The first part of any repair process is assessing the vehicle damage. Jim's Auto Body specializes in several different collision repairs. We can recommend the best accident repair techniques so you get your car back quickly and affordably.

Even if everything on the inside is still working fine, there will be visible damage to the body, and in some cases, you need effective frame repair to restore your automobile to factory specifications and to look great once again. We offer all types of refinishing services to restore the look of your vehicle and precision frame straightening and mechanical repair services. 

Whether your automobile has suffered bumper scratches or has been in a big accident, there are many reasons why you might need car paint repair. The professionals at Jim’s Auto Body can recommend the best procedure to undertake. 



Jim Maltbie Loves Cars.

Inspired by his father, Raymond, who was also a manager of an auto body shop, Jim was only 12 years old when he began working on cars. In 1962, at only 19, Jim opened his first shop: Jim’s Auto Body, Inc. in Port Chicago, California. Six months later, Jim’s Auto Body moved to Concord, California. It quickly expanded into one of the most reputable and trendsetting body shop in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was also a mentor to many of the body shops in the area.

Success Breeds Success.

With the demand for auto body work in Contra Costa County increasing in the 70s and 80s, Jim opened his second shop in 1986. The new location brought collision repair experience and great customer service to Antioch. In 1992, Jim opened a third shop in Walnut Creek, California.

Claims And Paperwork.

It used to be that a policyholder was required to report auto damage directly to his or her insurance company. Then the policyholder was required to obtain several estimates, from which the insurance company would determine where the repairs would be done. Things have certainly changed since 1962 when the insurance company processed most of the paperwork.

Today the insurance company recommends to the policyholder a number of local businesses from which to choose. It is critical for the body shop to have a record of excellent quality and service. Now it’s the shop that must provide the insurance company with a computerized estimate, document the damage and repair with digital photos, uploading them electronically to the insurance company so that the invoice can be processed and paid.

Jim’s Auto Body tackles this administrative role with the same energy and commitment to customer service as all the repair work we do.

At The Forefront.

Using state-of-the-art equipment and consistently updated technical training for our staff, we maintain our place as a leader in excellent auto body repair and superior customer service. We are Bay Area Green Business Program members.

'They were amazing. Customer service was thorough and efficient. The work was immaculate. And the turn over time, was surprisingly fast. I will love to use them again in the near future.'








-Ruth (7/2/20)

'Quick, reliable and efficient! What I appreciated the most were the descriptive phone calls/voicemails that updated me on the status of my car, when it would be ready and an approximate price and timeframe. The fact that Jim's Auto Body handled the entire claim process with AAA and only charged me for my deductible when I picked up my car made this process incredibly easy for me. I will always be going to Jim's from now on!' 

-Kelli (6/11/20)
