I've been in automotive repair for 10 years. I have achieved ASE certification of Level 1 & 2.

Mark Prestine

Service Advisor

As the new kid on the block, I know I have landed an award winning company to work for and so excited to put my 20 years of experience on the counter! I am ASE certified in this ever changing auto repair arena.

My belief is a value of "Honest repairs at a Honest price!" I enjoy my interaction with the clients and the constant challenges on today's vehicles. I like that I could send my friends & relatives to any of our shops and have peace of mind knowing that they will be treated great, the issues will be properly diagnosed, fixed with the correct parts & repaired correctly.

I love to spend time riding ATV's & jet skiing with my son, Lance. Love sports, the outdoors or just relax watching football on a Sunday morning. I share my life with my two loves, my wife Amanda & my daughter Addy. I know life is good & embrace it daily!

Randy Beck


When Community Tire Pros & Auto Repair moved into the building, I guess you could say I came with it... 16 years at this Durango location! What a great change to the ambiance as well as the response from the clients. I have worked with big rig vehicles/trucks for most of my 44 years in the tire buisness. I am humbled as so many of our customers that have stayed with me over the years... At Community Tire Pros, we are all about customer service and pride in ourselves in always putting the customers first! My 6 years as an Air Force Security Police Staff Sergeant lends me with the "Common Sense" of just doing the Right thing for everyone! My career has given me the training of: Michelin Certified in Sales, Tech Patch certified, Bridgestone/Firestone certified and more ~ too numerous to list throughout my career.
My wife of 41 years has been a blessing and we have raised a son, Jason - now 38. We adore our grandchildren as well as spend as much time permitted in a cabin in Prescott, a pleasant relief from the Phx heat!
