Auto Pros Visit Interstate Auto Care, Madison Heights, MI

Auto Pros Visit Interstate Auto Care, Madison Heights, MI

For Bill Nalu, his business is more than just fixing cars, it's about connecting with people on a personal level.

In this episode of Auto Pros On The Road, Joe Keene and Jacqui Van Ham visit Bill Nalu at Interstate Auto Care in Madison Heights, MI.

Nalu and his team of five skilled technicians at the Auto Value Certified Service Center pride themselves on what they call “aggressive hospitality.” Because to him, the business is about more than just fixing a car. Family-owned and operated, the shop began with an attitude of first being in the service business; second an auto repair facility. The primary focus has been, and continues to be, the ever-evolving needs and wants of every customer.

Interstate is built on strong relationships, both with customers and crew “Probably 80% of our customers, we know and they know us,” Nalu explains. “And I’m very proud of the crew that we’ve built over the years.”
