Brad’s Motor Marketplace is family owned and operated. Owner, Brad Heimbach, has been working in automotive repair since graduating from Ivy Tech with a degree in automotive sciences in 1992. In fact, Brad has been working for this exact shop (known then as Motor Marketplace) since 1992! In 2003, the former owner made the decision to retire and offered the business to Brad.
At that time, Brad and his wife, Erica, decided to take the plunge and purchase the business and renamed it “Brad’s Motor Marketplace” in May of 2003. At that time, Brad was the only technician on staff and the only other employee was a receptionist. Brad and Erica have grown the business since then and in 2012 outgrew the original shop that only had 4 bays on Beck Lane, so they purchased property and had a 9 bay shop built that they designed. In May of 2012 they made the move to the new shop and business continues to boom! As of December 2015, Brad’s Motor Marketplace has 11 full time employees and one part time employee.
