New commercial is finally at The Wellborn Theater. Go watch it and stay for the movie while you are there!!!!
This statement seems to be confusing and gets me in trouble.
I am not saying that my shop is better and more honest than everyone else. I’m simply saying that there is no other shop better or more honest than mine!!!
When are people going to realize, NOTHING IS FREE
Why are people such suckers when it comes to advertising? I don’t charge for diagnosis if I fix your car and I don’t add a bunch of miscellaneous charges to increase the bill.
I tell you my cost over the phone, I tell you my hourly rate because I want to be upfront and honest. I can very easily lower my hourly rate and then add in all the B.S. to get the bill right back where it was.
People may think I’m too expensive and chose a shop that sounds cheaper but end up paying more!!! I AM THE BEST VALUE!!! PERIOD!!!
Quit falling for these scammers and ask for a total cost up front!!!
Where has all the loyalty gone? When are people going to realize you get what you pay for?
Had a “loyal” customer that I have given huge discounts over the years and even financed her repairs out of my own pocket, show up to the shop. She called last week and explained some of the issues she was having with her car. Without seeing her car I gave her some suggestions but I informed her they were merely suggestions and I would need to look at the car to be certain of the issue. So, she took it too a cheap discount shop that has zero mechanical knowledge and no certified mechanics. But hey, they were cheap!!!
Well, she shows up after waisting over $1600 and this “shop.”
Here is where it gets funny. “Hey, since I’ve been such a loyal customer, can you diagnosis my car for free?” I tell her yes, but if she does not let us do the repairs she will have to pay us for our time.
“That’s not fair, you’ve looked at my car for free for the past 10 years and never charged me!!!” I then informed her that I did not know I was diagnosing her car for free so she could have some uneducated hack use MY knowledge and get paid to fix HER car.
It’s getting to the slow time of the year in the auto repair industry. This year, we are not vacationing which means we are open and ready for more work.
We are offering a 20% DISCOUNT on all repairs, except oil changes and state inspections.
Our FREE FOREVER WARRANTY will apply if your vehicle meets the eligibility requirements. See THE SHOP for details.
Hey guys, it’s official. I’m a Facebook celebrity. First and foremost I’d like to thank GOD. Special thanks to my mom for birthing me, it would have been really tough to do this without her. I’d like to thank my homies in LA (Lower Alvin). Anyway....
Seriously, I want to thank all my customers from the bottom of my heart. This has been the best 15 years!!!! You guys are awesome and I am so grateful and humble that you allow me to serve you and your families.
This is the second video we made advertising the FREE Forever Warranty.
It’s finally here. The FREE Forever Warranty. Here are a couple of the commercials we are about to release.
This is what happens when you mention that you CAN repair motorcycles but you just don’t have time. “No problem, I’ll just drop it off and you can fix it when you get some time.” Lol

Remember guys, always ask for a final job price instead of an hourly rate. Don’t get fooled by a cheap phone quote only to be surprised by the bill.
If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one. What started as an exhaust noise, revealed much more! Always bring your vehicle to an experienced shop the first time, and it will save you a headache and some cash in the long run.
Here is the first run on the Forever Warranty flyer. Any recommendations? This is both the front and the back.
I sign the papers for the FOREVER WARRANTY @ THE SHOP tomorrow. It’s simple; if I replace a part on your car it’s warrantied forever.
They only have 2 requirements:
1. I must perform the factory suggested maintenance.
2. I must see your vehicle once a quarter for a free inspection to verify all systems are operating properly. FREE OF CHARGE!!!!
Only things excluded are complete engines, transmissions, and brake pads. They will have a 3 YEAR / UNLIMITED MILE WARRANTY!!!!

Ok, The Shop is all caught up with flood vehicles. Thank you for the patience and understanding. We are now ready to resume our normal schedule. If you are one of our regular customers, welcome back.

