Body shops repair, renovate and enhance automobile frames and chassis. Frequently, they also paint vehicles. Because of the many chemicals and solvents used in this work, some states and counties require body shops to hold HAZMAT permits.

Situated where the mouth of the Cuyahoga River lets out into Lake Erie, Cleveland has long been an economically important city. Since the Industrial Revolution, captains of industry learned to use the city's access to the Great Lakes as a transit path to exchange important goods. That's why steel and heavy manufacturing have been important industries to Cleveland and Ohio in general for almost two centuries. Today's Cleveland also boasts high tech companies and a large, advanced healthcare sector.
Because Ohio does much of the licensing and permitting, Cleveland has less red tape than many cities. The industrial town is very welcoming of entrepreneurs and makes the process of setting-up shop as simple and straightforward as possible.
