Serving the Tri-State for nearly 4
Graley Autobody began in a small local
garage in 1971. We moved to a large facility
in Chesapeake, Ohio in the early 1980s and
moved to our current complex, located in
downtown Huntington, West Virginia, in 1988.
Although the Graley Autobody family began
with just Jim and his cousin Don working in
tandem, Graley Autobody now employs a large
workforce with Chad Lewis as the body shop
manager. We have been proud to serve the

would be just as proud to serve you.

area's best businesses. That Year, Graley Autobody won "Best in the Tri State" for

it go to our head. We have won the same

in a row.
Association with Your Insurance
We work closely with most insurance companies
and we have a special relationship with
All insurance carriers have slightly different written and unwritten claims procedures
with which we are very familiar. In
preparing your free estimate, we make every
effort to use our expertise in writing a
thorough and comprehensive report of
apparent damage. However, an estimate is
just that, an estimate. If hidden damage is
found, we immediately notify you and the
insurance company about the necessary
supplemental repairs. After we obtain
approval for the hidden damage, the repair
process is completed.
We have received full certification from the
National Institute for Automotive Service
Excellence. Upon passing at least one exam and after providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, is not for life. To remain certified, those with ASE credentials must be retested every five years.
World Leader in Automotive Finishes

existence which are manufactured by PPG, an
