Being Detailed - With everything, pay attention to the small things, because every detail matters. All of these little things add up, and make us work harder for perfection every day. We promise that if you start noticing the little things, you'll notice big results.

Being Efficient - This shop runs on a time-based system, rather than flat-rate. This is uncommon for companies like ours. This means that the efficiency of the team comes secondary to the quality of the job. If we are efficient, it will pay off. If we are efficient in small ways several times over, they add up. See where we are going with this?

Being Reliable - Collectively we've been doing auto body repair, windshield replacement, chip repair, and custom painting for over 30 years, and we will use the knowledge that we gain daily to improve the way we operate. Remember, it takes that long to build up a good reputation, and only one botched job to lose it.

Being Leaders - Always make sure we are searching for the best possible way to to get the job done. If we know we are the best and we act the best, our customers will see that.


Born and raised in Rouveen, Albert and nephew Klaas' upbringing had much to do with the business and work ethic they portray today. Both of their fathers live up to a "hard work pays-off" philosophy, and many of their siblings and extended family have successful auto-related businesses in the Rouveen area today.
