At Colorworks, we have been a well kept secret at car dealers for over 20 years. So, by being hidden behind the scenes and preparing dealer’s vehicles for resale, many of our private, or retail customers are learning the scope of our abilities. I am happy to explain to all our customers all of the levels of services we provide.
If you require a repair to an unsightly bumper scrape, then our mobile service is likely the best option for you. My self, or my team of highly skilled, mobile technicians can come to your home or work, and repair your bumper or fender scrape, right there in your driveway. Many of our customers do not want to go through their insurance for a minor scrape that they caused themselves, so I offer an affordable and very convenient mobile repair service that is often less than their deductible. If the customer has any uncertainty about what their options might be, I am available for a free estimate.
“What happens if the damage is larger than I can repair at their home”? Sometimes the damage is quite large, and if we can meet the customer’s expectations, then we will proceed with our mobile repair. However, I have a fully accredited, ICBC Express repair center in partnership with Colorworks, so no job is ever too big for me to repair. At Vickery Collision, we can fix all your vehicles bumps and bruises, and look after your insurance claims and bring your vehicle back to pre-accident condition with a lifetime guarantee. At Vickery Collision, we offer our unique valet service for convenient pickup and delivery of your vehicle.
At Colorworks, I offer the best of both worlds. I can come to you and repair your minor scuffs and scrapes, right on sight, or I am happy to offer our full collision services at Vickery Collision. At Colorworks, I am just a phone call away to receive your questions and offer you the best possible answers.
On May 2nd, two students, Taylor Scholz and Colorworks founder, Don Konantz’s son, Willy Konantz started their grueling 4,500 km bike trek from London, Ontario to Vancouver, British Columbia to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. All the money raised is going directly to the Vancouver Prostate Centre.
Here are video highlights of their incredible journey. Please watch the video then donate to this great cause.

On November 2nd, 2011, Colorworks Express Autobody Centres founder Don Konantz spoke at the Terry Fox Foundation announcement that they are donating 12.7 million dollars for cancer research. By his own admission, Don is living proof the cancer research matters. Don was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February 2011. On that day, Don was undergoing his twelfth day of radiation treatment for lymphoma cancer that developed when his prostate cancer metastasized. Don and his family have always taken part in the Terry Fox Run to raise funds for cancer research.
“We will find a cure,” he said. “My children and your children will live in a cancer-free world.
“We will find the finish line in the Marathon of Hope,”
The biggest chunk of the money goes to a team led by Dr. Martin Gleave of the Vancouver Prostate Centre. The group will get just over $6 million over five years to study stopping the progression of advanced prostate cancer. Ontario and Quebec researchers will get the remainder of the funding.
Dr. Sean Egan of the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Toronto will lead a team getting $2.8 million over three years to find the Achilles heel for primary and metastatic tumours of the breast and brain. Another $3.8 million over three years will go to a team led by Dr. Michel Tremblay of the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre and McGill University in Montreal.
Their research will focus on how cancer cells metabolize in order to lead to targeted therapies.
