I recently had someone hit my bumper and it needed to be replaced. Another body shop quoted me a very high price. I stumbled across Jaider’s shop while I was driving home and decided to stop in. It was almost 4x less expensive, and he delivered quality work! The color matching he did was incredible, and the work looked better than it did off the line. Not only will you get great prices, and quality work, you will also get Jaider who is personable and makes each interaction enjoyable.
