SAFFORD – For timely auto body repair and paint for all your vehicles, come to Zavala Auto Body Repair at 3305 S. U.S. Highway 191 just south of Discovery Park Boulevard for a free estimate and see how Roberto and Raymond can refresh your vehicle.
After working at a local dealership’s body shop for the past 17 years, Roberto Zavala decided to branch out to his own shop and brought along his right-hand man, Raymond Parr, who had worked with him for the last 12 years. Parr also worked at a dealership in Scottsdale prior to moving to the Gila Valley and they are both I-CAR trained and I-CAR certified painters.
“We decided it was time to do our own thing,” Parr said.
The family-owned and run business assists people throughout the repair process from start to finish for those who have unfortunately had their vehicles damaged and will assist with insurance claims as well. The shop takes all forms of insurance and works on all makes and models of vehicles, including cars, trucks, boats, trailers, and motorcycles. They also have a special frame rack to straighten frames bent in collisions.
The shop utilizes a NAPA color matching mixing system from Martin Senour Paints with thousands of various shades and tints to expertly match the vehicle’s original color.
Parr said the color match helps them repair vehicles to look “as good or better than before it was wrecked.”
“We’re just ready to work,” Parr said. “We’re here to get work done.”
