Established in 2009

Gary Peterson (the owner) started working at P.C. Sacchi's (a local Chevrolet Dealership) right out of High School.  He quickly worked his way up to working in the bodyshop.  After 13 years with P.C. Sacchi's, they sold the business in 2002, to another local Chevrolet Dealership, Opie's Chevrolet and Buick, Gary then became the Manager of the bodyshop.  After 7 years, Opie's Chevrolet and Buick decided to downsize due to the economy, so the dealership gave Gary the opportunity to take it over.  Gary and his wife, Sheila, started Peterson's Collision Repair in 2009, with just one employee, Gary's brother Dennis.  The business has grown and now has 4 employees plus Gary and Sheila.

Gary has been working on cars since a very young age.  Cars are a hobby and a passion for him.  He still enjoys it today.  There are many days when he is in the shop working on your cars.
