Jim is a Georgetown graduate and former CPA with some big city experience and small town roots. He always had a love for “fixing things” and founded Village Auto Body in the mid 1980s after he left his accounting career. Treating customers like family and doing quality and efficient repairs have been his guiding business principles over the past 30 plus years.

Joe is a graduate of Suffolk and St Joe's and a former education and philosophy major. His love of cars (classic Volkswagens in particular!) attracted him to this business when he started in an entry level job with us in 2005. He has grown through the ranks and has adopted many similar business practices to Jim and has become the excellent manager you know and love at our front desk today!

Why choose us

Because your friends and relatives and neighbors already choose Village Auto Body! And they have for the past 30 plus years - just ask around. Seriously, ask your local mechanic or insurance agent or any local business owner who they trust with their auto body and collision repairs.

Insurance Direct Repair Programs (DRP's): Lately our main competitors are the big insurance company direct referral programs. Think about the hard sell you might get from them when you report a claim. Doesn't that hard sell make you angry? Why do you think they push so hard? To save their shareholders money of course by using their own “ preferred” discount repair shops.

NY Insurance Law clearly states that IT IS YOUR CHOICE who fixes your crashed car. Please remember this and tell your insurance carrier that you want to use your “preferred” repair shop: Village Auto Body in Hampton Bays.

Finally, know that we live and die by our promises and the calendar here. Our mission is to be accurate, fair and on time. We are only responsible to you - the vehicle owner and not to any big insurance company.
