About Us

We Are Family

Tripp’s Collision opened its doors for the very first time in 1988, with Phil and Barb Tripp at the helm of this family business. What started as a small venture turned into the leading auto body shop in Lansing, MI, providing safe, exceptional repairs to our Michigan customers.

We’re well into our fourth decade of growing our business. In that time, we have not only managed to scale our body shop operations, but even more importantly, we have grown our community and our family.

The journey began with Phil’s school years in Vandercook Lake, where his part-time high-school job evolved into a career in business.

Phil and Barb are parents to six sons and grandparents to 19 grandkids, and the second generation of the Tripp family works alongside Phil and Barb, supporting and growing the business together. Today, Tripp’s Collision Center is a multi-million dollar, award-winning body shop employing 32 people and doing their best to build a safer community for their family, friends, and loyal customers.
