Our Story

our story photo

We are a full-service, family-owned-and-operated collision repair shop providing premium automotive repair services to our community. MiCar Collision Center has been built on a foundation of trust, care, safety and quality for more than 23 years.

In 1997, Mike and Carolyn Maddox opened MiCar with the vision of creating a customer-oriented, family friendly body shop based on providing quality repairs at affordable prices. Carolyn came up with the name MiCar – a creative play on words fusing the husband-wife duo’s first names together.

Mike is an Air Force veteran and auto aficionado; His civilian career began in electronics but his passion for automotive custom painting and fabrication led him to build a reputation as a restoration specialist. As his automotive passions grew so did the business. MiCar has become a full-service collision repair facility with state-of-the-art equipment and the capability to work on all vehicle makes and models.

In 2014, their son Danny Melchers joined the MiCar team full-time. Danny worked in the shop through the years while in high school and college. The combination of his MBA from William and Mary and his experience working as a mechanical engineer in manufacturing has helped MiCar improve productivity and workflow efficiency. MiCar is among the most efficient repair facilities in Hampton Roads, consistently scoring top-tier performance on repair cycle time.

Family is the heart of our operation and those who instill their trust in us will receive unwavering craftmanship and dedication from our team. We are here to restore your vehicle to like-new condition and get you back on the road quickly and safely.
