Mike Miller – Founder of Dare to Live, The Carpenter’s Garage and My Auto Repair & Tire Center.

Mike is the founder of Dare to Live, the nationally recognized teen suicide prevention program and has spoken to over 3 million teens in 25 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Nine years ago Mike realized that there was a large need for an auto repair shop that provided auto repair and maintenance services for folks who were faced with financial hardship for whatever reason. Mike started The Carpenter’s Garage to provide discounted auto repair based on the financial capabilities of the customer. The Carpenter’s Garage is a federally registered 501(C) 3 non-profit. In the past five years The Carpenter’s Garage has given back over $1 million dollars to the community in scholarships and discounted parts and labor charges. This community centered program continues to serve this under-served segment of the community.


In 2013 Mike decided to offer the community a new concept for auto repair and maintenance that he modeled around a highly successful national wholesale membership program.

My Auto Repair & Tire Center (MARTC) is a membership vehicle maintenance and repair club dedicated to bringing our members the best possible prices on hourly repair labor rates by members only paying the actual time the technician spends on the job. The average hourly labor rate is $75.00 per hour. Members also receive warehouse prices on quality brand-name auto parts, tires, batteries, and accessories. Members save between 25% - 40% on their vehicle repair.

Services offered to My Auto Repair & Tire Center members include a 31 Point Courtesy Inspection; the standard $19.95 Lube, Conventional Oil & Filter ongoing member special; Seasonal Maintenance Program; 24 month, 24,000 mile National Warranty on all repairs including parts and labor; a Nation Wide 24/7 roadside assistance and towing program; a special interest free 6 and 12 month finance program on repairs or purchases over $199; discount car rentals from Enterprise Car Rental, and more. All of these services are designed to make our member’s vehicle maintenance and repair experience as pleasurable and inexpensive as possible. Why pay more than you have to for auto repair?
