MEET THE TEAM
By all sharing a passion for classic designs, timeless quality and cutting-edge technology, we've built a dedicated team of certified professionals at Armando's Auto Body & Paint Inc.. With a combined 50+ years of experience in auto body repair, customer service and vehicle paint industries, here's a little about us:
About the Owner:
Armando is a Santa Maria native and has been working on cars since he was 15 years old. Being a classic car enthusiast himself, what once started as a hobby, has now grown into a passion and in 2012, Armando was able to fulfill the dream of opening his very own shop. Being able to not only provide great service but also connect with his fellow community members has always been important to Armando. Nearing the span of a decade, Armando has continued to provide the quality craftsmanship and top-notch customer service he always wanted to. He's also played an active role in his local community. As the father of 3 sons, he takes pride in giving back to the Central Coast and instills the same importance to his kids and team members. Armando's Auto Body & Paint Inc. has participated in charities, fundraisers and other community events such as car shows, fairs & benefits. A few of the programs and events that Armando is happy to contribute to are the CASA foundation for Santa Barbara County, Delta High School, Bent Axels Car Club and Mad Bomberz Car Club. Take a look at our community page for more. Together with his team of knowledgeable and friendly staff members, they are providing the most courteous and trusted service around.
About the Team:
Office Manager - Mike actually wears a few hats during his typical day at the shop. Mike will be your estimate provider and is also our on-site insurance specialist. Mike carries over 25 years of experience where he worked as a claims adjuster for companies like Allstate and AAA. Before Mike became a claims adjuster, he developed experience in the body shop industry, where he has now returned to, here at Armando's Auto Body & Paint Inc.. Whether it's an insurance-related repair or if you need that annoying ding taken care of, Mike is always able to communicate efficiently with all parties to ensure a smooth dynamic for everyone with our customer's best interests always in mind.
