ABOUT US

About Us

who we are

Company

Westcoast Autobody is committed to providing our customers with surpassing quality in collision repair and claims handling. That is why we offer a lifetime warranty on all repairs.

Experience Counts! With over 45 years of experience in auto body shop repair, auto restoration, and painting in the automobile repair industry, you are guaranteed a quality job the first time. With professionally trained staff, we make the repair process easy for you, from towing your car to getting your car back to its original look and feel.

Leadership

Westcoast Autobody has been serving customers since 1997, but Ernie, the owner, has been working on cars professionally his whole life.

He started when he teamed up with his dad in the garage at 11. By the time he was 15 he was a fully capable “body man” and at 21, he owned his own shop in Los Angeles and has never looked back. Taking something broken and making it whole again, and seeing the stunned smiles on customer’s faces give him a deep satisfaction that keeps him coming back for 45 years.

The Facts

understand the process

The following list should give you a basic understanding of the laws and precautions around auto body work.
  • There is no law requiring you to obtain more than one estimate or appraisal.
  • You have the right to go to the repair shop of your choice. Your insurance cannot require you to go to a particular shop. It’s your car. It’s your decision.
  • NEVER drive a car that could be unsafe because of damages.
  • Some insurance companies may want you to visit their drive-in claims center before having your car repaired. You can bring it to the auto body shop of your choice to have the car inspected by the insurance there instead of going to where they want you to go.
  • Your car is your second largest investment you’re likely to make. Preserve its value and your safety by having it repaired professionally.
  • Differences in repair estimates are common. A lower estimate may not include all necessary work. If you’re not sure why one estimate is different from another you’ve received, please ask us.
  • Choose a shop that has unibody equipment and certified technicians (by i-Car or ASE, for example).
  • Ask if the shop offers a repair warranty. FYI, insurance companies DO NOT guarantee the repairs (they only pay for the repairs). ONLY the auto body shop may offer the guarantee. Let us help you negotiate your claim with the insurance company.
