Criswell Collision Center is an independently-owned-and-operated facility. It is purpose-built and by design, maximizes efficiency and work flow. For this reason we can usually complete most repairs faster than other body shops, without sacrificing quality or service.

Our front office staff has many years of experience dealing with insurance claims handling, our technicians are hand-picked craftsmen and we back all of our repairs with a limited lifetime guarantee. We are conveniently located at 181 Defense Highway, one block east of the State Vehicle Emissions Test Station in Annapolis, Maryland.

Our highly-qualified personnel are always willing to answer any questions about the repair process and help you deal with the insurance companies. Hertz has an office on-site if alternative transportation is needed.

In addition to the above, we can also provide towing when necessary.


Our goal at Criswell Collision Center is to return your vehicle to you restored to pre-collision condition or better and provide our customers with timely, affordable, effective service in a friendly, professional environment. It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive both the best service and the best value for that service. We will make sure any questions about repairs or insurance are answered, and that our clients drive home with peace of mind and satisfaction.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Thank you and Criswell for the fantastic repair done on my car. I was so impressed with your state-of-the -art facility and had to compare the scene of my car in the paint booth with that of a sterile operating room. Everything done was with particular pride in getting the customer's car like it was when purchased new. I will highly recommend your facility to anyone that I know who needs auto repair. Please congratulate the staff artists for a job-well-done.

Always use a detergent designed specifically for car washing. Don't use common dish washing detergent which is too strong and will remove the wax.

Always keep a good coat of wax or paint sealant on your car.

Make a habit of detailing your car. Detail your car regularly and inspect the finish.

Always use a good wax with a high Carnauba content.

You are much better off to wax your car more frequently than to try to apply a heavy coat of wax.

If you are involved in an accident don't make any public statements about who is at fault.

Keep a disposable camera with a flash in your glove box in the event you have an accident. Then take LOTS of pictures!

Be sure to remove sand and salt spray as soon as possible from your car to protect your car's finish.

Check tire inflation at least once a month. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency.

A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.

For maximum fuel economy, stay below 60 mph.

Don't forget to check the tire pressure of your spare tire!

Buying a fuel with a higher octane than your car requires will not boost performance.

Unlike A/C in the summer, you can run the car's heater as much as you want in the winter without effecting gas mileage.
