About Us

Since 1982, the Car Crafters’ Team has provided the best Collision, Mechanical, and Glass repair in New Mexico. Our mission is to be the body shop of choice for customers, insurance companies, and employees, while providing the highest quality and safest repairs available today.

Jim Guthrie, owner and first technician of Car Crafters, started a body shop in his parent’s garage as a teenager. After filling up the cul-de-sac with cars, Jim’s parents told him to focus on college or find a shop and move out of their garage. From that moment on, Jim has been pursuing his love for repairing and customizing cars.

Today, you can visit Car Crafters’ state-of-the-art facility on Montano. With the highest quality equipment and certified technicians, Car Crafters can take care of all your auto repair needs. From collision repair and oil changes, to fixing that nick in your windshield, Car Crafters is your One-Stop-Shop for all your vehicle needs!

On top of delivering the highest quality and safest repairs, Car Crafters also makes customer convenience and comfort a top priority. Customers can relax in our beautiful front lobby and enjoy refreshments. We offer Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and Java Joe’s coffee while you wait. We also have our awesome drift videos playing in the lobby.

Our technicians and staff are professionally trained to handle all types of car repair needs. Car Crafters is the one stop body shop for everybody’s vehicles.

We also provide an onsite Enterprise Rent-A-Car and representatives from some of the top insurance companies to make sure you have a timely visit, each and every time.
