What Is An Auto Body Shop | J.B.A. Collision Center | Glen Burnie, MD

If you’ve gotten into an accident, should you go to an auto body shop or an auto repair shop? As a car owner, it’s important to know the differences, so you can get your car the service it needs.

Services Offered by Auto Body Shops


An auto body shop, also known as a collision center, is where you take your car to perform repairs to the exterior and to non-moving parts. At J.B.A. Collision Center, our expert technicians will restore your vehicle after you have gotten into an accident, whether it was minor or major. Essentially, we take care of all the non-mechanical components of your car.

We’ll repair dents in the sheet metal, replace bumpers and damaged body panels, repair or replace glass, as well as restore paint or perform repaints to match the factory color.

Whether it’s the door handle or the entire door that’s broken, glass and all, the auto body shop is where you should bring your car to make it like new again.

Differences From Auto Repair Shops


A traditional auto repair shop, also known as a service center or garage, is where mechanics perform maintenance on the moving components of your car, such as the brakes, engine, and transmission. If you need an oil change, that’s where to go. Conveniently, we also perform auto repairs at J.B.A. Collision Center, making us the one-stop shop for any and all car services you may need, whether it’s routine maintenance or full-frame repairs.

Certifications Matter


Not every auto shop is created equal. At J.B.A. Collision Center, our body shop technicians and collision repair specialists have undergone first-class training from I-Car, the worldwide leader in automotive collision repair. They have also received extensive factory training to ensure they know exactly how to work on your specific car. They’ll restore your car professionally, quickly, and with the most advanced equipment and technology available to guarantee your satisfaction.


Our repair facility is also approved with all insurance companies. If your car is in need of repairs or maintenance, be sure to give J.B.A. Collision Center a call at (410) 863-7095, or contact us online!
