There is a new car repair business in Lafayette. Hardman Auto Body opened its doors in November 2014 on Times Avenue, in the building right behind American Exteriors. Owner William “Bill” Hardman, along with his sister as office manager, Tammy Hancock, are ready and willing to greet customers.
Hardman Auto Body is an all collision repair shop. They will do frame, body and glass replacement, and paintless dent repair.
Hardman said, “Some other minor things too, like if your window gets off track, we can fix that.”Hardman said, “I’ve been in the business about all my life. My dad was in it and my grandfather was in it.”
Hardman’s an I-CAR certified technician, as well as Dupont-certified for paint. He’s worked for others for many years, now he’s chosen to open his own shop.
“I just decided to do my own thing,” Hardman said.
Hancock said, “We offer A-1 customer service. It’s not just about fixing someone’s car, it’s about fixing the car and sending it back to them even better. We clean it up on the inside, vacuum it, wash the windows, wash the outside, so when Bill returns the car to them, it’s way better than it was when you brought it in.”
Operating Hardman Auto Body as a family and Christian oriented business, Hardman said, “We’re going to be based on quality. I’m going to do the work myself. I can go over everything.”
Hardman Auto Body’s hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. They can be reached at 615-666-0515. Stacey Morgan can be reached at 615-666-2440.
