About Sichel’s Auto Body

What We Believe at Sichel’s

Sichel’s Auto body was created on the belief of one simple quote:
“The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

We are an independent family-owned business with over 60 years of family experience behind us. As a company, we have never believed that our customers will be fooled by freebies, advertising gimmicks or money-back bribes to get their business.

We hold to the simple idea that with quality work comes quality customers. With the vast majority of our business coming from return customers and referrals, we believe that statement has prove to be 100% correct.

We at Sichel’s Auto Body go the extra mile, providing uncompromised quality body work, frame and painting. Expert paint matching is our specialty.

Customer Service is number one with us. Just get your vehicle to us with a claim number and insurance company information, and we will take the hurt out of your accident–worry free. We will handle your needs!

Ron Sichel, Owner

Ron Sichel began his autobody career when he was 16 years old. From his uncle to his late father, autobody work is in his blood. He started at Espinosa’s Autobody in the late 70s as an autobody tech and painter. He then went on to manage Kassin’s Chevrolet-Oldsmobile in Healdsburg.

After a number of years and a lot of hard work, he began Sichel’s Autobody. It is Ron’s diehard work ethic and extraordinary attention to detail that has helped Sichel’s Autobody to become one of the best shops in Sonoma County.

Through the years we have kept up with all of the education and training needed to become the best. Most of our employees have over 12 years experience, which gives us the ability to not only take care of your car, but take care of you. Email: ron.sichel@sichelsautobody.com
