I cannot recommend this body shop enough. We had a lot of work that needed to be done on the car and it was completed much quicker than I anticipated. Brad kept me informed on the progress of the repairs throughout the whole process and I'm very pleased with the work carried out.They also cleaned the car both on the outside and the interior which was a nice touch and left us with a sample of our paint for future reference. Thanks for all your hard work!
