I got an estimate on the spot, the work was completed a little earlier than he estimated and within the estimated cost. Plus, there were Christmas cookies. Gary did a wonderful job. The paint matches perfectly. My car looks like new and he is a lot of fun, too.
I haven’t had many dealings with auto body repair. From the moment I walked into Gary Hold Collision I knew I need not look any further. He looked at my car tapped on his computer and told me the exact cost. He said seven work days finished in 5. A tee limb hit car while doing 40MPH. New hood , repaired the right front fender, repaired the A pillar. Had to removed windshield without breaking it. Great work and worked with my insurance company. I do highly recommend Holder Collision. I’d give more stars if they were available. They even cleaned the inside and washed it before I picked it up.

There are many auto collision shops in the Hendersonville, NC area and many with very good reviews. I chose Gary Holder Collision because I was newer to the area and familiar with where the shop was located. My Ford F-150 needed several body repairs so I called and spoke to Gary. Honestly, after speaking to him, how could you not automatically love the guy? He told me exactly what I needed to do - call the insurance company to get the ball rolling - and that he would handle the rest. He did just that. He has a wrecker service that will pick up your vehicle and tow it to him with no charge out of pocket (he handles that later). He takes pictures if necessary and sends them to the insurance company and follows up with them on any discrepancies with additional photos and information, if needed. He will also set up rental car service if that is covered by your insurance policy. I had the truck in for several repairs a few months ago and about a week ago had our truck towed to him...again. How could I not go to Gary? You deal with the owner personally, he handles everything from start to finish, keeps in constant contact and his shop does an impeccable job. I have to say he is one of the jolliest people I have met thus far in Hendersonville and an absolute joy to work with. He tries to find used parts - if desired - and where applicable, to save on costs. No payment is required until the work is complete and the time frame is very reasonable. No surprises and very honest. If you've ever been out on Upward Road near Bojangles and Cracker Barrel and passed a lot full of Amazon vans...that's Gary's shop. If Amazon can trust him with their fleet, that says a lot. I absolutely recommend him and his crew!

THIS COMPANY IS ONE OF A KIND!!! Folks I just wanna say that I'm a little late in typing out this review for this company and I apologize to them for that. I got a plate full handed to my shortly after I got my car back about this devils brew called Covid that attacked my whole family out West. Now that their beginning to mend thanks to The Grace of God and blessings of my Lord Jesus I want to give kudos to the guy that hired this guy called Gary that worked diligently during my needs to get my Highlander repaired. This man called Gary has been a blessing to me by taking time to make sure all my needs were met with the insurance company and performing a outstanding job to complete the repairs needed to get me back on the road again. This man called Gary deserves a raise by that guy that offered him that job at this body shop many years ago. My hats off to you Gary my friend, and thanks for your friendliness, courtesy and professional standard that it takes to maintain the business as you have that serves the publics needs... Tim S.

They did an exceptional job on my car, a 2006 Kia. My front end, bumper headlight was smashed.. When I picked the car up I couldn't tell it had any damage. Plus they were courteous, very reasonable and timely. The work was done when they said it would be done. Great people too very professional!

Mr. Holder and his team did a great job repairing damage due to being rear ended. He worked directly with the insurance company, and seamlessly got me into a rental car while the work was done. Pricing was clear, and the car was finished looking like new. We'll use his service again if the need arises, and recommend him to acquaintances.

Our Story

Originally based in Greenville, SC, Gary Holder ran his own auto body shop for 39 years until 2006. He subsequently worked at a Ford dealership in Travelers Rest for another 6 years. In 2012, illness forced Gary to take a 3-year sabbatical from work altogether. Having fully recovered by 2015, he purchased the Flat Rock, NC building late that year and officially opened Gary Holder Collision Center
on January 1, 2016.
