About Us, Then and Now...
TMS (The Muffler Shop) opened for business in Baldwin, WI in the late summer of 1978. We were one of the first service centers in Western Wisconsin that offered custom pipe bending and specialized in complete exhaust repair. As the business got busier, we were able to expand to Menomonie in the spring of 1983. Next, was New Richmond in 1993.
As the exhaust business had changed, we were forced to make a decision. Did we want to start doing more than exhaust systems? Yes we did! We started servicing brake & suspension systems, and have since then expanded to a Complete Automotive Facility, doing everything from oil changes to engine & transmission replacements.
Today, we are a full service Automotive Repair Shop, and have since expanded to Boyceville. We have built a strong reputation for our great customer service, and have gone the extra mile to make sure each and every customer is satisfied when they walk out our door.
Our technicians our ASE Certified, and receive ongoing training to keep up with all of todays ever changing technology. We are certified to service air conditioning systems, new and old. We have also been trained to service the new TPMS , which was mandated by the federal government in September of 2007. TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems) are installed in each of your vehicles wheels, taking the place of a standard rubber valve stems. There are a number of different sensors, ranging from $30 each to $150 each. Its job is to alert the driver when the tire is losing tire pressure, to prevent the amount of blowouts on the roadways. It also increases your fuel mileage, making it nearly impossible to drive with underinflated tires. We are specially trained to service these sensors, as well as reset the systems when your tires are rotated or replaced.
We still specialize in custom pipe bending, mufflers, and performance exhaust. A lot of times, if a part isn't available to buy, we can build it for you. We offer brake & suspension service, computerized alignments, computer diagnostics, all major brands of tires, oil & fluid changes, trailer hitches, gas tanks, starting & charging systems and everything else related to your vehicle.
Another thing that has set us apart from our competition is our willingness to work on most anything. We've repaired everything from exercise bikes, to full size tractors. So whether you have a question on a motorcycle, an ATV, or you need a custom pipe or adapter made, give us a call. We'd be glad to give it a try!
