Embarking on adventures is everyone's favorite activity. Unfortunately, accidents can happen, but that's where we come in! We specialize in RV & Camper repairs and can have you back on the road in no time. See examples of our previous RV & Camper work below!

Emergency vehicles are one of the most important vehicles on the road. Ensuring that repairs are carried out correctly and efficiently so the vehicles can return to service is a top priority. Below are some examples of repairs we've done on emergency vehicles!

Due to accidents or collisions, frames may become bent or twisted. The only way to know if your frame requires repair is to have it inspected by professionals. At Hoglund Body & equipment, we utilize a cutting-edge commercial-sized Josam frame rack to facilitate frame repairs. Below are examples of the vehicles our frame rack can accommodate!

Rust occurs due to the oxidation of metal, and a small spot can escalate into a significant issue. We are experienced in the rust repair process, no matter the size, and would be pleased to assist you with yours. Explore examples of our previous rust repair projects below!

Refinishing

Whether you're purchasing used equipment, rebranding, or aiming to refresh your existing fleet, we've got you covered! Check out examples of our past refinishing work below.

Collision Repair Portfolio

Collision repair typically falls into two categories: light-duty collision repair and heavy-duty collision repair. Our estimators assess the damage to determine the appropriate category for each repair. Below we have a mixture of these two categories that we've added to our portfolio.

Welcome to our Portfolio!

We take pride in our repair work and are eager to showcase it! Explore the catergories below to view some of our featured repairs.

Frame Repair

If you're experiencing frame damage after an accident, Hoglund Body & Equipment is the perfect place to bring your vehicle! With our new state-of-the-art, Josam frame rack, we have the capability to repair frames of commercial-sized vehicles and get you back on the road safely.

Damage to the frame of a vehicle usually happens as a result of a collision. The severity of the damage generally depends on the type of accident you were in, where on the vehicle the impact occurred, and the force of the impact. Our trained technicians and estimators have the expertise and tools to identify and make the necessary repairs to ensure your vehicle is repaired to pre-accident condition. 

 

Here's what it looks like when vehicles are hooked up to our frame rack system!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


We installed our Josam frame rack in 2022. After installation, we had an expert come on-site to train our technicians to ensure the best repair possible for our customers.

The process of installing our frame rack was to assemble and weld the frame rail pieces together. We then had to cut and remove the original cement floor in order to install the frame rails. After that, concrete was poured to make the frame rail stationary while also ensuring the frame rails remained level.

Once our frame rack was installed, a trainer from Josam came to our site and trained our technicans on how to properly hook up a vehicle to the machines, how to read the diagnostics, and how to properly ensure the repair is done correctly.

Test Page for Photo Slider

This entry is hidden from site navigation menus. It is a preview of how a photo slider can be added to a page. Just like in the portfolio section of the site, best results are achieved when the before and after images are the same size.

There is content added below the photo slider to illustrate that it can be put within the page content and doesn't need to be at the bottom all the time.

Alignments

Hoglund Body & Equipment utilizes a top-of-the-line Bee Line Alignment System to ensure your alignment is done correctly and efficently.

Our alignment system uses lasers to measure a vehicle's alignment and sends those measurements electronically. Then, our trained technicians read the diagnostic output and get to work making adjustments to correct the issue.

Solar Panels

In 2016, Hoglund Body & Equipment invested in two solar arrays to reduce our impact on the environment. Currently, there is a 19.68kW array and a 39.36kW array producing approximately 9,120kWh of energy monthly.  To view the production of each panel and its positive impact on the environment, please click on the links below.

About/History

Holly, Lisa, and Wayne Hoglund


In 2006, Wayne and Lisa Hoglund and their daughter, Holly Hoglund Klein, opened Hoglund Body and Equipment in Corcoran, Minnesota.  Hoglund Body and Equipment began with 7 staff in a 6,000 square foot facility.  In September, 2010, we moved to Monticello, Minnesota, opening a 33,000 square foot facility and increasing our staff to over 20 employees.  Hoglund Body and Equipment has two 60-foot paint booths and a 75-foot sandblast booth, as well as two shifts for our customers' convenience.

Sandblasting

With the use of our over 60-foot sandblast booth we can renew the look of your equipment, no matter the size! Whether your equipment has undergone wear and tear over the years, or you bought equipment used and you want it to look its best, Hoglund Body & Equipment's experienced technicians will give your equipment new life!

Sandblasting is a technique used to remove paint, rust or other residues from a surface, typically metal. High-pressure air is used to propel a stream of abrasive particles at a target, effectively cleaning the surface of all contaminants. This is often done in preparation of new paint or to smooth the surface of the material.

 

A look inside our sandblast booth:

  

The photo on the left is two containers that were sandblasted to be prepped for painting. The container in the back of the photo was sandblasted and the container in the front was not sandblasted yet.

The photo on the right is a trailer that was sandblasted to remove the rust so it could be painted. From here, the trailer went to the paint booth to be primed and then painted.

Paint and Restoration

Whether you have rust damage, are rebranding used vehicles, or want to spruce up the look of your current vehicle or equipment, Hoglund Body & Equipment can help!

Our facility is equipped with an over 60-foot sandblast booth and two 60-foot paint booths to accommodate any commercial-sized vehicle. This, combined with our Axalta computerized paint-matching technology and our highly trained paint technicians, ensures you get the best quality restoration or paint job.

Rust Removal

Knicks and scratches in your vehicle's paint can leave those spots vulnerable to rust. Leaving rust spots unfixed can cause your vehicle's structural integrity to degrade and weaken, anywhere from your floor panels to your fenders.

The first step in the rust removal process is sandblasting. Sandblasting is used to remove paint, rust, or any other residues from the surface in order for the new paint to adhere correctly. 

Paint prep is the second step in the rust removal process. This step consists of any disessembly and the covering and taping off of the pieces that are not meant to be painted. 

After paint prep, the unit is primed for painting. Priming is done to ensure a high-quality paint adhesion and finish. 

The next step in the rust removal process is painting. This process is completed in one of our oversized paint booths by our expertly trained technicians.

The final step is reassembly. This is when our technicians put the completed pieces back together so you can pick-up your unit!

Complete Paint Job

Whether you bought used equipment that needs rebranding, you want to freshen up your fleet, or your motorhome needs some new paint, Hoglund Body & Equipment can help you accomplish that!

A complete paint job process begins by disassembly of the equipment or vehicle. This is done for mutliple reasons, mainly to ensure each piece gets correctly painted and sealed or so pieces that aren't getting painted stay that way.

After disassembly, the paint prep process begins. This includes sanding, taping, and covering for overspray. Sanding is done to remove any imperfections and old paint so that the new paint coats have a surface to grip onto. Taping and covering for overspray are done to cover the parts that are not getting painted.

Next, depending on the type of paint being used, a primer may be sprayed on. After this, the process of painting begins. This is typically done in sections - the cab, parts, hood, doors, and box. Then, it is left to cure in our paint booth.

After all of the paint has cured, it's time for reassembly. 

Depending on what the vehicle or equipment looks like, the final step in this process may be decals.
