New business spotlight on Apple Hill Auto and Collision

Apple Hill Auto and Collision LLC is known for its vehicle repair and collision service work.

In August, it upgraded its collision services with the opening of a new facility right next to its automotive repair center in the Grey Fox Plaza just off Lycoming Mall Drive a few miles east of Montoursville.

With state-of-the art equipment and quicker turn-around times the new collision center gives the ability to better service collision customers, explained general manager Dan McGowan.

“Everything is new and upgraded,” he said.

Custom work, insurance work and frame straightening are some of the services offered at the new facility

“Whatever someone needs, repairs or painting, we do it,” said McGowan. “We do cars, trucks, motorcycles.”

Apple Hill has offered collision work for six years at various locations.

Now, with the collision center right next door to the automotive center, all services are under one roof, he noted.

That’s good news, McGowan said, for customers who need both automotive and collision repairs.

It’s also made it simpler for automotive customers to find the collision center.

The Grey Fox Plaza, McGowan noted, is a good location for the facility, where other businesses have sprouted up in recent years.

The collision center employs two people inside the 56-foot-by-80-foot facility which took about three months to construct.

“It wasn’t supposed to happen until next year,” he said. “But we moved it along.”

He expects the collision center to grow in coming years.

“A lot of the time with collision work, there are standard repairs to do,” he said.

But McGowan also noted that no job is too small.

The business sublets out no work.

Apple Hill is a family owned business started by Aaron Salvatori in 1996.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
