Our family owned and operated repair facility is known for its cleanliness, convenience, and its coffee! Come and relax while we perform quality auto services for your vehicle. We’ll have you in and out in no time, making your auto service experience as quick and affordable as possible. Our higher standard of auto service started with owner Larry Wieland and his passion for cars and their repairs. After his stints with other repair shops, he discovered that there is a lack of integrity in the auto repair industry. This was a major disappointment for Larry as he continued to work and imagine a much better auto repair shop. He knew things could be much better if he were in charge of his own shop.

That vision soon turned into a reality with Ace Body & Motor in Des Moines, IA. Larry had, and still has, a higher standard for quality auto services. When Ace Body & Motor says they treat their customers like family, they mean just that. Larry takes it upon himself to treat every customer as fairly as he would his own mom. We’ve established ourselves as industry leaders by achieving the highest customer satisfaction of anyone in our area. We’re striving to keep it that way! By listening first to all of our customers’ questions and concerns, we make sure they drive away completely satisfied. As a result, they usually tell their friends and family all about us. Cars are becoming more advanced every year and our techs stay abreast of all the latest technologies and equipment. We also continue to receive advanced training and equipment to solve any problem that comes our way. As a Christian business, we treat everyone equally, and support charitable organizations like Joppa Homeless Outreach. We even partner with R. Jones Collision and hold a quarterly “ladies night out” where women can get their questions answered, learn about car maintenance, and have a free dinner and refreshments (even wine!)
