Randy, Liz and Caleb Pruitt invite you to stop by their new location in Owasso.
Owasso has a new auto collision repair site with familiar faces behind the counter and in the shop. Pruitt’s Auto Collision is open for business at a brand new location, 8231 N Owasso Expressway, on the east service road just down the street from Classic Chevrolet. Owners Randy and Liz Pruitt are glad to be back in the auto repair business once again. “I am back to doing what I love, it’s great!” said Randy.
Randy and wife Liz (Wilkinson) Pruitt are hometown people through and through. Both have lived in this area their entire lives and both are alumni of Owasso High School. Randy graduated with the Owasso High Class of 1989 and Liz with the OHS Class of 1993. Living and working in the Owasso area was an easy decision, since both love the area and have family nearby. Their son Caleb, 5, is a student at Rejoice Christian School and has his own “office” at the business… just in case dad needs some help.
Auto work comes naturally to Randy; he started learning about vehicle repair from his dad when he was a teenager. In fact, Randy worked for his parents, Bud and Judy Pruitt for 15 years at their former business, Pruitt’s Body Shop.
When Bud and wife Judy decided to retire in 2001, Randy went to work for a local rental car dealer. “I tried the corporate life, saw others getting laid off and just decided that it wasn’t for me,” said Randy. “Liz is pursuing her career as a realtor for Keller-Williams and we decided to venture down this new path at the same time.”
Randy and son Caleb put the finishing touches on a repaired vehicle.
Randy and Liz said they are looking forward to re-establishing relationships with previous clients and friends. The Pruitt name has a proven track record and Randy will continue with the same quality service in a great new location. “We know how stressful it is to be in an accident or have your car damaged in some way. Our goal is for you to drop off the vehicle knowing it will be handled by professionals in a timely manner,” said Randy.
Pruitt is joined by Jeff Williamson, a master technician with over 30 years experience. Services offered include frame work, body work, mechanical work and painting. Both technicians are ASE tested and I-CAR certified and they are happy to provide timely service and free estimates. “Sometimes you just need to talk to someone about your vehicle and see what your options are,” said Randy. “I’m happy to take a look and give a recommendation to anyone who needs it, at no charge. Just come on by the shop and we’ll help you figure out the best way to go about getting your vehicle back in shape.”
Speaking of the shop, its spacious waiting room, offices and garage offer state-of-the-art equipment to get you back on the road and looking good. Pruitt’s can meet your auto repair needs like the big chain repair shops, but with a mom-and-pop atmosphere. Liz pointed out that they are locally owned and operated and their focus is on great customer service which results in repeat customers and good old-fashioned word of mouth referrals.
Pruitt’s Auto Collision is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. so come by and check out the new location.
