Rod Schindler, Rod’s Japanese Auto Care

I’ve been in ATI for 7 years now. The only regret I have is not joining ATI sooner… Before ATI we were doing $360k year. The first year after joining ATI we went to $704k and now we are OVER $1.6 Mil with the same amount of technicians and staff. ATI has the best coaching and support for Auto Repair Coaching and Auto Body Shop Coaching.

Chris Pendl, Family Automotive Service Center

Very happy that I joined ATI-have made leaps and bounds improvements in the one year since I signed up. My coach is… always there with help, solutions, and great ideas that have really improved my business… If anyone is reading this that is on the fence and worried about the commitment or money only thing I can say is it’s worth it and I even sent an email that I wished I signed up sooner!
