posted 27 January, 2023 by Justin Mitchiner

Our Technicians are the backbone of our company. Without them in the field performing over 3,000 services a day, Spiffy would not exist. Our founders, Scot Wingo and Karl Murphy, always visualized a business where people could excel and grow. That’s why we value our technicians’ development and prioritize extensive training programs and opportunities such as ASE certification and tuition reimbursement. Our commitment to training ensures that our technicians have the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their roles and advance in their careers while promoting cross-training and mentorship opportunities to develop their skills and expertise in different areas.

For technicians already ASE certified, we provide a challenging and rewarding environment to utilize their skills and knowledge fully. Our technicians are more than just employees. They are dedicated professionals who strive to provide exceptional service through continuous training and go above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction.

Detailing Artists

Our wash and detail technicians, also known as detailing artists, possess many skills beyond the surface level of washing and detailing vehicles. Our team of professional technicians must have a keen eye to spot even the slightest imperfections on a car's exterior or interior and perform treatments to leave that vehicle feeling new again.
The commitment to providing excellent training and support to our wash and detail technicians is critical in delivering high-quality customer service. To achieve this, we implemented a comprehensive training program that covers all aspects of paint correction and ceramic coating, including specialized tools and equipment, proper application techniques, and safety procedures. Investment in the continued education of technician training on the technical aspects of cleaning and restoring vehicles to a like new condition ensures they grow professionally and provide the 5-star level of service to customers that sets us apart as a leader in the industry.

“Everyday is a new experience.”

Oil Change

As the automotive industry continues to evolve and place a greater emphasis on sustainability, we must stay ahead of the curve by investing in the specialized skillsets of our technicians. By training on how to implement our eco-friendly oil change methods, we not only provide our customers with a service that meets our initiative of empowering future generations with a cleaner, greener Earth, but also position ourselves as a leader in the industry through skilled technicians.
Specialized training allows us to differentiate from competitors by offering technicians an opportunity to become experts in their field through continuous support, including servicing large-scale fleets and proper handling and disposal of hazardous materials to minimize environmental impact. Our training not only focuses on the technical aspects of servicing vehicles but also on customer service and communication skills, enabling technicians to provide a seamless premium experience while promoting eco-friendliness and sustainability.

“I like being a tech because it teaches self discipline and time management that I can apply into my life. Not just work.”
