About Ricks

Serving South Bend for over 40 years

Founded in 1973 by Rick Biggs, Rick’s Auto Body Shop has spent decades building a local reputation for quality and reliability. Our faith-based business is all-American, and family owned. Through two generations, and looking towards a third, we’ve offered dedicated service and quality workmanship to South Bend and the surrounding areas.

Simply Put It’s About You

There is a clear choice in the repair of your vehicle. Either you are told where and how your vehicle is repaired by the insurance company, or you choose. There’s a big difference.

Dealership body shops in the Michiana area typically enter into relationships with insurance companies in order to be what is known as a “contracted” or “preferred” shop.  This means they work for the insurance company, not the vehicle’s owner. If your insurance company has an office in a dealership body shop,  the body shop is working for them. Unfortunately for the customer, this means they have no say in the repair of their vehicle.

To reach our goal of 100% customer satisfaction, we’re committed to doing repairs that our customers want. This means Rick’s doesn’t have any agreements or contracts with insurance companies.  We happily work WITH your insurance company,  but we work FOR our customers.
