About First Aid Auto

First Aid Auto of Asheville is family owned and operated, and was founded by Doug Mielke and his son-in-law, Jason Tarves. 80% of the employees are family members as well.

For nearly 20 years our technicians have honed their unique skills servicing over 25 auto dealerships in Western North Carolina, including Skyland Automotive, BMW of Asheville, Appletree Honda, Jim Barkley Toyota, Asheville Chevrolet, Auto Advantage, and more to be listed here soon!  Working on thousands of cars of every make and model, our technicians are not only seasoned veterans but hired as skilled specialists. Our processes and materials have been field tested as well. First Aid Auto’s brand new 4500 sq. ft., state of the art facility now allows us to offer this same quality and expertise to the public.

Because our repairs focus on only the damaged area, our impact on your vehicle and the environment are minimal. Our unique spot blending allows us to cut emissions and use of hazardous materials as much as 98%! Our paintless dent removal system repairs dents with no waste and is 100% environmentally clean! This approach is not only “green” friendly: It minimizes the repair area to your vehicle and maintains your auto’s trade and resale value!

Most of our repairs can be completed in an hour or two. In many cases you can wait while we repair your vehicle. Or just drop it off and we can call you when it is ready. Our goal is to always provide same day service to you and your family.

Our spacious and comfortable waiting area offers complimentary refreshments, workspace with wi-fi access, television and a children’s area. We also provide a free shuttle for you whether to the airport or shopping until your vehicle is ready.
