Teamwork Is the Priority at This Northeast Ohio Auto Repair Shop

When you leave Rad Air’s auto repair shop in Medina, you are handed a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar. This isn’t your ordinary Hershey bar; the wrapper features a specialized message to clients from the Rad Air team.

Contains 100% pure thanks

Best when shared

Pounds of gratitude

Warning: Overuse may cause you to smile. 

This tradition, which dates back more than 20 years, is indeed designed to make clients smile, as well as to make them feel truly appreciated. Rad Air of Medina, a full-fledged automotive repair facility focused on auto electrical work and drivability issues, knows that clients have many choices for their vehicle repair services. They aim to give Medina residents the best possible experience when they choose their shop.

To the shop’s manager, Chuck Melinsky (who has worked with Rad Air since 1982 and relocated to the new Medina location in 1999), putting clients first means offering honest advice and fair prices. Chuck also tells his automotive technicians to treat every vehicle with the same care as if it were their own. 

What else differentiates Rad Air of Medina from other repair shops? Chuck and his team are known for their “One Day Service,” which means the team strives to have clients’ cars serviced and back into their garage in just one day. The Medina shop also services fleet vehicles and prioritizes the vehicles of handicapped citizens, offering them first priority service.


Never a Dull Moment at Rad Air of Medina

Chuck has been with Rad Air for nearly 40 years, and spending that amount of time at an auto repair shop comes with its own stories. Take the time that his team serviced a Mercury Mountaineer that had been driven into a pond. Water drained out of the oil pan for more than 10 minutes before any actual oil came out.

Or, recently, his technicians discovered a nest of baby mice inside the AC system of a client’s vehicle. The mice had made their way through the ventilation system and eaten a big hole in the cabin filter. 

There is no such thing as a “normal day” in the Rad Air of Medina shop, and the team is well equipped to work closely together to solve even the most unusual automotive problems. As Chuck says, “Teamwork is our philosophy.” When one technician is working on a car, there are always two other technicians that oversee the job to make sure it’s done right. 

This commitment to teamwork and high-quality service is what sets Rad Air of Medina apart. Chuck looks for qualified individuals who exemplify this same commitment to join his shop’s team. Rad Air of Medina is currently hiring certified technicians as well as apprentices. All technicians are taught in-house, with additional education provided through specialized classes.

Chuck looks forward to the next opportunity to welcome you to Medina’s Rad Air for your car repair service. Just don’t forget to pick up your Hershey’s bar on the way out!
