Teamwork Makes the Motor Work with the Parts and Service Team at Team Chevy


Team Chevy prides themselves on teamwork across all departments, especially within the Service and Parts Departments. These two departments are exactly what makes the “motor run,” both figuratively and literally at Team Chevy.

Simply put, these departments work together to fix cars. They ensure any car that comes through their doors is fixed properly, in a timely manner, and is back out on the road safely. This includes Chevys and other brands, and it doesn’t even have to be a vehicle that was purchased at Team Chevy. This is not an easy task, and it takes some strong leaders to make it happen each day.

That is where Suzanne Shaver and Mary Goodwin come in. It may still be rare to see women in the car business, but the Service and Parts Departments at Team Chevy is the exception. Both sectors are managed by women with Shaver running the Service Department and Goodwin running the Parts Department. These ladies run a tight ship and love every aspect of it, from the job itself, to their team, to the company they work for.

They always want to ensure their customers get the best service possible.

“We try to only sell GM parts and our team takes GM training and certification courses,” Goodwin said. “This ensures the best service and product.”

The Team Chevy culture that surrounds them as well as the strong team atmosphere are helpful in the success of the Service Department.

“We really do like each other,” Shaver said, laughing. “We work really well together with no separation between service and sales, just an entire team.”

It is not just the management but also the technicians within the service group that are committed to Team Chevy and ensuring good work.

“This team is really motivated and committed to hitting our monthly goals,” Shaver said. “They work hard, sometimes late or without taking a break to get the job done…The more you do, the more you make, even in service so it works well.”

Each day is very different in the world of servicing vehicles. Team Chevy’s Service Department opens at 7:30am and runs all day. These days can be long and stressful with cars arriving right as the doors open all the way to closing time. Nevertheless, they all love the workflow and the job. With the entire team striving to get through as many vehicles as possible and fix them correctly every time, hard work and motivation is a must.

“Some days you have a nice easy flow of customers and sometimes they all come at once," Mary laughed. “This team is awesome at working together to make it happen.”

No matter what, the Service and Parts Departments at Team Chevy are some of the best in the region and are managed by the only female duo within the 22 Gurley Leep locations. Team Chevy can service your vehicle and can ensure safety, timely service, and a pleasant experience.
