Battman Collision Repair has been doing business at 702 East Pecan Street in Sand Springs since 2005.
Owned and operated by native Sandite Mark Battenfield, the shop has built a reputation of small town values and dependable service for more than a decade. With nothing but five-star ratings on both Google and Facebook, Battman is the best-reviewed auto shop in Sand Springs.
The Sand Springs auto shop offers top-of-the-line services including dent repair, body repair, painting, bumper repair, damage appraisals, glass replacement, pin stripes, insurance claims, and full restoration. The shop doesn't perform routine maintenance, choosing to focus their expertise on collision-related repairs.
Battenfield was introduced to the automotive lifestyle by his father, and he spent much of his younger days restoring Ford Model-As and Jeeps. After working for sixteen years at the box factory in Sand Springs, he decided to go to work doing custom paint jobs. Over time, his friends would come to him for help with car repairs and he learned there was a lot more money to be made in accident repair than paint work.
The shop has been at its current location since its inception, but initially only occupied a small portion of the building. As time passed, the community has been good to Battman and they were able to expand and take over the full building.
A frequent sponsor of free community events like the Harper's Hut Classic Car Show and the Harper's Hut Day of Giving, you can often see Battenfield's retired Creek County Sheriff's cruiser drawing crowds wherever he takes it.
The police cruiser isn't the only popular icon Battman is known for. The shop was the "home" of a well-known stray dog named Daisy for years. Battenfield says Daisy roamed the area along Charles Page Boulevard for more than half a decade before being struck by a vehicle on the Keystone Expressway. Battenfield, a dog-lover, put a house out for Daisy and she would often sleep at the shop. In her seven years of sleeping there, she never once allowed Battenfield or an employee to pet her.
Customers of Battman will want to make sure they check out Battenfield's office, as it could easily pass as a museum of classic auto culture. Collectible models and other vintage accessories will entertain any child and make a grown man feel like a child again.
Battman is just one example of the small-town businesses that make Sand Springs such a unique and fun place to live and work.
