The new Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center is all about convenience, said Owen Lubenow, manager of the new facility that opened this week. The auto center is located next to R.M. Stoudt, Inc. and is owned by the Stoudt family.
The center opened for operation Nov. 15.
“Tires, brakes, oil changes and alignments,” he said. “All with no appointment necessary.”
Lubenow said the shop will include six bays and is designed to move people in and out as quickly and conveniently as possible.
“For most problems, people will be in and out in a half-hour,” said Mike Perleberg, assistant manager. “We’ll have wireless Internet and other convenience for people that want to stay and a convenience car for people that need a ride somewhere.”
Lubenow said the convenience of the Quick Lane extends to the businesses hours of operation. The shop will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
And while the convenience of no appointment and longer hours is important, the new shop is fully equipped to make the necessary repairs.
“State-of-the-art equipment and factory-trained technicians,” Lubenow said. “And we’ll work on all makes and models.”
The shop offers 13 brands of tires and will have in stock most sizes and popular brands. They even plan a black Friday tire sale for the day after Thanksgiving.
The shop will draw most of its staff from the current R.M. Stoudt garage. Shifting tasks like oil changes, tire rotations and mounting, brakes and alignments to the Quick Lane will free the shop space at Stoudt’s for larger repair jobs.
