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.

I'm a woman on a budget who is high maintenance (no apologies), asks a lot of questions, and expects respect and professionalism. I will only spend my money at a business who employs specialists who tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I do not want to be oversold, under informed, or condescended to. The crew serving at Grandview Tire and Auto on Vernon BRING it- all of it. I am writing this review following 3.5 years of Grandview servicing four cars for our family, in addition to: car purchase recommendations for teens, road trip assessments, and vehicle education- all entrusted to Dan, Jason and his daughter Caitlyn, John, JJ, Julian, Cory, Devon and the crew. Oh, and good tires, good prices (and I'm a Costco member). Several times, especially in the beginning, I knew more than I let on, and was led in the right direction; sometimes saving us money, always keeping us safe. Standard example: slow oil leak which, as it turns out, is typical of my Subaru model. Grandview assessed, and explained why it does not require the $2,200 fix (yet) recommended by the Subaru dealership (where I was required to get rebate work done). The Grandview oil crew track the notated leak when I drive in for oil changes. Two years later, my sweet 2009 Suby still running strong. Well done, Grandview. You have earned my trust, respect, and this review.

This is a note of great thanks to Kevin the Grandview Night Manager! On October 26th, 2019, my car battery was dead after I came out from Jerry's Grocery Store with 4 bags of groceries. It was 4:50 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon. My husband quickly walked across the street to Grandview on Vernon Avenue and though they were closing at 5 p.m., Kevin came back over to start my car with a portable battery charger. He went above and beyond for us that day and we are very grateful. We have had work done on our cars at the Grandview on Cahill & 70th Street in the past. So I took my car into them and confirmed that I had a bad battery. They installed a new battery and I also had an oil change done too. Thank you Kevin for helping us that day at Jerry's and thank you to Grandview for always being a company of integrity.

A few very positive words about the service that Josh gave me yesterday re my tire problem. As usual, always very courteous and friendly accompanied by a quick solution to my problem!
Thanks once again, Josh!
- Hugh Thompson



I would like to commend Josh for his kindness and help to my wife early this morning (Thursday October 24th) who had just experienced a flat tire on her Toyota Corolla.

He refused to take any money from her, which she would gladly have provided and since we are in the area a fair amount, I will be sure to use your services when I can.

Again, thank you very much.

Thanks for keeping my trusted vehicles running. It is my office, transporter and storage garage all wrapped up in one. Each of you play an integral part in helping me not only with my vehicles, but my business since they are such an integral part.

You are truly the premier service center in our area and I appreciate all you've done through the years.
