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. You can see how we grew and our work today at thedonembrybodyshop.com.

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. See the full story at donembrybodyshop.com. Call us for all auto body repair work in Louisville at (502) 935-1373.

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. See the whole story (including history) at their website donembrybodyshop.com.

Aluminum and Steele…Two Important Components in our Industry.

Here at The Don Embry Body shop we have evolved with the times for sixty years. That includes the use of aluminum panels and components in vehicles. Auto manufacturers adopted this practice to combat heavy steel parts in the various makes and models. This helps vehicles test for specific emissions classes. It makes them eco-friendlier, with better gas mileage.

We know that aluminum auto body repair is a bit trickier than steel repair. There are many factors that figure into this, but maintaining cleanliness in the repair is the most challenging part. It is a fact that when steel gets embedded into the aluminum, it corrodes, causing potentially irreparable damage.

The Don Embry Body Shop has stayed one of Louisville’s top choices for auto body work for six decades by learning and growing. See how we handle everything from auto body painting to damaged bumpers at donembrybodyshop.com. Call for an appointment at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville (502) 935-1373.
