Tripp's Auto Shop & Collision Centers

  • Print

We do complete collision repair — from a major car accident to a mirror that comes off your windshield. If I can help you, I'm going to. If you need a lightbulb changed (we can do that). Most things, if I can do it in a half hour or less, I don't charge. We do a ding, a dent, a polish. We do glass repair on vehicles, windshields and door glass.

We are committed to providing the BEST quality service. We are Michigan's leader in truck, trailer, heavy equipment and RV Collision repair.

We specialize in collision repair, sandblasting, painting, and frame straightening and repair. We do collision repair on and paint buses, fire trucks and emergency vehicles.

The Right Repair is No Accident! We are your best value & pay up to $500 of your insurance deductible!

Q&A with Phil Tripp, Owner

There are about 130,000 auto repair companies in the United States with a combined annual revenue of $65 billion.

In 1988, Phil Tripp started The Auto Shop in a garage with two other people. More than 20 years later, the repair shop has grown to a multimillion-dollar operation that employs 27 people. The business started in Vandercook Lake before moving in 2000 to its current location at 2999 W. Michigan Ave. The shop has gone through four expansions since then. Five years ago, The Auto Shop changed to Tripp's Auto Shop. Freelance writer Shannon Maynard recently sat down with Tripp to discuss the business.

Question: What makes Tripp's Auto Shop and Collision Center unique?

P.T.: You know me. People know us. We're from here. You're treated in a comfortable manner. Our goal is to do what's best for you, even if not spending any money might be what's best for you. I try to be as honest as possible with somebody, even if it's information that they don't want to know. We try to make it customer-friendly. We make popcorn fresh every day, and we have pop and water for our customers.

Customers Come First!
