ABOUT US

Authentic Auto Body, formerly known as Holliston Auto Body, is a newly established auto body shop. The business was first founded in 1971 and since then has evolved into Authentic Auto Body, which is owned and operated by Steven Proia who brings over 15 years of experience in the auto body industry.

Steve first attended Minuteman Career and Technical High School located in Lexington, MA where he graduated with a certificate in auto body repair in 2003. During his time there, Steve placed in the top four in the state of Massachusetts during a Skills USA challenge. Skills USA provides educational programs, events, and competitions that support career and technical education to ensure America has a skilled work force. Since then, Steve has gained an extensive amount of hands on experience and for the past five years has been successfully managing auto body shops as a licensed appraiser. This role has provided him with the opportunity to learn the business side of the industry.

Steve’s knowledge and expertise in the auto body industry combined with his passion for his work has led him to fulfilling his lifelong dream of owning his own shop. Steve is excited for him and his family to be newly part of the Holliston community and looks forward to establishing lifelong relationships both inside as well as outside the community.

WHO WE ARE: WHAT WE DO: CONTACT US TODAY:

Steve Proia is the proud owner and founder of Authentic Auto Body & Collision LLC. Prior to establishing Authentic Auto Body, Steve started his auto body career at Minuteman Career and Technical High School located in Lexington. During his time as a student he also began working in a small shop in Watertown where he realized working in the auto body industry was his true passion and desired career path.

Since then, Steve has gained an extensive amount of hands on bodywork and office experience in different auto body shops, but was never quite satisfied. While always trying to do what was in the customers’ best interest, he found that management was more concerned about what made money rather than what was safe for the customer and failed to see the importance of going that extra mile to ensure quality work. He knew in his heart that someday he would strive to break the chain of auto body shops using cheap parts, cheap materials, and cutting corners on safety items just to please the insurance companies or make an extra buck.

The day has finally come where Steve’s hard worked has paid off, turning his dreams into reality allowing him to open his own auto body shop, Authentic Auto Body & Collision LLC. At Authentic Auto Body, the focus is first and foremost on customer satisfaction. Steve hopes to change the face of the auto body trade and create the type of experience where his customers are known by their name, not just another customer. Steve and his family are excited to be newly part of the Holliston community and are looking forward to creating lifelong relationships throughout the Holliston area as well as surrounding towns.

Authentic Auto Body & Collision is truly a family owned business. Alongside Steve, you can find his fiancée Gabrielle in the office who is an enthusiastic and highly driven member of their new business.

Prior to Authentic Auto Body, Gabrielle attended Merrimack College where she attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development in 2015 as well as a Master’s Degree in Management in 2016. Gabrielle has worked in a variety of industries that offered her a wide range of experiences and interactions. Through those experiences, she discovered her talent and passion was in helping others. Her desire to serve others combined with her interest in business development, has led her towards pursuing a career at Authentic Auto Body. Her role is to assist customers with handling the logistics and claims process. She is an instrumental part in assisting Steve with operating the business side of this family owned shop.

Gabrielle is currently working towards becoming a licensed appraiser to gain further knowledge in the industry. She is excited about this new opportunity for her family and is looking forward to having Steve, herself, and their son Vincent involved in the Holliston community.

Trusted Collision Repair. Guaranteed Quality.

Authentic Auto Body ten-step repair process ensures your vehicle is inspected and repaired only by industry-certified technicians, whose priority is getting you back on the road safely!

Estimate

An initial estimate is given based on visible damage. Additional damage may be assessed after the car has been taken apart. Here at Authentic Auto Body, we give FREE estimates.

INSURANCE APPROVAL

The initial estimate is turned over to your insurance agency. A price of the repair agreement is reached, unless the vehicle is deemed ‘unrepairable’ or ‘totaled’. Once a price is settled upon, we can begin dis-assembly.

DISSASSEMBLY

The vehicle is then taken apart and any additional damage or structural damage is assessed. If significant damage is found, the insurance agency may need to be re-contacted for approval for a supplement.

ORDER PARTS

Order parts. We order required parts and make necessary arrangements if special or manufacturer -only parts are needed. Once all parts arrive, the repair/ rebuild process will commence.

STRUCTURE REPAIR

Structural repairs must be completed first. Once the frame of your car meets original manufacturing specifications we can proceed with the next phase of repair.

BODY REPAIR

Time to repair the body. Our auto body specialists match and align metal panels and the car begins to take shape.

PAINT

Auto panels are prepared for paint with primer and sealer. Computer-matched paint is applied and the final coats ensure long lasting rich color.

REASSEMBLY

Vehicle finishing pieces are applied and a full vehicular operations test is performed. This test includes road testing to ensure safe vehicle operations. The vehicle can now begin the final step before delivery.

DETAIL / POLISH

A clean up is performed to remove any dust or dirt that may have collected while your vehicle was being repaired.

ALL SET!

Your vehicle is ready for pick-up! Once you arrive at the shop your dedicated auto body technician will review all work completed and make sure you are 100% satisfied with the condition of your vehicle.
