Founded in 2003, Bare’s Paint & Bodyworks is locally owned and operated and has become a staple in the Williams Lake community. We are proficient in providing custom auto body paint, refinishing, auto repairs and services to our customers in Cariboo, Cariboo-Chilcotin and North Central Coast. With over 25 years of industry experience under his belt, Barry ‘Bare’ Hanson - our co-founder - decided to follow his passion and strike out on his own with the support of his wife, Carol.
Owners Barry and Carol work as a team, with Carol looking after the front end and Barry taking care of the shop. Barry is a Certified Body Man, Certified Painter, Certified Mechanic and Certified Motor Vehicle Inspector. Barry has more than 30 years of experience and works alongside his team of Red Seal-Certified Painters, Body Men and Preppers.

An interesting incident which we fondly recall is that during this time, Barry was filming a show and met the painter Charlie who was part of the film set. Barry and Carol love to get exposure and knowledge about their fields so they can constantly reinvent and improve their services. This is one of the reasons why they try to never miss a chance to visit the SEMA Show.
