Auto Tech, March’s Client of the Month, is a full service auto repair shop located at 495 Albany Avenue in Kingston. Owned and operated by Juan Perez Ventura for the past 15 years, Juan has been in the auto repair business since 1986, but his passion for cars began when he was just a kid.
According to Juan, there was a body shop near his family’s home that he passed on his way to school every day. At the age of 12, he asked the owner (who was a friend of his grandfather’s) to let him work for free so that he could learn to work on cars. He agreed, and Juan worked for a year, learning side by side with the owner. Then at the age of 15 he gave Juan his first paying job!
Juan now runs his own auto repair shop and has three employees. He is an ASE Certified Master Automobile Technician, ASE Certified Advanced Level Specialist, and is certified on foreign and domestic cars.
Ryan & Ryan recently introduced Auto Tech to the Healthy NY program, which provided them with a Gold Level plan for the same price of a high deductible Bronze plan. This resulted in a $400 monthly savings per family with a deductible that is 50% lower than what they previously had.
When asked why Juan chose R&R as his shop’s insurance agency, he responded by stating:
“I belong to the Chamber of Commerce and worked with Yvonne on my company’s health insurance. She was a pleasure to work with and made the process seem easy. So we are now looking to continue to work with Ryan & Ryan on other insurance.”
