In Chilliwack, residents look to Craftsman Collision for auto body and collision repairs because we are the largest family owned and operated auto body and collision repair chain with 42 locations and offer award winning customer service and quality craftsmanship. Our loyal customers have made us their number one choice for auto body and collision repairs in BC. We are proud of the many accolades we have received over the years, particularly the Consumer Choice Award the past 16 years running for “Best Auto Body Repair” shop.
We’ve learned a lot over 41 years, but the one thing that has always held true is getting you and your family back on the road in a vehicle that not only looks great, but is safe to drive. Each of our locations offers quality collision repair services backed by Craftsman’s Lifetime Guarantee for as long as you own your vehicle. Craftsman’s car repair services include complete body work, frame straightening, dent removal, auto painting, scratch repair, hail damage and everything in between. Having the the latest technology enables us to specialize in repairing any internal damage to your vehicle – to ensure your car is as good as its pre-accident condition and meets all safety specifications set by the industry for your make and model.
Our caring attitude and excellent customer service extend to the communities in which we do business. For example, the company has donated a quarter of a million dollars to North Vancouver’s Lions Gate Hospital to help upgrade emergency room equipment. Additionally, we offer ongoing support for such other charities as the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Salvation Army, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and BC Institute of Technology (BCIT) Foundation and School of Transportation.
No one wants to think about having an accident. But if misfortune strikes you, we hope you’ll remember where to turn – and why.
You’ll be glad you did.
Armed with a diploma in business administration from the University of the Fraser Valley, Paul Kawaguchi has spent virtually all of his working life in the auto sector. After completing his formal schooling he joined a major car dealership in Hope as a business manager, then moved into several different roles including office/assistant manager at another collision repair company. In 2013 he joined the Craftsman family, starting as estimator at one of our two Abbotsford shops, then being promoted to assistant manager.
He is excited about his latest position as leader of our Chilliwack team.
“I bring a structured approach to the shop,” says Paul. “I’m well organized and try to instill that in the shop. I think we do an excellent job of keeping customers informed, and doing repairs in a timely manner.”
In his (not-so) spare time, Paul enjoys camping, golf and baseball, and volunteers as a coach with Chilliwack Minor Baseball and Chilliwack Minor Fastpitch.
