History of Bill's Auto Body

Bill Sheldon, owner of Bill's Auto Body, started working in the collision field right out of high school. Working with his hands was a passion of his and he enjoyed making cars look like they had never been damaged. He began his career at Lawson's Auto Body in Galesburg IL and then started gaining more experience at various other local body shops. With 15 years of auto body experience, Bill decided to start his own business through the help and support of his family and friends.

The passion Bill developed for classic cars, combined with his years of expertise in collision repair, he decided to open his own repair shop. "I wanted to be able to get my customers back on the road in a timely manner with a repair that would last forever," said Bill.

Bill has a reputation that has built his business through word of mouth and in order to fulfill his goals of getting his customers back on the road in a timely manner with the quality repair they deserve, we now have three employees and counting.
