About Us


Founded by John Rupert in 1959

“Take care of the customer, the customer will take care of you."


Rupert’s Auto Body and Gem Shop is now under the care of John Rupert’s grandsons, brothers Ted and Tobin Rupert. Both Ted and Tobin see this business as more than job; they view it as a commitment. By staying up to date with the latest technology and equipment Rupert's Auto Body is a fully capable shop able to take on projects from minor dings to extensive repairs. Working on vehicles such as Motorcycles, Cars, Trucks, Jet Skis, Boats, and RV’s.


In addition to providing a solid business within the Carson City community, Rupert's Auto Body takes their commitment even further. They have supported many causes through the years including youth sports, organizations to children's programs, Boy Scout troops, and local schools. They have also taken special pride in providing support to the Washoe Tribe, along with military, fire, and police departments.


"We have been blessed by our employees, who are like family and have stuck with us, working hard every day, and by our customers who have been loyal for generations. I constantly hear stories about fixing the car of someone's father or even grandfather years ago, and each time it makes me recognize that we are an integral part of the community. We really do have both our employees and our customers to thank and we'll be here to stand behind work we've already done or if they have some other type of accident, we're here to help them."
