1960’s – A dynasty is born

Newlyweds Richard and Judith Nathan began
the swinging 60’s by setting up shop in Auburn.
With a baby in tow this was no easy feat but this
small panel shop was only the beginning.

1970’s – A prestige reputation for prestige vehicles

The Nathan’s relocated to Seven Hills, taking over Western Motor Body
Repair Specialists and soon developed a reputation for their specialized and
quality workmanship on prestige motor vehicles. Richard the car enthusiast
became passionate about researching diverse makes and models of vehicles,
travelling the globe for inside knowledge.

1980’s – “Take your car to the repairer’s in the bush.”

Moving on from Seven Hills in search of the quiet life, the Nathan’s set up a small shop in
the leafy surrounds of Annangrove. The family business operated at this site for 18 years,
further developing their reputation for quality workmanship and exceptional service.
As the preferred repairer for insurers, dealerships and corporation’s word got around
to “only take your car to the repairer’s in the bush.”

2000 – The dynasty grows

With a reputation this good and over 50 staff, it was time to expand.
A world class repair facility was built at Rouse Hill with specialists to
carry out repairs and paint work to cars, trucks, machinery,
helicopters and other aviation components.

2008 – Keeping it in the family

Richard’s son Grant and wife Lesley took over the reins, focusing
on the expanding truck and commercial division. Relocating to
larger premises in the Hawkesbury region with custom designed
factories operating to worlds best standards, it is now one of the
largest repair facilities its type in our country.

Today – Still a family business

With at least five of our staff family members, Grant and Lesley strive to maintain
this family culture throughout the business. Many of our loyal staff have been working
with us since the 1970’s, their expertise and wealth of knowledge contributing to our
world class reputation within the industry. Nathans Smash Repairs continues to operate
with the same family principals of quality workmanship and exceptional customer service.

Environmental sustainability

Nathans Truck and Trailer Smash Repairs is committed to environmental sustainability and is a carbon neutral company. We are accredited with Green Stamp Plus and EcoSmash. We aim to minimise the operational impact of every element of our business, particularly with regard to waste disposal, solvent emissions and the use of recycled products. We are proud to say that we not only comply with all legislative requirements, but our facility has been specifically designed to exceed set benchmarks for the industry.

Nathans Truck and Trailer Smash Repairs believes that climate change and severe weather events are significant risks to our industry and the communities in which we operate. We believe that we have a responsibility to care for and protect the environment.

Green Stamp Plus was developed with initial funding by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.
It’s a nationwide program that consists of Accreditation of businesses that not only comply with the law, but have gone above and beyond compliance to work in a way that is environmentally friendly.
The program is intended to raise awareness of environmental issues, obligations and encourage the adoption of innovative and eco-efficient activities. It was developed to encourage the automotive industry to be aware of the environmental impacts and risks associated with the running of their business and to ensure compliance and adopt where possible innovative and eco-efficient business practices.
The EcoSmash Program was launched nationally at Nathans Truck and Trailer Smash Repairs in September 2010. The program was developed in conjunction with the NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water to provide information for smash repairers at all levels of environmental planning, from basic compliance requirements through to advanced strategies to actively improve environmental performance.
EcoSmash is endorsed by the Motor Traders’ Association of NSW.

Our Partners

Car manufacturers, dealers and insurers will understandably only recommend a repairer that meets or exceeds their compliance standards. Recommended repairers are subjected to a rigorous selection process which takes into consideration the repairer’s reputation in the industry, their customer satisfaction ratings, and an inspection of their premises and equipment. Once approved, these repairers are granted access to technical information and detailed approved repair methods.

Preferred Insurers

Nathan’s believes that your choice of insurer is equally as important as your choice of repairer. The Body Repair Division of the Motor Traders Association (MTA) has compiled a list of Preferred Insurers who are recognised as leaders in the industry for offering superior customer service, a lifetime warranty on authorised repair work, and hold Choice of Repairer Policies in line with the MVIRI Code of Conduct.
