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.

What others are saying...

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.

I was recently in your service location with a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali. Dan advised me to get additional work done, beyond my initial comfort zone as it would substantially improve the ride. I want to take this opportunity to thank him for his suggestions. My Yukon drives like it's new and its got over 125,000 miles on it. In addition, I was in a hurry that day, and the additional service took longer than I had originally planned. He set my expectation on a completion time and met it. I was able to complete my transaction by paying up front and jumped in my car and drove away as the service was completed. Thank you very much!!

Thanks for trouble shooting the LTPL (Low tire pressure light) that was a nuisance in my Rx330 control panel while driving. This is something Lexus dealership couldn't diagnose let alone know how to cure it. They inflated all my tires to normal pressure including the spare in the trunk with the hope of getting rid of the light to no avail. But your skilled machanic was able to trouble shoot the problem with a push of a botton, pretty amazing. Now my wife doesn't have to nag on me again about the light (laugh). Keep up the good work.
