H&V Facts


See why H&V Collision Center is your top choice for collision repair.

Dodging potholes? Fender bending in traffic? Slipping on ice? We know these roads. We understand.

Not only is H&V Collision Center a trustworthy provider of collision repair service – it’s also one of the oldest independently-owned collision repair facilities in the Capital Region. This is our home and these are the roads we drive on, in good weather and in bad, during rush hour and on quiet afternoons.

H&V Collision Center was founded in 1973 by Vartan Jerian, Sr. Our original 1,500-square-foot building on Oakwood Avenue in Troy was the place where our reputation for reliability and quality first began, and it remains our home today – though it has expanded by more than 10,000 feet, and it no longer has just two employees.

In the 1990s, Vartan Sr.’s three sons, Vartan Jr., James and John, joined the operation, sparking a period of growth for H&V Collision Center. Our Troy location grew significantly, expanding our workspaces and growing our team. Our second location opened in Queensbury in 2008, and a third opened on Central Avenue in Colonie in 2010. Our fourth location, on Route 50 in Saratoga, opened in 2012. Our fifth location opened on State street in Schenectady in 2015, closely followed by our sixth location in Clifton Park on  Clifton Park Center Road. Our seventh and most recent location opened on Ulster Ave in Kingston  in 2016.

Throughout the years, H&V Collision Center has not been shy in making major investments in state-of-the art equipment used by leading automotive manufacturers such as Porsche, BMW and Mercedes. We’ve established solid working relationships with all major insurance companies, a reputation for environmentally-safe paints and processes and a customer satisfaction rating of 98%. With decades of experience providing quality results, H&V Collision Center has become recognized as a leader in the collision repair industry.

More than 40 years later, we remain committed to building a relationship with each customer, one job at a time, through prompt and excellent work.
