What Tampa Automotive Service Consumers Should Know

September 9, 2018

There are some things drivers should know about Tampa car service and repair. First and foremost, Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave) cares about you and your family's safety. And we really appreciate your business. Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave) in Tampa wants to build a trusting relationship that becomes the foundation for a mutually beneficial experience for years to come.

Building on that foundation, there are some things that would help you understand the auto service and repair business better. First, it can be really hard to fix vehicles. The days of shade tree mechanics are long gone. The majority of automotive systems are computerized. It takes a lot of training and very expensive equipment to diagnose and repair modern vehicles. The pros who work for Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave) need extensive computer training – not just how to run the diagnostic systems, but also searching for the right parts, networking with other technicians to help them with a difficult problem and pulling together a job order that makes sure that each step of the process is addressed.

The threshold for getting started as a technician gets higher all the time in FL, and there is a huge commitment to on-going training every year. This training takes time and money. It contributes to business overhead. Average consumers in Tampa may not realize the business and environmental regulations Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave) must comply with. Of course that costs money, too. Like any FL business, overhead is a big factor.

When you go into your favorite Tampa area restaurant, you don't value the meal by what the food would cost at the grocery store. The restaurant has rent, wages, insurance, taxes, utilities, professional fees, equipment, supplies – you get the picture. The restaurant has to charge enough to not only pay for the ingredients, but for all these other things as well while making enough profit to remain in business. If you value the meal and are satisfied with your dining experience, you'll come back and tell your friends.

It's the same for Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave). The value of its service is not the cost of the parts they replace, but in your satisfaction with the results. If they deliver a good product at a fair price, customers are happy to see them succeed as a FL automotive business.

At Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Tampa (East Fletcher Ave), we love to see our Tampa customers whenever they come in, but we would much rather see them three or four times a year for routine maintenance than once a year on a tow truck. We want to work together with you to avoid breakdowns. Tell your friends and family to come in for their scheduled maintenance too. That lowers our marketing costs and helps keep labor rates down. That's good for everyone in Tampa.
