About Randy's Collision
Local family offers fast and professional auto body service
Local residents Randy and Deb Bradley own and operate Randy's Collision, located at 4898 Route 219 in Great Valley, NY. Randy started off his career in the auto body business working for some new car dealerships. After some years of doing that, he decided to go out on his own and he started servicing cars out of a two-bay garage at his home back in 1979.
Randy continued working there for many years and while doing so, he built the building that now houses Randy’s Collision. He first built it to serve as a local car auction that he and his partners named Great Valley Auto Auction. The auto auction business operated out of the building for about seven years, but it proved less lucrative than they had hoped.
Therefore, Randy bought out his partners and transformed the auction building into its current form, housing Randy’s Collision Repair Shop and Used Cars. Randy has continued actively running the business ever since, providing high-quality complete automobile collision repairs and professional painting services, along with used car sales to the area residents. According to Randy’s wife Deb Bradley, both services they offer each account for equal shares of their yearly earnings.
That means they have plenty to keep them busy year-round, even though the collision side of the business experiences some down time and so does the used car sales side. According to Randy, winter months prove busy for the collision business, whereas used car sales generally pick up during the summer.
A couple of months in the fall, before and during hunting season prove especially busy for the collision side of their business. Randy said they receive about a quarter of their yearly collision repair jobs during that time period. They recently had two jobs in particular that had cost thousands of dollars each to repair, and both resulted from deer-related accidents.
The technicians work hard to keep up with the demand for quick repairs. They will quite often work on more than one vehicle at a time so they can work more efficiently. This allows them to switch back and forth between vehicles while they wait for primer to dry or for parts to arrive for one of the vehicles, for instance.
Randy had this to say about their quick and efficient service, “We get the jobs in and we get them out fast. We have a lot of people who are amazed at how fast we get their vehicles done.”
This results from the several years of experience Randy’s crew have accrued. Randy’s son Kirk started helping his father in the shop while still a young boy, worked there through high school and stayed on after graduating. He has taken up the Body Shop Manager position. Randy and Kirk have acquired two great technicians, Ryan Schey and Mike Jennings, to work alongside them. Randy said they have proven extremely trustworthy and dependable, as well as very experienced.
Their reliability has proven extremely valuable for him as he had this to say, “I can go on vacation without worrying about how they’re running the shop.” Randy knows he can always depend on them to deliver professional service.
To better serve their customers, Randy and his crew also offer 24-hour on-call towing services in case someone gets into a severe enough accident and can’t drive their vehicle away afterwards. This proves to be just one of the many reasons Randy’s Collision has become revered with the local residents for its excellent customer service. They also welcome all insurance work.
A couple other aspects of their business have made quite an impression on their customers as well. As Randy said, “We’re real fair on our prices for both our repairs and our towing service. We also offer free loaner cars for major repairs.”
If you ever experience one of life’s little road-related mishaps, you can rest assured that Randy and his crew can take care of you.
