Austin, a lifelong car enthusiast and naval veteran, started his career fixing diesel equipment in the US NAVY. After serving his term in the military, he started working for the business he currently owns at only 22 years old. At a young age, Austin knew he wanted to make a career in the automotive industry and purchase Import Auto Repair at age 28. Austin’s goals are simple. Allow his business to stand out for not only its integrity but a transparent repair process that all customers can understand and relate to. He hopes that Import Auto Repair will not only continue its legacy for being the first Import specialty shop in Alpharetta but the most professional yet personable shop around.
