Default Dunedin area friends, need a favor, insight on a business...

My good friend and trusted mechanic is looking into a move to Dunedin/Clearwater area.

He's spent a couple days "test working" at Main Street Auto in Dunedin. The shop owner is Bobby Baldwin; pretty much a one-man shop.

If all goes well, I am going to lose my local mechanic here in VA. But he's literally going to upend his whole life to take this job, which almost sounds too good to be true...(you know the rest).

Just looking to do a little due diligence for him. The place has good reviews online, no BBB history, and no bad stuff on the internet about the owner.

Never heard anything good or bad about that place let me know how this ends up. If he works on boats might be able to get him some work

There is about 500 car dealers on 19 between Clearwater and Tarpon Springs .

A good mechanic will have no problem I would think with that many dealers.

Thanks for the feedback.
Unfortunately I lost my best mechanic this week as he moved to Dunedin to take the job.
Good for him. Bad for me. I guess I need to move south too.

If he doesn't like it shoot me a message. We need a good tech or two that knows his stuff!

If he works on boats my buddy has a shop too that can always use a good hand.
