Tony’s Auto Body Shop, Inc. is a second generation family run business that has been serving the colliding Washington metropolitan area since 1950. Unlike most major collision repairers in the area we have never participated in a direct repair relationship with any insurance company for a good reason. Those arrangements directly conflict with our old school business ethic of putting the customers’ best interests first. When an insurance company is sending a body shop volumes of crashed cars to repair, that insurance directed repair facility will always be required to watch out for the referring insurance company’s best interests. In other words, the insurance company becomes the body shop’s customer. That would translate to cutting costs wherever and whenever possible.
