Go Local: The Benefits of Using Local Car Repair Shops
Call us bias, but we think local car repair shops are some of the best for auto and tire repairs. The reasons why might not be what you’d think.
It’s not because we work here every day. It’s because we have first hand experience behind-the-scenes and know what goes into each job we complete. We know the heart and soul that’s put into fixing every car that drives into our bays. As fellow consumers, we also know how important that is in any type of shop you visit.
If you’re searching for car repair shops in Rita Ranch or Vail and aren’t sure who to choose, here are a few reasons why you might want to consider going local.
1. You’re likely to run into us around town.
The owners and employees of local shops are your friends and neighbors. Chances are you’ll run into someone you recognize from the shop while grocery shopping at Fry’s, eating at Chuy’s, or picking up gardening supplies at Ace Hardware. That might not seem like a big deal, but it is.
Like most locally owned businesses, we value this close connection with the community. Running into our customers brings a smile to our face. We see first-hand how our hard work helps your family make it safely to practice with The Vail Vikings or to school at Andrada Polytechnic High School. It builds character in our small town.
2. We give back to local organizations.
Rita Ranch Automotive & Tire believes strongly in giving back to our community. That’s why we’ve sponsored events, such as:
- The local golf tournament for IMPACT of Southern Arizona
- The Greater Vail Area Chamber of Commerce golf tournament that raises scholarship money for Vail students.
- Relay for Life being held at Empire High School that benefits people affected by cancer in Vail, Rita Ranch, and Tucson.
It’s through this local involvement that we strive to give back to our neighbors and help those in our community.
3. Our dollars stay in Rita Ranch and Vail.
Unlike national corporations and chain stores, local shops are better able to keep more money in the community. We hire people in the community. We spend our money in the community. We’re able to recycle a large chunk of our revenue back into the local economy by partnering with other local businesses. Through our personal and professional spending, we give back to the local economy.
When it comes to car care and maintenance, you have a lot of choices. Next time you’re considering which service provider to use, let us encourage you to go local.
