Honest work ethics equals happier customers, I want to thank all my customers for the business they bring to me, And send to me by word of mouth advertising,


Iv been self employed since 1990, Iv been in the auto repair business since 1976 working with my dad, Even earlier than that in many circumstances, Many of those years I had hired help and plenty of business to go around, Times have changed and so have I, I had to realize that hired help was a very expensive luxury when the lack of business didn't support the income to pay them and myself, So it became time to get my own hands dirty once again, Becoming a one man band, Working smart and not too hard, Answering the phone, scheduling the work, Doing the work, And paying the bills, Overall its working out great these past 3 years, Keeping my mind and body active, And still have plenty of time to rest, The worst part is how my skin is getting thin, And small bumps or pokes break my skin and bleed , Feeling my age for the first time in many years after a life time of youthful stamina and good health, I'm still healthy as far as I know, I don't take any meds, And my back can still lift things I need to pick up, And my eyes can still see well enough with the proper lighting, Fingers crossed for a long happy life from this day forward, Until, THE END,


HOYT AUTO has been a locally owned and Family owned Independence Mo auto repair business since 1948, started by my Father, Moroni Hoyt ! Along with auto repair we also repair Lawn Mowers ! Repair and service and don't forget New Tires too! THINK HOYT AUTO FIRST! Thank You! Jeff Hoyt, Owner and operator,


CALL HOYT AUTO FIRST! For your service and repair needs! NEW TIRES TOO! Thank you Jeff Hoyt,


A customer asked me how much it cost to do this job....
I answered him: $ 1500
He said: So expensive for this job?
I asked: How much do you think it would cost you?
He answers me: $ 800 maximum... That's a pretty simple job right? !"
- For $ 800 I invite you to do it yourself.
- But.... I don't know how to.
- For $800 I'll teach you how to. So besides saving you $700, you'll get the knowledge for the next time you want
- It seemed right to him and he agreed.
- But to get started: you need tools: A welder, grinder, chop saw, drill press, welding hood, gloves etc...
- But I don't have all these equipment and I can't buy all of these for one job.
- Well then for another $300 more I'll rent my stuff to you so you can do it.
- Okay, he says.
- Okay! Tuesday I'm waiting for you to start doing this work
- But I can't on Tuesday I only have time today.
- I'm sorry, but I'm only available Tuesday to teach you and lend you my stuff. Other days are busy with other customers.
- Okay! That means I'm going to have to sacrifice my Tuesday, give up my tasks.
- I forgot. To do your job yourself, you also have to pay for the nonproductive factors.
- That is? What is this?"
- Bureaucratic, tax, vat, security, insurance, fuel etc.
- Oh no!... But to accomplish these tasks, I'm going to spend more money and waste a lot of time!
- Do you have them? You can do it to me before?"
- Okay!
- I'll make you all the material you need. Truck loading is done Monday evening or Tuesday morning you'll have to come by 6 loading the truck. Don't forget to be on time to avoid traffic jams and be on time
- At 6??? Nope! Too early for me! I used to getting up later.
- You know, I've been thinking. Y ' all better get the job done. I'd rather pay you the $1500. If I had to, it wouldn't be perfect and it would cost me a lot more.

When you pay for a job, especially handcrafted, you pay not only for the material used, but also:
- Knowledge
- Experience
- Study
- Tools
- Services
- Time to go
- punctuality
- Accountability
- Professionalism
- Accuracy
- Guaranteed
- Patents
- Sacrifices
- Safety and security
- Payment of tax obligations

No one can denigrate other people's work by judging prices.
Only by knowing all the elements necessary for the production of a certain work can you estimate the actual cost.

I did not write this dialogue, but am sharing it to support craftsmen and entrepreneurs.

