About Ellis Automotive

Racing Background Fosters "Pit Crew Maintenance Style"

Ellis Automotive was founded by Rick Ellis in 1980. Having raced stock cars for several years prior to starting the company, Rick decided to apply his knowledge of racing to the automotive repair business. Rick comments: "Learning what it takes to keep a race car on the circuit, and in particular, what it takes to make a fast turn around in the pit and get back on the track, are skills that I felt could be applied to maintenance of passenger cars and trucks".

Over the three plus decades that the company has been in business, Rick's "pit crew style' of maintainence has caught on and the company has developed a local reputation for quick turn-around for most types of repairs. Repairs and maintenance are offered on foreign and domestic cars, light trucks, and SUV's.

Low Overhead + Quick Turn-Around = Competitive Prices

The goal of Ellis Automotive has never been to be the largest auto repair shop in town, but rather the best. By national automotive repair chain standards, Ellis Automotive is a small facility. But don't let their size fool you. The shop turns out the highest work volume of any shop in the area. What enables Rick and his crew of ASE certified mechanics to accomplish this is their focus on getting cars into and out of the maintenance bays quickly. You have to have accurate diagnostics, and then you have to possess the mechanical skills to fix the problem right the first time in order to do this.

Low overhead, quick turn-around, and high volume, enables Ellis Automotive to offer lower prices than most other shops in the area. This is important to customers who are already facing record fuel prices and sticker shock on the vehicles they are buying. Rick Ellis will be the first to tell you that skimping on maintenance is not the way to ensure that your investment will be protected and your vehicle will last. So his customers appreciate the fair prices and a "fix it right the first time" philosophy that keeps them on the road.

Customer Loyalty

Many Ellis Automotive customers have been with the company since its inception in the 80's. In fact, Ellis boasts of knowing most of them on a first name basis You don't develop this kind of repeat business without achieving an extremely high degree of excellence and customer satisfaction. The company enjoys an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and this comes only from good reports and customer relations over the years.

Even though Pearland and the surrounding area populations that Ellis Automotive serves have increased exponentially over the last decade, the "neighborhood garage" atmosphere that the company furnishes hasn't changed since the beginning.
