We Prided Ourselves In Our Excellent Customer Service And Repairs.

Bruce Schollmann started repairing cars at his family body shop in his first year of high school and he has been working there since. He went from detailing cars to learning to repair small dings and dents, to mastering major collisions repairs and painting cars.

Bruce & Helen Schollmann took over running the family business in 2005 and have been going full force since, making changes and updating the business, without taking away from its small-town feel. When you come into Carl's you're not just a number, you're one of the family. Customer service, quality and efficiency is their number one priority and they are always looking for ways to improve their business.

Carl’s Body Shop is family owned and operated and has been serving Sonoma County since 1963. We have 54 years of family experience that shows in our work. Our focus has always been to provide vehicle owners with the finest quality and safest collision repairs.

Carl's Body Shop is kind to our environment and a responsible member of the community. Carl's Body Shop went Green in 2009 using PPG waterborne paint. Bruce and Helen are members of the local Chamber of Commerce and active members of the Rotary Club of Rancho-Cotati.
