We are a second-generation family owned and operated business. Originally located in Nanaimo, Terminal Auto Body’s founder, Al Descoteau, moved the business to Parksville when the family moved in 1979. Al recently retired, and Mark Descoteau and his sister Sari Smith have taken over operations.

One reason that Terminal Auto Body has been successful for so long is we have always been committed to keeping up-to-date with vehicle repair technology. We recently invested in specialized aluminum repair equipment, for example.

Not only are we continually upgrading our shop and repair equipment, we also invest in our employees by offering training seminars on a regular basis.

We are an accredited ICBC c.a.r. shop VALET and Glass Express facility, so our customers enjoy the following associated benefits:

  • On-site estimates for eligible vehicle and auto glass repairs
  • No need to visit a claims centre (for most estimates)
  • Direct-to-ICBC billing
  • Repair work guaranteed for as long as you own your vehicle

In addition to ICBC claims, we accept claims from all private insurance providers.

Our customers have been loyal over the years, and we have the mid-island community to thank for helping to keep our business thriving.

We offer valet service — complimentary pickup and delivery of your vehicle when requested (within 30 km of our shop). This means that we can stop by your home or office, pick up your vehicle and bring it in to be repaired. When your repairs are complete, we can also deliver your vehicle back to you.

Please let us know in advance if you need a replacement vehicle, so we can have one ready for you.
