A Few words about us

Our Team

Marina West Auto Body is a family run collision repair facility that has been serving the West Los Angeles area for over three decades. Our qualified staff understands the vehicle restoration process, and we’re here to help you navigate your way through it. We work with all insurance companies, and once you drop off your vehicle, we’ll take over from there. Our years of experience will help you get the quality repairs you deserve and bring your car back to its pre-accident condition.

We’ve built our reputation on putting the customer first. Your satisfaction and trust is important to us and are key to a good working relationship. Our customers become a part of our extended family, and we make your problems, our problems. The attention to detail and friendly staff will help you make the best of a bad situation, and we strive to make it as stressless as possible.


Stan, “The Body Man,” started running the auto body repair business in 1981. His goal was to make Marina West, “The Best in the West.” In 1982, Stan’s wife-to-be, Peggy, had her radio stolen. She was once a member of our extended family, until she became an actual member. Stan’s brother-in-law, Slawek, came on board next, and a week later, our body man, Walter, joined our crew. Both Slawek and Walter have been with us for almost 20 years. Our painter, Frank, joined the family in 2005 and his years of experience show through in his quality paint jobs. After some time off, Stan and Peggy returned to the shop, along with Kashia, Stan’s niece. You’ll find them all back in the office working hard to get your car repaired right. And let’s not forget Stan’s daughter, Christine, the webmistress who has made this site possible.
