RADAir in Garfield Heights
While some symbols of success in today’s automobile might include trendy gizmos and gadgets that make a glove box transform into a treasure chest with secret compartments, a license plate light up like a 4th of July evening sky, a voice-activated GPS system calmly state you’ve just missed your exit, or a built-in DVD player suspended from the car’s ceiling playing the latest cartoon and capturing the attention of moon-eyed toddlers, there is but one essential component that every car owner knows he absolutely must have above and beyond all else – the venerable auto mechanic.
For the residents of and visitors to the Garfield Heights area, Rad Air is that revered and highly-sought-after complete car care center.
Like car dealerships, fast food restaurants, pizza parlors, and convenient stores ~ auto mechanic shops seem to be on most every corner (or at least telltale signs of one in many private driveways). Finding that one diamond in the rough, that one irreplaceable, down-to-earth, organized, passionate, approachable, knowledgeable, articulate, 21st century auto mechanic with old-fashioned family values and business pride is like finding that one barber that always styles it just the way you like it, that one babysitter that the kids run to (instead of from), that one meat cutter that saves the best portions for your Saturday night backyard brouhaha, and that one baker from whom you order all your cakes for all your family celebrations – once you’ve found that particular professional who gets it right every time, all the time, you never, ever, look elsewhere.
And that’s how it is for the loyal and satisfied patrons of Rad Air.
Established in 1975 in Parma Heights as a car radiator and air conditioning repair shop, Rad Air has expanded over the years into a AAA-approved, high-tech, total automotive repair center with ASE-certified technicians cross-trained and skilled in ABS Brake Systems/Brakes, Drive-ability/Tune-Up concerns, Electrical/Electronic Repairs, E-Check failure repairs, Fluid Services, Tires/Suspension issues, and of course ~ air conditioning systems and cooling/radiator systems.
They troubleshoot, diagnose, and provide repair services not only on imported and domestic cars, SUVs, and light trucks, but also on motor homes! (Perhaps it would be simplest to state what they DON’T do ~ windows, dishes, and motorcycles!) Now with 8 locations throughout the Cleveland/Akron market, the techs at Rad Air have become the world-class neighborhood mechanics-of-choice listed in every client’s cell phone!
While Rad Air is locally-owned and family-operated, they employ a team of top-notch, highly-skilled managers to provide leadership, cutting-edge initiatives, and strategically-mapped directives at their 8 branch locations.
Andy Fiffick, General Manager of all 8 Rad Air Complete Car Care locations, is proud of the many accomplishments of both his team members and the business, in general. “All Rad Air facilities pride themselves on the fact that we are the first in our industry to offer many programs. We’re the first chain of auto repair facilities to provide no charge loaner vehicles and shuttle services! The first to offer “Fixed for Life” Warranties! The first to be trained on Hybrid repairs and maintenance! The first with a Car Care Club and the first with Free Towing Programs!”
In addition to these unique industry-setting trends, Rad Air is approved by Triple A, has earned the ASE Blue Seal Shops of Excellence ranking, an “A+” rating from the BBB, and the Rad Air of repair shops is the only chain in the state of Ohio to be certified by US EPA for environmentally-friendly and professional air conditioning services and repair practices!
Eric Spape, Manager of Rad Air in Garfield Heights, is one such particular professional who, with his team of mechanics, has been getting it right for an ever-growing portfolio of clients for years now. Initially brought on board for his skills and experience in automotive service, Eric commenced his career with Rad Air in 1991 as an Apprentice Technician.
As a direct result of his exceptional technical skills, demonstrated commitment to exceed client expectations, and ability to lead, train, and empower others, Eric earned numerous kudos and promotions with Rad Air ~ including his most recent promotion to Facility Manager in 2008.
