Rick Smith Michael Glandon


In 1995 Rick Smith, a respected certified master technician, struck out on his own after 12 years of General Motors and Nissan dealership experience. Out of all the technicians he worked with over the years, one stood out – Michael Glandon. The timing was finally right in 2001 and Michael agreed to work for Rick. In 2006, a partnership was formed between the Smith and Glandon families.


As certified master technicians we continually update training, equipment, and procedures. As craftsmen, a very high level of importance is placed on cleanliness, professionalism, and doing the best quality job possible.

As men of faith, the treatment of individuals is paramount. Employees, vendors, and of course clients, must be treated with respect, kindness, and integrity. Business operations and policy are based on biblical principals.


Bosses push, leaders pull. At Mercie J there is no need to force the employees to do what’s right. Every person on staff is fully on board with the vision of Mercie J and follows the leadership that Michael and Rick provide. Before making any decision, all of us at Mercie J ask 3 questions, “Is it good for the car, is it good for the client, and is it good for the company?” If the answer to all three “C’s” is yes, then we’re good to go, if not, then we need to come up with a solution. So whether you deal with an owner or an employee, you will receive the same level of service with the ultimate goal of serving you for life.


Our technical staff has 70 years of combined experience servicing most makes and models both import and domestic. We have a reputation for diagnosing the most difficult issues as well as performing top quality scheduled maintenance. Our counter staff has more than 60 years of combined experience giving solid consultation to help you make the most informed decisions possible.

Price shopping for a gallon of milk is relatively easy. There are a lot of regulations controlling food so the quality is somewhat uniform. Other grocery items may be a little more difficult – we have to read labels and calculate price per ounce because the packaging may be different sizes. When we move to things like clothing or appliances, we have to work a little harder to be educated consumers. The fact that some advertising is misleading makes the process even that more difficult.

In any type of service business, the challenge goes up exponentially. Parts like roof shingles, plumbing valves, and alternators vary in quality. Without expertise in those fields, it is almost impossible to really tell the difference. Labor is even more difficult. What unseen details are included or overlooked?

The absolute best way to compare is to interview others who have done business with the companies you are interested in. Once you have decided to check pricing, here are some questions you should ask.

  • Is the estimate just parts and labor?
  •  Does the estimate include tax?
  • Are there additional charges for shop supplies or waste disposal?
  • How long is the warranty?
  • Does the warranty cover parts and labor?
  •  Is the estimate padded a bit to cover any unknowns?
  •  Is there a guarantee that the estimate will not be exceeded?
  • Are tow bills or any additional failures covered due to a warranty issue?

The reality is that in most cases, no shop can give you an accurate estimate without first inspecting the vehicle. Ultimately, it’s best to choose a shop you are comfortable with – one that you are confident is giving you everything you pay for. A year after the repairs are completed you will remember the quality far more than you will remember the price. In the end, quality repair shops are going to be very similar in price.

Repair shopping can be very confusing. If you have any questions about a particular situation, please give us a call. Even if we are not in the running for your business, we’ll still be glad to give you information to help you make your best choice.
