Hires has been locally owned and operated by the Hire family since 1927, when the first store opened at 2030 Broadway by the late Aubrey “Doc” Hire. Doc sold the family piano to get enough money to pay the first month’s rent. The rest is history with two locations in the greater Fort Wayne area. Hires has a long and proud history of personal service provided by a family with deep roots in our community, and a deep commitment to upholding professional standards.


Since 1927, Hires has been repairing vehicles in Northeast Indiana, many of which have been commercial vehicles. From police departments to contractors, from factory fleets to delivery services, we have seen them all.
