over the years, many of our friends (mostly female) have come to us for a second OPINION with their AUTOMOTIVE repairs. we find it truly amazing what some shops quote people to get their cars fixed, and not in a good way.

our decision to open our vehicle repair shop to the general public is to offer a “lower than normal labor rate” with fast efficient service.  We can do that BECAUSE our other business has always paid the overhead. All of our lifts, alignment rack, tools, equipment, diagnostic computers have been bought over a 34 year span from our first business.

We feel it is very important women feel comfortable getting their cars fixed and understand what’s going on with their car; we believe in full TRANSPARENCY- we include pictures and drawings if necessary.

  • Jaime started building transmissions on our taxis when she was 17 years old; then moving into general mechanics. Jaime has run the taxi fleet repair shop from 2007 to current day. Jaime teaches automotive basics classes in our shop and also has been invited to speak at local libraries and private ORGANIZATIONS to help individuals learn about their vehicles. Jaime is talking to the customers and ANSWERING the phones on a daily basis from open to close, ORDERING parts and scheduling in repairs. She keeps all the techs on track with the tasks of the day.

  • Naomi has always been on the "it technical" part of the business along with all the paperwork. she brings the technology to the businesses and cuts the paychecks and pays the taxes. Naomi helps with phone calls and also greets customers. Naomi also heads dispatch for the taxis.

Together we make a great team in order to give our customers the best experience.
