Friendly Practices

Everyone deserves to drive a sound vehicle that they feel proud of, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t consider the environment throughout the repair process. At Hopkins Auto Body 1, we’re committed, not only to making your car, truck, or SUV look like new again, but to doing so in a way that is safe for the environment. We set the standard of excellence for going green in our industry. We are dedicated to environmentally-friendly practices, and more importantly, we treat our customers like friends.

Not only will we fix up your vehicle right the first time, but we’ll also clean your car inside and out before we return it. Now that’s quality customer service!

Waterborne Paint

In order to maintain our commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, we only use waterborne paint, even though only 20% of all Minnesota body shops choose to use it. Painting a vehicle used to take 6 to 8 hours, but with waterborne paint the time is significantly reduced. This type of paint is safer for the environment, because it is made up of less volatile chemicals.
