Hello from Tyler, TX

Recommended Posts

Hello all, my name is Matt. As of July 1st, 2013, I opened the doors on an automotive shop specializing in Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the Tyler, TX area. So far, I am the only employee. Before opening my own business, I worked for a Lexus dealership in the D/FW area.

Welcome on the new business. Most of us shop owners now started the same way. Don't hesitate to ask questions. I started working at a Honda dealership and then started my own business. Had to quickly branch out from just Honda/Acura but it was worth the move.

Hello Matt, welcome to the forum. As an Ex Factory Master ASE Tech I totally get what your doing. Moving out of the DFW area into Tyler is a smart move IMO.

 

I totally agree with CARMandP , it will be essential to branch outside of just 1 Make for repair. Give us a call we would be more than happy to help you in the Diagnostic arena. For us offering solutions and aggressively good tech support is what we are all about, the Tools we recommend are always based off your needs to make your shop the best it can be.

 

Good luck to you and don't hesitate to ask as many questions as you can. There is a massive amount of knowledable business owners here that won't lead you wrong.

 

Thanks

Thanks OEScan. I'm definitely glad I made the move. I've thought about branching out to other brands, but my business is still growing as I stay strictly with Toyota/Lexus/Scion. Doing so has allowed me to use the factory scan tool, which means I do everything the dealer does (including cutting and programming keys), minus navigation updates (Toyota has restricted it to dealer only... And most people just use their phones anyway). Part of me being exclusive to T/L/S is what has convinced many folks to try me out and why most stay with me. I don't mis-diagnose cars, I have all the special tools, I have connections for parts (almost always overnighted to me), factory repair manuals, and Lexus loaner cars. The only way I would ever branch out to another brand is if I can replicate what I'm doing now.

Hello and welcome,

I agree on focusing on certain makes. One can also let dealers and other shops that you are the go to shop for those makes. I focused on Jeeps, Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth for 26 years and made a good living.
