CarMasters Collision & Glass

Company History…Family Owned and Operated since 1993!

In spring 2012, the building process had begun to build the CarMasters Collision & Glass location at 5770 Seneca St in Elma, New York.  Over the summer and into fall, the building was constructed and opened for business in December 2012 with the same crew that has been fixing your vehicles for the past 20 years at the Schmidt's Auto Body & Glass 4800 Broadway, Depew, NY location.

BODYGUARD Rust Protection was born!

Along with the 20 year lease and license at the Schmidt's Auto Body & Glass location at 4800 Broadway @ Transit in Depew, an oil-based rust proofing product named Rustop was applied to vehicles as a rust prevention product.  At our new location CarMasters Collision & Glass, we are using a more refined oil based rust proofing product called BODYGUARD Rust Protection. Schedule your appointment today!

This is an exciting time for the Kerls.  If you find yourself needing collision or glass repair or would like to protect your vehicle with rust proofing, please give us a call or better yet, come in to see us at our beautiful new building with plenty of parking!  We even have a lawn and beautiful landscaping which was lacking at the other location!

New for 2014:  Brakes, Tires, Wheel Alignments and Balancing! We also do 24 hour towing!

In 2010 the estate of Alex G. Schmidt, which held the lease & license for the building, notified Kevin and Debbie that their lease and the license to use the Schmidt's Auto Body & Glass DBA name which they had used for 20 years, would not be renewed when it would come due in 2013 because they were gong in another direction.  Due to a non-compete clause, they would have to move 5 miles away.  In 2011 land was purchased and plans to build a dream shop began.  Bailey & Harris Architects were hired to put the plan to paper and that summer, fall and winter were spent designing and planning to construct a brand new facility to their specs. A new DBA was formed and….
