As you are aware, I sustained just under $10,000.00 worth of damages. You and you staff did an exemplary job on restoring it to the same original manufacturer specifications such that it is virtually impossible to tell that the accident even occurred.
Thank you for the excellent work you have done on my Subaru. This is the third time I have used your shop and could not be more pleased with the workmanship.
We would like to thank you for the great job you did returning our Jeep back to perfect condition, it looks brand new again.
Your collision repair work was way above our expectations. I would like to personally commend your staff on another outstanding repair.
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you did on my car last week. I have never had such a positive experience and you can be sure I will recommend you to everyone I know.
Thanks for doing a great job and going out of your way for me. We need more business people like you guys – honest and efficient.

How to care for freshly painted car
1) Especially during the first sixty to ninety days after a new paint job, you should never use commercial car washes and waxes on your car. Most people will take their cars to an automatic or more professional car wash such as a drive-thru car wash. Utilizing these car washes can damage finish if done so during these first sixty to ninety crucial days. It is recommended (even after the sixty to ninety days is up) you should hand wash your car to keep its finish looking perfect.
2) Setting objects on top of a car that has been freshly painted is a big out. Sitting even the smallest objects (something as round and small as the bottom of a drinking glass) can create small scratches on your vehicle’s paint job and these scratches can be made even if you remove the object as slightly as you can. It is recommended that you never set anything (big or small) on top of your car’s paint job even after the paint job has extended beyond the critical stage.
3) If you have just had a fresh paint job, you should keep your car in your garage when not being driven. Things such as bird droppings, tree sap and night dew contain acids that can damage your finish. It is recommended that you keep your car in the garage at least 3 to 4 weeks after your paint job. Also, if contact has occurred you should wash with soap and water immediately.
