OUR Work

History of Trudel Auto Body

Well where do I begin. I guess it started in 1972 when I rolled my 1952 Chev pick-up. With no money to get it fixed I decided to repair it myself.

Our first shop owned was a 14 X 18 car garage beside the grocery store in Albertville, Saskatchewan. I set it up with 6 house table lamps nailed to the wall for lighting, an oil burning furnace in the corner. In the winter this thing would get red hot. I punched out a window & put in a house cooling fan for my paint exhaust fumes, and 2 farm wheel compressors hooked up together outside for air. Why I didn't blow myself up with explosive fumes, God only knows.

The first job was a Chrysler car. A neighbor, who liked what I had done with my 1952 truck, got me to repair and paint it. I worked a week on it and charged him $40.00. Back then a paint job was worth $120 to $160. My how things have changed.

Then in 1975 I built a new 4 car 32 X 60 building in Albertville, and took on my brother John as a partner. With business getting busier all the time, we eventually hired another man (body man/ painter from P.A.).

Then in 1992 SIAST of Prince Albert put on a body shop class and I was their instructor for two programs. When the program was over I kept renting the space hiring 2 more men and stayed in P.A. with John running the Albertville shop.

In 1993 we purchased our present building on Marquis Road in P.A., and hired more staff. We now have 11 employees....great guys and gals. My son Ivan now manages it with my help.

We offer many services including painting, frames, glass etc. We are truly happy with many friends and customers we've had the good fortune too give our services to over the years and thank them dearly. We hope to continue and keep servicing P.A. and area for years to come, with new and repeat customers.

Our Services for Auto Claims
We are equipted to handle all types of auto claims including windshield + glass claims, theft + mechanical damage claims as well as out of province claims,
we are fully accredited by SGI.

Please Note:

Modified Refinish with Full Clear
If your SGI claim says "modified refinish with full clear", this means that SGI is paying only to repair the exact damage related to the accident, refinish only that spot, and clear coat the complete panel. This ultimately means that if you have previous scratches, dents, rust etc., these areas will be clear coated over. If you would like these areas repaired at the same time please bring it to our attention before repairs are started so that a separate private estimate can be created.

SGI may require us to use used and/ or after market parts on your vehicle.

Car Care Tips

To keep your vehicle's finish looking great, we recommend some of the following tips:

Avoid washing your vehicle with hard water.

Avoid commercial auto washes for 90 days.

Hand wash your vehicle with warm water and a mild auto wash   detergent in a shaded area.

Remove stains and bird droppings as soon as possible to prevent acid etching of the new paint finish.

Avoid drying your vehicle with a dry cloth to prevent scratching the finish.

Avoid spilling chemicals such as antifreeze or coolant on the finish.

Avoid scraping snow or ice from the vehicle's finished area.
