-- We have all had to make significant life adjustments during the ongoing pandemic, and Kenosha residents have been hit hard financially. The community was also impacted financially by riots and curfews during the summer and fall of 2020. As an essential business, Bully Diesel and Automotive Repair, remained open, but it its customers struggled to pay the bills to keep their cars running. Bully's owner. Dustin Moravec, reduced labor rates and offered payment plans to help customers keep their vehicles safe on the road. He also wanted to ensure his employees were able to keep working and pay their own bills. Moravec reduced his monthly income to below what his employees were being paid to make ends meet.
"This has been a time of adaptability and re-evaluation, in how we live our personal lives and how we conduct business. I've had to be creative about how we get things done, and how we can support one another during this challenging time." Reflecting on his priorities, Moravec is moving his shop to a smaller location at 5819 522nd Street. Bully will continue to provide professional, timely and competent service at a reduced labor rate for the remainder of the pandemic. He remains hopeful about Bully's future, noting that the new shop will have reliable heating and cooling so his employees can work comfortably. He believes the shop front will be more welcoming to customers. And with the bays located closer together, he will be better able to nurture the skill sets and growth of his technicians. He expects that these changes will be better for the business moving forward, and is grateful for customer support. "When I started this business, I was passionate about creating an auto shops that people could trust. We strive to be the best in our field. It has been an honor to be a part of the Kenosha community, and to support it during troubled times. But, without the support of our customers, we would cease to exist." https://www.facebook.com/BullyAutomotive/
