Sometimes you have to face the facts. The Phoenix Suns are at least 3 years away from being in playoff contention. While their next draft pick will help an otherwise already young team, they need to continue to play and grow together to be successful.
So where are we going with this? To be sure, there isn’t a clear-cut connection between The Auto Shop and the Golden State Warriors, arguably the most dominant NBA team in at least recent memory.
But, what we have in common is something that not many other auto repair shops in Phoenix can boast.
First, our management has several decades’ worth of success and experience in our respective industries. It’s true! If you’ve ever called the shop for a competitive auto repair or maintenance quote, you won’t find a more knowledgeable (or friendly) shop manager than Mickey – exactly like Steve Kerr. (Who also has an Arizona connection via playing for U of A’s men’s team, while also being drafted by the Suns.)
We’re surrounded by talent.
While our ASE-certified mechanics are incredibly talented and resourceful, any auto repair shop (or NBA team) is only as good as its supporting acts. From our friendly shuttle drivers who take you to and from your home or work to our auto detailing experts, you can rest assured that you’re getting the very best treatment while your car is being cared for.
There’s also a lot of history in where we call home.
Sure, the Warriors play at Oracle Arena in Oakland, which one day will likely fly championship banners for a number of years to come, but the actual ‘Shop’ in “The Auto Shop” is an incredibly modern facility that has just about any tool or device that we need, from an oil change on up to anything far more complicated.
To quote the Warriors’ Kevin Durant during his MVP acceptance speech from a few years back, at The Auto Shop we treat you like “the real MVP” any time you come by to get your car fixed with us!
