Tri-Cities Automotive Repair, which began as Lock Out Automotive in 2013 and was renamed in 2016, is a woman-owned and family operated auto repair facility in Kennewick, WA offering a variety of auto repair and maintenance services for all vehicle makes and models.
Tim, one of the shop's owners, grew up building cars and auto racing with his mom, who had a love and passion for muscle cars. After learning basic maintenance from her, Tim's excitement for all aspects of auto repair grew. He later completed the automotive program at Tri-Tech Skill Center before graduating from the University of Oregon (UO). After college, Tim spent 13 years working for an international Fortune 500 automotive company, starting as an oil change tech and moving up to management. He then moved to Kennewick, WA and, shortly thereafter, opened up shop with his wife Deborah. They now work with local students to perpetuate automotive education.
