Albany, IN—Established in 2005, Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair is a family owned and operated business, located in Albany, IN.
After working on cars since the age of 16, Wade Wright opened his own shop in 2005, initially doing collision repair. Word quickly spread and customers kept coming back, asking him to also do mechanical work. So, the following year, Wade began doing auto repair work, too.
Today, Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair deals with everything from diesel work, engine repair, tune-ups, and transmissions to collision work like deer hits, fender benders, and all-over paint jobs.
Two years ago, Kristi and Wade expanded their repair business in a new spacious automotive repair facility next door. The company now operates out of two buildings—one dedicated to auto repair, and one dedicated to collision repair.
Wade and Kristi’s Automotive Tips for Cooler Weather
Wade and Kristi suggest its a very good idea to have your vehicle inspected prior to cooler weather, to make sure it is safe for the winter. Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair provides customers with FREE inspections with every oil change. Also, they suggest checking your antifreeze to make sure it is at the proper protection level. The longer your engine coolant goes unchanged, the less effective it becomes. Typically, your antifreeze should be replaced once a year. You should also check your brakes/brake pads and your battery to make sure it won’t drain down during a cold snap. You should also check your tires to make sure they are properly inflated and good for the winter and aren’t worn down. Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair can do all these checks and more for you.
“We go the extra mile in checking your vehicle and stand behind our work,” says Kristi. “We’re not just going to run you in and out. We are going to make sure your car is in good condition and safe for the winter. We are a family business, so we care about YOUR family.”
Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair handles around 46 cars between both shops every week.
“We are in a really good location here in Albany, so our customers come from a number of counties in East Central Indiana,” says Kristi. “We always have specials and coupons running and you can find them every month on our website.”
Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair is an I-CAR gold class shop. That means their technicians have had proper training on all OEM vehicles.
Kristi and Wade suggest, “If you are involved in a collision, it is important to immediately contact your insurance agent. It is important to know that YOU always have the right to have your vehicle repaired at any shop you know and trust. That’s important because the decision is always yours, no matter what you might hear.”
Wright Way Automotive and Collision Repair works with all insurance companies and they provide a warranty for their work.
“If you select us to do your repair work, we will help you obtain a rental car, you can pick up at our shop,” Kristi said. “You don’t have to go to a rental shop—we will do that for you. Even if you do not choose to have your car repaired here, feel free to call as as we are always happy to answer any questions you may have.”
