Lakeland Transmission & Auto Services is an independently owned shop in Monticello, MN that opened its doors in January of 1998. It is located in the industrial park area of Monticello in a building that is 8700 square feet in size. At that time we felt that we would never use all that space and 1/3 of the building were rented out for storage.
The rest of the building was organized into a transmission rebuilding facility, 3 hoists added, and a storage area was constructed.
Though it was started with an emphasis on transmission repair it soon becomes evident that there were a lot of problems with the rest of the vehicle's systems that would affect the transmission and so a certified general repair technician was added to the staff.
As the business grew so did the need for more equipment and space. In the year 2000, we expanded our transmission rebuilding facilities to the area formerly rented out and added 4 more hoists. We purchased more up-to-date equipment and added more personnel.
We now operate out the entire 8700 square feet with 4 technicians and a service writer. This growth and organization have allowed us to control the quality of our service and increase our commitment to our customers that they receive the best service and products available.
