Quick oil change with convenience

J&R Mobile Lube is owned by Jason Wilson and Rodney Poston, and these two men have developed a service that is geared toward the person who doesn’t have time to waste.
Their business concept is an unusual one. Wilson and Poston “come to you” and change the oil in your car or truck. A person never leaves the comfort of their home or office.
J&R Mobile Lube provides the same services a customer receives at any oil change business.
J&R not only change oil, but they also change filters, top off fluids, and air up the tires.
Wilson and Poston provide a 14-point inspection and stock belts, hoses, wipers and other parts a car may need. The company also provides minor tune-ups and transmission repair.
J& R Mobile Lube is offering a special right now. A person can receive an oil change for his vehicle for $23.99, which includes a filter and up to five quarts of oil, as well as the 14 point-inspection.
Their goal is to provide convenience to a busy world.
“Our truck is set up like a lube shop on wheels,” said Rodney, when asked about their equipment.
The company is licensed and insured. Wilson and Poston are willing to go anywhere they are needed, including all surrounding counties. Wilson said they would like to work out a plan with White County businesses that would like to provide the service as a benefit to employees.
The idea for the company came from Poston’s cousin who operates a similar business in Florida, which has been successful.
Poston had “dreamed” about starting the business for about two years. He decided there was nothing else in the area like it and decided “to go for it.”
Wilson and Poston are trying to build up their customer base so they can expand and possibly add another truck so they can work independently to provide more service and convenience.
Wilson and Poston are longtime friends and White County residents. Both are employed full-time at BASF.
They can be contacted by calling their office at 761-4129 or cell phones at 808-9762 or 808-1774.
