All Makes and Models Auto Repair Shop Relocates to Larger Jackson Factory
JACKSON TWP. –Justin Smock said his auto repair shop on the west side of the township is growing to the point where a major move is needed, so he’s preparing to uproot to a larger, more visible location.
All Makes & Models Auto Repair – tucked away in Irish Square at 7993 Hills & Dales Road NW – intends to move into a new $ 700,000 home in late August or early September at 5257 Fulton Drive NW.
Smock’s new facility is built behind the old McDonald’s restaurant on Fulton Drive. His land spans 2.82 acres, which are adjacent to and just west of the Fishers Foods grocery store.
“We’ve grown over the years,” said Smock, who opened the auto repair business in 2015. “This (move) takes us from a three-bay store to eight-bay and will respond better to our load. of work. “
The auto shop has four full-time employees. Smock said he would add a fifth employee once the company reopens at its new location. Workshop workers perform repairs on 10 to 15 vehicles per day.
“It could increase by two more (workers) if we develop as planned,” Smock added. “It was also important to stay close to our customers (staying in Jackson).”
All Makes & Models offers maintenance and repair of foreign and domestic vehicles. Some services include tire sales, oil changes and wheel balancing, engine diagnostic checks, and brake and transmission repairs.
“We do pretty much everything except body work,” said Smock, a 2001 Washington high school graduate.
Construction on the approximately 6,600 square foot structure began in March, according to the Jackson Zoning Department. A mezzanine will be part of the new brick structure, said Assistant Zoning Inspector Pat Primack.
Including the purchase of the property and the new building, Smock said the price would total more than $ 1 million. He bought the land from Fishers Foods.
The contractor for the construction project is Scheetz Building Corp., which is based in Jackson.
