BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., Dec. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Doug's Auto Repair, LLC opened just 18 months ago, but owner Amanda Bowlby believes her business has carved out a nice niche in Bonita Springs.
The arrival of U-Haul® trucks, trailers, towing equipment, rental support items and moving boxes has aided that cause.
The shop is located at 10940 K Nine Drive. It is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Reserve U-Haul items at Doug's Auto Repair by visiting http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/Truck-Rentals-near-Bonita-Springs-FL today.
Bowlby said Doug's Auto Repair already has become a U-Haul hub for the area, seeing moving trucks come and go on a daily basis. Doug Bowlby, the shop's namesake, is an ace mechanic. So when Amanda Bowlby had the chance to open a repair shop, she jumped at it.
Transitioning from the beauty industry, Amanda noted that ordering auto parts is a lot more fun than washing women's feet. She added that having a woman-owned repair shop has allowed her female customers to feel more comfortable.
Bowlby comes from a family of U-Haul customers and noted that offering U-Haul products was "a no-brainer for me." She is so dedicated that she often drives 30 miles to get the right products for her customers, because she would never try to sell them "something they don't need."
Customers can expect no hassling and complete satisfaction at Doug's Auto Repair. It also is a great place to become U-Haul Famous. Take your picture in front of a U-Haul product, send it in and your face could land on the side of a U-Haul truck. Upload your photo through Instagram using #uhaulfamous, or go to www.uhaulfamous.com to submit photos and learn more.
From now through Dec. 31, U-Haul will donate $1 to the American Red Cross for every photo submitted.
