Family owned and operated since 1877

For the last 140 years—over four generations—we've been providing quality, honest automotive repair and paint services to our Oakland community. From horse-drawn carriages to the latest in electric vehicles, it's no exaggeration to say that our shop has witnessed the entire evolution of the automobile.

We first opened our doors in 1877, and are proud to be the oldest family-owned and operated auto body shop west of the Mississippi River. Simply put, our reputation means everything to us. Without it we surely wouldn't have lasted this long. Let us show you what our commitment to customer service looks like.

I can honestly say the customer service at this shop is nothing less than outstanding! They have a long history as an Oakland auto body shop and they have kept the old school idea of taking care of the customer... something that is hard to find these days.

Their customer service is phenomenal. They are a family business and they clearly take pride in customer loyalty. I hope I won’t need their services in the future, but if I do, I’ll definitely go back!

Professional staff that has your best interest as priority. They will make sure you get the best service and they will even protect you from sketchy moves by your insurance company. They are always easy to reach, patient with explanations, they move the process swiftly and keep you informed.

As a small business owner myself, I value businesses with high ethics, good customer service and communication, as well as superior workmanship. I am pleased to find them all at Arth & Son.
