Faith, honesty and integrity are just a few values you’ll discover at Adair Auto and Tire of Trussville, which has been providing professional automotive service to the surrounding community for more than 25 years. Now offering its services to the Trussville community, owner Don Adair, is optimistic and says 2018 is a year for growth.
Adair Auto and Tire moved from Clay to Trussville this past October. Now in its location Highway 11 at 8198 Gadsden Highway, Adair continues to provide customers with any auto maintenance or repair service necessary to keep their vehicles healthy and safe.
“We also sell twenty different lines of tires,” said Adair. “From the private label to Michelin. We provide services such as basic tire services, brakes, front end, computer diagnostics, general repairs, maintenance, and air conditioning.”
“Adair Auto and Tire have ASE certified auto technicians,” said Adair. “Ensuring customers will receive a repair that is performed correctly while adhering to top industry standards.”
Not only is Adair Auto and Tire a Napa Autocare Center, which are built around quality standards, but it also offers Napa’s EasyPay financing to their customers in need of assistance with unexpected and costly automotive repairs.
“With Napa Autocare we have a mission statement and a code of ethics,” said Adair. “We have a certified auto service, maintain the highest standards of the repair service profession, and are dedicated to customer satisfaction.”
The Napa EasyPay financing, Adair says, is not just another credit card. “It is six months interest free, with no annual fee and nationwide,” said Adair. This is just another value Adair can bring to his customers.
Adair’s mission is faithfully honest.
“My mission is to be honest in repairing people’s cars,” said Adair. “The average car count nationwide for each mechanic to work on is 360 cars per day per mechanic. No one can work on that many. I have to put my head down and go to sleep every night. If you do what you’re supposed to do and do the customers right, then I can go to sleep at night.”
Adair reaches further in his service and asks, “Who are we touching and who are we affecting?”
“This is what I pray every day,” said Adair. “Bring somebody in here that I can minister to – that I can share my faith. I don’t have any signs up in here. I want my life to be the sign.”
Adair emphasizes that his faith is also plays an important role in his business. “2017 was a rough year,” said Adair. “It was also a growth and a miracle year.”
June of last year, Adair’s wife, Denise, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Two months last, Denise underwent numerous chemotherapy treatments and a double mastectomy. In the same month, Don Adair’s daughter, Stephanie, became sick and received a kidney and pancreas
On August 10th, Stephanie received her official papers that she was accepted onto the UAB transplant list. A process Adair explained that generally takes up to two to five years.
“She was on the transplant list for a kidney and a pancreas,” said Adair. “Two weeks later, August 23, Stephanie received her transplant. For
the first time in 27 years, she is not a diabetic. It has still been a journey for us.”
Adair opened the new location in Trussville in October during his daughter and wife’s recovery.
“2017 has been an eventful year,” he said. “But it has been good too in a lot of tough ways. It was also a year of growing in a relationship with the Lord and seeing miracles happen. We all want to see miracles. Christians, especially want to see miracles. We want to see
miracles in our churches. We want to see miracles in our families. We just don’t want to be that miracle.
I’m ready to move forward and see what this year will bring. The biggest thing is to get my wife healthy again. My daughter is on her way.”
