A direct repair facility is a body shop that works directly with your insurance company as a preferred shop. Body shops earn the right to be in preferred shop programs by meeting certain requirements. These include having certified technicians, using the proper equipment, and most importantly, having a record of satisfied customers. For your convenience, when you use a preferred shop, the repair process is streamlined. You don’t have to be hassled with getting estimates. A preferred shop actually writes the estimate, orders the parts, and repairs your vehicle without having to wait for an insurance adjuster. Insurance companies constantly monitor their preferred shops to ensure quality repair.
Claim numbers are issued by your insurance company at the time you report your accident. Write your claim number down and bring it in with you when you come in to begin the repair process, we will handle the insurance negotiations for you.

Here is what our happy customers had to say about our services:

This shop is absolutely awesome. Their customer service and the extremely professional environment is amazing. They do awesome work and they got me back in my vehicle in no time!  I hope that I will never need body work done again but if I do I know where to have it done….

Joan Grazzini

After a recent hail storm, I was searching for a shop to fix my Infiniti G37; every body panel was dented, and the moon roof was shattered.  I came across this shop in Google maps, and started reading reviews.  I was impressed, and didn’t bother researching any other shops.  I can’t recommend Rich, and his team enough. They are very professional, do excellent work, and I would definitely bring any needed auto body work to them.

Chadd Easterday

This shop beats the competition in price, customer service, communication, quality of work and timeliness!! Highly recommend!! Rich runs a top notch business!!

Aimee Pope

This is absolutely the best body shop around!  If you are looking for excellent communication, quality of work that is second to none, and pricing that is very competitive look no further.  If you are looking for your repairs to be done perfectly and on time Rich and the crew will not disappoint.  Five stars does not do them justice!

William Sacco

Beyond satisfied with the work, customer service, and price!  I am definitely a happy customer 😀

Vy Nguyen

Rich (owner) is awesome!  My Jaguar XF was beat up in a hail storm and now it looks brand new!!!  I selected this shop over the big guys because I wanted someone that would pay attention to detail.  I definitely don’t regret my decision!  I would highly recommend doing business here.

Rick Molder

I have taken 2 BMW cars here for minor bumper damage to get it repainted.  I have also taken my Jeep to get bumper upgraded.  They are very professional, local owners.  Very impressed with their work. excellent service.  I would definitely recommend going there for your car needs.  I am going to be visiting there every time I need something upgraded on my car.

Parth Patel

Brought in my Audi A4 to Rich, and he and his team exceeded my expectations on price AND quality.  My car looks and drives like brand new, and it was significantly less expensive than the first place I got a quote from.  Rich kept me up to date on the repair, the experience was excellent all around.  I highly recommend them!

Greg Sanders

Rich and Ben are the best.  My 2017 Honda Ridgeline was rear ended several months back and theses guys took great care of me.  They were quick and ensured that I only was provided with genuine Honda parts.  It’s good when have “A guy” that you will always use in the future.  These are my guys.

Scott Harrod

An awesome body shop!  They did great work very quickly.  Everyone was extremely friendly as well.  They even gave me a ride back to my place after dropping off my car.  I highly recommend using them.  They definitely earned my future business.
