In 1963, Bill DeFouw purchased the GM dealership in Downtown Lafayette, IN. In 1965 He moved it to its current location 320 Sagamore Pkwy S. in Lafayette.
Since its inception, the collision center has tripled in square footage and has added multiple technicians. We now service all makes and models with factory trained technicians in both BMW and General Motors. In 2012, we began to spray waterborne paint and completely renovated our paint shop. We installed 3 new paint stations capable of painting all vehicles including buses, RV’s, and semi tractors. In the Spring of 2013, we opened our state of the art office facility based on one promise, CUSTOMERS 1ST!
At DeFouw Collision Center, we strongly believe that collision repair estimates should be free and on your schedule. If you’re in need of auto body repair, auto painting or other collision center services in the Lafayette area, you can trust that the team at DeFouw Collision Center understands that this is both a stressful time and one that does not allow for much flexibility in your schedule. You don’t deserve the runaround and we promise not to ever do that to any of our customers. All of our estimates are 100% free and we do everything we can to accommodate your schedule and needs in order to make the entire vehicle repair process as painless as possible.
As a part of a dealer group, we have access to exclusive technical information that other shops can’t or are not willing to pay to get the information to repair your vehicle properly.
