In May of 1998, Jeff Baker established Baker’s 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 Baker’s 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 Baker’s 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 Baker’s were able to woo Sarah’s brother, Robert Murphy, into joining the Baker’s 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 2007, adding tires and alignment expertise to an already knowledgeable and experienced Baker’s Auto Repair team.
Baker's Auto Repair team of highly experienced automobile technicians make them one of Yakima’s best engine and transmission repair facilities. Today, their 3300 square feet state of the art facility consists of four bays and lifts, including an alignment bay and lift. Equipped with today’s most advanced technological tools and equipment, Baker’s Auto Repair can handle anything from your engine and transmission repair to brakes and tires.

I was born and raised right here on the east side of Yakima it is because of my father that I learned to repair automobiles, he was in the ridge runner jeep club. As a result, I learned a lot about repairing 4 wheel drive vehicles (today I am an expert at four wheel drive) .I’m older now but I still love to play usually snowmobiling but I still enjoy jeeping, quad riding camping and of course working on automobiles. Robert is a ASE Master Certified Technician.
