Lets get you back on the road quickly and safely.
Serving customers in San Diego California since 1992, Ability Auto Body and Paint is San Diego’s leading independently-owned auto body repair facility.

We believe that the customer's experience begins from the moment that they pick up the phone to seek out an auto body repair estimate, and it is our staff's goal to make that repair experience a pleasant one.

Our facility is ICAR Gold certified, which means we are recognized for the highest level of trained technicians in the industry. This is how we are able to ensure the highest level of quality work on your repairs.

Our shop is staffed with four auto body repair technicians: two  car painters and two painter's helpers. Our staff has a combined thirty years of experience.
The auto body shop staff takes special pride in their repair work and is always ready to discuss their approach to every auto body repair project, ranging from the simplest scratch to the most complex collision repair. Three of the technicians proudly hold ICAR certification and training, and one technician is ASE certified. Additionally, the front office staff also includes one ICAR trained technician.
Our friendly staff is trained and our certified technicians are dedicated to taking the extra time and effort to ensure your vehicle is repaired properly.

Our Auto Body Repair Philosophy

Our services begin with a fast, efficient and professional estimation process. The estimation process is available on a walk in basis or by appointment to meet customer needs.

All auto body repair estimates are done using CCC Pathways estimating program, but, as with other services, body shop repair estimates are based on the judgment and skill of highly trained and experienced professionals with decades of experience. Our combination of personalized service supported by state of the art technology allows us flexibility to meet all of our client's unique needs. We aim to provide estimates that not only meet the client's needs to properly (and safely) repair their vehicle, but also to be competitive in today's economic climate.

Our spacious and modern shop is composed of 10,000 square feet of indoor and 15,000 square feet of outdoor work space. Additionally, customers enjoy ample parking.

The large indoor space allows for secure and safe housing of all vehicles both during and after the repair process. In addition, the shop is monitored seven days a week, 24 hours a day by Super Circuits security video.

The shop is equipped with a myriad of modern equipment that is at the disposal of our technicians and other staff:

  • Frame unibody pulling systems
  • MFG Chief EZ liner S5
  • Frame/unibody measuring systems (Genesis Computerized and trams)
  • Anchoring Sys/Power (Post /Mfg.)
  • Two Lincoln Electric power MIG 2005
  • Fire prevention system
  • PPG factory quality painting system
  • Fully equipped spray booth

If you’re looking for a place that you can trust to successfully repair and refinish your car or truck, give us a call and let us show you why customers throughout San Diego County won’t take their vehicles anywhere else.

Speed, Accuracy, Ease
Ability Auto Body and Paint believes that: “There is no excuse for poor quality”. That is why we have remained independent, allowing for the type of personalized attention you can only receive from a non-chain auto body repair shop.
You want you car back fast, and we know that very well. We also know how much of an inconvenience it is to have a car accident. We continually improve our training, technology and processes to make our shop one of the fastest auto body repair shops in the San Diego area.
Why should you have your vehicle repaired at Ability Auto Body and Paint?

You need a license to drive a car, to practice medicine, even to cut hair. You do not need a license to cut open a car and fix someone’s collision damage. Frightening thought isn’t it? All Ability Auto Body and Paint technicians are required to go through annual training and are welding-certified. This means we’re better prepared to repair your vehicle correctly on time, every time.

Guaranteed quality for life
Through our limited lifetime warranty, all of our auto body repairs are guaranteed for as long as you own the vehicle.
