Is it Totaled…or Not?

If you’ve been in an accident, your car may have taken a serious beating. If so, it will probably be considered totaled by your insurance company. But what does it really mean if your car is totaled, and what do you do about it? The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville wants you to be informed.

A car is considered totaled if and when it is deemed to be a total loss after something unexpected occurs. Your insurance provider then determines your car to be totaled when the vehicle’s cost for repairs including its salvage value equates to more than the actual cash value of the vehicle itself.

The Don Embry Body Shop pledges to get you back on the roads of the Louisville area if we are given the opportunity. That was the pledge of our founder Don Embry sixty years ago and it continues to be today. For the full story please visit our website at We will be here at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville if you ever need us.

Auto Body Repair is OUR FAMILY’S Business.

It has been that way for six decades and continues to be a family owned and run business since 1962. When our late patriarch Don opened the doors of The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville, he focused on three principals…customer satisfaction, high quality repair, and, above all…honesty. That is a mantra that is common to most businesses that survive and thrive for decades.

Don knew something that others tend to forget, families have more than one car in their lifetime, then their families have more than one car, and on it goes. It is important to remember that when The Don Embry Body Shop makes a damaged vehicle look like new.

Today, the next generation of Embrys’ adheres to those basic principles. When you have a scratch, need a paint job, or get into a collision with your vehicle in the Louisville area we will be here at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville. Our phone number is (502) 935-1373.

Scratches and Dents in your Vehicle…Let Me Know the Ways.

There are pebbles flying all around the road. In the parking areas there are runaway shopping carts, or how about this one…you don’t have enough space to open your door. Those are just some of the numerous reasons why a car might get a dent or scratch. If the paint has chipped, the exposed metal may rust and the cracked surface will likely continue to deteriorate.

Here are some of the steps we employ at The Don Embry Body Shop –

1.  We clean the surface thoroughly of all grime.

2.  Then we sand and prime the dent.

3.  The color is first matched visually.

4.  An undercoat must be applied.

5.  At the end we apply a top coat so that your car shines like new.

We have one goal at The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville. That is to return your vehicle to you looking like new. You see, we have been doing this for nearly 60 years and we have all of the latest auto body repair technology.

Suspension Repair After an Accident.

Our vehicle's suspension system is something we might take for granted after an auto collision. The vehicle’s frame might be our top priority. Remember, that frame has to support a lot of metal and it needs to be in top condition when you drive away from 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville…the home of The Don Embry Body Shop.

Some of the things to keep in mind –

1.  Those shocks and struts may have already begun wearing out.

2.  You cannot have your car pulling in one direction.

3.  The tires will wear out quickly without proper suspension repair.

The professional team at The Don Embry Body Shop will do the job right and completely so that suspension is NOT something you have to think about. Auto body repair in Louisville is a multi-faceted job. Trust ALL of that job to The Don Embry Body Shop. If you have had an accident in the Louisville area call (502) 935-1373.
