Each of our employees are trained to be at forefront of automotive technology.

Green Practices

Our BASF paint products utilize less solvent in the base therefore emitting less pollutants in the air while spraying. Less trash is created with the use of PPS liners in our spray guns. A small liner is thrown out instead of large non-compostable plastic cups.

Our Facility

South Point Collision is housed in a state of the art facility featuring a down draft spray booth, a bake booth to help cure paint more rapidly and a hoist. Paint is cured at one-hundred and sixty degrees for fifteen minutes to help protect the clear coat. The shop can accommodate six to eight cars at a time. We cut down the turn around time by maximizing our efficiency and completing your vehicle repairs the right way, the first time around.
