Since 1987, SB’s #1 Auto Body Shop

John and Martha Peterson opened Precision Auto Body & Painting in 1987. In the beginning, it was just the two of them—John did the repairs and Martha handled the paperwork. In their first month they repaired 5 cars. Today, Precision Auto Body is the premier collision repair facility in Santa Barbara County, with over 30 employees at 3 repair centers. We’ve come a long way, but our mission is the same: to provide world class service and the highest quality of repairs.

World Class Service

Precision Auto Body is still family owned and operated. And from the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll feel like you’re part of our family. Being in an accident can be stressful, but the repairs don’t have to be. Our helpful staff can guide you through the entire process, including towing, car rentals, and working with your insurance company. We also offer a free shuttle service and free pickup and delivery of your vehicle.

Manufacturer Certified Repairs

Precision Auto Body is the only repair facility in Santa Barbara County to be certified by Tesla and Mercedes-Benz USA, and we are recognized by BMW of North America. Our technicians have been factory-trained to meet the highest standards of repair practices that these manufacturers require. They attend continuing education courses with these manufacturers to ensure that they are up-to-date on the latest repair procedures.

We are the preferred body shop for Santa Barbara Audi, Porsche, Jaguar, and Range Rover. Additionally, our technicians are I-CAR Platinum certified, the highest individual recognition for collision repair technicians.

This company obviously takes their business very seriously... customer service is excellent- friendly, efficient, and highly communicative throughout the process. Repairs came out perfectly, and were completed very fast. Costs were transparent and reasonable. Highly recommend this business! -

    5 star rating First time going to this Auto Body shop. I was very satisfied with their work and how quickly they worked on my car. Michael was so helpful and courteous. My car was well taken care of, and spotless when it was returned to me as if it never was involved in a car accident. I highly recommend them. -

    My car was rear ended, and by the time Precision Auto Body was done repairing it, it looked like it had just come off the assembly line. Not only did they restore my car to new condition, they also buffed out little dings and scratches on other areas of my car, AND detailed the interior. I highly recommend them! -

    I took my car into Precision after being in a minor accident. Their shop was one of many suggested by AAA, the other driver's insurer. I'm relatively new to Santa Barbara so I took the recommendation and I'm happy I did. Everyone I dealt with was extremely professional and friendly. Scott, in particular, was always available, happy to address any concerns, and totally transparent about everything that would need to be done to my vehicle. When I picked my car up yesterday after nearly three weeks it looked amazing and it drives just the way it should. I highly recommend Precision for any of your auto body needs. -

    This is a great body shop. They have really courteous and helpful staff and they are great at what they do. Fixed cosmetic damage on my Tesla in 4 days and it looks brand new! If you’re looking for a great Tesla approved body shop look here first. -
