Chilton Auto Body mixes pleasure and preparation as they remind consumers it’s a good thing to know where to find a trusted auto body shop when the need arises.

We wanted to be a part of our customers’ real lives, not just when they have an accident... When you know a business you can trust, a lot of the stress just evaporates.

Auto accidents cause so much anxiety and happen so infrequently, it’s easy to put them out of mind until that fateful moment. That leaves consumers largely unprepared for the issues they have to confront when an accident finally does occur as they deal with the insurance company and the auto body repair shop. Filing the insurance claim, determining who’s at fault, police reports and witness statements, collision repair estimates, rental cars, and the list goes on. And it all has to be done in a matter of days.

At the root, it’s just about finding a business you can trust, but few consumers even know where to start looking.

With that in mind, Chilton Auto Body has taken to the airwaves to give consumers a gentle reminder in a fun way as they sponsor “The Collision of the Game” on KNBR’s broadcast of the San Francisco 49ers’ football game. Each week the broadcast team of Ted Robinson, Gary Plummer select the best hit of the game along with a sponsor message from Chilton Auto Body.

Chilton Auto Body owner Mike Chilton says “We wanted to be a part of our customers’ real lives, not just when they have an accident. We think it will make them more comfortable when they do have an accident, knowing someone who has been part of their community. When you know a business you can trust, a lot of the stress just evaporates."

“Because they are already familiar with us,” added sales manager Ken Kettell, “we hope they won’t hesitate to pick up the phone or to visit us in person or on line. We’re here to help and give advice that can help them get their life back to normal sooner. After all, we’ve been doing this for more than 40 years.”
