Johnny Mock’s Auto Body Shop opened in 1952 by John Mock Sr.  The original shop, located on Lime Street in Turtle Creek across from the playground, was known as Johnny Mock’s Auto Beauty Center.  In 1958 John Mock Sr. decided to move the location to Church Street also located in Turtle Creek.  John Mock Jr. took over the Church Street location in 1976 after the retirement of John Mock Sr.  The business grew steadily and eventually in 1981 relocated to 1271 Lower Rodi Road in Wilkins Township.  An expansion of the business occurred in 1990 when the adjacent building was acquired and is now included in the present day location of Johnny Mock’s Auto Body Shop.  Over time more family members joined the team. Johnny’s wife Carol became office manager in 1985 and son Jason is working as office controller and learning all aspects of the business.

From day one John Mock Sr. took special care of his customers, always spending time to educate them on their repair process and making sure that their vehicles were returned to them in pre-accident condition. He was a practical and creative business owner, known for his gentle nature and unique sense of humor.  Long term customers and community members will tell you the shop has the same warm and welcoming feeling that it had in the early years.

Johnny Mock’s Auto Body Shop has been a leader in their industry since day one. The shop is I-CAR Gold Class Certified, which requires that the repair technicians are trained with the latest, most up-to-date industry procedures. All auto body technicians are also AWS (American Welding Standards) certified in steel and aluminum welding.  The staff is dedicated to assisting customers through the insurance claim procedure and take pride in the repair work on each and every vehicle.
