About Us


How It All Started...

Classic Autoworx was established in 2015, with the primary focus on classic cars and their custom interiors and special builds. We have always been locally owned and operated by the same family, with our location staying centralized in the Des Moines area. In 2016 our business expanded into all custom  interiors from classic to modern cars & trucks, motorcycle seats, boat & pontoon covers, biminis, and full marine interiors including cushions & carpeting. In 2019 we underwent another expansion to our business to include a Used Auto & Motorcycle Dealership. 

 Our reputation for excellence and service has solely been built on "word of mouth" by the many satisfied and loyal customers we've worked with.  We only employ the most innovative designers / trimmers with accredited educational degrees and the proven experience which allows our shop to dominate the custom upholstery industry. We communicate with our suppliers and vendors on a daily basis to make sure we can deliver the best possible pricing to pass on to our customers. Each of our staff members aspire to deliver a superior customer experience by giving individual attention to each customer so they get exactly what they want and need to achieve the desired outcome, no matter how simple or complex that request might be. We pride ourselves in the top-quality of work we achieve on each and every project. Our trimmers have had their work featured in multiple magazine spreads and centerfolds. (via the customer entering their car, truck, or motorcycle in an auto show and winning a category)

In January of 2019 we obtained a  Dealer's License and we opened the dealership side of the business, priding ourselves in the quality of the used vehicles and used motorcycles we sell, while committed to providing each customer with an unparalleled customer experience. Our selective inventory is  geared more towards 4-wheel drive vehicles and Harley-Davidson motorcycles, but we do have other makes and models of cars, trucks, and bikes in our currently changing inventory. Our knowledgeable staff make the process of buying a used vehicle or motorcycle simple and easy so we can get you on your way quickly and effortlessly, unlike the bigger dealerships, you get that "small town" and individual attention that each customer deserves.

In February 2020 we partnered with one of our trusted company and started a professional Interior & Exterior Detailing division. Continuing to deliver high quality professional service at a cost you can live with. 

We believe that building a lucrative business is based, almost solely, on customers opinions, which is the direct result of following 4 key principles:

        1.  Be honest and straightforward with each interaction you have, whether it's with a customer, supplier, or vendor. Integrity is everything!

        2. Always try to "do right" by the customer. Go above and beyond their expectations.

         3. Strive to be the best in the industry with continuing education and the willingness to experiment with new ideas in order to stay current with growing trends. 

         4. Communication with all involved in the project is the key to successful outcomes......without it, there is always room for mistakes and disappointments.
