Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers was founded in 1979 in Birmingham, Alabama. Through this time, the company has enjoyed a long line of history and success in servicing fleet customers. In fact, the concept of Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers was born out of the unmet need to bring a speed of service solution to fleet businesses.

Jim Lunceford, the founder of Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers owned and operated a traditional single location automotive service center. As his business grew, and in particular his fleet customer business, he saw the need to operate a facility and create processes that were completely focused on professional automotive maintenance and repair conducted with highly efficient speed and delivery of service.

The need is real. Fleet customers cannot afford to be waiting and idle during key business times. A car or truck waiting for repair, an oil change or other maintenance is time wasted and business lost. The Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers operating model is the optimum solution to fleet customers’ needs.

Today, that original focus remains. Over 4,000 fleet operators trust us to maintain and repair their fleets. Continually expanding on the concept, Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers is highly suited to meeting the needs of fleet customers throughout the South.
