About Us

Nelson Bekkering founded Bekkering's Automotive in Hemet, CA in 1960 after serving in the United States Army and earning a Purple Heart for his service in World War II. After 13 successful years in business Nelson decided to move his business and family to Spokane, WA because of his love for the Northwest.

The year was 1973 and Bekkering's Automotive opened their doors at the "Y" off of North Division. Bekkering's has been servicing customers in Spokane and the greater surrounding areas ever since with honest business practices, professional automotive repair and unmatched customer service. Customers come to Bekkering's because it's where "Quality Costs Less."

After Nelson's passing in 2002, Bekkering's operation was turned over to members of his family. Nelson's son-in-law, Virgil Sellers (until his passing) as well as Nelson's daughter, Wanda Cox, took primary roles to ensuring Bekkering's legacy as well as many key employees who have been part of the Bekkering's "family" for years and years. The owners, mechanics, and staff all look forward to earning and maintaining your business.
