Building the Gilbert Legacy

Our Team

Our History

In business in Okeechobee since 1924, the Gilbert Family of Companies is driven by dedication - dedication to our customers and our community. It is this dedication that has allowed us to serve Okeechobee for nearly 100 years.

Our first business in Okeechobee was an all-night fuel service station which opened in 1924. This business grew through the years and is now known as Gilbert Oil Company. We offer both wholesale and retail fuel sales, along with supplying a plethora of associated products. Stop in or contact us for all your fuel needs.

All the fuel you need, and a way to deliver it to you... Gilbert Has It.

Continuing to Grow

Building on the success of Gilbert Oil, Gilbert Chevrolet opened its doors in 1933 and brought with it the Gilbert Collision Center. Offering new and used Chevrolet vehicles, along with pre-owned vehicles of most makes and models, Gilbert Chevrolet can serve all your automotive buying needs. Our Service Department's 21-bay facility is ready to work on all makes and models. Purchase your vehicle somewhere else? No problem. We will still be here to help with all your service and warranty needs.

History and dedication to Okeechobee... Gilbert Has It.

The Story Doesn't End There...

You may know us as Gilbert Snapper or Gilbert Mower & Golf Cars; however, as our business and offerings have grown, a new name was in order. Gilbert Outdoors may be a relatively new name, but we still offer the same friendly service and great prices you have come to know in Okeechobee since 1950. Visit us for all your Hustler Lawn Equipment needs. We don't stop at lawn equipment. We are also here for all your E•Z•GO and Yamaha sales and service. In 2011, Gilbert Outdoors grew again when we added Gilbert LINE-X. LINE-X Protective Coatings, and Line-X Window Tint all of whom lead the industry for quality. Pair that with the high level of service offered from Gilbert and you have a winning combination.

All your outdoors needs... Gilbert Has It.
