"Body Best Collision Center"
There is nothing more important to us than excellent customer service, and the public has taken notice. In 2008, Body Best Collision Center was #1 in Sonoma County with AAA Auto Insurance for Customer Service. In 2009, KRON 4 selected Body Best Collision Center for Best of the Bay.
We take every measure to ensure we provide exceptional car repair. With employees who are certified by ASE and I-CAR, four frame racks, and laser measuring systems, we guarantee your car will meet OEM specifications after the work is completed.
We are also committed to preserving our environment. Body Best Collision Center went green in 2009 with low-VOC European Waterborne paint. We paint all our cars in a European full downdraft heated spray booth and recycle extraneous parts.
Our customers have two vehicle options while theirs is in for repair: we offer loaners as well as rental cars via our in-house Hertz location.
Each car receives a full detail as the final process before delivery.
"Owner Dino DiGiulio and Family"
Dino DiGiulio, owner of Body Best Collision Center, grew up watching his dad repair cars in the garage. So it makes sense that Dino started fixing cars himself when he was just 14 years old. After he graduated from high school, he went to work in a body shop, detailing cars as he attended school for body repair.
Chasing the dream of owning his own body shop, Dino sank every penny he had when he opened Body Best Collision Center on 8th Street East in 1990. He was 21 years old and the humble 1,800-square-foot location housed just him and one other employee. But with the help of his wife, Trina, and his growing team of employees, Dino eventually expanded Body Best Collision Center to what it is today: a 12,500-square-foot shop with 12 employees.
Using the latest technology is important to Dino. Through the years, Dino has continued educating himself and his employees via training and certification programs like I-CAR and ASE. Investing in his auto body shop has been an ongoing venture as he continues to update and improve his equipment.
Dino takes just as much pride in seeing and touching the final product as witnessing the smiles on his customers’ faces. For this reason, Dino continues to follow the excellent customer service principles that have made Body Best Collision Center Sonoma's premier collision repair shop.
In September 2012, Dino and Trina Di Giulio of Body Best Collision in Sonoma, California, received a well-earned Master of Shop Management award from Management Success, a top auto industry training and consulting firm in Glendale, CA. The award was handed out at Management Success’ fall convention, held at the Hilton in Universal City (located in Universal Studios). The award recognized Body Best Collision for establishing extremely efficient business operation management while improving customer service.
The Master of Shop Management award is only given to one or two shops each year in the entire nation. The award honors a business’ achievement of the highest level of organization and control.
In response to the recognition, Dino stated, "All I'm doing is making our business the best possible place for customers to take their cars for auto body repairs. The award is a result of our drive for continuous improvement. We feel honored and thankful."
