About LOF-Xpress

Experience the LOF-Xpress™ Difference

Ever wonder what sets LOF-Xpress™ apart from its competitors and why you can trust us with your vehicle?

Everything you need to know about the LOF-Xpress™ Fast, Friendly & Honest experience.

LOF-Xpress™ Oil Change is locally-owned, and not just another quick-lube. It’s a model-driven by customer choice. Ted Sage, the original owner-operator of LOF-Xpress™ Oil Change, previously spent 10 years as the owner of a national quick lube franchise. During that time, Ted saw customers frustrated by the industry-standard “full-service” oil change – a 15+ minute oil change, including a laundry list of additional service requests. Over and over, customers’ consistent demand was “just an oil change.” Thus, the birth of the LOF (Lube, Oil, and Filter) concept.

LOF-Xpress™ Oil Change is built on this simple, yet valuable concept – lube, oil, and filter change in just minutes. The LOF-Xpress™ service was designed for the busy driver on the go. Whether before work with an Early Bird Xpress service, on a lunch break, or rushing to an appointment or class, our three-point Xpress Oil Change drive-thru service provides fast, stay-safe in your car service.

For those in need of a more comprehensive service, we also offer a PLUS Oil Change. This is our 3-point Lube-Oil-Filter service, designed for the vehicle owner needing an oil change, PLUS a 12-point prevention check. Still just a short, 20-minute average service time, and best of all, no appointment is ever needed.

Customer comfort.

Customer comfort is always a top priority at LOF-Xpress™. You can wait in your car, as part of our in-car experience, while watching on the service video monitor, or take in some TV on one of or 4 big screens, while you enjoy a complimentary cup of Caribou coffee, hot chocolate or tea. If you’re receiving the PLUS service, you may want to wait in our cozy, Northwoods lounge and enjoy the WiFi.

Our top priority at LOF-Xpress™ is to bring integrity back to the car care industry! Our shops have cameras and microphones, so you can trust that we are giving it to you straight! No over-charging, no over-diagnosing. Just good old-fashioned honesty and customer service.

For your convenience, we interface all your vehicle’s LOF-Xpress™ Oil Change service records with CARFAX®. Once you have set up your FREE myCARFAX.com account, you will be able to view not only LOF-Xpress Oil Change service records, but ANY/ALL other dealership and repair shop service records that also subscribe to CARFAX®. This gives you a more complete and comprehensive way of keeping track of your vehicle services in a fully automated, user-friendly way.
