The Able Body Promise

/Mission Statement
Mission Statement

At Able Body Shop our number one priority is the relationship we develop with each one of our customers. We recognize the inconvenience and stress involved when your regular daily routine is interrupted by the necessity for auto body repair, and we are committed to making the process easy on you from start to finish.


All Able Body Shop repair work is backed up by our lifetime limited warranty for as long as you own your vehicle. We guarantee that the repairs we perform on your vehicle will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service or Able Body Shop will repair or replace the defective repairs at no cost to you.

Body Shop

At Able Body Shop, our goal is to earn your trust and satisfaction by restoring your vehicle to its original performance and beauty. Our technicians are fully trained and have extensive experience in meticulously repairing vehicles to meet their original factory specifications.

Auto Body Repair Technologies in Place

We stay ahead in our industry by using today's leading technologies. These include computerized estimating programs with digital imagery equipment, as well as precision frame and alignment equipment which guarantee that we'll bring your car back to factory specifications. And our employees undergo year-round training to keep their skills honed to meet the strictest standards of our industry.

Able Body Shop to Use "Green" Paint Technology

As evidence of our commitment to using the most sophisticated technologies available today, we're excited to announce that Able Body Shop has been chosen by PPG Paint -- one of the top manufacturers in the paint industry -- as the first repair shop in Montana to switch to a new, eco-friendly waterborne paint application system. The new system is part of our commitment to keep Able Body Shop "green" for our environment and the safety and health of our employees.

Body Work

When your vehicle arrives at our shop for repairs, we rinse it off in order to inspect the damage. We also begin to disassemble the damaged area to inspect for sheet metal repairs and parts replacement to ensure the utmost accuracy in our estimating process. We'll keep you informed on the status of your vehicle repairs by phone or email - whichever you prefer.

Once repairs are underway, if we discover more damage than was originally estimated, we take photos of the damaged area and contact you and/or your insurance company for approval to make the needed repairs. Once the repairs are complete, a damage appraiser will meet with you to review the repair process and make certain you're satisfied with our work.

Repair Process


To provide you with the most accurate estimate possible, our technicians inspect your vehicle in our drive-up estimating bay. By entering all the relevant data about the repair into our computerized estimating system, we can generate a report detailing the work needed and the costs involved. We are able to provide mobile estimates if you are unable to bring your vehicle to our shop.

Insurance Approval

In addition to Able Body Shop's estimate, a representative from your insurance company may inspect your vehicle and prepare an estimate. Prior to beginning the repair process, we'll make sure our estimate agrees with the insurance company's figure as well as with the repair procedures needed to fix any damage. At times, a vehicle may be evaluated as a total loss and no repairs will be needed.


Occasionally we find additional damage after a vehicle has been disassembled for repair. When this happens, we take photos of the damage and contact you and/or your insurance company to approve any additional repairs. We'll also generate a supplement to your original estimate to cover additional repair costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are my costs?

If you have insurance, you will need to meet your required deductible which is payable to Able Body Shop and is due upon completion of repair. Any other costs are unique to your particular insurance plan. We will contact your insurance company to take care of all required paperwork and documentation.
How long will it take to fix my car?
Every repair is unique in nature and repair times will vary dependent upon how many labor hours are involved and the extent of damages. The estimator can give you an approximate amount of days to repair based on visual damages but there can be delays if hidden damage is discovered upon repair.
What if I need a rental?  Is that included in my repair costs?
This can sometimes be covered by your insurance depending on your plan. If not, we work with local rental companies and can suggest the most affordable rental for your needs. We can also provide in-town commute when you drop your car off and in-town pickup when your car is ready upon your request.
