When Bob Haskett started Bob’s Mobil Repair in 1984, he actually was a “mobile” mechanic. Loaded with tools and his dog Turbo in his Ford van, he would travel to a customer’s home or business and repair their vehicles. Business grew, and Bob upgraded his mobile repair vehicle to a Metro step van, and business continued to grow. He rented a space at an auto body shop for larger repairs. The need for a larger, stable facility only became more apparent, and Bob traded in his mobile repair van for a shop location at 1081 Sonoma Boulevard in 1989.
When Bob was in high school, he got a job pumping gas at a local station in Benicia. He started taking an auto repair class in school, and soon, he was doing minor repair work at the station. After graduating from Benicia High in 1975, he attended Solano College for three years where he took classes in the automotive trade.
In 1978, he was hired at Kaiser Steel in Napa working on heavy equipment. Bob found himself at a crossroads when confronted with a major layoff at the company, and thus he began Bob’s Mobil Repair!
Bob has been married to his wife, Jeanette, since 1981. He enjoys traveling, fishing, and helping people.
Darryl, our Service Writer, brings S.W.S.(service with a smile). He has 20 years of experience in customer service. Happily married for 5 years. His preferences are-J.P.J.(jazz-people-jokes). Be ready for his acronyms and similes. Stop by and find out why you are like Jello in the refrigerator.
Susan brings 17 years of customer service experience to the team at Bob's along with her Associates Degree in accounting. Susan enjoys painting, classical music, and foreign films. Her idea of going fishing is eating sushi.
In December 2012 we adopted a German shepherd puppy. Many of you gave us suggestions as to what we should name him and we want to thank you. After much consideration we decided to name him “Boaz” which means “In Strength” and now that he is 75lbs it fits him well! He is of Czech descent and has Schutzhund 1, 2 and 3 titles in his line. He has been coming to work with me so feel free to stop in and meet Boaz.
