When you work at a body shop the first thing on your mind is how to repair the damages on a vehicle and not taking the vehicle on a photoshoot for before pictures.  Taking a before picture is the last thing on my mind.  And sometimes I managed to remember to take after pictures like these below or sometimes I only take before pictures.  On this blog we have two Bentleys, the top one had to get the front bumper fixed, headlight, and left fender.  The repair was straightforward, body work, take down repair, and left fender repair.  The second Bentley on the bottom had dent repair work done, bondo was applied, then sanding, primer, paint, and clear coat.  Clients were both happy and ultimately that is what matters to me, not taking pictures.  But now I try to remember to take before and after pics.








“This is hands down the best place to take your car. Jader has the best customer service I have ever experienced at an auto shop, very very helpful and he explains everything he’s doing which is very comforting and always finds the best price for parts. My car door was jammed shut for a very long time and everywhere else I took my car no one had any idea how to even go about it to fix the door. I was told by several people that I would have to replace the whole door which was way out of my price range. Jader on the other had didn’t hesitate at all he didn’t need to replace the door and he fixed the impossible in two days. I appreciate all his hard work and dedication he had towards fixing my car for me. I will not be taking my car anywhere else.”

Ourestimates are always free and you are welcome to come by our shop anytime or make an appointment.  We know that many clients like the convenience of sending pictures of their car and request an estimate; but, in reality an estimate by this means is not really reliable.  Why?  Because the estimate will either be too high or too low.  In order to assess the damage and give an estimate, a car needs to be seen by a professional and in person.  This insures that the estimate is as accurate as possible, not too high or too low.  For more information click here.

If you are not able to come by our shop during normal working hours, you can give us a call or send us an email, and make an appointment when you can come, in most cases we are able to accommodate our clients.
