About Us

Beginning & Relocation 

        John's Collision has been a family operation from the start as it was founded by Calvin Bedell Sr and John Bedell in 1975.  The original location of John's Collision was on Fair Oak Street in Little Valley, New York for a year, and then moved to Erie Street in 1977.  After a few years of building their business, Calvin and John decided it was time to relocate the business so they would have room for the collision shop to grow.  John's Collision relocated form Erie Street to Rock City Street and held a grand opening on March 16th, 1983.  Employed at the grand opening were Calvin, John, and Robert Bedell.  John and Robert are 2 of Calvin and Norma Bedell's 7 children.  Norma maintained the books for many years.

Fire in 1999 

        In 1999 John's Collision experienced a horrible fire that almost burned down the entire garage.   We were lucky the fire only took 3 rooms of the garage (broiler room, storage room, and the paint room).  Just a few minutes longer and the whole garage would have been burned to the ground.  We are very thankful for the Little Valley Volunteer Fire Department saving our garage and all vehicles inside.  While rebuilding, we redesigned the paint room so it would be better ventilated and more environmentally friendly.

Current 

        Currently, John's Collision is owned by John Bedell.  Please check out our team and see who is helping John continue the successful business that he started with his father over 36 years ago.  John has made many changes after becoming the full owner of John's Collision.  First he added a car wash to the property.  Living in WNY with the long winters and salt eating at the vehicles, John decided a car wash was necessary.  The car wash has been a great success, no matter what season it is.  Next, John added a race room for his children, as the Bedell family is BIG into racing.  At one point all four of John and Joyce Bedell's children (Craig, Melissa, Kyle & Katelyn) raced 4-cylinder Mini Stocks at the local dirt tracks.  No longer do the Bedells race in the Mini Stock division, but now Kyle races an E-Mod and the whole family helps out.  John upgraded the paint system to a PPG water based paint that is more environmentally friendly product and became an emergency service garage for AAA.  In 2012, John's Collision celebrated 35 years of business and continues to do so today!
