Our Shop's Story

Dale's Auto Body started in 1984 when Dale and Becky Maunu took ownership of the existing business from Dewey Smith. Dale actually worked at the shop for 13 years before buying the company. He started working at the shop in high school, sweeping floors and doing small jobs to assist the technicians and other employees. By the time he was a high-school senior, Dale was a fully trained auto body technician repairing customer vehicles.

Dale juggled his career and his education in the following years. He graduated from ICC's forestry technician program while advancing his chosen trade. Shortly after finishing his degree, Dale asked Dewey if he could start working on paint. When the answer he got was "NO," Dale borrowed his father-in-law-to-be's car, painted it in his garage, and showed it to Dewey. Dale was painting customer's cars a few days later.

A year later, Dale turned his eye to the shop's management. He thought of better ways to run the business as it was making misstep after misstep, growing his desire to own the place he had so much love for.

Finally, in the summer of 1984, Dale and Becky bought the shop and renamed it to the name the Grand Rapids community knows and trusts today. However, within their first year of ownership, they quickly realized that Dale's beloved body shop needed more than just new management.

The couple adopted 3M's Advanced Repair Management System (ARMS) the following year to improve operations. ARMS allowed them to run the shop efficiently without sacrificing the level of service they provided customers. How we still run the shop today traces back to this transition to focus on continuous improvement in serving our customers.

"Stopped by for an estimate and learned it was not scratches on my car roof. After a couple of different cleaners and 20 minutes of Dale's time, I was on my way! Thank you for your great service and the community support your business does!!!"

- Kathy K.

"We took our Honda Civic to Dales for a replacement windshield. Not only did we get a new windshield, but we got a complementary car wash and vacuum. We will definitely use Dale's Auto again."

"Very helpful and friendly in all aspects - estimate, dealing with insurance, completing repairs, and so on.
We are new to the area and got in an accident. All recommendations we received were to go to Dale's Auto, and now we see why. They have definitely earned our future business!"

- Paige M.

"Recently needed some autobody work. Brought it into Dale's and am so happy I did! When I brought the car in to be repaired, Dale even remembered me, and I really appreciated the personal greeting. Had a great conversation when completing the paperwork to pick up, too! The best part is my vehicle looks awesome! Can't tell if it ever needed the repairs! Definitely recommend it to everyone!"

- Jessica B.

"I had my vehicle get hit by a deer, and the damage was so bad that it was determined to be a total loss from Dale. Dale's helped me through everything with assistance on how to talk with my insurance, getting more pictures for the total loss evaluation, and the tips on doing your research to get the best value for your totaled vehicle. They did this and weren't even getting direct business from me to fix the vehicle because it was totaled. They treated me like family, and I will go back to them any time something like this happens again. Dale's Auto Body will treat you right!"

- Lucas S.

"I had my GMC Sierra repaired at Dale's after I hit a deer last fall. Top-notch experience all around. The work they did was excellent. When I picked the truck up, Dale even took me back into the shop and showed me exactly what they did and how they did it. I couldn't recommend Dale's highly enough!"

"Everyone was knowledgeable and very nice. I would come here again if I needed to. 9/16 - they repaired my car, and I couldn't be happier with the results! They even vacuumed & wiped out the inside of the car! I would definitely recommend Dale's to anyone who needed their care repaired."

- Janet M.

"If you're looking for the best place to have your car've found it!! Dale's is hands down the only place to bring your car. From the first phone call with Tiffany, estimate with Dale, update with Becky, and follow-up with Paul --- the staff was AMAZING. Bruce did a WONDERFUL job cleaning up my car before it was returned. I highly recommend this will not be sorry if you have your car restored to like new condition at this body shop!!"
