Our collision and auto body repair services include:

Body Work
If you've been unfortunate enough to have a vehicle accident, you've seen just how quickly a great-looking car can lose its luster. Fortunately, the collision experts at Joy Automotive can restore it to its original state! Our experts will remove dents; fill, grind, and sand affected areas; and apply matching paint to your car's body. We will restore the structural integrity of your damaged vehicle during the repair process. Call us or visit our shop today.

Frame Work
The frame is the main structure of a motor vehicle and all other components fasten to it. The frame is usually made of very hard and strong metal to withstand stress in case of a collision. However, this does not mean that the frame is 100% resistant to damages in a collision. In some cases, a collision may damage the car's framework. When this happens, the other body parts attached to the frame also suffer. To get your car back on the road - after a collision - have its framework worked on by experts. At Joy Automotive, we have experts who can work on your car's framework to make sure your car goes back to its pre-accident state. For fast collision repair services, contact us at 310-450-1712.

Hard Parts Repair
Your vehicle needs hard parts such as Cases, Drums, Hubs, Mounts, Planetaries, Pressure Plates, Pump Assemblies, Shafts, Sun Gears, Supports, and Valve Bodies. Although hard in nature, the hard parts could be damaged during a collision. When this happens, visit Joy Automotive for professional services.

Paint
Painting provides a decorative and protective layer to your car. In addition to providing personality and uniqueness to your vehicle, this layer protects your car's bodywork from corrosion. During collisions, a car is susceptible to scratches and dents. When this happens, you'll need to have your car patched and repainted. To have this done professionally, contact Joy Automotive's expert mechanics.

Windshield
In the event of a collision or a rock from a passing car, the windshield is susceptible to breakage. When broken or cracked, it may become difficult to see through the windshield. Large cracks in windshields can also be unsightly. When your windshield is damaged during a collision, consider our collision repair services. Depending on the severity of the damage, we can either replace or repair your windshield. When replacement is required, our repair specialists use high-quality replacement windshields.

Welding
The collision repair industry understands the importance of welding for consumer safety. Performing a safe and proper weld requires more than technician training and skill, however. The proper shop infrastructure and equipment are also essential. At Joy Automotive, our technicians are provided with state-of-the-art equipment and are trained on the latest techniques.

  • -Amy S.

    I’ve been taking our cars to Joy Auto since I moved here 12 years ago. I trust them to advise the right thing to do. They always back up their work with a guarantee that they stand behind — I can confirm that. And you won’t find nicer people to work with. They even help out local kids with their bikes (I saw that). Love local businesses that take care of their community. I recommend Joy to all my friends and acquaintances and anyone that has been there has also been satisfied with the experience. I actually enjoy taking my car in (except when it’s sick:)


  • -MaryAnne B.

    My experience every time I go to Joy Automotive, is what you would always want it to be. From the beginning in dealing with the guys in the front office (which I would say, they are the nicest, most accomodating, that I have EVER dealt with. The mechanics really think out side the box about how to best repair your car. They really go to bat and beyond at Joy Automotive. I will NEVER go anywhere else


  • -Eagan G.

    We have been taking our Prius to Joy Auto for years now. The team is great, reliable, affordable and honest. Unlike the Toyota dealership that we initially used for the 2 years "free" maintenance, Joy Auto never finds things that need to be fixed. Sometimes they have suggestions for things we should consider, but I have literally never felt like I'm being hoodwinked in their care. It's the best place for car maintenance on the Westside!!!


  • -Karin C.

    Joy came to me highly recommended by a picky friend who has been their client for years. By now Joy Automotie Service and Repair has done 2 major apparently successful services on my old but great car. Beside the technical, their customer service has been tops in every way from clear communication, clean work environment, accurate time prediction, and reliable estimates. I have recommended JOY to all my friends.


  • -Marissa G.

    Joy Automotive has always done an excellent job with repairs to my car. I have used them for years and highly recommend them as they are honest, stand by their repairs, are AAA recommended, and do great work!


  • -Wendy O.

    Staff thoughtful, helpful, knowledgeable. Repair was explained and work done at a fair price. Staff always follows up after service to make sure all is okay. And car is always returned freshly washed. Highly recommend.


  • -Monica C.

    I love taking my car into Joy Automotive! Everyone there is super helpful, friendly and most of all honest. They are always upfront about what your car needs, their service is prompt and they usually throw in a car wash. So glad I found this gem in Santa Monica!!


  • -Brian G.

    Took my car for an oil change. They took a while but because they had a load of cars to take care of first! Great service. Definitely coming back to fix my other car. I liked their car wash service too!! It needed a wash so badly.


  • -Audra M.

    The guys here are super helpful, they always explain things thoroughly, and provide different options based on your needs. Also, its usually possible to get work done same day if you drop your car off early enough. So easy and convenient!


  • -Allison M.

    I won’t go anywhere else besides to get my car serviced. Joy has the best, most knowledgeable and honest guys in the auto business. I recently took my car to another auto shop in the Valley, who did an inspection and failed to figure out that my break padding was dangerously low. Thank goodness I went to Joy for a random oil change shortly thereafter, and they let me know about the breaks. I called 6 different shops for a quote to get my breaks redone, and Joy had the best pricing!


  • -Rob J.

    I began taking my vehicles to Joy Automotive on a recommendation after moving to the area a number of years ago. From my very first visit, they have consistently treated me better than anywhere else I have ever gone. First and foremost, they know their stuff - top notch mechanical work is all they do. But, you'll also find them to be extremely polite, professional and NO ONE will ever take more time to discuss the issues and offer options that get you back on the road anywhere near their price. To say I am extremely satisfied with their work and what they charge would be an understatement. If you have issues with your vehicle, take it to Joy and ask for Jessie. You will not be disappointed. These guys ROCK!
