Artistic Auto Body’s roots can literally be traced back to this garage! Our founder, Terry Mostul, began buying and repairing cars here after college, and eventually realized that he had the beginnings of a business when people started calling and asking if he could do repairs.
Thus, Artistic Auto Body was created and Terry was able to open his first shop which was only 1600sq ft but a big step up in the right direction. Artistic Auto Body foundation was developed: restoring peace of mind by delivering quality auto body repairs and exceptional customer service.
By 1988 Artistic Auto Body was growing, so the decision was made to start hiring employees and expand from the current space into an adjacent space making it a total of 7,700sqft of shop.
Again, a few years down the road Artistic Auto Body continued to grow and word of the quality repairs was beginning to create a loyal following of customers who trusted the Artistic Auto Body brand. Terry expanded his shop another 2500sq. ft.
Artistic Auto Body had become more successful than Terry could have ever imagined! As Terry’s family grew, so did the business. Needing more room he began looking for additional space.
In 1996, Artistic Auto Body expanded and opened a second shop located in Wilsonville. We were very fortunate to have a great team to help start the Wilsonville shop, many of whom are still there to this day.
Finally in 1997 Artistic Auto Body came to its current home. The property was purchased in Tigard right off of Highway 217 and by 1998 we took over the entire building expanding from 16,000sq ft to 32,000sq ft!
In the spring of 2007 Artistic Auto Body met demand by adding yet another 14,000sq ft to the Tigard shop, allowing for repair segmentation and speedier repair process times. By the fall Artistic entered into an agreement with Buzz Braley, the owner of Braley & Graham Auto Mall and expanded our operations by taking over their body shop.
We are celebrating our 30th year in business and we could not be more thrilled! Thank you all so much for your continued trust and business. We couldn’t have made it this far without our loyal customers.
