The Schaefer Autobody Difference

Schaefer Autobody is not your average St. Louis auto body repair shop. For all of us at Schaefer, average is simply not good enough. We’ve spent the last 30 years building a business that places emphasis on providing the best service possible to our customers. That means being experts in our field and leading with integrity and honesty so that customers know when they choose us for their auto body repairs that they can trust the work we provide. So what is it that makes Schaefer Autobody so different?

Local and Family Owned

Schaefer Autobody is a family business built by a hard-working St. Louis family just like yours. Steve Schaefer started the business in 1985 in Webster Groves building on his passion for cars. Since then, we have grown to 10 locations throughout the greater St. Louis area and even farther when we opened our Columbia, Missouri location in 2015. Steve’s son Scott now manages the business, continuing the tradition of excellence in auto body repair and service that his father began.

Part of our mission at Schaefer Autobody is to give back to the community that makes our business possible. We remain active in the community through partnerships with local organizations that we believe in.

Industry Leaders

Everyone that works for Schaefer Autobody receives the highest quality training and continued education so that we can perform repairs at the highest quality and skill level, keeping up with industry standards and new technologies. We even offer Continuing Education courses to our auto insurance partners so that they can be better informed to serve their customers when they need auto body repairs.

Service Driven

At Schaefer, we would never just perform your repairs and call it a day. We want to be sure that the work we’ve done for you lasts in the long run. We provide a guarantee on all work done by Schaefer Autobody on your car for as long as you own it. If anything isn’t up to the highest standards, we’ll make it right.

We’ve also gone the extra mile to make the auto body repair process as streamlined and easy as we can for our customers. We know just how inconvenient it can be to have your car out of commission. The team at Schaefer will help arrange for your rental car and keep you up-to-date on your repair status through an easy to use online portal so you know when to expect to have your car back up and running.

Going above and beyond for our customers is simply who we are at Schaefer Autobody. We want to be the kind of business that St. Louis residents tell their friends and family about, the kind of business that leads by example. If you ever find yourself in the unlucky position where you need our help, we guarantee that your experience with us will be a positive one that returns your car to you looking so great that it will be like it never happened.
