About Us - Baker's Auto Repair
In May of 1998, Jeff Baker established Bakerís Auto Repair Shop. The first repair facility was located right down the road from their present location, it consisted of two small bays and no lifts. The shop was small, but the rent was cheap. The original Bakerís Auto team only consisted of Jeff and his wife Sarah. Jeff took care of all the auto repair and Sarah handled all the billing and customer service. As a result of steady business growth, the Baker's outgrew their original location, in the spring of 2002 Bakerís Auto Repair moved to it's present location. This allowed them to provide better auto and transmission repair service to their Yakima Valley clients. In 2004, the Bakerís were able to woo Sarahís brother, Robert Murphy, into joining the Bakerís Auto Repair team. Still with them today, Jeff and Robert have discovered that in-laws can really work together. Chuck Strmiska was added to the team in 2008, adding tires and alignment expertise to an already knowledgeable and experienced Bakerís Auto Repair team.
