Established 1973

Serving South Bend for over 40 years

Founded in 1973 by Rick Biggs, Rick’s Auto Body Shop has spent decades building a local reputation for quality and reliability. Today, the shop is run by Dan Biggs, though his father Rick can still be found at work around the shop each day. Our faith-based business is all-American, and family owned. Through two generations, and hopefully a third, we’ve offered dedicated service and quality workmanship to South Bend and the surrounding areas.

Time To Schedule Your Repair?

Our three core values

Safety – We fix every vehicle like it’s our mother’s.


Integrity – When no one else is looking, God is.


Customer Satisfaction – Our goal is for every repair to earn a 5-star review.

The Problem With Photo Estimates

If you are a claimant (not at fault), more than likely,  you’ll be shorted money by using one of these apps.  If you are the insured (at fault), any non- visible, hidden damage will be missed,  and you wont benefit from the full value of your policy.

Simply Put It’s About You

There is a  clear choice in the repair of your vehicle. Either you’re told what and how your vehicle is repaired by the insurance  company, or you choose. There’s a big difference.

Dealership body shops in the Michiana area typically enter into relationships with insurance companies in order to be what’s known as a “contracted” or “preferred” shops.  This means they work for the insurance company, not the vehicle’s owner. If your insurance company has an office in a dealership body shop,  the body shop is working for them. Unfortunately for the customer, this means they have no say in the repair of their vehicle.

To reach our goal of 100% customer satisfaction, we’re committed to doing repairs that our customers want. This means Rick’s doesn’t have any agreements or contracts with insurance companies.  We happily work WITH all insurance companies,  but we work FOR our customers.
