About Younique Automotive Service Center Chico, CA

Younique Automotive Service was originally opened in 1979 as Gary Younie Truck and Auto Repair. The shop earned a reputation for quality work and honest service for decades. In 2006, the ownership changed over to long time employee and ASE master technician, Craig Crouch. The name was changed to Younique Automotive Service Center to reflect the legacy of the previous ownership and to carry on the same values of quality and reliability that the shop had become known for. They are committed to their vision of “Excellence in Maintenance Keeps You on the Road”.

As owner, I come from a long line of mechanics. So becoming a mechanic tradesman and journeyman was a natural choice for me. I also enjoy helping and people doing a good job. When the opportunity arose for me to buy this business I felt it was a handing of the baton and I had a sense of duty to uphold the standards and responsibilities that this shop stood for among its customers and its employees. I retained the staff that the previous owner had, and desired to continue to grow the business for many years to come.
