John Moore’s Auto Repair
John Moore was born in the small town of Litchfield, Illinois in 1910.
He spent his early childhood in the Chicago suburbs, but in 1921, Moore relocated to St. Louis to attend college.
While there, he learned the art of welding and later began his own auto repair business, Moore’s Automotive Repair.
After graduating in 1927, Moore was hired by General Motors as an apprentice in the auto shop.
Moore and his colleagues quickly discovered that they had a knack for building cars.
“It was an amazing experience,” Moore recalled in an interview with Automotive Digest.
“The cars were so beautiful.
The people were so nice.
And the employees were so friendly.”
As the years went by, Moore found himself at the forefront of the auto repair industry.
By 1929, Moore had earned enough money to purchase a fleet of Ford Model A cars.
After his first car was finished, he began working on his second.
He began building his own vehicles in the early 1940s.
Today, the company that bears his name is a top-selling name in the automotive industry, having sold over 100,000 vehicles.
The company is also one of the largest auto parts suppliers in the country, with an annual sales volume of $7 billion.
The automotive industry is in need of an experienced and skilled labor force.
Companies such as Moore’s are trying to attract people with a variety of experience levels.
Moore’s is one of three auto parts manufacturers that provide services in the St. Charles area.
The other two are B&O Automotive, a local supplier of automotive parts, and the Auto Repair Service Center.
In addition to providing repairs, Moore works with many of the major auto manufacturers in the area.
One of his main duties is to make sure the vehicles are in working order.
“We look after the quality of the cars and make sure that they are in the right condition,” he said.
“When you have a car that’s been there 10 years, you want it to be working well.”
One of Moore’s biggest challenges when it comes to cars is finding the right parts for the cars.
Moore works to find the right suppliers for his business, which includes repairing and servicing up to 80% of all vehicles.
It’s a high-risk endeavor, but Moore said that he’s willing to take any risk.
“If you want to know about a car, I’ll work with you,” he added.
“That’s my passion.
And if you want me to do something for you, I’m willing to go.”
As a former auto repair salesman, Moore has a knack to find great deals for his customers.
“I work hard to get the best deal, and I’ll never be greedy about it,” he explained.
“You have to find what’s the best value, and that’s the biggest mistake you can make with a car.”
In addition, Moore is also known for his love of horses.
He’s spent years traveling across the country and has had several horseback rides.
The reason why?
“I love riding,” he continued.
“A horse just wants to be with you, and it loves your company.
It loves you.”
For his service and the quality he provides, Moore earns the respect of his customers and fellow employees.
“John Moore’s works like a charm,” said John O’Reilly, president of the St Louis Auto Club.
“He’s an absolute pleasure to work with.
His customer service is always outstanding.
I’ve worked with him for many years.
John is a great person to work for.”
Moore’s reputation is also based on the quality and reliability of his vehicles.
“They are all top notch,” O’Brien said.
O’Connell said that Moore’s employees are professional and considerate.
“Everyone has a good time, and everyone has a smile on their face,” he remarked.
“Everybody’s happy, and they love what they do.
And that’s why John Moore is such a beloved figure in the community.”
With the automotive boom in the 1980s and 1990s, Moore quickly became a local legend.
Moore said in an earlier interview that his company’s sales have increased since the automobile boom.
“Today, there’s not a single car that hasn’t been repaired by John Moore,” he noted.
“And we do have cars that are not broken in, so that’s another thing that’s going to help us to make the repairs as quickly as possible.”
With such a loyal customer base, it is no surprise that Moore has enjoyed the attention of people all over the world.
Moore also has a passion for horses.
“As I get older, I’ve got more and more respect for them,” he revealed.
“Because they are so friendly and easygoing.
You can tell they are very gentle and good with horses.
You see the difference that you can see on their faces when they are with their horses.
I love horses.” Moore
