Tiger Auto Detail
Thomas Campbell (pictured) has always kept his vehicles spotless and loves the sense of pride that comes with driving around in a sparkling car. Thomas opened Tiger Auto Detail to provide this same sense of pride to the Tigard community, offering full-service interior and exterior cleaning and conditioning services at his shop in downtown Tigard. Going on three years in business, Thomas enjoys meeting the variety of people that come through his doors and learning more about why they are getting their vehicle detailed. “It’s interesting to see the types of vehicles that come in, Thomas says. “Dirty, not so dirty, family vehicles, work vehicles, people selling their car or people giving a vehicle to their kid as a gift.”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Thomas has altered his services to ensure customers feel safe getting their vehicles serviced, including extra disinfecting during the cleaning process. Thomas has also begun selling merchandise with the signature Tiger Auto Detail logo to supplement income during the downturn. Nevertheless, business has slowed considerably, and Tiger Auto Detail was awarded a $1,500 Tigard CARES grant to help pay immediate operating expenditures. “The grant gave me the hope to keep fighting,” says Thomas. “I’m going to keep fighting to grow my business. While I’ve been in Tigard I’ve seen how the community supports small business – it’s great to be a part of this community family!”
