Welcome to the Expert Paint and Body Shop, where your vehicle will be treated as if it were our own. The auto body shop – also known as the ‘bodyshop’ around Eston – is located in the small town of Eston, Saskatchewan where it has been Family owned and operated since 1957. Expert Paint and Body Shop specializes in collision repair and paint jobs but our services also include windshield repair and replacement, wheel alignments, dint repair and SGI insurance work. We have even done paint jobs on some non automotive parts, like doors, fridges, and bicycles.
Walter Bahm, Ralph Ricketts, and Basel Shaw built the Expert Paint and Body Shop in 1957 with the help of McLeod’s Brothers Construction who were involved in the cement work. Walter set out to build a business that would unknowingly become the business place and career paths for three of his sons. In the early days Walter, Ralph, and Basel were the three employees. They decided on the name “Expert Paint and Body Shop” for their auto body shop. The body shop was originally built as a quonset type building at 32′ by 48′ but was later expanded to 32′ by 80′. After some time Walter bought out his partners and became the sole owner of the Expert Paint and Body Shop.
The vision for the Expert Paint and Body Shop has always been the same: to give the town of Eston and surrounding areas honest, professional, and affordable automobile repair services. Walter owned and ran the shop until he passed away in 2000, leaving the auto body shop to his sons Dale and Byron. Thom joined his brothers at the shop in 2003.
Today’s Experts are Dale, Byron, and Thom Bahm. The Expert Paint and Body Shop specializes in collision repair but we also do a very wide range of other things as well. You could call us your family car doctor.
“In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”
