Alex's story

My passion for cars began when I was just a boy. I loved to draw & had dreams of designing my own vehicles one day. All I watched were YouTube videos about cars, whether it was their speed, appearance, or what products they used, I could not get enough. As I grew older, my passion transitioned towards the cosmetic aspect of cars. I began to work on my own vehicles, detailing them and doing minor mechanic work. It all started in my dad's garage. I'd spend hours detailing my cars, using the handful of supplies I had at the time. I was always researching new products and new techniques, looking for ways to improve and do more. After a couple of years of repeated practice and research, the idea of Black Label Auto was born. I decided to turn my passion into a career. My dream is to provide a one-stop shop for all of your automotive needs - Detailing, Window Tint, Ceramic Coating, Vinyl Wrap & Paint Protection Film. I started with just a mobile detailing van, that had a pressure washer, air compressor, and a vacuum, along with a single basket of detailing products. From there, I was able to secure my first building, where I am able to offer Window Tint and Ceramic Coating year-round. As my business continues to grow, I will be able to offer Vinyl Wrap & Paint Protection Film. As I become more experienced, I will be able to pass my knowledge and skills down to young individuals who may not have the resources or the opportunity to get involved in the industry. I also plan on conducting fundraising events for specific charities. Customer satisfaction is what it's all about and I am proud of what I've built.
