The Chatfield Body Shop still offers the same great service but in a remodeled and improved business after sprucing up the exterior of their building and adding some equipment inside.

Owners Keith Bradt and Bill Burk had new steel siding installed on most of the building, leaving a brick face on the front of the building. They also installed overhead doors and new windows among other improvements.

The partners also invested in two additional hoists, a tire changer, and balancer for the Chatfield Body Shop, a business they purchased from Bradt’s father in 1995. Burk has worked in the building since 1978 - first as an employee and then as a co-owner. Bradt began working at the body shop in 1989.

With so many years experience the pair can offer a variety of services along with their employees Mike Stevens and John Stevens who themselves have numerous years of automotive experience.

These services include complete body work, light mechanical work, oil changes, brakes, windshield work and more.

Another difference at the Chatfield Body Shop has been a changeover to using a more environmentally friendly waterborne paint.

After performing collision repair for such a long period of time the owners of the Chatfield Body Shop are quite accustomed to dealing with insurance agencies and can help make the process an easier one with their knowledge and experience.

The Chatfield Body Shop also sells tires and can change and balance the tires on your vehicle so you are ready to roll down the road.

Burk states that the community of Chatfield and the surrounding area has been very supportive saying they have been “very good” over the years.

According to Burk they “plan on doing additional improvements in the future” which will include an expanded waiting area.

Chatfield Body Shop is located at 104 South Main Street in Chatfield. Business hours are Monday through Friday - 7 a.m.- 5 p.m. For more information phone (507) 867-3063.
