    about us

    We have served our community for over 47 years in the

    Collision Repair Service in Seattle.

    Werner's Crash Shop was opened in late 1973 by Werner Kozber at 710 Taylor Avenue North on the south side of Queen Anne near the Seattle Center. It has been in continuous operation since that time. During the period from 1982 to 1992 Werner had two locations. The original on Taylor Avenue and another at 2600 -15th Avenue West on the west side of Queen Anne. The second shop provided additional space to process the work from four automotive dealerships in the downtown area. As the dealerships moved away from downtown Seattle Werner decided in 1992 to scale back to the original location. He leased the building on 15th West to Accucraft Collision.

    Today the original shop at 710 Taylor Avenue North services the Queen Anne, Magnolia and downtown areas. After thirty six years Werner's Crash Shop is still going strong and moving forward. In the last several years many insurance companies have instituted programs using specialized computer programs and photographs to estimate work. Werner's has incorporated this new technology as part of the business. We are also part of Farmer's Insurance Company's referral program as well as servicing other fleet accounts.

    A continuing program of employee education insures top quality work. All employees are encouraged to become certified through the programs of the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence. Werner's is a member of the Automotive Craftsman Association which requires adoption of a code of ethics which places customer safety as the number one criteria and guarantees that every customer receives an itemized list of the repairs performed.

    Just a note to thank you for the great job you did on my 1999 Honda Accord.  I got "t-boned" by a young girl talking on her cell phone who blew the stop sign.  You did an excellent job restoring my vehicle to perfect condition.

    We continue to be amazed at the generosity of our business community!  Thanks to your recent donation of detailing, wet sanding, polishing and replacing the emblem on the 944 1984 Porsche in the amount of $500, we were able to sell the car at our auction on February 3rd for $5500.

    Just a note to say thank you for all your help during the past two weeks.  I was able to feel confident that my car would be well taken care of by the way you took care of all the details - ensuring that a liability letter was received by 34th St. Garage, setting up my rental & by being able to do the job within a week from the incident. Thanks for all your help!!  My 98 Honda looks brand new again!
