The People Behind the Magic

Bob and Cheryl Anderson opened Anderson's Autobody in 1989. Bob’s family had always worked in the automotive repair industry, so he decided to keep up the family tradition with his own body shop in Ponderay, Idaho.


Today, the business has grown to serve residents and visitors to the Lake Pend Oreille region, three surrounding counties (Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai) and visitors from Montana, Washington and Canada.

With the influx of younger drivers and families who seek a high quality of life in North Idaho, we have steadily and thoughtfully evolved in the Digital Age with tech-forward auto repairs and virtual communication with insurance, parts and materials vendors, and customers alike.


To minimize an already disruptive situation ("my car is in the shop!"), our customer service has expanded to online scheduling, webchat, text messaging, mobile photo uploads, digital video, email and local social media. That way, you can connect with us wherever you are, 24/7, all year long. Look for us on NextDoor, Facebook, Instagram, Google, Apple CarPlay, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp, LinkedIn, Indeed and Glassdoor – whether you’re a customer, camper or future job candidate!
