  • Insurance covering your repairs? Don’t Get Steered!

    By law you have the right to insist that your insurance company allow you to use the Paint and Body Repair Shop of your choice!



Any collision your vehicle suffers has the potential of causing damage to multiple areas, not just on the surface. Our highly trained experts can help diagnose past the damage you can see, to see if there are other repairs necessary to fix it right the first time.


Whether you (or someone else) has put a small, medium, or large dent in your vehicle, Pitalo Paint & Body can make it look like it never happened. Our technicians have over 150 years of combined experience.


The services our customer’s can’t see, like repairs to a vehicle’s frame and body can be flawless, but if the paint and detail work isn’t perfect, customer’s won’t be happy. From the moment we get your vehicle, we treat it like it’s ours from start to beautiful finish.


When repairing a vehicle that’s been in a collision, if you ignore or inadequately repair frame damage, it’s like allowing a broken bone in your body to go untreated or to heal incorrectly. Eventually it will have to be dealt with, and it will be more painful and costly to fix after the fact.


We always view repairs with an eye toward saving OUR CUSTOMER’S time and money. If possible, we will refurbish any parts or components from your vehicle before considering outright replacement, and most importantly, keep you in the loop when such decisions need to be made.

“Amazing service! They advertise that they advocate to the insurance company to fix your vehicle correctly without allowing them to cut corners… this is 100 percent correct!! These guys were wonderful from start to finish!!”

Sarah F.a review on Facebook

“As of next week, I will have had the misfortune of having several of my cars repaired due to accidents. First time, I had it done at a shop recommended by my insurance company. Shoddy work, bad attitude and they even painted my dark grey interior with bright red paint… “that’s the best we can do” is what I remember from this experience, and the insurance company was no help. The next time, I took it to Pitalo’s. Friendly, patient, and they did a good job. They made adjustments and were keen that I was satisfied. They came off as honest, and that’s what I look for in folks I do business with. Since then, I’ve been back for another car and I’ll be going back there tomorrow. These are the guys you want to use on the Ocean Springs area.”

“Since April 2017, I’ve had 2 “incidents” in my Lexus! Mr. Johnny Pitalo and the crew, are the consummate professionals; friendly, knowledgeable, and they do their utmost to make the experience post “incident”, easier to deal with. Also all of their work is guaranteed for the life of the car! 5 stars and 2 Thumbs, up!”

Billie H.a review on Facebook

“They did a wonderful job with my Prius! They got the work done in a timely manner, both owners, Bubba and Johnny, are helpful and patient, and they gave me back my car cleaner than I’d left it! I will say when they called to tell me my car was ready they forgot to leave a voicemail, but other than that I’m so happy with the work and prices!”
