First Responder’s Workshop
Auto Body Hawaii conducts regular extrication workshops for Hawaii’s First Responders. It is part of an on-going effort to provide Hawaii County’s first responders and rescue workforce (fire, police, EMTs, etc.) the hands-on opportunity they vitally need to effectively safe lives.
Auto Body Hawaii was the first repair facility on the Big Island to convert from solvent based vehicle paint to environmentally friendly waterborne vehicle paint. Waterborne paint is the future of modern refinishing; simply put, waterborne refinish materials are better for the environment, for the community and better for the technicians who work with it.

We support education of future collision technicians through the March Taylor Educational Scholarship Throughout his life March strived to support the community and share his knowledge with young people, encouraging them to consider careers in the collision industry. There is an increased importance for qualified technicians and training is available to further benefit professionals in the field of auto body work.

Car Care Workshops
These workshops are designed to better acquaint the girls with their vehicles’ maintenance needs before they reach driving age. They learn about vehicle safety and what to do if they are involved in an accident. We are proud to play our part in educating girls before they start driving will help keep them informed and safe. We want them to understand more about their cars, the importance of having them properly maintained, as well as safe driving practices.

You guys run a model good business which is a rarity in Hawaii. Thank you so much for the airport drop-off! You are the best!
Overall excellent service. Job well done.
This kind of attentiveness to customer needs is the difference between a good company and a great company!
Hassle free repair procedure. Totally satisfied with service and quality.
Now, it’s all over, it’s like car was NEVER injured. Certainly brings back faith in “humanity” when there is a “balance” of people like you.Auto Body seems to have done this, being is business as long as they have, still maintaining a good reputation.
They did a very good job. I will bring my work for you to do.
Very wonderful people. Very ohana oriented. Dale and the girls were very respectful. No concerns, very satisfied!!!
You exceeded my expectations, plus your extra service of returning the rental car for me. I am a 40 year (retired) agent of State Farm Ins and never experienced a shop like yours!