We tend to hang on to the things we were taught growing up, Or we decide to reject it as well, My Dad was always on the band wagon to warn people about the last days, Biblically speaking, And Patriotically speaking too, He passed out more literature at Hoyts Garage than he worked on cars, But of course he was on 24 hour call concerning his work as well, He was always on the job, There wasn't very much that could stop this man, I listened to what he said as he spoke to his customers, Telling them about the phycological warfare we were being subjected too in order to weaken this country, How God would be removed from schools and the public eye in a fashion that made the whole thing seem like poppycock fairy tails of unimportance , How the purity of truth would get diluted, And how it wouldn't happen over night, He would tell the story of how a frog would jump out of a pot of boiling water if you tossing it into the pot, And wouldn't be injured, But if you place a frog in a pot that's comfortable and heat the water little by little, The frog will never jump, It will stay in the pot until the temp gets hot enough and the frog gets cooked, The human mind works in this in this fashion too, So today I see people that have jumped from the pot, And the people that are warming up unaware, The bottom line here is about saving your soul, While putting up a good fight, But in the end Gods plan will win out, And we want to be a part of Gods plan, And not be a luke warm soul to be spewed out,


My work phone has been down all day, Comcast came out and fixed it, Sorry if you couldn't get through! I couldn't call out either,


I get up early sipping my coffee, Getting in gear cause life's been slothy, the pains in my feet, arms hands and back, tell me iv been working, or fell flat on my back, taking as big a bite that I can chew, to improve my life, and to help yours too, can life slow down so that things are seen clear? To give some loyalty success is near, Or one more casualty ruined by fear, wishing someone well with out making sure, is drilling holes in a boat, and refusing to help bail, we all become part of what works and what does not, saving a dollar to feed a millionaire, while your next door neighbor is buying used underwear, Mom and Pops are the shops that are needed, it is the American way, that people die for every day, Support your local small Business ! HOYT AUTO! Thank you very much!

I lose a percentage of work being honest about repairs, I have people come in for service on their cars because a dealer or another shop tells them they are in need for brakes or something, And then I tell them they have a long way to go before this service is needed, I do gain customers because of my honesty, Yet then again the loyalty of a customer can be as diverse as any human could be, It wont change how I do business, You are either in need of the repair or you are not, And its my job to be honest with my professional opinion,


Welcome 2020! Let HOYT AUTO service and repair your car this year! New Tires TOO!


Skipping rocks, Climbing trees, Riding bikes, Feeling the breeze, Regular times to eat and check in, My life as a child, Is where it begins, Neighborhoods were jungles, Cutting through yards, Knowing where every fence was or wall that had to be scaled, Every short cut, Was mapped in my mind, The side walks beneath me were so full of cracks, knowing each one like the hairs on my hand, Cowboys and Indians, Playing Army throwing rocks, They were the rockets and bombs we used for attacks, Learning to Swim at the YMCA on Noland rd to be exact, Taking each class that started at Minnow, up the food chain of classes until you reached Dolphin and Shark! Yeah swimming was king back when I was young, On to the roller rink, Skating each week, Skating the late skate for sure, growing my hair, learning how to flirt with my smiles and winks, Wondering what it took to be a real man, But loved being young and running around, No responsibility to hold in my hands, Yes to be 16 years old was feeling pretty grand, Memories fading in the glorious color watching Dark Shadows on a Black and White TV, Then all of a sudden people start dying, And enough time has past you start working full time hours, 10 years go by, and then another, In the long and short of it all, Wanting to stay in the middle, Finally reaching an age you never dreamed of reaching, Yes time is deceiving, And memories are pure gold,


Good morning says HOYT AUTO, give me a call, we will get it done!

Thank you for hooking me up with brakes for my truck.
Thanks for fixing my brakes. I can stop now.
Went to several place before Hoyt and they told me they could not figure out what was wrong with my vehicle. Then took it to Hoyt and a gentleman named Jeff fix the problem after 1 day. Great place great price definitely would recommend Hoyt Auto.
Went to Hoyt Auto today for exhaust repair and new tires. Jeff Hoyt did an awesome job. I was very pleased with his work. Bring your cars to Hoyt Auto where you will find an honest and hardworking mechanic.
I have taken my car to Hoyts auto on 3 different occasions. Each time has been an absolute pleasure. Jeff is a unicorn in this day n age. An honest mechanic that will treat you right and fix what is wrong without any BS. If you are not using Hoyts Auto you're missing out.
Mike and I just found out today that his daughter is having a birthday party Saturday night for her little girl and we are going to have to back out of the bon fire, I was really looking forward to coming to the party but don't feel we should miss his Grandaughters party. Thank you for the invite and I hope you have it next year.
My pony left on a stretcher....came home prancing like a show horse....thank you Jeff Hoyt
