Customer satisfaction is what has kept us around for the last 40 years…and is what will keep us around for years to come. — Bill Elmore, Sr., Founder

Our History in the Word’s of Our Founder

The story of our company is a simple one really. Professional Collision was founded literally on a “wing and a prayer.” My wife Linda was a school teacher and mother. I was employed as an insurance adjuster. With limited funds, two small children and Linda’s blessing, we founded Professional Collision in 1977.

Our leap of faith took us from a 3,700 square-foot building to a place among the top 1% of collision repair shops in the country in the first ten years. Steadily and methodically, we built the company into what it is today — seven stores across the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast region employing over one hundred people and servicing thousands of clients a year. In the mid-90s, our sons, Billy and Donnie, came on board truly making Professional Collision a family-run business.

It’s been all about hard work, common sense, and above all else, treating our customers right. If a customer has a problem, I want them to call me directly. Customer satisfaction is what has kept us around for the last 40 years, and I believe having a decision-maker on site, ready to answer customer questions and concerns is what will keep us around for years to come.” — Bill Elmore, Sr.

From the time we were 4 and 6 years old, this company has been the life blood of our family. We are proud of our parents’ accomplishments and vow that their guiding principles will always remain evident and our path forward will be forged with the same drive, integrity and passion that they have had for the last 40 years.