If you are new to us, we will extend this discount to you on your first visit to get you HOOKED!!!
Just had the coolest Adjuster from Ussa insurance leave my shop. He told the customer that they were not allowing any buy back backs from this event. (State Farm and others have allowed some of my customers to buy their vehicle back.) Anyway, I explained that the customer was going to loose over 10k in the process. He told me to remove anything I think the customer might want back. I said anything, and he said ANYTHING, just keep it in a condition for transport.
So... it doesn't hurt to act the Adjuster if you can remove/swap parts.
Jeep guys be like, "Yes Sir, Mr Adjuster Sir, those ARE the wheels that were on my jeep when it flooded!!!"
The Shop has decided to clear our calendar for the next month to try to help those needing to get their cars back on the road after Harvey. We have contacted all of our scheduled customers that had minor repairs or routine maintenance scheduled for this month and half of the next. All, yes ALL, of our customers were more than happy to reschedule to allow room for others with greater needs.
*If you do not already know us, we are not the cheapest, but we are the best. Included in all our repairs is a one year/UNLIMITED MILE warranty. We are veteran owned and operated and very proud of the reputation we have established serving the Alvin area these past 15 years. We are so confident in our work, we give out our personal numbers.
Feel free to contact Anthony or Kris @281-756-9500.
Ok guys, we are open but with a limited staff. Please be patient.
If you recently got gas and your car runs poorly, or not at all, it might be the fuel. Here is a fuel sample we just took from a customers car.
I was just informed by my customer that his insurance company totaled his car even though he only got 1" of water in it and he asked my opinion. If your insurance company has decided to total your vehicle and you would like to keep it because the damage was not too bad or for any other reason, you are aloud to buy it back. Ex. Car valued at $7500. They might value it at $500 now. They will give you a check for $7000 and you keep the car and you are responsible for getting it fixed. Good luck and God Bless!!!
Help!!!! I'm looking for 2 new members to my Alvin team. I need one helper and certified mechanic. Please message me for details and as always, feel free to share. Thank you in advance.
The Shop is looking for a mechanic again. We are too busy to keep up. Please message me. Feel free to share!!!! Thank you in advance.

I just reviewed a bill from a competitor that charges $20 per hour less than me, yet the total was more than what mine is for the same job. Also, I noticed he advertised a one year warranty. However, his warranty was for parts only, he expected you to pay again for labor. My warranty is simple: FREE= 12 months/12,000 miles. Drop it off, get it fixed and pay absolutely nothing. I can offer this because I pay extra for my parts to buy a labor warranty. That means I charge my supplier, not you. Which also means, I don't try to not warranty it, I'm getting paid, just not by you. You can also buy an extended warranty from me for 2 or even 3 years for a small up charge.
We offer a Low Price Guarantee and will price match. HOWEVER, we must be comparing apples to apples.
If you call around to get the lowest phone price, just realize you are getting just that. A LOWEST PHONE PRICE!!! A price given to get you in the door. I can assure you the price will go up!!!
In summary, the amount a shop charges per hour is not the most important piece of information. How much you are going to spend when the job is repaired properly is.
FYI. The single sticker law is in full effect. If you need to get your vehicle registration renewed, you must have your vehicle inspected within 90 days of the day you try to renew. Also, please take the report the inspection station gives you. The state is supposed to have your report immediately after we shops complete the inspection. However, you know how great the state computers are. I have many customers come back to my shop to get a copy of it. Also, if you current registration is still valid, you do not need to get it inspected prior to renewal. If you have any questions, just message me. Thanks again and good luck.
It's happening again. People are getting pulled over at night by criminals posing as cops.
How can you tell if it's a real Police Officer.
Pull over to a well lit area and call 911 if you are not 100% certain. The operator will be able to confirm the legimitacy of the officer.
This is how I act when getting pulled over, regularly. Lol
Turn on hazards to let officer know I acknowledge him Reduce speed and find a safe and well lit area to stop.
I never stop near traffic out of respect for the officers safety as well as mine.
While pulling over, I roll all windows down.
Once stopped, I lay both arms on the window seal hanging them out the open window.
I leave them there until approached.
I answer his questions politely and let him know that I have my concealed carry license. I want to put him at ease so we both can feel safe. They are humans as well, with families they want to see after their shift.
When asked for drivers license and registration, I inform the officer that they are in my back pocket and then I ask permission to reach for them. After handing him what he requests, I put my hands back out the window and keep them there while he does his investigation.
NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO FIIDGET WITH ITEMS IN YOUR CAR!!!!!! Do not change radio, apply makeup, or search for something that fell in the never ending crack between the seats. SIT STILL and make him feel comfortable. When he returns, sign it. It does not matter what it says just SIGN IT! The side of the road is not the place to argue with an officer.
After he is finished with you, THANK HIM FOR SERVING HIS COUNTRY AND PROTECTING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. Then proceeded without excessive acceleration!!!! Lol
Ok, this might be for the mechanically inclined, but it's a good lesson. PLEASE, if you are not sure what you are doing, do not go to the Internet for advise. I too give it for free and MINE IS CORRECT!!!!
I believe in insurance. I believe in safety. I also believe that we should not spend $10,000 on a gun safe for a $50 dollar gun. However, I believe the amount of money spent on the pink "helmet" is directly proportional to what it's protecting. I think aluminum foil would have been a better investment.
