History of Allan's Automotive in Palm Harbor

Allan Rodriques opened Allan’s Automotive and Mad Hatter Muffler on the corner of Alt 19 and Tampa Rd in 1985. A few years later, he moved to his current location at 671 Alt US 19, Palm Harbor, where he has been for 23 years.

Armed with an Electronics and Computer Engineering degree, Allan joined the workforce where he quickly became a Service Manager after 6 months on the job. Technology was his passion and he had a knack for managing people.

After 13 years, he decided it was time to become his own boss and researched business ideas. He decided to use his technical knowledge and people skills to open up a muffler shop. Eventually, the shop grew into a full-service automotive repair shop.

His greatest source for business training was his mother, who ran a grocery store. She taught Allan how to treat people: Treat people how you want to be treated and never assume they don’t understand you.

“I don’t care if you are a teenager or an elderly person, when I explain something to you, you’ll know exactly what I am talking about,” shares Allan. “This way, the customer understands exactly what they are getting and can have a positive experience.”

Allan’s Automotive has always been honest and reliable. So much so that a major chain muffler shop has taken work to them to fix a botched job. The check from the company is proudly hanging in the shop’s waiting room among Allan’s golf trophies. He likes to get out on the green whenever he can.

“You can’t please everyone. You just can’t,” reflects Allan. “But most of my business comes from word of mouth and my customers refer their friends, family and coworkers to me all the time.”

Honesty and “doing the best job possible” are the cornerstones to his longevity. Allan always tries to be fair, provide affordable service and keep customers coming back.

"We vow quality replacement of only what is necessary, and do it for less than other major companies."

So, if you need an A/C check, your brakes inspected, your tires rotated or any filters replaced, and you want a mechanic you can talk to and trust, then come on by Allan’s Automotive and Mad Hatter Muffler. You’ll be glad you did. We’re mad about customer satisfaction.
