About Our Garage


It started 3 generations ago.

Three generations ago before Hwy 280 existed, Bruce’s grandfather started a small service station on family property in Chelsea, AL. Today 280 Auto Service conveniently stands in the same area.



Service since 1987

BRUCE SALSER is the son of an auto mechanic. Few people can claim, as Bruce does, to have over fifty years experience in auto mechanics.

Bruce is more than a mechanic. When you walk in his shop and describe your problem, his decades of experience kicks into high gear. Almost instantly, he will give you the diagnosis, prognosis, and the best course of treatment so your four wheel baby will have a full recovery.
