Our Story

In 1968, Tony Battaglia moved to the United States from Italy with his parents and brothers. His parents moved in hopes of finding a better life for their kids. He worked as a mechanic in Philadelphia for many years until getting a break to run a body shop in 1985. After spending almost his entire life in the car business, he moved to Chadds Ford to purchase and run C&D Auto Body in 1995. He based his business off of two major ideals: great service and amazing quality. He wanted to create a body shop where people could trust that they would not get taken advantage of. “When someone is in an accident, it is already an awful experience and because of that, it is important that the rebuilding process is as smooth as possible.” It was his ideas and vision that remains the foundation of this company.

In 2002, the name was changed to Chadds Ford Collision to demonstrate its commitment to the community. Although the name changed, the philosophy did not. Chadds Ford Collision is constantly pushing its team to be on the cutting edge of the industry and understands the importance of having a staff that is highly trained and skilled. Our commitment is to maintain our staff as a Certified I-Car Gold Certified Shop with many of our employees certified at the highest level – “Platinum.”

Thanks for the great work on my car. The car looks great. Thanks for the attention to detail. You don’t see that too often. I would recommend you guys to anyone for collision repair. Thanks again.

Jen, 2006 MINI Cooper Owner

Thank you for your outstanding car and customer service.  Not only did you erase the fender bender damage…you also did an amazing job with painting the hood and bumper.  A special thanks to John for paying attention to the details as well as keeping me up-to-date with the repair progress.  I am very happy to say…my 2006 Pepper White MINI Cooper looks like I just pulled it off showroom floor!

Maureen, MINI Cooper Owner

Thanks so much for the wonderful job you did with repairing my MINI Cooper.  The quality of work you did on my car is amazing.  I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.  Thanks again, you guys are great!

Tony, 2007 MINI Cooper Owner

When  a tree branch fell on my three week old 2007 MINI I was devastated. Otto’s recommended Chadds Ford Collision. The work they performed on my MINI can be described in one word – ”PERFECTION”. My MINI came back looking like it did the day I picked it up at Otto’s. It is extremely gratifying to see a shop with an old world work ethic and attention to the smallest of detail. After dealing with numerous body shops for 35  years, these guys are the best I have seen. Thanks Again.
