All About Uptown

Uptown Body & Fender is a company that is concerned about you as much as your car. We are committed to making your vehicle repair a smooth, hassle-free experience from the estimate to your final departure.

At Uptown you will find genuine service and craftsmen who bring many decades of expertise in collision and auto body repair to the job.

Owners Lisandro Allende and Giovanna Tanzillo founded their business with vision that a big part of service is not only the dedication to the highest quality of repair, but assisting the customer with insurance claims, car rentals and their busy schedules. The whimsical office with its complimentary espresso and tea bar, and classical music playing in the background helps to put customers at ease, reinforcing Uptown's dedication to the highest quality of customer service.

To learn more about the vision behind their unique body shop, read about Uptown Body & Fender at World Architecture News and The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine. The body shop's sleek and original design was created by Oakland's Ace Architects.
