It was about 1993 that the Auto Detectives
founder, Mark J.Allen, decided to hang up his
tools and become an inspector.
After almost 20 years as a master technician
in the automotive industry, it was time for a
change! And he found one common
theme whenever he visited a repair shop
during his inspections. Most of the
experienced mechanics, especially the older
ones, all approached him for information
regarding how to become an inspector.
But due to the way the industry is set up, and
the desirable nature of the job, it is very difficult
to become a successful automotive
inspector. Unfortunately, there
are a lot of master techs who are qualified to
inspect, but not enough work to go around. So
the industry has become very "cutthroat"
and many an ex-mechanic has gone bankrupt
trying to realize his dream of becoming an inspector!
The Auto Detectives are taking
applications now for franchise
opportunities during their national
expansion program. Protected
territories, marketing, and training are just
some of the benefits available to Auto
Detectives Master Inspectors!
