Before and After Gallery

“They not only did an expedient and professional job on the crushed rear of the car, they matched the paint to perfection and even detailed off the dings and knicks from non-related injuries to the car without my even asking. Tom was extremely tolerant of all my questions and concerns and was even willing to deal directly with the insurance company instead of demaning $ upfront from me. It's hard to find good quality car repair, matched with honesty and great customer service. I've found that here.”
