National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is Saturday March 29th. This celebrates small business owners everywhere.


We have received a few calls about Perm-a-Shines. As soon as the weather breaks we will start scheduling them. Come on Spring weather!!


We have reached a few milestones that we want to share. Our body man, Ron, celebrated 10 years of service with us. Our body man, PJ, celebrated 40 years of service with us. (That is not a typo ... 40 years!!) We celebrate their years of service, their professional knowledge and their friendships. Having them as part of our team is what helps us bring quality work to all of our customers.

In 1947 Padula’s Body Shop opened its doors in Akron. We spent over 40 years serving the area with their collision needs. In 1989 we moved to our current location in Tallmadge. We continue to serve Akron, Tallmadge and all surrounding counties.

Our slogan “We meet by accident” is very true but once we meet and earn your trust you have proven to remain a valued customer for life. We are grateful for your loyalty. With our 65 years of experience, we’ve seen it all – but more importantly – we’ve fixed it all too!

To help us celebrate our 65th year, we want to hear from you.
• Tell us your stories of how Padula’s Body Shop has served you,
• How 3 generations of your family have been doing business with 3 generations of our Padula’s Body Shop family,
• How our Padula’s Body Shop family has helped to put your family back on the road again.

Share your stories with us by emailing us at [email protected].
Who knows… maybe we will even post your stories on our wall.


Happy new year everyone! 2012 will be a year of great thanks for us. This July we will celebrate 65 years in business. As we count down to the month of our exciting anniversary we want to remind you ... Word of mouth is our best advertising ... We would not be successful without you. Thank you!!


By the looks of things outside tonight the winter driving season has arrived. If you have the unfortunate event of an auto accident this season please remember we have been involved with tens of thousands of accidents and can help you every step of the way. We appreciate any referrals you can send to us. Please remind your friends & family to tell us you sent them.


Again this year Padula's Body Shop is a sponsor of your Cleveland Browns! You can listen to the game today on 97.5 WONE where you will hear our commercials. Go Browns!!!


For those of you who read MUSCLE MUSTANGS & FAST FORDS magazine check out the October 2011 issue, pages 42-47. Trick Flow Specialties' 99 GT is featured. We are mentioned in the article. This was a very fun project for us and we were proud to be part of the project team!!


Reminder to everyone ... THIS IS PERMASHINE TIME! Our permashines consist of simoniz wax with an acrylic sealer. This is 2 coats of wax on the entire outside of your car applied with a low speed buffer. There will be no burns and no swirls. This seals your paint and protects it from environmental fallout. Call us for an appointment.


We are very excited you have found our page and "like" us! We are on the push to spread the word about our new page. Please tell your friends about it so they can "like" us too.

Just wanted to thank the crew at Padula's for tackling a job no one else could do on my 2014 RS Camaro. When they were finished it looked better than when I bought it. Again your work is greatly appreciated. Rick
