Durrett Motor Company: About Us

Durrett Motor Company is an industry-leading used car dealer Houston can rely on for quality services. Durrett Motor Company is a National Certified Master Dealer, a Gold Star Member of the Better Business Bureau, a member of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Pearland Chamber of Commerce, Houston Automobile Dealers Association, Texas Automobile Dealers Association, National Association Of Buy-Here Pay-Here Dealers, & the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association.

Craig was raised in Pasadena. Craig married Paula, in 1977, after attending Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

His passion for cars is what brought him into the auto industry in 1977. His experience began with Giles Volkswagon-Volvo. He managed the fleet & lease department at Dutch Holland Oldsmobile, winning several awards for excellence in his field. In 1982, Craig joined Ron Craft Chevrolet, where he became General Sales Manager. Craig credits Ron Craft for his positive influence, & for sharing his valuable knowledge & experience in the automotive business. In 1983 Craig & Paula along with a partner, started Gulf Coast Wholesale, in South Houston. After a few years it was time to go on their own way. In November of 1986, Durrett Motor Company opened for business. Since then, the company has grown to become a trusted name among all Houston used car dealers.

Paula is active in many local professional groups such as the Association of Business & Professional Women. She is also a founding member of SEEN; the Southeast Express Network of the national organization ABWA (American Business Women’s Association). Her passion is volunteering for the Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a multifaceted crisis intervention agency that offers transitional & residential housing to families fleeing from domestic violence &/or sexual assault.

Durrett Motor Company has built a good, solid reputation as a used car dealer Houston clients rely on. The Durrett’s mission to improve the image of the “Used Car Dealer” has set them apart from other Houston used car dealers that choose not to “do it the right way”. They do what they say, say what they do, & they still believe in “doing business on a hand shake.”
