Body Shop

The proper repair of collision damage is critical to the safety and performance of your vehicle. Each vehicle is repaired to factory specifications in our state-of-the-art collision repair facility.

Our highly skilled technicians use only the highest quality equipment, parts, and materials.

We utilize a computer based frame system. These frame racks are capable of multiple pulls, this is critical in returning your vehicle to its original factory specifications. Certified technicians restore the integrity of the frame or unibody to manufacturer's specifications using a laser measuring system. This is important, now more than ever, as the ever evolving and improving vehicle safety systems rely on the very specific dimensions and tolerances of the vehicles to react appropriately and at the right moment. Our equipment allows us to recreate the same type of welds in the unibody construction of vehicles both in number and location of the welds. This ensures that the repaired components of the vehicle are not too strong nor too weak compared to the original factory weld and the air bag speed will not be adversely affected, which can save lives and serious injury.

Sometimes mechanical components have been damaged or need to be removed to gain access to other damaged areas of your vehicle. We have all the necessary equipment to handle these mechanical repairs. We are equipped and able to handle any mechanical repairs including: Suspension, cooling, air conditioning, exhaust, air bags, seat belts, computerized diagnostics and much more.


Paint Shop

Many vehicle paints today are specialized, like 3-stage pearl coats and silver, bronze, and gold metallic. These paints require special systems and experienced automotive refinishers, in order to match the original factory finish. That’s why we use state-of-the-art painting system product lines from BASF. We use a water born system for newer vehicles and a solvent based system for the older vehicles. This allows us to best match that vehicles specific finish.
The paint systems that we utilize are constantly upgraded and our experienced painters are retrained when necessary to keep up with the changes in paint systems and techniques.

We match your vehicles finish in our paint mixing area. After selecting the correct paint formula, we then prepare your vehicle for paint by sanding and applying primer and sealer.

After painting and applying clear coat, your vehicle is baked at 180 degrees, to give the paint durability and a high gloss that will last for the life of your vehicle. Your vehicle's paint is then inspected and buffed to meet our quality standard.


Parts Department

Automotive parts are essential to most automobile repairs. That’s why we have a dedicated Parts Manager whose sole responsibility is to order, receive and distribute parts. We have established an excellent working relationship with the various parts vendors in the Tri-State Area. We work with the parts departments of local auto dealerships, who have locator software that allows them to find parts anywhere in the country. We have parts shipped overnight so that we can have them on site the next day. We will drive to the dealerships to retrieve parts so that we can have them the same day. This is just another way that Rt 17 Auto Body & Collision works to serve our customers’ needs and get them back into their own vehicle as soon as possible.
