It’s a familiar story: you’re driving to work and your brake lights come on, a funny rattling noise is coming from somewhere in the car, and inspection time is right around the corner. Time to shell out some cash and find somewhere to tune-up.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that you’re not bound to the dealership where you bought the car. There are plenty of more affordable options, but Plaistow’s All Tune and Lube just may be the best one.
Owner Joe Steed knows car maintenance, and he understands convenience and customer service.
“We have all the same services as a dealer at a fraction of the cost, mostly because of the lower overhead. There is never an uncomfortable sales pitch or pressure to buy now. We try to educate our customers and leave the decision making up to them. We are a family-owned franchise, and we treat each customer as we would want our own family to be treated, with respect, honesty, and quality work at a reasonable price.”
Steed is a graduate of Southern New Hampshire University, with a degree in Business Management. His enjoyment of tinkering with cars at a young age and a work history dealing with autos is reflected in his successful business, but he started out in management in the plastics industry.
“Both plastics manufacturers I worked for shut down and I decided to go into business for myself. I tried to think of recession proof industries and car repair seemed like a pretty good choice.”
It was a good choice, as proof of All Tune’s excellent service can be found in the many testimonials by appreciative customers online. People from all over New Hampshire, and even Massachusetts, drive up to Plaistow for the service and competitive prices Steed offers. He believes it’s his staff that is to be credited.
