Beaverton Auto Repair & Mechanics
Passion Turns Into Business
Bassitt Auto Co. is the story of how one man's lifelong hobby and passion turned into a successful auto repair shop.
In 1971, as a part-time hobby, Craig Bassitt worked on friends' cars in his home garage. Word spread and soon Craig spent all his spare time working on cars. After numerous complaints from neighbors about the number of cars all over the street, he decided to move to the Helvetia area to make auto repair his full-time career.
Craig opened Bassitt Auto Co, a full-service auto repair shop, in 1978. Customers drove for miles to service their vehicles. Demand continued and in 1984, the business outgrew the Helvetia location and moved to Quonset Hut off Sunset Highway. Craig's passion and dedication continued over the years, allowing the business to grow and set roots at its current location in 1990, where every employee embodies the same joy and devotion embraced by the business's founder.
