many requests from customers to help find used cars, that Tom decided to open a used car business.

European Motors Volvo | Reading PASince that time European Motors has offered Volvos for sale and at their business location, 2861 Perkiomen Avenue Reading, PA 19606. Tom has since retired and European Motors has changed in to two companies. European Motors, LLC is the service department and is owned and operated by his son Nate. European Motors Pre-Owned, LLC handles the Volvo sales and will meet all of your Volvo buying needs.

Nate, who graduated from Millersville University with a degree in Mechanical Technology, joined his father full time at European Motors in 2005. Nate grew up at European Motors and spent many hours under the hood of Volvos, working side by side with his father. You will often see him with his company mascots, Maverick and Remington, commonly known as “The Boys”, these young beagles warmly greet customers as they stop in to look at cars or stop by for Volvo service at European Motors. Together Tom and Nathan have specialized in finding clean, well-cared-for, used cars.

Aaron Pilkerton was brought on in the Spring of 2010 to help Nate. With European Motors, LLC and European Motors Pre-Owned, LLC growing by leaps and bounds, Aaron provides great help in the day-to-day process of servicing and selling Volvos.

European Motors Pre-Owned, LLC is one of the few automotive dealerships where you can purchase your new car and have it serviced by the very same person who assisted you in the sales process. When dealing with our company, when you discuss cars you will be talking to the sales person and the automotive technician as well.
