When Terminal Auto Body first opened its doors more than 40 years ago, we were writing estimates with pencil and paper and researching repair information from printed books that were updated yearly.
From our safety-conscious modern perspective, it’s hard to believe that when Terminal Auto Body opened, many motor vehicles had yet to be equipped with seatbelts!
Of course, some of today’s vehicles drive themselves, and we’ve come a long way when it comes to vehicle repair technology.
Family-owned & Operated
Terminal Auto Body is a second-generation, family -owned and operated auto body repair business.
