Auto Body - Collision Center in Shepherdsville, KY | Dents Dings & Colors

Get to Know Shepherdsville’s Auto Damage Disappearing Act

Joe and Linda Hutchins opened Dents Dings & Colors in 2001 with the goal of providing Shepherdsville area drivers with an honest, convenient, high-quality collision repair shop. Joe had been offering auto body services out of the family’s home since 1990, and the business had simply grown beyond the scale of the Hutchins’ garage. Now with a full-service, state-of-the art facility, Dents Dings & Colors offers complete collision repair services for all types of vehicles.

"I have been doing collision repair all my professional life, but I never tire of helping people turn a bad situation into a good one." -Joe Hutchins, Owner

  • Joe Hutchins
    Joe HutchinsOwner

    Joe Hutchins is the owner of Dents Dings & Colors.  His experience in the automotive industry started back in high school, where he completed Auto body vocational in the 1980s. From 1984 until 1990, Joe worked at UPS.  During his time there, he worked many jobs, mainly in container repair. While at UPS, Joe also ran an auto body shop from his home. In 1990, Joe left UPS and went to work for Toyota Motor Manufacturing in paint and offline repair. At the same time, he continued to run a fulltime body shop from home, and became ASE certified in the automotive industry.

    Over the years, Joe's at-home shop grew bigger and bigger—so big, in fact, he could not handle all the work he was getting. Joe knew he had to make a decision, so in 1999 he left Toyota and began working fulltime at home and part-time doing mobile dealership work. In 2001, Joe opened Dents Dings & Colors at 185 Arnold Drive, and we have been here ever since. Joe takes pride in having the latest technology in his shop, guaranteeing the highest quality of service and integrity available in the collision repair industry.
