Our History

James Auto Body is a family business started by George James. The James family moved to Hendersonville, Tennessee in November of 1987 and by 1989, George James began establishing a customer base by working out of his 1969 El Camino. Early customers were mostly used car lots in Madison, Tennessee.

The first shop was opened in 1990 off of Rockland Road. James Auto Body quickly outgrew the one bay garage and began renting a slightly larger four bay garage with a paint booth in Hendersonville.

After about a year James Auto Body again outgrew it's current location. This time, George James began seeking out his own piece of commercial property for his business. When a lot in an industrial park off of Saundersville Road became available, the James family jumped at the opportunity. James Auto Body has been run out of this same location since 1994, and was expanded two years later to accommodate the growing business.
