About Us

auto schneider gmbh in Timmendorfer Strand: Your partner by the Baltic.

Excellent service, competent advice and premium quality.

That is what auto schneider stands for like no other garage in the region of Timmendorfer Strand – for more than five decades.

Automobile passion.

A lot has changed since mechanic Helmut Schneider rented a small garage in 1963 in Timmendorf “An der Waldkapelle 2”. What hasn’t changed in all those years is our passion for cars and the aspiration to offer our customers excellent service and premium quality.

Through the ages.

Throughout our long history, we experienced the birth of modern safety features like seatbelts or airbags, for example, and we understood the growing conscience for the environment by our customers and standardised working with computer-driven diagnostics systems.

Courage for new paths.

The success of auto schneider is based on the courage to go along unusual paths and maintaining traditions. Our big wheel hotel, for example, is a symbol of our passion for innovation and development.

Excellent quality.

Our commitment and consistent focus on the wishes of our customers have paid off. The company auto schneider gmbh is among the top 10 in the North region in the area of service and among the top 100 Volkswagen dealerships in customer satisfaction. This success shows us that we are on the right track and spurs us on for the future.

Our awards.

Various awards from Volkswagen AG for outstanding customer satisfaction in sales and service as well as for workshop services. Our team will continue to do everything in its power to offer our customers top service with that little bit extra.
