Its not everyday you get to live your dream! It was always Tim’s passion to own his own auto body repair facility.
Back in 2003 while at family camp at Manhattan Beach in Ninette, Tim went for a drive with his wife Tricia to see the shop advertised for sale in the Boissevain Recorder. It took some praying and convincing, but Tricia got on board and moved their young family three hours south to start their new business. It was official in 2004, and it’s been a journey ever since! The family is now all grown up and starting adventures of their own. In 2018 their oldest son Jordon married his sweetheart Nicole and now reside in Winnipeg. Their daughter, Samantha has transferred to Grimsby, Ontario. Tim Jr still lives in town and is super happy to fill up your gas at the local Co-op Gas Bar. Silas, the youngest is graduating high school this year and is looking to continue his education.
Tim grew up in the auto body trade and later received his Red Seal. Tim enjoys putting his heart in each claim and/or repair that leaves the shop. Tim respects each customer’s vehicle and does his best to make it right. Tim stays up to date on the ever changing trends in the industry and continues to educate himself and his staff. Tim is excited to have new equipment for the business so we can meet the standards expected by the industry and by MPI.
Tim has a great team behind him that support his vision and passion . Border Auto Body can address all your vehicle’s concerns, whether it’s body repair, mechanical maintenance, tire replacement/repair, or glass replacement/repair, we are here for you!
