For just over a year, the family-owned Express Oil has been offering customers 10-minute oil changes with a touch of southern hospitality.
The business, owned by Nicole and Andy Deren and Andy’s aunt, Nancy Johnson, celebrated its one-year anniversary July 22.
At Express Oil, customers stay in their vehicles while technicians change the oil from pits below.
“There aren’t too many stay-in-the-car oil change places. We make it nice for families who don’t’ have to unbuckle your kids and take them to a lobby,” said Nicole Deren. “We cater to people who aren’t comfortable with oil changes, as well as the customer who wants to sit in their car, take a few phone calls and enjoy their morning cup of coffee or the complementary bottle of water.”
Tuesday is “Ladies Day,” when female drivers get a $5 discount and a carnation provided by a local florist.
The VIP club that allows customers to earn points for services they receive and keep track of their vehicle’s history. At 1,000 points, customers earn a $7 off coupon and at 2,000 points they earn a $15 off coupon. The coupons can be used for an oil change or mechanical service.

Express Oil is a full service, one-stop shop for rotating and balancing tires, as well as checking air conditioning, hoses, wires and batteries. Tune-ups, brake services and alignments are also available. Mechanic Mike Rzonca is a 30-year professional.
Express Oil brings a touch of southern hospitality to the region, and the owners pride themselves in providing friendly service and treating their customers with honesty, trust and respect.
Deren said she hopes there will be at least three Express Oil locations in the area within the next few years. The business is also actively involved in community events like the recent Dyer Corn Roast.
