A FAMILY BUSINESS SINCE 1984

In 1984, Bernie Gates' dream of opening a body shop became a reality when he and his wife Laurie opened Prestige Auto Collision in Mission Viejo. The shop consisted of 1 building on a sleepy street lined with shops servicing the car industry. They would see many businesses come and go. Prestige would weather many storms and continue to steadily grow. The business would expand, taking over the lot. Utilizing 4 buildings and over 40,000 sq. ft. of secured facilities. This would only be the beginning and the company would expand to include Prestige South and Fabricante. The business continues to employ many members of the family from grandparents to grandchildren.

  • Kevin is the nicest person! Such a good agent and very helpful, informative, and kind. Prestige fixed my Honda Civic 2013 after I was hit and they did an excellent job! It is a clean and professional facility with hard-working employees and managers! Thank you prestige collision! And thank you Kevin for the kindness! You are the best! you are all the best! Yay Prestige!

  • I can't say enough about how polite and thorough this shop is. I had a grapefruit size dent in my hood after an object hit me on the freeway. Rob was the only person who confidently told me he could fix it and for cheaper than two other shops. He also got the job done in less than 2 days and took the time to show my kids the vintage cars in the back. The receptionist is lovely as well. This isn't a 'certified' Tesla repair shop but they know what they're doing and don't price gouge you because you drive a Tesla! Fantastic customer service and a great shop overall!

  • Prestige Collision South repaired a deeply scratched bumper on my Porsche Cayenne. From the initial quote with Rob to the scheduling of the job with Shelly, everything was handled in the most up front and professional manner. In addition, Rob offered to give me a lift to my office in the area. They are caring, and do exactly what they say for the price quoted. Oh, and the work was meticulous! I highly recommend them.
