The Benefits of Llumar Window Tint Film

The Benefits of Llumar Window Tint Film Tinted window films can make auto interiors cooler, which not only increases comfort but makes passengers and drivers happier.

It’s not a good look, to say the least, and can limit visibility as well as detract from the appearance of the car. A window-tinting business installing a product such as that that wouldn’t last very long. That’s why Greg Goodman has been loyal for decades to Llumar. “Llumar Window Films has been our only supplier of window tint for more than 20 years,” said Goodman, franchise owner of Alta Mere in Oklahoma City. “Their high quality standards make them a leader in our industry while offering our customers a lifetime warranty.

Turning an Automotive Business Into a Pop Up Grocery Store Two college seniors took over the workspace and created a grocery drive-through, called Pop Up Pantry, to help serve others in their community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

October is Fall Car Care Month

October is Fall Car Care Month As the calendar turns to October and the start of fall is upon us, now is a good reminder that October is Fall Car Care Month. October is a good time to assess the condition of your car and determine if it needs maintenance.  It has been through a long summer with continued exposure to the hot weather, and maybe a long trip or two mixed in.  Now is the time to take your car in for any work that may need to be done before the winter weather arrives.  It feels a long way off right now, but the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that two-thirds of the country will encounter a colder-than-normal season. So with that in mind, October’s a good time to get your car inspected at Milex Complete Auto Care or ... read more

Four Ways Co-Branding Can Grow Your Business

Four Ways Co-Branding Can Grow Your Business

Most business owners want to grow a business. The question is – how to grow it? After all, there are a lot of ways to grow a business in the wrong way. You can expand your business to the point that you’re spending more on the infrastructure or inventory than you’re receiving in revenue. You can spread yourself too thin, where your business is doing too many different things and none of them very well. There’s a reason the term growing pains is often thrown around. Growing can involve a fair amount of agony. That’s why we’re big fans of co-branding, the concept of having a business that has two or three or more brands under one roof. In other words, if you run a Milex Complete Auto Care, a full-service auto repair shop, you might also be the owner of a Mr. Transmission, which does transmission and clutch repair.

Battle the Darkness with Headlight Restoration

Battle the Darkness with Headlight Restoration

If you have glasses, you know how difficult it can be to see when you get them smudged. People wearing contacts may have some experience if they get something on their lenses. Your car can suffer a similar vision problem. Whenever you’ve driven in the darkness, perhaps you have found yourself flipping off your headlights quickly and then flipping them back on – because you suddenly weren't entirely sure your lights were even on.  Even if they were on, they may seem awfully dim.  If that has ever happened to you, your car may be a good candidate for headlight restoration. What is headlight restoration? Think of it as cleaning your glasses with spray and wipes.
