Now into our sixth decade, we have consistently earned the reputation of being the area’s leader when it comes to collision repair. Experience has always been our most valuable asset--which when combined with the latest technology available, a state-of-the-art facility and on-going, intensive and regular training; our business continues to grow.

St. Marys Auto Body has been a part of the Buerk family since 1953 under the ownership of Chris Buerk who sold it to his brother Philip, in 1965. Phil ran the shop with his two sons, John and Bob, until 1986 when it was sold to Bob and Sandy Buerk. With new and aggressive ownership, the business has become recognized as one of the top 5% of shops in the United States. In 1996, the old body shop was removed and replaced with a brand new facility allowing for continued growth. With a top notch staff in place, the growth has been outstanding-forcing the shop into another expansion bringing the size to 12,000 square feet.

The shop now houses the most modern metal, paint and frame departments around. The focal point, though, is the 1,100 square foot professional development center which is used as a training center for multiple purposes. Our customer waiting area is second to none. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting with separate men's and ladies' restrooms which are kept extremely clean and tidy. The kids will enjoy their wait while playing with the various toys available for their pleasure. Privacy is something we all want to protect so we have included a separate estimating office where you can be seated and discuss your needs confidentially with one of our estimators.

As you can see, we've come a long way and as we continue to pioneer new ideas and programs. Our ultimate goal is still simple--we will restore your vehicle ensuring your family's safety while exceeding your expectations. That's it! Our customers are really all that matters-we will do whatever we can to provide you with the best auto body repairs and we will continue to fine tune our operation to remain #1.

Thanks for visiting our website and we hope you will take a few minutes to stop by and visit us in person whenever you have the opportunity. We would love to give you a tour of our facility and show you what we have to offer.
