About Us

European Collision Center was opened in 2008 by Ludwik Rutkowski and Dennis Kirkpatrick. For 17 years, they worked in the BMW Certified Collision Program. Their time in the program showed them the value of factory certification programs. They discovered these programs truly set the standard for repair procedures and equipment. Manufacturer training and guidance is far superior than training without direct factory sponsorship. 

We began as a small team of devoted professionals. We shared the same obsession of restoring vehicles back to their pre-accident condition. Our team attended extensive training to become Mercedes-Benz Factory Certified. Since then, we have also achieved Porsche, Audi, Tesla, and Sprinter certifications. We also maintain our BMW training and certification standards. These exacting standards are applied to every vehicle we repair.

We adhere to factory repair procedures on every make and model we service. We also pride ourselves on being environmentally conscious. We ensure all materials and products are eco-friendly and disposed of properly. 

ECC is a full-service collision and body repair facility in San Francisco. We have two convenient locations in the SOMA/Mission District and Bernal Heights/Dog Patch/Bayview areas. We can repair small dings, chips, and scratches as well as major collision damage. Our technicians are manufacturer trained and utilize the latest technology in collision repair.

We Are Here To Help

As you know the City and County of San Francisco as well as surrounding counties have requested all non-essential business to close for three weeks. Auto repair is seen as essential. We need to be here to get you back in your cars and to attend to vehicles that may be damaged during this period. Now more than ever we need our automobiles when public transit may not be the safest option to get us to our doctors, grocery stores, pharmacies and for those that are still working, to your jobs.

European Collision Center will remain open.

Please know that European Collision Center is taking every precaution for our employees and clients. We have increased our cleaning staff and on the hour disinfect all public area, offices, restrooms and lunch rooms. Employees have been issued gloves and masks and personnel disinfectant, lunches are now staggered so that our lunch room, built for 24 people only accommodates 6 at any time. All employees are monitored for any health issues and are sent home at the slightest sign of illness.

After every vehicle is repaired, cleaned and detailed then the entire interior is wiped clean with disinfectant wipes and a final wipe down is done as the vehicle is parked prior to the owners pick up.

This is a trying time but one we are all in together and together is the only way we will get though it. If you have any needs that we may be able to help with please do not hesitate to ask.

Ludwik Rutkowski & Dennis Kirkpatrick, and the entire ECC Team.
