Nearly 20 years ago, a new collision center, ProCare Automotive and Collision, opened its doors in San Antonio. Today, our company experiences growth while maintaining a focus on high quality auto body repair. We are now in cities across central, south, and southeast Texas.
ProCare now offers collision repair in other cities such as Austin, Houston, and Victoria. We chose for our next location to return where it all started.
SW Military Drive Collision Center
ProCare started in 1999 with a location on SE Military Drive in San Antonio. After years of expanding, ProCare opened its 29th location on SW Military Drive down from the original body shop. The goal of the company’s fifth San Antonio location is to make high-quality collision repair more convenient for southwest San Antonio residents.
This new collision center adds about 20 new employees to the more than 550 who work for ProCare. This includes technicians, estimators, customer service staff, and office staff.
High-quality auto body repair
ProCare offers collision repair, auto paint services, and paintless dent repair. Auto technicians train on industry standards in repair from vehicle makers. As a result, our team has the skills to repair any vehicle.
Among the certifications our shops hold is the iCar Gold Class certification. Most noteworthy, the collision repair industry considers iCar Gold Class the highest training achievement. Our technicians train for this every year. Also, we designate skilled experts in four key collision repair roles. Those roles are estimator, non-structural technician, steel structural technician, and refinish technician.

Our goal is to make auto body repair hassle-free so you can get back on the road.
If you take your vehicle to a collision center for repair and the body shop stays busy, it can mean a couple of things. Potentially a sign of a good body shop is that they’re busy. It may also have something to do with a couple of recent surveys where Texas is not ranked in the top 5 for safe drivers. Part of the reason for this is commuting and car accidents.
We all know if you drive some of San Antonio’s busiest roads frequently, especially during rush hour, you increase your risk for an accident. The two surveys give a glimpse at life driving on Texas’ busy roads and why so many are searching on their phones for “collision repair near me.”
Best Driving Records
A recent survey took a look at the number of fatal car accidents for every state and determined the five states with the best driving records. Texas is not listed in the top five and it may have something to do with the population in Texas being greater and the state having more roads than those considered to have the best driving records. The top five states are Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin.
This does not reflect total number of car accidents in states, only those in which someone was killed. A San Antonio collision center, along with law enforcement, can certainly provide a better glimpse of car crashes in specific areas.
Living in a metro area like San Antonio, you probably expect traffic and long commutes. It probably doesn’t surprise anyone that Texas did not make the top 5 for Most Tolerable Commutes. South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming made the top of the list. Texas ranks 16th from the bottom of the list with a mean travel time to work of 25 minutes.
A shorter commute does not necessarily mean you won’t have a car accident. Whether a state has the best driving record or best commute, it’s important to know which San Antonio body shop you choose to repair your vehicle, should you have an accident.
While Texas may not have the best driving record or the best record for low commuting car accidents, it is home to the San Antonio ProCare Automotive and Collision family of body shops. Our certified technicians can help you with all of your auto body repair needs. Give one of our shops that is closest to you a call and schedule a free estimate.
