About Us

Our Home-Grown Values are What Set Us Apart at Galen’s

Founded in a single-car garage in 2006, Galen’s Auto Body was built on hard work, determination and-self discipline. Even with the late nights and early mornings, Galen Hassler (owner) always knew what he wanted to do – work and advocate for the people in his hometown, give back to the community, make his late parents proud, and raise his daughters in the process. He believes that the community is his lifeline and he has made sure Galen’s Auto Body reflects that in all that we do; including handpicking members of our team that share the same dedication and skill.

Now the premier auto body shop and collision repair center in Columbia, MO, we exercise a sincere commitment to putting our customers’ needs first. Our entire team is geared towards providing top-notch customer satisfaction and repairing your vehicle with the same hard work, determination and self-discipline that facilitated our growth and positioned us where we are today.

Whether it’s a small ding or a full collision repair job we are here for you, to earn your trust as well as provide you with the absolute best service and repair in the industry.

Meet Galen Hassler, Owner

"Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. Plain and simple. I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence."

Ricky Bobby

It has always been cars for Galen Hassler. From racing to fixing—they have always been a part of his life. Taking after his late father, he fell in love with racing cars at a very early age. With several wins under his belt, it shows. Very few can say they have won every Hot Laps race they ever participated in. Galen can. And with two championships, as well as rookie of the year in every class he’s raced in—it’s safe to say he was born for this.

It is his love for racing cars and passion for his work that eventually drove him to open his own auto body shop that evolved into a full collision repair center. Galen still works tirelessly to instill compassion for people and the good ethics—hard work, determination, self-discipline and kindness—he learned from his parents into every repair that comes through his shop.
