My name is Shaun and my wife’s name is Crystal. We are a husband-and-wife team that started this adventure about a year ago in our three-car garage.
I want to take a quick minute to talk about us, and who we are:
Since I was a kid, I have always been fascinated by anything with wheels, rather it be on road, or off road. I have always loved to tinker and build things. While it has always been a hobby of mine, I never considered doing it professionally. In fact, both my wife and I are advanced practice nurses for our day jobs. My wife and I have greatly enjoyed being small business owners and are having fun with this endeavor and growing it.
What we Make:
We currently make catalytic converter protection/off road skid plates. We are different from most other off road skid plate manufacturers in that we also design our plates to protect the catalytic converters. We differ from most catalytic converter protection plate manufacturers in that we also design our plates to be strong enough to function as an off-road skid plate. Catalytic converter theft has been crazy the past two years, and we hope to offer the best deterrent we can. I do think eventually, the amount of theft will slow down, which is why I am also focusing on entering the off-road accessory market. Gotta Diversify!
Why choose us:
-At Talons garage we are 100% in-house. From designing to fabricating to packing and shipping - we do it all! Being solely in-house means better prices for end consumers. We do not mark up our prices and try to keep fair prices for all.
-Our products are made out of ¼” aluminum, which is twice as thick as most catalytic convertor protection plates on the market. The added thickness makes it near impossible for thieves to be able to cut through the shield easily. Because our plates are made out of aluminum they will not rust and therefore it is not necessary to powder coat them - Though you may choose to do so for the aesthetics!
-Here at Talons garage we are a Veteran-owned business
-We advertise a 1 week lead time as a worse-case-scenario, but on average we can have most orders out same-day or following business day. We do not have an extensive back log on our products. If it is in stock, it is ready to ship!
-We take pride in providing the best customer service! Our response times are no more than 24-hours (unless it is during the weekend or a holiday). If you have not heard from us within 24-hours - message us again and let us know. We do want to point out that we do not have a receptionist to answer phone calls, so to be completely transparent, email is the best way to contact us.
-We are always looking for ways to grow our business. Please feel free to tell us how we are doing and how we can better serve our community!
In our future we hope to offer full off-road packages to include skid plates for the engine, transmission, transfer case, gas tanks, rails, and more! This is only the beginning for us and we hope to be around for years to come! As we grow, we are continuing to look for ways to invest in new machinery and processes to offer you only the best quality product. Stay tuned in on our journey!
