Business Spotlight: B.A.’s Automotive Service

B.A.’s Automotive Service has been serving our community for 50 years. Tony started fixing and servicing cars when he was 12 years old and today, he proudly owns and operates the same auto repair shop his father founded 50 years ago.

Tony’ father was the first auto body repair instructor at WKCTC. He purchased a farm while he was teaching and practiced his trade at home. Working on cars was a family affair as Tony’s father and uncles all were in the auto body and auto repair business across the U.S. When his uncles decided they were ready to move home to Paducah, his father went into business with his uncles and B.A.’s Auto Repair Serviced was founded.

The long-standing auto repair shop is a full-service auto body shop and offers services including collision repair, refinishing jobs and 24/7 towing services. Tony is dedicated to ensuring his customers receive the best service possible and goes the extra mile to make sure that happens.

“I was on my way to work and hit a curb. My tire was completely blown! Immediately, I called Thee quickly answered and sent two of his employees for financing and lately two person came to tow my car. By 9 a.m., I was back on the road to work and by 3 p.m. the same day, I had a new tire! Something that would have totally ruined my day ended up being a fixable and simple mistake thanks to Tony. He is great!” says Sara Jane Hedges, a customer of B.A.’s Auto Repair Service.

In addition to being a long-time business owner in Paducah, Tony gives back to the community by coaching the Paducah Middle School boy’s basketball team and finding ways to give back to inner city kids who need a positive influence in their lives. He is a dedicated supporter of the Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club of Paducah and serves as a board member. He is also a member of business networking organizations including Rotary and BNI.

“I love this community. I love everything about Paducah. It’s a great place to live and raise a family,” says Tony Hamilton.
