Andy’s Auto Supply & Repair—Your Portland, OR Car Repair Stop
We are a small independent shop, with 3 bays and outdoor hoist, operating at the same location for 39 years. We believe that there is enough needed repair business out there that we don’t have to resort to upselling recommended services that aren’t really needed. Because we own our own facility and equipment, we have low overhead that translates into saving you, our customer, money.
We offer FREE loaner cars for in town driving while your car is being repaired. (Just replace the gas that you use.)
We are dedicated to good honest repairs. With our back parking lot, we have 6,000 square foot of fenced in parking, monitored with security cameras.
Andy Meschke bought from Bill Taylor the Texaco Gas Station and general maintenance and started Andy’s Super Service in 1948. Located right next door was Matson’s garage. George Matson Senior and Andy became very good friends & worked well together servicing SE Portland’s cars and trucks. In 1969, Chuck Greenough started working for Andy off and on until one day Andy at 67 years old said he wanted to retire & sold Andy’s Super Service to Chuck in 1975. George Matson Jr. & Chuck also became good friends and working well together. George Jr. went out of business and Chuck took over the repair garage.
This was still the day of the do-it-your-selfer. People would come to Chuck to borrow tools and ask for repair advice. They also would bring in jobs partly taken apart and ask for help putting them back together. We call these “Basket Cases”. People needed help locating parts for differentials, transmissions, window regulators, and things the local part store could not find or did not have. Chuck is very successful at finding those hard to find parts. Customers stated saying Chuck can supply and repair your problems. Chuck decided to change the name still honoring Andy but reflective of his business model hence the name change to Andy’s Auto Supply & Repair, in 1981.
In 1983, Rick Lachney came to work for us as a technician and quickly proved to be very accurate and conscientious. He later became Shop Forman. Eventually, becoming General Manager, where he is to this day. You will most likely be seeing him greeting you at the front counter.
