History

Tim Murphy

The Owner, Tim Murphy... A self-described "auto nut', it seems Tim Murphy, owner of Murphy Automotive was born with motor oil in his veins. A Minnesota native, Tim's early years were influenced by his father's ownership and involvement with the automotive wholesale parts business.

While a student at Roosevelt High School, shop classes developed Tim's hands-on repair skills and Normandale Community College provided business management training.

At age 20, working as a technician, then as manager of the Franklin & Nicollet 76 service station, Tim's automotive future was determined. With his father's support as co-signer, Tim became a lease/dealer and opened his first Mobil service station at 46th & Nicollet.

In the the next 30+ years his business expanded to include two Grandview Tire & Auto's, Edina Tire & Auto and ProTech Automotive.

Over the years Tim became an active leader in the service station community. This involvement led to a term as president of the 1,000 member Minnesota Service Station Association. Now known as MSSCSA.

Tim envisioned a premier 'full service' automotive repair facility with staff and equipment superior to any car dealership. Tim made his vision a reality.  The culmination of one man's ongoing commitment to total car care and quality customer service.  This is how ProTech Automotive, both Grandview Tire & Auto's and Edina Tire & Auto came to be.

Hands down--this place is the best around! I always feel 100% satisfied when I leave. They go out of their way to take care of customers. This last time I was in, they found a coupon of greater value than the one I brought in (without me asking), left my car in the garage so I didn't have to load my son back into the car in the rain, gave me a free car wash (as always!), and reminded me to take advantage of topping off my fluids when I'm in the area. They're prompt, skilled, affordable, and enjoyable. I've been going here for years--this isn't out of the ordinary. It's how they do business. Definitely give Grandview a try!

I am always "impressed" with the service I get at Grandview Tire and Auto - Edina - 70th Street. The person that is always courteous, gives great advise and truly cares about giving us the "best service, is Rick Murphy! What I really appreciate about Rick is his knowledge and professionalism and how he helps with keeping the costs down and not doing extra service when it is not needed on our vehicle!

Please pass these comments on to Rick and thank you!
Sincerely,
- James and Betsy Cutcliffe



Hi this message is for Jason Fischer. I want to thank him and his staff very much for the time and effort that was directed to my check engine light trouble that I had with my 2004 Dodge Ram. As directed by Jason I took the vehicle to a Dodge Dealer and they diagnosed frayed wires which they felt were causing this problem. They repaired the frayed wires and so far the check engine light has stayed off. Thanks to Jason and his staff's persistent I think we have finally solved this problem. Thought that he might want to know the hopefully final solution. I will definitely use your services again.

Just wanted to send you a brief note on my experience(s) at your new location in Edina. I had my older car there with a alternator issue and Jeff was very friendly, fair and explained everything in a very patient way. I take issue with some people who say your "prices are too high". I don't find that the case, but would be willing to spend a couple extra dollars for the intangibles, such has being friendly, your car doesn't have workers matts on the ground and smelling like oil and dirty after picking up my car. In addition, they noticed the bolt that holding my oil in the car was 1 and 1/2 turns loose, which was causing a oil leak in my car. This was poor service at Jiffy lube.

My second experience was when my wife brought our new car in for a oil change. They noticed a thumping sound upon their test drive (which no one does for a simple oil change). They explained the problem and noticed the car had such low mileage it should be covered by warranty. Yes, maybe alot of people would have know that, but not all. Instead of recommending getting it done at Grandview, they suggested to go to a dealer. The bottom line was it was covered and probably saved me 1500.00. I doubt there are many places that would have recommended going to a dealer and passing up the business. I feel comfortable with my wife going to you and getting a honest evalation of our car(s). I am now a lifetime customer, its amazing how others don't see the value of returning customers. Thanks Jeff and everyone for your help!

My name is Matt Kirby and I live blocks away from your newly opened store on W. 70th Street in Edina. This is the first letter I have ever written to any company for any reason. Honestly, I thought when this day came it would be for something completely different and asking for you to correct a wrong-doing of sorts. On the contrary, I wanted to thank and congratulate you on a job done perfectly. Your staff at that store is remarkable. What I am so impressed with:

1. Every time I pull in they greet me by my name. (I know they get it off the license plate and I don’t care.) That makes me feel important.

2. The amenities are immaculate and plentiful. Great coffee, clean sitting area, stuff for my daughter to play with, and a spotless bathroom.

3. Everyone is always smiling and overly kind. Its great doing business with people that like what they are doing.

4. No one EVER pressures me into doing work I don’t need or want.

5. It takes under 10 minutes

I have never noticed an entire staff ALWAYS running on 8 cylinders… Consistency is the key to success and whoever is running the show over there is doing a phenomenal job. I personally have sent 5 people to your store and everyone loves it. Best of luck to you in your endeavors and please extend my thanks to everyone at the W. 70th Street store.

Sincerely,
Matt Kirby
