About Us

Bradshaw’s is a Portland-based and family owned business established in 1938. That’s over 75 years of professional automotive repair and service to the greater Portland, Oregon community. We pride ourselves on Eco-friendly car repairs, explained by a friendly staff in transparent terms that you can understand. Bradshaw’s uses OE or equivalent parts and quick turnarounds. We are a full-service auto repair shop, backed by a 2 year 24,000 mile nationwide warranty. We always put the customer and their needs first because satisfied customers are the foundation of what makes our business successful.

All of your customer vehicle records are kept in one place on the latest, up-to-date computer software. At Bradshaw’s, we respect that all of our great customers have different ways that they prefer to contact and be contacted, so we have the technology to accommodate and communicate in many different mediums. Contact us via our website, phone, email, or text to receive a free estimate. If you would like to see your old parts, that’s no problem - just ask when dropping off your car.

  • For our New Age tech savvy customers, we can now email or text you with inspection reports, estimates, pictures, and video links to help you understand exactly what repairs or parts your car needs and WHY. This way you can make an informed decision on all needed repairs.
  • For our Old School customers, we still keep several phone lines open for contact. We are more than happy to explain over the phone or in person any needed car repairs and estimates. We can even sketch out a picture for you when you pick your car up.

After being in business for 75 years, we’ve learned a thing or two about working on your car. We work on most foreign and domestic car models, and if we don’t work specifically on your make of vehicle, we know someone who does. We have been certified as an Oregon ECO-BIZ facility. We helped build Portland into this beautiful city and we want to keep it that way. We contain and dispose of all fluids properly, and we maintain strict rules on recycling all possible materials.

We are authorized to maintain your warranty by performing factory scheduled services on your new vehicle. We are an AAA and ASE certified repair facility. Our technicians are highly skilled, ASE certified, and trained to work on both domestic and foreign makes and models. Our customers are very loyal and understand that us performing maintenance when it’s due is always cheaper than waiting for a real problem to arise. It saves you money and time, and it adds it to the life and value of your car.

Our History

Bradshaw's was established in 1938. Bradshaw's set the standard for auto repair and transmission rebuilds in the Portland area. News traveled fast that Bradshaw's was the place to take your vehicles for repairs, and good advise. Bradshaw's vision was to create a neighborhood shop where local residents and businesses could take their cars and know they are in good hands.

An honest auto repair shop that would listen to customers and "Fix what the customer brought their vehicle in first and foremost the first time." We never lose sight of the fact that a satisfied customer is what built our business and continues to bring back customers time and time again.

As a pioneer in the auto repair business Bradshaw's quickly became a pioneer in the transmission repair business also. In 1958 Bradshaw's expanded adding a transmission rebuilding center.

Then in 1981 the original building needed to be expanded again to accommodate the automotive and transmission departments. The new building was built over the original building that still exists today. We recently expanded and opened a second location where the Transmission Annex is now located.

You can still find Bradshaw's located on the original corner doing business with the same values that made Bradshaw's the most trusted shop in Portland.
