In 1999, David decided to take a calculated risk and strike out on his own, when he opened our first location near the corner of Shallowford and Trickum Roads, in East Cobb. After only two short years, and thanks to the support from our loyal customers, we grew out of our first shop and moved to a new, larger facility. Three short years after that, we found it necessary to find an even larger place, which is where we are located today.
Over the years, we have acquired more and more of the finest and most sophisticated diagnostic equipment, which enables us to offer our customers faster and more accurate repairs. Our growth has been extremely satisfying to us all, as we currently enjoy a returning customer rate in excess of 97%. We are ever grateful to you, our customer, who have been so essential to our success.
Our mission statement is simple. We strive to offer you, our customer, the best possible service and honest repairs at the lowest price available anywhere in the metropolitan area. Moreover, we GUARANTEE your satisfaction to the very best of our ability. We want you as a customer now and long into the future.
MEET OUR STAFF BELOW:
Our general manager and principal service adviser, Curtis has seventeen years experience and is an ASE certified automotive technician and diesel mechanic. While his primary duties require him to man the front desk and write service orders, Curtis is particularly adept at identifying problems, which might require greater amounts of time by other people. We believe that this ability helps us to locate and repair problems quickly and properly. But, most importantly, it saves our customers diagnostic time, which can otherwise be costly. Curtis lives in Woodstock with his wife and three children. He enjoys four-wheeling and a variety of shooting sports.
Our resident veteran is James, who, we are proud to say, spent four years in the United States Marine Corps. He has eight years of valuable automotive experience and lives in Woodstock with his wife and three daughters. In his free time, he enjoys reading and fishing.
David Tribble was practically born into the automotive repair business. His father, Charlie, spent his entire career, encompassing more than fifty years, in and around the automotive and oil businesses. As a matter of fact, throughout David's youth, his dad and his mom, Doris, owned and operated service stations located in northern Alabama.
In 1999, David decided to open Tribble's Automotive and built his first shop near the corner of Trickum and Shallowford Roads, in Marietta. Since that time, our business has grown so rapidly that we have moved twice and may find it necessary to do so within the near future.
David's business philosophy is very simple: give the people the best possible service, an honest deal and a fair price and they'll keep coming back continuously. This has proven to be true, as we have a customer return rate in excess of 97%! David has been an ASE certified Master Technician and has in excess of thirty years, hands-on experience at the dealer and technical levels.
Accounting and Customer Service One of the truly unheralded members of our staff is David's wife, Teresa. With both feet firmly planted on the ground at all times, she keeps things running smoothly, when everyone else is busy.
Teresa handles the majority of general customer service responsibilities, including scheduling, as well as all of our accounting duties. She has an outstanding background in customer service, having served in similar capacities with Kroger for over twenty-four years.
The newest addition to our staff is David and Teresa's son, Michael, who has just begun learning the family business. Michael handles the responsibilities of shop steward, in which he performs a large and varied number of responsibilities. He enjoys working out and hanging with friends on his off time.
Although Karman has been around the business as long as most of the "Techs" she is not certified. But that's not why we don't let her work on cars. It's because she is only 7" tall, And she hates it when she chips a nail ! Her main job is to greet every customer and sleep on the mat in front of the door.
The newest addition to the mascot team, Diesel keeps Karman company when it comes to greeting the desk, greeting the customers and keeping the staff in all-around good spirits.
Hip has been in the Automotive business for 12 years as a technician, is from Vietnam, and enjoys watching football on his off time.
