Nelson Coelho, President

Coelho’s Body Repair & Auto Sales, Inc. has been fixing cars under the auspices of Nelson Coelho Jr. since 1980. A burgeoning car mechanic since age 12, Mr. Coelho honed his skills by spending his high school summers and weekends working in his father’s auto repair shop. Today, the entire Coelho family is involved in the day-to-day operation of the Fremont-based body shop.

Mr. Coelho says his work is all about “the art of invisible repair.” Coelho’s Body Repair & Auto Sales strives to bring vehicles back to their pre-accident conditions while leaving no evidence of any repair. Such seamless restoration is time consuming and takes great expertise, but it’s become the trademark of Mr. Coelho’s business.

As a small, independent shop, Coelho’s Body Repair & Auto Sales values its customer relationships over its relationships with insurance companies. “We’ll go out of our way to accommodate our customers and save them money whenever possible,” says Mr. Coelho. “We can even help them file insurance claims.” The company believes communication is the key to great service, so customers are encouraged to ask questions and discuss any concerns.

Company Philosophy

“We excel at what we do because we truly love the work. We’re a small operation by choice. It lets us have very personal relationships with our customers and  give them the kind of attention they can’t get at larger shops, so it really feels like a family.”

Serving all of Alameda County including Berkeley, San Leandro, Oakland, Fremont, Hayward, Castro Valley, Emeryville, Sunol, San Lorenzo and Livermore.
