About Us



Although Trans Masters Auto Care & Performance Center was opened in 1989, it has only been under current management since 2007. Our owner -- Rick Frye Jr. -- purchased the business after working for the previous owner for several years. Coming in, Rick carried extensive industry experience since starting in his father's transmission shop 40 years ago. He knew how to provide a quality service experience, which his team of ASE Certified Technicians is the perfect representation of his vision.

Rick isn't the only one on our team with the experience to get the job done right. Our technicians also have extensive experience in our business and the industry as a whole. Instead of relying solely on previous experience, they also keep themselves up-to-date on industry standards and maintain their certifications year-over-year. All of our staff are ASE Certified, and one technician has achieved the label of a Ford Master Technician. Combine this level of experience and knowledge with state-of-the-art equipment, and we have the perfect set up to provide a high-quality auto care experience that brings the best out of your vehicle.

We aim to treat you like family, and our service advisors work diligently to ensure that’s always the case. They’ll take the time to learn more about you and your vehicle, asking key questions about its health, driving history, your budget, and more. Using this information, they’ll be able to create and explain a service plan tailored to your situation. Our advisors will explain each service and its price point so you know what’s being worked on and what you’re paying. They’ll happily answer any question, comments, and concerns you have during the service as well, so you can feel at ease with what we’re doing and our approach to doing it.
