Alder Street Auto Body is the only accredited ICBC auto body shop in Summerland that was founded in 1991 by Martin and Linda Van Alphen. Their oldest son, Kelsey, having “grown up in the shop” and been in the auto trade much of his life, became a red seal Auto Collision Repair Technician in 1999.

Kelsey and his wife, Katrina, purchased the family business from his parents in late 2005. In 2010 they undertook a renovation that expanded the shop by 1700 square feet, added a new spray booth, lunch room and wash bay. Currently they employ nine full time staff.

In 2010, Alder Street won the Business Excellence award at the Summerland business & community excellence awards. In 2011 and 2013, Alder Street won the AutocheX Premier Achiever award for customer service through ICBC, which put them in the top 5% in the province for service. In 2011/14/15 Okanagan Life readers voted them the best auto body repair in the South Okanagan.

Kelsey and Katrina donate regularly to the local Summerland Steam, Food bank and local charities. Kelsey currently serves as a director and treasurer of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce; and previously has spent 10 years as a member of the Summerland Kinsmen. Kelsey and Katrina have three young children and truly love living in the beautiful community of Summerland.

I just had my scuffed up front bumper cleaned up and painted. Absolutely a perfect job. Communication with Jason was exemplary. Wreck your vehicle and go there, you'll be glad that you did.

As a detailer of many years in the Okanagan who currently runs a large detail shop I see work from different body shops on almost a daily basis. Most is sub-standard in my opinion. It's a part of my job to identify defects in paint, overspray etc etc... Alder street in my opinion is the only place I would take any vehicle of mine. There's clearly an abundance of pride and

I had a little problem with a body repair that was done in 2020 and I brought it back; they fixed it as soon as possible. They provided a beautiful loaner car while my car was in the shop and were always professional and straight forward about what they were doing. I highly recommend Alder Street Autobody!

Got my truck window replacement done for less than my deductible. What more could a guy ask for?
