When a local Christian ministry closed the doors to its automotive repair shop, provided for its employees, two of the shop's technicians decided that a shop with integrity and Christian servanthood in mind was simply too important to see disappear from the area. They branched out on their own, and formed Able Auto Service located off of Military Highway on English Avenue in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

In 1985, Roy Jordan joined the Able Auto team as a technician with many years of experience, after relocating into the Virginia Beach area. Roy became a part-owner in 1987 and later became the sole owner. In 1993, Able Auto moved from English Avenue to it's new property and current location at 736 South Military Highway, in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

In 2004, Roy retired as Roy's son, Jeff, took the reigns of the business. Roy's wife, Sandra, continues to work full time in the office, taking care of the good customers and friends she has made over the years. Jeff and his wife, Angela, are proud to carry on the tradition of quality auto care in Hampton Roads.
