Who is 1 Stop Vehicle Reconditioning & Restyling?
1 Stop Vehicle Reconditioning and Restyling began in 2004 as a mobile business for collision and repair. We have become the leader in Michiana in the vehicle reconditioning and restyling business. We offer fast, affordable repair services for removing scratches, dings, chips and tears from exterior metal and painted surfaces, as well as paintless dent removal. Additionally, we offer a large selection of popular appearance and enhancement accessories to customize and upgrade any type of vehicle.

How did 1 Stop get started?
We began over five years ago as a mobile business, providing on-site touch-up and reconditioning services to Michiana automobile dealerships for their new and used car inventories. As the economy changed and more people began buying quality used cars, or keeping the one they had a while longer, the demand for our services from the general public increased. In response we opened up our showroom and repair facility on Lincolnway East in South Bend, and business is booming!

Do you only work on cars, trucks and vans?
While that is certainly the majority of our business, we also work with motorcycles, motor homes, recreational vehicles, trailers, boats, and even aircraft. Give us a call at 1 Stop to see if we can help you with your particular needs.

What is the advantage of using 1 Stop over a mobile service?
In Northern Indiana, Michiana and Southern Michigan it’s mostly the weather, which can be hot one day, rainy the next, and has six months of weather that prohibits doing a quality repair out-of-doors. We began as a mobile paint and detailing service, but time and experience showed us the airbrush techniques we used for painting were not meant to be done in such an unpredictable environment. Not only was quality work difficult to obtain, it was impossible to offer a first-rate warranty. Our brick-and-mortar facility offers a controlled environment, where the speed, quality of service and reasonable prices we came to be known for can be guaranteed. It also offers a showroom where many of the products and aftermarket accessories we offer are on display, so you can better see them and visualize it on your vehicle. We will still, if necessary, make arrangements to pick up your vehicle and bring it to our facility.
