Quick lube partners with detail shop

CHATTANOOGA, TN — "It's about offering as many services to clients as possible and trying to be a one-stop shop," says the owner of Change-N-Go.

CHATTANOOGA, TN — Change-N-Go, a quick lube, and Chattanooga Detail have teamed up to offer customers more services, Nooga.com reported.

The Nov. 22 story quoted Change-N-Go Owner James Chapman who said, "We are two energetic businesses. We had good energy and good vibes, and we both have a good base of customers. It's about offering as many services to clients as possible and trying to be a one-stop shop."

Chapman and his business partner Jeremy Sharp had only been offering mobile oil change services, but now also operate out of the Chattanooga Detail location, which is owned by David Hopkins and his business partner Matt Browder.

According to Chapman, the idea to partner up came from their customers.

"Once we talked about it, we said, 'Let's just make it happen,'" Chapman said in the story. "We thought it'd be a good fit."
