Best Body Shop is the one-stop auto repair shop that is crazy about three things: You as our customer, your vehicle, and our team. We strive to transform our day-to-day customers into rabid fans who are just as passionate about the repair of their vehicle as we are. We commit to adhering to manufacturers’ design-based repair recommendations and providing our fans with the safest and most economical repairs that will send them with something to write home about.
The local Wichita business was established in the spring of 2014 by Clay Hoberecht, who developed the vision for Best Body Shop after devoting more than a decade of his life to following his passion for the automotive bodywork and paint industry.
Clay spent countless hours learning and gaining skills from some of the top local leaders in the auto repair industry before finally settling down to make his own unique imprint in the automotive world. He successfully bootstrapped the operation after securing a small but satisfying location in west Wichita. Carrying only his heart for the auto body industry, some powerful and dedicated mentors, and all the tools he acquired along the way., Best Body Shop quickly evolved into a team-oriented establishment. Clay knew from the very beginning that one of his greatest desires was to create an establishment that would shape and harbor successful men and women for our community. He was inspired to make major changes in the workplace by creating a very specific culture of being “Humble, Hungry and Smart.” That is why you will find our team executing daily morning meetings revolved around topics ranging from shop flow operations, conflict resolution and team building, to discussing the personal development books we read as a team each month. We also share lunch together every day as a way for us to bring the family feel to our workplace and be able to share our personal lives and let loose a little.
