About Caldwell Collision in Monroe, NC

Caldwell Collision was established in 2000 and opened our doors in 2002. During that interim period our founder/owner, Jeff Caldwell, met with several luxury brand representatives to discuss the future of collision repair in order to design a facility that specifically caters to repairing high-end luxury brands. These special designs include a wall to separate the repair shop from the paint shop making the paint shop one large clean room, a separate room with all of the specialized equipment necessary to perform structural aluminum repairs, larger repair bays, and two state-of-the-art paint booths with sealed mixing room and walkway.

At Caldwell Collision our mission statement is to “provide customers with a comfortable atmosphere while combining the highest level of collision repair and concierge-style customer service in order to create lasting personal relationships within a business setting”.


All of our employees, including those working in the office, participate in training with brands such as I-CAR, ASE, Mercedes-Benz, and Tesla.The collision repair industry is rapidly changing with auto body repair procedures being updated daily in some cases and with that, we have found one of the biggest issues we face is the lack of education regarding the materials and methods necessary to perform repairs per manufacturer guidelines.


While our technicians in the shop ensure the vehicles are repaired back to pre-accident condition, in the office we focus on providing educational information to all customers throughout the collision repair & auto body repair process so they leave knowing exactly what we did and why we did it.


Combined our technicians have over 60 years experience repairing high-end and luxury vehicles and have completed hundreds of hours of extensive training at I-CAR, ASE, Mercedes-Benz, and Tesla training centers around the country.

We have over 14 years of experience repairing aluminum and structural aluminum damage so as more manufacturers increase their use of aluminum we are a natural choice for their Certification Programs, which is why we were invited to become Ford and Cadillac Aluminum Certified. We proudly repair all makes/models and provide FREE ESTIMATES at both of our locations in Indian Trail. Call us today to setup an appointment for an auto body repair estimate or to schedule repairs.

Caldwell Collision is one of the few Mercedes-Benz ELITE Certified Collision Centers in the US. This highly specialized certification is known as the “pinnacle of collision service for Mercedes-Benz vehicles”.


The ELITE Certification designates that we have completed extensive training specific to structural aluminum repairs at the Mercedes-Benz Collision Program training center, we have a separate clean room strictly used for structural aluminum repairs, the necessary aluminum specific tools and equipment, and the experience/expertise needed to perform these often intricate repairs. Caldwell Collision is the ELITE Certified facility servicing all of NC and SC as well as parts of Virginia, Tennessee, and Georgia.  See our Mercedes-Benz ELITE Certified page under “Certifications” for more information.

Caldwell Collision is now also a Tesla Approved Body Shop. Much like the Mercedes-Benz certification, Tesla requires our technicians undergo weeks of training specific to Tesla vehicles, specific clean room for structural repairs, specialized tools used only for Tesla vehicles, and equipment necessary to safely perform repairs on EV vehicles.


We are the Tesla Approved Body Shop in the Charlotte-Metro area and we also service most of NC from the Research Triangle area down as well as all of South Carolina.  See our Telsa Approved Body Shop page under “Certifications” for more information.

Caldwell Collision is Ford Aluminum Certified. Our experience with aluminum and structural aluminum repairs made us an easy choice when Ford was looking for a shop in this area. We have completed all of the Ford specific aluminum training and have all of the necessary tools/equipment needed to complete any aluminum repairs. With Ford expanding their use of aluminum to the MY2017 Ford F-Series and Super Duty trucks we expect to see a greater volume of Ford trucks in the near future. See our Ford Aluminum Certifications page under “Certifications” for more information.
