We recently helped Fix Auto Santa Maria (formerly known as Premier Auto Body) celebrate their name change with a ribbon cutting!
Premier Auto Body had been around for 8 years when owner Hector Paz decided to change the name of the local auto body shop.
“I decided to join a network and change our name to Fix Auto Santa Maria,” Paz explained. “in that change we have acquired four insurance companies.”
Paz said it was a tough decision to make to change their company name, and the decision has been about three years in the making. “After seeing the way the industry is going, I saw the benefit in being part of a larger network,” he explained. “I felt it was the right time for us and saw the benefits not only for our business but also our customers. So here we are today, making the name change.”
Being part of the new network gives Fix Auto Santa Maria more buying power, allowing them to be more cost effective with parts purchases, and ultimately making parts and services less expensive for the customer.
Fix Auto Santa Maria provides a variety of auto repair services, primarily auto body paint and repair and collision services. “We do some air conditioning repair work, suspension repair, glass repair, and detailing the vehicle too before it goes back to you,” Paz explained. “So we really do a little bit of everything here.”
Paz says his favorite part about his job is interacting with customers, and providing valuable jobs and a fun work environment for his employees. “I take pride in being able to provide a comfortable place to work at and for my employees to call home,” explained Paz. “because we spend a lot more time at work than we do at home, and I wanted to build a place with a lot of comradery where my employees can look forward to coming in every day.”
