WHO WE AREUncle Al’s Automotive is a family-owned business, serving you since 1996.
Owner Alan Anderson grew up in the Milwaukie area and worked at several auto repair shops in Milwaukie and Oregon City in the early 1990’s. His interest in anything with an engine only grew with each experience. In 1996, he ventured out on his own and founded Uncle Al’s Mobile Auto & Marine Service. It was such a success, he needed to expand after one year. That’s when he took over Beta Automotive in Gresham. By the end of 1998, he was looking to expand once again. In the spring of 1999, he purchased the building where Uncle Al’s Automotive now sits, near the heart of downtown Gladstone.
But it wasn’t an easy move! The building, which was originally a carriage shop in the early part of the century, needed a lot of work. Alan spent the next seven years doing renovations, including gutting parts of the building and moving or expanding service bays. In the lobby today, you’ll see an architectural rendering for the front of the existing building that was developed during that time.
In 2016, Alan’s business continued to evolve as he began to take on parts and service for Yamaha YXZ side-by-sides. He is now recognized across the country for his skills in building, repairing and servicing YXZ’s for everything from high-stakes races to fun family trips.
Alan is an ASE Certified Master Automobile Technician, which signifies the highest, most stringent standards of auto repair excellence.
He is married to Kelsey and has three beautiful daughters, who keep him on his toes! As a family, they enjoy playing in the sunshine, boating and soaking in the beautiful moments God gives us every day.
