While auto body shops in Idaho Falls like Classic Auto Collision Center focus on repairing the body or frame of a vehicle after it’s been involved in an accident, auto repair shops(mechanics) focus on repair and maintenance of engine components, electrical components and other parts that keep your vehicle up and running.

We do everything from light bumper damage to more complex damage-repair, and we work with all insurance companies.

Man Next to Vehicle - auto body repair idaho fallsAuto Repair or mechanical repair is the general term used to describe any type of repair on your vehicle and it’s what a normal auto repair shop provides. This includes fixing things like transmission issues, brake problems, tire changes, oil changes, etc. Auto Body Repair is the specific term used to describe repairing collision damage (auto accident). The process can be quite complicated but one thing it always involves is taking out all the broken parts and replacing them with new ones. Sometimes this requires metal welding before primer/paint goes on, other times it could simply require replacing a non-painted part.

But no matter what type of vehicle you have, you can rely on our auto body shop for accident restoration—we service all car owners. Car damage will most likely need more than one type of repair to get back to pre-accident conditions. It may require paint work, welding, dent removal and any other parts replacement needed.
