Precision Collision Service

New ownership, same exceptional service


For business partners and close friends Tim Gibb and Corey Smith, April 27 was a milestone day; for Lou Pelosi, the longtime owner of Precision Collision Service in Cranston, it was a sentimental one.  April 27 was a day of beginnings and endings for these three men as the final signatures were penned on the “purchase of sale” that officially transferred ownership of Precision Collision from Pelosi to Gibb and Smith.  Today, this landmark business on Wellington Avenue has two new owners ~ and a new start.

Precision Collision Service, a highly reputable auto body and repair shop which first opened its doors in 1996, is home to a talented crew of technicians who use the most advanced technology to repair today’s most advanced vehicles. As Tim Gibb, an experienced auto technician with well over 38 years in the industry, explains: “If it has wheels, we will do the work”!

Working alongside Gibb to keep the wheels rolling at Precision is Smith, a hard-working and dedicated CPA and CFO of a national logistics company who joined forces with Gibb to make both of their entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Together, they are a formidable team which has devoted the past year to working with Pelosi to make a smooth transition for this successful and enduring business.  All three men, with Pelosi as a consultant, are committed to providing an outstanding experience to their customers, both new and old. 

Gibb and Smith want to assure the loyal customers of Precision Collision that Pelosi gave them his full endorsement, knowing that something that he had curated for over 25 years was not something he parted with lightly.  It is important for their customers to know that this transfer proceeded with support from all parties, and that Precision Collision is thriving, growing, and expanding!

On any given day at this busy auto shop, there are vehicles up on lifts and technicians studying every detail of damage, matching paint samples in the shop’s sophisticated paint room or putting the finishing touches on a major repair.  Though the shop changed ownership, Gibb kept on some of Pelosi’s most skilled technicians including crew members Leo Gonsalves and Robert Christopher.  From start to finish, this team is professional, trustworthy, meticulous, and supplied with state-of-the-art equipment to repair your vehicle, from the inside out.  Gibb and his crew are regularly trained in the industry’s latest advancements and have been mentored by the best in the field.

Tim and Corey are proud of what Precision Collision offers which is a seamless experience from the start of your repair, through the insurance process, to the final product:  a vehicle that has been restored to its original condition.

If you need auto body or mechanical repairs, make your first call to Precision Collision Service at 401-461-DENT (3368).  The team here will take care of the rest.  Visit them at 350 Wellington Avenue and check out their work on Facebook!  Open Monday ~ Friday, 8am – 4pm.
