Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
Tire Tech & Auto Repair Centers specializes in rubber treads, typically stocking between 2,500 and 3,000 tires styles at a time from makers such as Firestone, Bridgestone, and Michelin. The massive inventory stems from a company policy of working completely in-house rather than outsourcing any of its parts or services. This logic also explains the versatility of the company’s technicians, each of whom boast ASE certification and at least 10 years of experience in the auto industry. They draw on these credentials to perform maintenance and repairs, which range from diagnosing engine troubles to preventing air conditioners from spitting snow.
