Chetwynd Auto Body, now known as CSN Chetwynd, was acquired by Lift Auto Group on Feb. 1, 2022, and has since become a part of the CSN Collision Centres Network.

“The sale to Lift Auto Group is a win-win for our community,” former Chetwynd Auto Body co-owner Sheree Rodenbush says.

“Our six employees keep their jobs, our town keeps its shop, and we can continue to serve the region. It’s a win for everybody.”

Sheree and her husband, Martin, purchased the shop in April 1994 and have been working tirelessly since then, ensuring their customers drive away with peace of mind.

“I was in the industry prior to buying the business. I had a home shop, and I’ll be returning to the hobby shop again. I got into the industry because I liked cars, and I made a living off it for a long time,” Martin says. “We decided to slow life down, and the only way to do so was to sell the business.”

When pursuing buyers, Sheree and Martin’s priority was to sell Chetwynd Auto Body as a turn-key business.

They owned the business and the building that it is housed in and could have shut the shop’s doors and just sold the real estate. But their preference was to ensure that the shop would continue to be available to serve the community.

“We really wanted to see the business carry on. We had good employees who had been here for such a long time,” Sheree says. “We’ve heard good things about Lift Auto Group, and I’m confident they’ll do good things for our town, employees and customers. It’s in good hands.”

Martin will continue working with cars, fixing hot rods in his home shop.

“I’m pretty happy with it all,” he says.

The CSN Collision Centres Network exists to assist independent collision repair facilities to enhance operations through performance assessments, ongoing training, and marketing initiatives. 

Chetwynd residents will now have the advantage of accessing familiar services from well-known local staff with the expanded resources that come from being members of a larger collective.

“There is so much support,” new location manager Nicole Bratt says. “Lift supports our location in all areas of the business, from marketing to parts, to day-to-day operations.”

CSN Chetwynd prides itself on providing the highest level of customer service and treating your vehicle as if it’s one of their own. 

CSN Chetwynd’s repair facility will return your vehicle to its pre-accident condition, guaranteed. Staff are fully trained and licensed auto body repair experts who use state-of-the-art technology to restore your vehicle so that you can safely get back on the road.

Getting into a car accident can be a scary and stressful experience. CSN Chetwynd works closely with ICBC to ensure all your needs are taken care of so you can confidently get back behind the wheel of your vehicle.

“We take care of everything. We also have courtesy cars and a courtesy truck for use while you’re getting your repairs done,” Bratt says.
