Our Story/ About Us
Founded by “Mike” & “Mikey” we were tempted to call ourselves M&M Transmissions but we thought that might be a little too tacky…. And we certainly didn’t want the candy company kicking our door down for it! So we decided on Desert Transmissions. Simple, Clean and Accurate. We are located in Glendale, Arizona just outside of Arizona’s capitol city of Phoenix. As you know Arizona is a big desert so what better way to describe our shop?
Mike was born and raised in Phoenix, living mostly in the east valley. He graduated from Camelback High School in 2005 and went on to study at Rio Solado Community College. He started his first business in Tempe shortly after highschool, a software company that sold e-commerce tools to small businesses and website owners. Mike’s background is in sales, business management, internet marketing and customer service. Mike’s software company grew for several years before companies like Godaddy grew larger and larger offering similar types of services at a fraction of the cost. Eventually Mike decided it was time to take his talents elsewhere and was hired as the general manager of a Goodyear transmission shop handling the customer service, website and marketing.
Mikey was born in California and moved to Canada with his family as an infant. Mikey’s family has owned and operated transmissions shops all over the place including Canada and the U.S. After a few years Mikey’s family decided to move back to the States and landed in Arizona. Mikey graduated from La Joya highschool in Avondale, Arizona and then studied at Glendale Community College while also studying automotive technology at West-MEC in Deer Valley. Mikey started working in his parents’ and family’s transmission shops as an R&R technician and eventually learned how to build transmissions. Before long Mikey flew the coup to get some more experience working at some of the name brand transmission franchise shops in the valley and finally decided that it was time to start his own.
We decided as a team to start our own transmission shop, combining all of the good things we’ve learned about transmissions and transmissions shops over the years and eliminating all of the things we didn’t like. After years of dealing with customers we’ve learned what they do, and don’t like. We’ve heard the great stories and the horror stories of dealing with auto repair shops and mechanics. It’s important to us that we are able to ease the process of repairing your vehicle when something happens. Offering a free tow and transmission diagnosis was important to us as well as offering rental reimbursement so our customers aren’t stranded or forced to take a bus to continue their daily routine. But it doesn’t stop there, we want to make sure we’re offering a quality product and service at a fair price, to make sure that the average consumer has options to repair and finance their repairs if needed and that we provide the best warranty in Arizona. We’re the first shop in the valley to offer a 5 year warranty on a rebuilt transmission. And we’ll do it for less than the dealerships or franchise auto/transmission shops charge!
Our dedication to quality and service is second to none from the minute you call us about your issue, throughout the repair process, when you pickup your vehicle and beyond!
