Thanks guys im extending a 10 percent discount to anyone that comes from Chicago garage.
I am fair with prices just because we are a high end shop things will be different here.
I treat everyone the same hands down. If your on a budget just because a lambo rolls in the shop doesn't mean you won't get a price that meets your needs.
Thanks guys I've been around Chicago installing since 1998.
I plan on being loyal to this community.

Glad to see you have a shop now Matt.

Someone needs to help you with the flyers, writing, etc. That flyer's quality is lackluster and has a lot of needless information on it such as you putting cars on trickle charge and moving them around every 24 hours...

A. that's info that you wouldn't put on an intro flyer.

B. I wouldn't take my car somewhere that did that. There's something unsettling about having my car detailed and knowing it's going to be moved around a bunch. Even if that's what detailers typically do, I don't want to know about it and it certainly wouldn't be a selling point.

Look at one thing successful car startups have in common and it's generally a solid brand with a nice logo, great ad copy, etc.

I know you're tops because I've known you for what... like 8 years? Every one else that's dealt with you seems to love you too. Go out and find someone that does graphic art and pay them in details & remote starters. It will be worth the money spent...

Unsolicited advise, I know but like I said, I've known for however long and I've never seen you get past the word of mouth stage of business. I'd love to see this succeed. You deserve it.

I did not design this flyer it was merely put together by someone without experience.
As far as word of mouth business thats mostly what i prefer it allows me to have a solid relationship with my clients.

We are having all those issues addressed by professionals with a new website and new flyers for future events coming out. I had to go with this on short notice not my idea.

We have had a great response from the description of our car storing services because most of the people that have asked about that service have been very high end clients who wouldnt usually take care of their own car anways i.e. lambo and ferrari owners. To them that is a valuable service which we will provide. I dont like someone moving my car around either unless it was in a facility like we have its a mulit million dollar facility.

Regardless of the large connections with these high end clients you guys are my backbone. I value your ideas and comments and dually noted mike. Thanks for all your advice you provide how is your biz doing i havent talked to you in a while?

We have a solid brand and a new logo that will be out. So if you come out to our event you will see what we are all about.

Again RAffle for prizes food nice cars what else could you ask for :-) lol

The nice thing about this venture is i am totally backed we have people being paid to get this up and running.

We aim to be the next big thing in the midwest and with the help of my community i will get there but only with you guys can i do so.


If you guys or anyone who reads this come out support and have a good time. We will have car meets held here it will just be a nice place to hang with your nice car and see other nice cars.

p.s. dan you remote start is still in my hands.

Matt is a good guy and has done my remote start, my sister's, and my bro's. Can't make it to the opening, but you should definitely do an open house in the spring.
