Keeping my customers happy and knowledgeable about the repairs/maintenance that has been done or will need to be done.

7. How do you like running CT&G Auto?

I love running this shop.  Every day I learn more and more.  It’s definitely the biggest learning curve that I have hit in my career as a mechanic so far.

8. If you could change one thing about your businesses day-to-day routine, what would it be?

I would like to be able to hire a full time service manager to help take over some of the paper work.

9. Any new specials you can tell your customers about?

We have a $25+tax oil change available for most vehicles (synthetic or specialty oils are extra, filter is included in the price) which includes a 30 point inspection available all year around.

We are also having a draw at Ribfest for a free induction service.  An induction service helps to clean out your engine’s intake and help restore power and fuel economy.

10. If you had a chance to say one thing to a brand new customer, before they walk in the door, what would it be?

Please don’t hesitate to ask as many questions as you would like.  We are here to serve you, and keep you on the road safely.
