I know you said west, I take all my cars to mechanic and body shops to the Auto mall area in Henderson, there was a wonderful mechanic specialized in Lexus with 60% of stealership prices, but moved away to east of 95.

This is the kind of stuff I am finding. 1700 a month for a good size spot.

So here's a good explanation of why I want a shop instead of being a mobile mechanic.

I live in the blue circle. I had a repeat customer break down in the red circle.
He said his belt shredded off. So I picked up a new belt and only brought basic tools instead of the whole kit.
I get there and the belt came off because the fan pulley bearing assembly flew apart.
I needed more tools so I drove to the nearest parts store, in purple, and picked up the tools. Meanwhile the part was on east Sahara near the blue circle. They managed to get it delivered to the parts store in the green circle. The customer went and picked up the part while I was pulling everything apart.
They get the new part which doesn't include everything. So I needed to use old stuff off the old part which means another trip to purple to get specialty tools. These are tools I didn't have previously because I don't normally work on diesels.


So a 1 hour job turned into a 7 hour job. And the awesome part is it was extremely windy, raining, and also snow hailing.

If I was already into the shop I would have contacted my tow truck buddy and had the truck towed to my shop, had my commercial supplier bring the part, worked on it int he dry warm shop with adequate lighting, and while waiting for parts i could have been doing something more productive.
