AAA Direct Repair Network Premier Facility
I-CAR Gold Class Professionals

Rich's Auto Body Shop has been serving San Francisco's collision and other auto body repair needs since 1982. That's 33 years of satisfied customers! But don't just take our word for it; read some of our reviews on Yelp and Citysearch.


Thank You, San Francisco!

Rich’s Auto Body Shop will be closing its doors on October 30. We’d like to thank all of our customers for their support over the past 33 years! We’d especially like to thank our customers who left reviews on Yelp. Your comments were all greatly appreciated.

After almost five decades of auto repair, Rich is ready to kick back and take it easy for a little while. However, he will be available for minor repairs again starting in 2016. If you have any smaller fender benders or dents that need to be repaired after that time, you can reach him at (415) 285-0110 or (415) 624-5938.

If you have any collision repair needs in the meantime, we wholeheartedly recommend that you contact one of the following two shops; both of them are part of AAA’s Direct Repair Network, just like us:

Industrial Auto Body

145 Industrial St.
San Francisco, CA 94124
(415) 648-0222

Don’s Auto Body

1270 Bush St.
San Francisco, CA 94109
(415) 673-4700

Imagine how different cars will be in another 60 years!

An MG and a Tesla

Rich’s Auto Body, Your Insurance Company, and You

Recently we’ve been getting a lot of customers bringing in estimates from their insurance companies after seeing our wonderful reviews on Yelp and CitySearch. They feel more comfortable having our shop do the repair work on their car after hearing from other satisfied customers. However, there’s a question that we hear all the time: “Rich, can you repair our car even though your shop wasn’t on the list of shops given to us by our insurance company or dealer?”

Absolutely! You are allowed to have your car repaired at any shop; it’s the law! Do a little research and check out the shops on the list. Even though other facilities might have network status with your insurance agency, there still can be a huge difference in performance between shops. We’re confident that Rich’s Auto Body Shop will provide the best possible experience for you. Plus, in most cases we can save you part or all of your deductible!

  1. Visit one of the shops on your provided list of repair facilities and get an estimate.
  2. Bring your car and estimate to us. If there are any additional necessary repairs that the previous shop missed, we can communicate directly with the insurance company, saving you time and hassle!
  3. Pick up your car when repairs are completed. That’s it!
