Trusted within the Industry

We work hand-in-hand with several high-end, Sarasota area car dealerships. We do repairs to dealership vehicles along with custom work such as painting nameplates and running boards. They also refer their customers to us for collision repair because they know the quality of our work.

Car guys in the auto industry trust us to work on their vehicles for both collision and restoration work.

It’s the law. You have a choice of auto repair shops.

You have a choice! When it comes to selecting a shop for collision repair it’s your choice—it’s Florida state law. Auto insurance companies may direct you to a more “cost effective” auto body shop they prefer working with, but you have the option of selecting the shop of your choice. You’re not required to go to the shop your insurance company suggests.

• Insurance companies are looking out for their bottom line.
• We look out for you and provide the best quality service possible.
• We believe in quality over the bottom line.

Community Involvement

We provide real-word experience for area technical college students by providing them with paid internships while they’re in school.

Unconditional Surrender Statue Touch-up

Unconditional Surrender,the iconic statue on Sarasota’s shore, needed a touch-up. Through word-of-mouth, the statue’s curator in California found Gulf Coast and contracted them to do the repair work.

“Sarasota has been very good to me and supporting my business. This is one way I can give back to the community.”—Joe Kuchera, Owner
