Welcome to Chestnut Collision


Locally Owned Since 1967

Chestnut Collision opened for business here on Chestnut Street in 1997, but our history goes back much farther. In 1967, Chestnut Collision founder, Ralph Maki, joined Warren’s Body Shop. He took over the business when owner Warren Erickson retired in 1986, eventually moving the shop to its current location, upgrading all the equipment, and changing the name to Chestnut Collision. Ralph’s son, Wes, took over when Ralph retired in 2013, carrying on the family tradition of providing quality collision repair and restoration.
