Take Pride In Your Performance
Kost’s philosophy, “take pride in your performance”, has been in place since it’s founding and is still evident today. Kost Tire and Auto Service management credits it’s continued growth and believes one of the biggest reasons for it’s success is it’s people. “We employ local people who are ASE certified and state inspection technicians.
We are very fortunate to have such dedicated and talented people who work hard to make buying tires and related auto services a pleasant experience for our growing list of customers. “Our sales force as well as our office staff, delivery and warehouse staff are always willing to help any customer who walks through our doors.”
”Our customers deserve our best service and we do whatever it takes to deliver it.” – Erwin Kost Sr.
We at Kost Tire & Auto Service believe the other reason for our success is our continuing effort to give our customers guaranteed lowest prices and the best pricing on products, and back them up with 100% customer service satisfaction.
