As the owner of KK Collision Center (and KK Vintage Restoration), I jumped into the business of auto body repair and restoration with both feet in 1978. With 35 years of service in the Sacramento Valley, I am one of the most experienced owner/operators in the area. I discovered at a young age that I am mechanically inclined, but developing KK Collision Center was a fortunate accident based on my skills and interests, rather than a conscious decision at my young age.
I started out by tinkering with, rebuilding and restoring vintage cars, then reselling them. My interest piqued when I saw an earnest need in the auto repair industry for a full service collision repair facility. My research of the industry made me realize that many victims on accidents were also becoming victims of shoddy work performed by less than superior auto body repair shops. Insurance companies contributed to, and compounded the problem, by using the lowest cost repair shops which in many cases were the lowest bidders. This predicated the formation of KK Collision Center.
In my 35 years of service, my company and I have worked on nearly 20,000 vehicles. While the repairs are fundamental to our work, our customer relationships are paramount to our success and is our primary concern (beyond, of course, returning to a customer a vehicle that they are proud of and are comfortable in driving)
Our goal at KK Collision Center is to provide the smoothest transaction possible to each and every individual who walks through our doors. The accident or mishap to a vehicle is a traumatic experience and we try to help our customers minimize the after effects by bending over backwards to provide them a positive experience during the repair process.
Nearly three quarters of our business are referrals from existing clients, (unfortunately) repeat business, and leads from insurance companies and other auto repair shops.
If you are involved in an accident, whether a car, recreational vehicle, or large truck, call me first at (916) 638-7289. More than likely you’ll be sold on your first visit. Just look at the testimonials from many of our very happy customers.
And if vintage cars are your thing, we’d love to speak with you about our vintage restoration services. After all, this was this passion that helped me jump start my career in this industry.
Throughout my 35 years in business, I am a member/resident of the Rancho Cordova and Rancho Murietta communities. I have been or am a member of Rotary, the Chamber of Commerce, Executive Boards, Homewoner Associations, the Better Business Bureau, the California Auto Body Association, Le Tip International, and I am currently Membership Chairman for Elite Networking, a group I helped found to promote networking and business development in our local community.
Oh, and my wife of 26 years, Laura, and I love to ski.
