Charles Tucker - President - All Types Aluminum Construction

Ray Gunder & Staff of Gunder's: We would like to thank all of you for your great service and dedication in completing a more than complicated job. Almost anyone can complete an easy job. You and your staff showed exactly what you are made of on "Big Red," and it is appreciated. It is refreshing to know that there are still people who take pride in what they do. Big Red is the 3rd vehicle we have taken to Gunder's in a six-year period, and I am proud to say that you have exceeded my expectations each time. Thank you for the excellent way that you do business.

Sister Joanne Boyle

Dear Ray, Deanie and Staff: Once again, thank you for taking care of our cars. We just don't know what we would do without your help. God loves you for your generosity, and I know we do.


About the GUNDER’S Auto Center

Over 46 Years of Excellence!

We are a family-run, premier auto repair service established in 1969 and located in Lakeland, Florida. We serve Polk County and surrounding areas. GUNDER’S is one of the biggest and most modern facilities in all of Polk County, yet we take pride in maintaining the personal touch.

We see each customer as an individual, and our highest commitment is not losing sight of the fact that our customers are our neighbors. Unlike many auto repair centers, we maintain a warm and personal atmosphere. The owners, Travis and Jodi Gunder, insist on meeting and personally greeting each person.

Altogether our staff has 250 years of combined experience!
The hundreds of customers walking through GUNDER’S doors every month mean we make customers for life. And that’s the way we like it!

The History of GUNDER’S Auto Center

Back in 1969, we put a man on the moon, a Rubella vaccine was developed, and GUNDER’S opened its doors with two service bays and two people.

GUNDER’S started with collision services and quickly expanded to mechanical repair. We have always had a love for automobiles, and that has never diminished over time. We have passion for our work!

Today, we have 25 staff members who have become family and 36 bays on 15 acres of land.

This kind of growth doesn’t happen by accident. For all those intervening years, we provided top-notch service, fair pricing, and state-of-the-art equipment – plus a warm, welcoming handshake. And you have responded favorably.

GUNDER’S is Community Conscious

We are all living in one of the best communities in the country. GUNDER’S is glad to be a part of it, and we are glad you are all here. Please feel free to come by and experience the next level of auto service and repair.
