Anthony’s Auto Craft has been in business for 50 years in Marin County California. It has made a reputation for itself in that time for high-quality repairs to its customer’s fine vehicles. Anthony’s ownership has been the same for the last 39 years and has also retained the same management team for the last 28 of those years. Anthony’s has distanced itself from the competition by specializing in luxury, high performance, and exotic vehicles. The reason this is possible is due to being located in one of the country’s wealthiest locations, where the rich and famous reside and play in such cities as Sausalito, Ross, and Tiburon.
With famous clientele such as Sean Penn, Huey Lewis, George Lucas, Sammy Haggar, Barry Bonds, the late Jerry Garcia and many more famous names, Anthony’s reputation continues to grow. We are located only 10 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge and 30 minutes south/west of the Napa Valley Wine Country. We employ a concierge service for our discerning clientele, in doing so we have recently purchased our own fleet of new Mercedes-Benz rental vehicles, which now number 10 cars, and have plans for more due to the success of the program.
“Our motto is Quality Without Compromise. That is also our promise to you.”
We employ 35 people and continue to pay hourly salaries instead of succumbing to the commission pay structure which many of our competition has embraced to increase profit, only to diminish the quality of their product. We are a DRP for only one Insurance company which enables us to distance our selves from the conflict of interest that comes with the contractual commitments that insurance companies insist on, making the cost of repairs the number one importance. We are a Mercedes-Benz Certified Collision Repair Facility and are also Mercedes Elite Certified.
Approximately 17 years ago we became disillusioned with the typical industry training such as I-Car and moved to train directly with the manufactures such as Lexus and BMW which were offering such training at that time, knowing that the industry would eventually move to manufacture certified facilities to deal with the high technology we are now all familiar with. When Mercedes-Benz began their certification process we jumped at the chance to align ourselves with one of the world’s finest car makers. We have also been in a close relationship with the factory owned Ferrari/ Maserati dealer of San Francisco for almost 26 years, repairing their incredible vehicles.
We use Standox Paints Waterborne Line which we spay in one of our three new Blowtherm equipped booths. We are equipped with both Car-o-liner, Globaljig, and Cellette frame systems. For spot welding, MIG & TIG welding needs we employ an overhead Pro-spot and Weilander & Schill and Miller for both aluminum and steel. We utilize Mitchell’s ABSE Program for repair orders, scheduling of parts and vehicles, and tracking profitability, and we use Ultramate exclusively for estimating.
We have a concierge service for all of the North Bay Area, Napa, and the city of San Francisco. We will pick-up and deliver your damaged vehicle, and will bring one of our rental vehicles to you to simplify the process of having your vehicle repaired after an accident. We are one of the five founding shops of the California Repair Association, CRA, and have met directly with numerous Senators and the Insurance Commissioner of the State of California to draft legislation for consumer and collision repairer’s rights.
