AUTO REPAIR SHOP IN BEAVERTON
A PASSION TURNS INTO BUSINESS
The story of Bassitt Auto Co. is the story of how one man turned a lifelong hobby into a thriving car repair shop and auto service company in Beaverton.
In 1971, Craig Bassitt started working on friend’s cars in his Lake Grove garage, part time. His friends told other friends and soon, due to neighbor’s complaints about cars all over the street, Craig decided to move to the Helvetia area.
Demand continued to grow so he built a pole building on that property around 1978. Customers were willing to drive for miles to have Craig work on their cars. Demand kept growing, so Craig devoted himself to servicing autos full time. Outgrowing the pole building, Craig, with employees by this time, moved into a Quonset hut off of the Sunset Hwy in 1984. Finally, he settled on his present location in 1990. The passion that fueled Craig Bassitt is still there and has been infused into every employee.
