In 2005, I bought an old, 1997 Oldsmobile. THAT car gave me more trouble in getting it fixed, than I had bargained for. My savior at that time, was Hani Rached, the owner of Auto Paradise Repair 2004, who was recommended to me by a friend, who thought that Hani was the best mechanic ever! After meeting Hani and seeing how efficient he was with taking care of my car, I too can attest to his reliability, honestly, and flexibility in fixing my car. It was not only that the car was old, but back then, I was barely making ends meet and the financial pressure of fixing the car, (which I needed),was huge. Hani never turned me down and he ensured that I always had the best service.
One day, he told me that it was time to let go of the old car! I listened to him and by that time, I was able to get a brand new car. However, I have never let go of Hani because he is the best mechanic and one of the most genuine, down to earth persons I have ever met. He hears from me mainly when I have a car problem but over the last two years, we have started doing some fun, inspiring and creative small ventures.
Over the years, Hani has grown his business to a leading edge garage which provides a full, professional service to clients at a competitive price. What is very inspiring for me, is that he is a newcomer and a great role model to help other newcomers see the possibilities that they can rise to… with some focus, clear goals and determination.
In 2013, Hani sponsored the launch of Gems of the Caribbean in Ottawa. In 2015, he sponsored Inspiration 2016. He was one of our featured guest speakers and his story of building his enterprise will be featured in the 2nd Edition of Mags Magazine – Soulful Encounters. At inspiration 2016, he shared one of the most important tips that he has learnt in running his business and which I can also say that I have experienced with him.
“I don’t see my customers as numbers. Every customer is important and I pay attention to their needs. It is important in our profession that we communicate effectively with our customers and that they leave our garage feeling happy and satisfied.” Hani Rached.
