Pepper's Auto Body & More
I called for a quote to get ball joints pressed; everyone else i called said I would be charged the regular hourly rate of work performed. Jeff at Pepper's quoted me a flat rate. Even though the job didn't take that long (the hourly rate would have been cheaper), Jeff understood I was in a time crunch and worked with me, getting it done in less than 15 minutes. One of the parts I had was wrong, he told me why and said I should come by and take a look. I brought him back a new ball joint within the hour, he stopped what he was doing and pressed it on the spot. While it may have been "cheaper" to go somewhere else, I definitely got what I paid for: an auto shop that CARES about their customers. I am posting this on every site that accepts reviews; you can't beat the quality of the people at Pepper's!

Joe's Auto Repair
I would recommend Joes Auto to anyone, he is very honest and very reliable he makes sure he gets the job done perfectly. He was one of the only people that my boyfriend and I spoke to about my car that went into detail about what the problem may be and he made sure he told me he would find the problem for sure and he knew a lot about the type of engine I had. He has very good prices and saved me a bunch of money, when I got my car back it looked the exact same way it did when I brought it to him and have not had a problem with it since! Joe will definitely be my new mechanic from now on this guy knows exactly what he is doing.

Chaleks Auto Body
Great honest service at a reasonable price. He goes above and beyond to meet the needs of the customer and took great care of my vehicle. When I left something in my vehicle and contacted him after hours, without hesitation, he offered to meet me at the shop so I could get it. Would highly recommend his service and would return.

Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
