Part one of a series explores why you should you pick a locally owned transmission repair shop rather than going to a national chain There are several good reasons, as this article series will demonstrate.
Transmission Repair: Keeping it Local Keeps More Money Here
When you do business with a locally owned business, where does the money go? Well, most of it stays in Arizona. A local business helps the local economy because its workers buy local services. In addition, local companies pay taxes into the state, and this helps to build infrastructure. And corporations may kid you that they’re important for the economy, they are not as vital as small businesses are. In fact 80% of all businesses in the US are small businesses. As a locally owned transmission repair shop in Mesa, we’re proud of our community.
Locally owned businesses like transmission shops also create more jobs and provide better wages and benefits than a lot chains do. Local places also require little in the way of infrastructure, and make more efficient use of public services such as roads and thoroughfares. However, there is another reason you want to keep it local.
The Environment and Your Transmission Repair Shop
You didn’t misread that. Local businesses are also better for the environment. Local stores help to reduce both air and water pollution. With less to haul than a big box auto repair shop, a locally owned transmission repair facility like ours doesn’t need big semi trucks nor do we have to pay higher fuel bills. All the parts we order don’t require mass quantities and as such, less freight charges and fuel bills.
So as you see, there are several good reasons to support your local business. And that includes a transmission repair shop in Mesa, AZ, like ours.
