About Us

The Motor Works

The Motor Works was founded in 1974 by Rick Banasik. For many years Rick was the technician, parts man, and service and office managers. Since moving to our new facility in 1986, Rick has given up a few of those responsibilities but is still actively involved in the daily operations, helping with estimates, customer service, and technology issues.

Thanks for looking at our website.  I hope you'll find the information you're looking for.  If there's something you can't find here, send me an email and you might see that info in the near future.  We've been in business a long time and learned a lot along the way.  And perhaps the most important thing we've learned is that our customers are looking for a trusted provider who will keep their vehicle safe and reliable, at a reasonable price, while making the whole process fair, straightforward and convenient.  

The Motor Works is locallly owned and operated and has but one location.  This is important because it allows me to be involved in every aspect of the business.  Owner involvement is key to customer satisfaction.  But auto repair requires a team of dedicated people, and that we have.  You want to do business with people who will respect you and your time, will properly repair your vehicle at a fair price, and who will take the hassle out of the process.  We can do that!  We've been in business for over forty years and have learned not only how to fix cars, but also how to take car of our customers.  We'll co-ordinate with your busy schedule and provide a free loaner car if you need one.  And we'll help prioritize and offer you repair options until you're confident that you've made a smart, informed decision about needed repairs or service.  Only then we will start working on your car so that we can get it back to you in a timely manner.  

And in closing let me say that we're large enough to provide all the services and technology you need yet small enough to remember that you make payday possible.  And know that when you deal with us we will never sacrifice the trust of our customers for a short-term gain.  

                                       Thanks for hanging in there.  Rick Banasik  President and General Manager
