Technology and craftsmanship come together for superior auto body repair.

Who We Are

Body Builders Automotive is a family-owned and operated auto body repair shop that has been providing quality service to the Chicago Northwest Suburbs for over 40 years. Founded by brothers Michael and Patrick Phillippi in 1978, they started their business with a small garage, learning everything they could about the collision repair industry as they worked hard to provide customers with excellent results.

Today our facility boasts a state-of-the-art infrastructure spanning over 20,000 square feet, capable of accommodating both modern high-end vehicles and classics.

Cutting-Edge Tools & Equipment

Factory Certifications

More Important than Ever Before

Only 10% of all the collision repairers in the United States are certified to work on the vehicles they repair. By being a member of the Assured Performance Group, we have proven that Body Builders Automotive possesses the necessary equipment, tools and training to work on 2/3rd of all the automotive brand names in the marketplace today.

These include Tesla, Infiniti, Audi, Dodge, Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, Toyota and KIA.

As an identified, certified and supported O.E. repairer, Body Builders Automotive has all of the OEM credentials needed to fix today’s sophisticated vehicles. This requires a major investment in tools and training, and any other incremental performance criteria that have to be achieved before a body shop can proudly say “We’re certified!”

Before you ever sign on the dotted line with any collision repair specialist, ask about their factory certifications, as well as whether or not that they’re an I-CAR Gold body shop. To perform collision repair services in today’s world, certifications are no longer an option, so do your due diligence before trusting your vehicle with any auto body shop.
