Featured Small Business- Dipman Auto Service

Since 2006, Dipman Auto Service has been a family owned and operated business. Shane Dipman’s passion for fixing vehicles started when he was a young boy.  According to his wife, Shauna, “Shane took his mother’s car apart to find a noise that was driving her crazy.  She wasn’t sure if he would remember where all the small parts went.  He not only remembered but fixed the noise.”  He started his career in the automotive industry in high school as a mechanic, continued as a sales writer and went on to be a store manager.  After 16 years of working for someone else, Shane and Shauna decided it was time to do something for their family.  It only made sense to own their own business. He knew with his technical and management experience he could be a successful business owner.

On March 1, 2006, the Dipman’s purchased an established automotive business located in a rented eight bay space in Olathe.  Shane managed the store’s day to day business while Shauna did the accounting and behind the scenes internal affairs.  Their business grew, but not without adversities.  They withstood an economic crash, employee complications, and an embezzlement that almost ended the future of the business. Dipman Auto was able to survive and flourish not only by providing customers with honest, outstanding automotive services, repairs and customer care but by surrounding themselves with high-quality professionals like Kelly T. Davis, CPA and now Douglas L Freeman, CPA.

Due to the growth over the past few years, Shane and Shauna realized that they needed to expand their auto service bays. They built a brand-new facility which opened July 1, 2018 at 802 W Old 56 Hwy Olathe, Kansas. This state-of-the-art location offers the newest most advanced equipment with 10 bays and highly qualified technicians to better serve their clients. Dipman Auto Service is also known for being a Goodyear and Michelin Dealer. They service every make and model of vehicle. Shane says, “If it has an engine we can usually fix it! At Dipman’s customers can expect honest, reliable, and fair priced services! We help customers prepare for scheduled maintenance and hopefully avoid expensive surprises. We fix car’s, but we help people.”

Dipman Auto Service is a well-known, established company and fondly thought of by countless patrons who continually send their friends and family to their trusted facility.
