Two quality auto repair shops that are a part of the NARPRO network were honored with a Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Central, Northern and Western Arizona 2009 Ethics Award last night at ceremonies at the Arizona Biltmore.

Nadine Grobmeier, owner of Airpark Auto Service and Howard Fleischmann, owner of Community Tire and Auto Service Specialists were winners in their categories. Both owners go above and beyond to provide the most ethical, quality service to their customers, while also staying very involved in local community events and causes.

What is a Business Ethics Award?
BBB’s Board of Directors and its Foundation have established the BBB Business Ethics Awards to recognize those firms whose business practices and related activities exemplify the BBB’s mission and principles, and to ensure that our marketplace remains fair and honorable.
These awards consist of an annual program to gain public recognition for businesses that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their business practices in an ethical fashion. Companies of different sizes are selected by an independent panel of volunteer community leaders based on criteria established by the Council of Better Business Bureau International Torch Award.

NARPRO only recommends independent, family-owned, full-service auto repair shops that have passed 26 rigorous tests of their certifications, customer service, performance, facilities management and auto repair standards record of service to the community. Drivers may visit www.NARPRO.com to find recommended shops near their work or home. Or they may simply call (602) 257-0033 and talk to someone who will connect them to find a top-quality shop in their neighborhood. Either way, NARPRO is the easiest way to find an honest mechanic
