Samuels Automotive
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer

I visited with Alex Samuels and Cyrstal Wright, co-owners of Samuels Automotive, located at 898 Newmark Avenue in Coos Bay.  They’ve been open since November 4 of 2013.

Alex  said, “we specialize in Toyotas and other Asian cars, as well as some domestic. We are a full service automotive service shop. We also have a detail man who comes in.  And then there’s our U-Haul rentals.”

Although they’ve been open less than a year, Crystal says “we’ve been swamped with business; it’s been hectic. We get a lot of people coming in for brake jobs or our oil changes, which include tire rotations, a 30 point inspection, up to five quarts of oil, a filter, and all vital fluids topped off.”

Alex has been doing auto mechanic work ever since he owned his first car as a teenager.  In 2001 he moved to Wyoming and went to the Wyotech Automotive School and got his Associate’s Degree. He moved back to Coos Bay in 2003, and worked for several businesses around town, until he landed  a summer job at our local Toyota dealer and wound up working there as a mechanic for ten and a half years.   He is a certified auto technician. Crystal also worked at the dealership and when they got together, they decided to open their own place. “We were both born and raised here and went to school together.  We were really nervous when we first opened the business and had just a few customers, mostly friends.” Alex added, “but the community really came through for us, and here we’ve made it almost a year!”

Alex continued, “We’ve gotten quite a few customers from out of town. I’ve met people from Canada to New Jersey. It must be our location, close to the ocean. Empire is a very up-and-coming area. Being on Newmark, we’re on a pretty main artery that runs through Coos Bay and leads to our main attraction here, which is our beaches.”

Crystal said that they guarantee all their work and their parts. “We really work hard for our customers and make it right the first time. We stay late for our customers to make sure we get their vehicle back to them and get them on the road as soon as possible,” said Alex.

Samuels Automotive is open Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm, and every other Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm. Their phone number is 541-808-0450. Crystal finished with, “We intend to stay here, and I do see us expanding. We’re a family place, we’re pet friendly, and we’ll do our best so that you don’t have to keep coming back for auto work, just basic maintenance!”
