ABOUT US

Expat Auto was founded by long-time residents, father and son, with a passion to bring a little light to the darkness in the used car industry by helping the community in Chiang Mai to navigate through the car buying and selling process, as well as the ongoing vehicle ownership needs. 

Starting with only 1 car in their front yard, it eventually grew, by God’s grace alone, to what it is today, and will continue along as long as He wills!

 

  • 2009 - Founded at our first location where the first car was bought and prepped at our house garage! Humble beginnings.

 

  • 2013 - We moved to our second location in the San Sai area where we were able to start growing the service side of our business.

 

  • 2018 - We moved to our current location which has provided much more space for us to grow in many departments.

Purpose:  The Expat Auto Family seeks to honor God by positively impacting the lives of our employees, customers, and community.

Our Niche: Providing convenience and peace of mind through superior quality vehicles and automotive services

  • Humility – Pride in work while giving God the Glory. 
  • Service – to team, customers, and community on a personal and professional level.

    Go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Looking for a car, just buy it from here. If they don't have what you want, they'll source it. Easy.

    Always a great experience with them. If they dont have what you would like in stock they will locate exactly what you are looking for. They back all of their service, If your looking for a car you cant go wrong. Honesty is the best policy and they prove that everyday.
