About Us

Richmond Motor Sales was founded on May 1, 1951 by Frank and Bertha Bergsma. They purchased the Business from Bertha’s mother (Millers Nippersink Garage). Ron Bergsma worked at the dealership part-time thru High School and became a full time employee June 1, 1960. Ron and Barb purchased the dealership
from his parents on October 1, 1977.

Richmond Motor Sales has ASE certified technicians. We service most makes and models. The service department is open 6 days a week including ALL DAY SATURDAY.

Since June 9, 2009 when Chrysler terminated our Franchise we have continued to give the same sales and service experience that you have been accustom too. We have a fine selection of pre-driven automobiles and trucks to fit all budgets.
