All work is done in house by auto body and frame repair specialist including glass replacement and painting. We mix our own paint. This is done using a state of the art color mixing system. This ensures you get the best color match for your vehicle.  For your convenience we open at 7:30 AM and close at 5:30 PM.


We are members of many local and national service associations including:

Ken and Jean Zak moved to Lakeville in 1982. It was a small town of around 15,000 people. Ken had a passion for cars. He decided in 1984 to open Lakeville Collision. He wanted to provide his community with a honest and professional destination to fix their car. 



Ken and Jean are passionate about teaching their 4 children to work hard. They showed the kids that nothing in life is free or handed to you. Nick, Brian, Ashely and April all started helping in the shop at young age. All 4 of them help in the shop. Nick is our lead body tech, Brian is our painter, Ashley helps in the office and April helps with computer technology.


All four kids are grown up with kids of their own. Ken and Jean love having their grandkids helping in the shop! In the photo above, Connor is helping Grandpa Ken find the correct parts to a vehicle. On the right, their grand daughter Carissa has her clip board and is ready to keep Uncle Nick on schedule!

"I was treated with excellent service and very happy with the price and work done on my car! The estimate was much more affordable and friendlier service than my first estimate. Excellent work! Thanks again!"
