About Us

  …the technical part

We pride ourselves in making your vehicle look like it has never been here. Collision repair, glass repair and replacement, and detailing are our specialties. Our 27,000 square foot facility can accommodate everything from a minor dent to a major collision-damaged vehicle. All of our shop equipment is state-of-the-art. In fact, we’re one of the most modern, environmentally-friendly collision centers in the nation.

It’s as close to home as we can make it.

When you stop in, make sure you say hi to Dutch, our “labradoodle!” He’s always around to greet our customers and provide a welcome distraction from the often stressful business of having your car repaired. Plus, Arnold’s has four drive-in estimating bays that keep our customers comfortable in volatile, Midwest weather and our friendly reception area has satellite TV, refreshments, a kitchen table, and children’s play area.

We’ve got a reputation of excellent craftsmanship in collision repair.

That reputation didn’t emerge over night. Duayne and Marion Arnold founded Arnold’s in 1969. Back then, it was a small family-owned business located in Northwest Davenport. Their son, John, later joined them and eventually took over managing the business. Now, he owns Arnold’s Body Shop.

Over the years, we have grown and improved our equipment and services. However, our largest asset is our staff of highly trained and skilled collision repair professionals. Every Arnold’s employee understands the importance of getting your vehicle repaired properly and back to you promptly. That’s why we all strive toward the same standard of quality…

The completed vehicle must visually look as though,
and operate/drive as though, the vehicle has never been here.


Mission Statement

Arnold’s Body Shop, Inc. is committed to being recognized as the standard for craftsmanship in collision repair – a family tradition of customer satisfaction serving the greater Quad City Metropolitan Area since 1969.

At Arnold’s Body Shop, Inc., our primary driving force is to satisfy our customer’s needs by providing complete, superior service. We always strive for excellence through total customer satisfaction.

…the people part

At  Arnold’s, we all know that we can make your vehicle look like it has never been here. There’s a whole other part of repairing a vehicle with craftsmanship in mind. It’s the people part !  There are 25 of us at Arnold’s.  (Plus Winston, Sophie and me.  I’m Dutch……and Winston and Sophie are my 4 legged friends.)  Those 25 folks are a family.  And when you add-in the spouses, significant others and kids, there’s 70 of us !  When the 25 make decisions on repairing your vehicle, we do so with all 70 of us in mind.  We repair your vehicle so it’s safe for your family.  It’s the same way we repair our own vehicles…….quality repairs with craftsmanship…….and we put our families back in our vehicles knowing our families will be safe.  To say it another way: what is safe for our family, is safe for yours !  That’s Arnold’s CARE……the people part.

      So, how do we define Arnold’s CARE ?  It’s really not all that complicated.

                         It’s the technical part, and it’s the people part.

   …from our family to your family: Arnold’s CARE !!!
