Serving Our Community for Over 30 Years

Bates Collision opened its doors back in 1982. After a few years, the owner, Jack Bates, decided to move the business from its original location on Route 8 in Erie to a new building on State Street.

As time progressed, business grew substantially, forcing Bates to find a new location which would accommodate its expanding customer base. After considerable searching, the business moved once again – this time for good.

The building located at 3017 Buffalo Road needed a complete renovation. Countless hours and a great deal of hard work went into this project, and the final product is an updated state-of-the-art collision repair shop.

We pride ourselves not only on the work we do, but on the cleanliness and appearance of our shop, as well as our commitment to a cleaner environment. Because of this, in 2010, we switched to waterborne paints, a “greener” alternative that reduces our carbon footprint and helps make our community safer from pollutants.
