About

Gallo-Miller Paint & Collision Repair Inc.  was established by Bill Gallo and Dave Miller in August 1999.

The business is locally owned, operated, and you deal directly with the owners, Bill and Dave.

Bill and Dave  entered the collision repair industry in 1978 as collision repair apprentices.

Bill started with custom painting which led to body and frame repairs. Bill worked in several shops where he received training in refinishing techniques, color matching and unibody / frame repair. In 1984 Bill went to work for a major automotive dealership handling the repair needs for Cadillac, Oldsmobile and GMC customers as well as other manufacturers.

Bill began as a working shop foreman and was soon promoted to shop general manager due to his exceptional  organizational skills and a vision for the collision repair industry. In 1996 a major collision repair facility, focusing on collision repair, called on Bill to operate one of their facilities. With a desire and love for the collision repair industry, Bill saw this as an opportunity to focus on collision repair exclusively and took the position. Bill quickly refined policies and procedures at that shop and turned it into a quality focused shop. That shop was bought out by a large corporation and the focus changed again and was soon about how many repaired vehicles can be produced in a month.

Dave entered his way into auto body repair as an apprentice and soon developed into a universal repair technician and damage estimator. The first auto body facility where Dave was employed the owner’s wife became ill. It was necessary for the owner to be with his ailing wife and Dave assumed the responsibility of running the shop at an early age. After twelve (12) years as a repair technician Dave was approached by a major insurance carrier to become an estimator. After much thought and deliberation he made the choice to join that company. The experience was invaluable and Dave gained great insight on how the insurance claim industry operated. After seven years Dave’s roots began pulling him back to the auto body repair industry. In 1997 Dave joined the collision repair facility where Bill was working. That facility was bought out in 1998 and then the focus of that facility changed from the customer to how many repaired vehicles can be produced.

Due to their love of the industry and passion for the customer this did not sit well with Bill or Dave. They made a decision to open and operate a facility where the main focus was the customer, quality repair and where they would be in charge. They invested their life savings into the business and are involved in your repairs from beginning to end.
