With the love of speed and working on cars since a young man, there was no doubt Charlie Davis would one day own an auto repair facility.  Davis Automotive, located at 709 Elm Street in Martin, Tennessee, is Weakley County’s largest auto repair business. Previously located across the street, Davis Automotive had outgrown their former location.  As a 34 year anniversary gift to each other, Charlie and his wife Karen purchased the former IGA/Save-a-Lot building.  After being vacant for many years, the 11,500 sq. ft. building required total renovation to bring Charlie’s dream to a reality.  The new location is a state of the art, complete auto repair facility. 

In the new location, the latest in equipment and diagnostic technology has been installed which includes tire mounting, alignment and rotation with state of the art Hunter Alignment System, in house transmission repair, complete computer diagnostics and repair of domestic, Asian and European vehicles. Providing amenities from oil changes to total engine repair, services are provided by ASE certified technicians with 3 obtaining Master Certification status, the highest level in the automotive industry.  With the repair business expanding services to meet local needs, Davis Automotive added the sale of light truck and passenger tires to the business.  With over 23 brands of tires available they are Weakley County’s largest tire dealer and Martin’s only NAPA Auto Care Center.

As the business continues to grow, Davis realized the need to take the business to the next level and improve the customer’s overall online experience so he contacted the TSBDC at the UT Martin REED Center and they provided Davis Automotive with guidance and counseling. Using these services has allowed the growing business to reach out to loyal customers and community members.  Davis Automotive is proud to be a local family owned business that actively supports local civic organizations, sports teams, churches and schools all across West Tennessee.  Charlie and Karen Davis feel the future is bright for Davis Automotive and are very glad to be partners with the TSBDC at the UT Martin REED Center.
