Peach Auto Painting and Collision
I recently (8/18/15) had Peach Auto paint my tired looking but great running 1995 Dodge Class B RV/VAN. I went with the Majestic paint package that comes with acrylic base with urethane clear. It is crazy thick paint that greatly reduces the risks of runs and hides most flaws, shines as good as a traditional full urethane base coat/ clear coat paint job, for a fraction of the costs, and has a 4 year warranty. Also, you can more safely color/wet sand the paint later, after it cures (6 weeks) for an even more slick finish. This paint is some pretty industrial grade that actually looks great for any older vehicle needing a face lift without breaking the bank. To be completely transparent, I had some minor body work issues that costs a little extra (about $550), and I did not paint the top of the van because it just needed the decals removed and to be high speed buffed to obtain an equally shiny matching top. My bill came in right at $1100.00, which is great compared to the average costs of a base coat /clear coat paint job ($3000.00) for a vehicle this size. As with any paint job, wax every 3 months, more if you wash with strong wax dissolving detergents often and your paint will last for many years. I highly recommend not going with any package less than the Majestic, unless you are immediately selling the vehicle. Reading some of the reviews out there made me leery initially. However, my experience was great. But, in all honesty, I did have to take it back once to correct two small flaws, which was done in one day… perfectly. If you have never worked with paint before, this may seem flawed. However, I know better. Painting can be pretty tricky at times, especially on a tight time and money budget. Word of advice…just be patient, calm, and respectful, and make sure to point out every flaw on your vehicle that you expect to be corrected when writing up the estimate, so you will have no disappointments or misunderstandings later. It is amazing how a far a good attitude will go.

Serra Mazda
EASIER THAN ORDERING A PIZZA! After 3 days of haggling with my local delearship in Montgomery, I was unable to make the deal work. I called Serra Mazda, asked for the sales manager and I was immediatly connected with Paul. I spoke with him about the exact same vehicle I wanted to have the local dealership pick up and bring to me (88 miles). I told Paul that I had already driven the car model, pre-qualified, and was serious about getting the car that day. This was at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday 11/13/12. After a 30 minute phone call ( I had to take a call on other line for 12 minutes, Paul DID NOT hang up)Paul gave me a price that I was happy with and turned me over to Tony B. for finance questions. Still over the phone, Tony B. was able to beat our financing by 2.5%. My husband and I left Montgomery, AL. at 4:45 p.m. We got to SERRA MAZDA at 6:30 p.m. Paul and Tony B. had everything ready for us. The paper work was filled out ready to go and all we had to do was sign. All numbers were as we discussed and they gave me great amount on my trade. We were in the dealership less than 45 minutes and walking out with our new keys. The car had been detailed and filled up prior to us coming. Tony B. gave us the required walk around and information before we left the lot.Real talk, we were back home in Montgomery (88miles each way) before 10:00 p.m. I truly wanted to sleep in my brand new Mazda CX-9 that night.. The car is wonderful, however the experience at this dealership was above and beyond anything I could have expected. I felt so comfortable with Paul and Tony B. This comfort level was established within a 6-hr transaction. Only one of which was actual face to face. I feel like I should have invited them to Thanksgiving Dinner!

First I want to say that I was pleased with my sales lady Barbara Cook. She was wonderful! My first problem occurred after I signed my papers and they gave me my key.. Only ONE key...wasn't told ahead of time and they wouldn't get another for me so I had to buy one for almost 300.00. After I had been driving my SUV a few weeks the molding on one side of my windshield came undone, after several trips to get it fixed(and it takes me 11/2 hrs round trip) they decided to have a glass person do it. They used Starnes Glass. I noticed a day later that there were dents in my hood right by the windshield, I called my service writer and discussed the problem with her,sent pics and ended up making another trip back to show them. Starnes took no responsibility for the damage and the service manager Chad Wilson said they would not cover it that I should have notified them sooner! And a windshield wouldn't have made those type of dents!I informed them as soon as I saw it!!! Any one with an ounce of common sense can see that dents right by my windshield would come from that! They informed me the windshield was taken out and new molding put in. A few days later the molding came undone on the other side of the windshield!!! I again called and talked with my service writer about getting it fixed and said no way to Starnes Glass doing it again !!! I was informed he had to correct his problem! Told her unacceptable and have sent numerous emails and left messages and no one has called me back in weeks!!!! So I just said forget this drama. Payed for the dents to be removed and had another glass repair person to fix it!

Adamson Ford
***SEE UPDATE BELOW***I bought an 04 Ford Expedition from Adamson Ford. First, they failed to do all repairs promised me before I purchased the vehicle. Also,I was treated rudely by management, based on information relayed to me from my salesman, when I attempted to back out of the sale because I wanted to wait until I could afford a later model with fewer miles.UPDATE: I was proven totally wrong about Adamson Ford, after speaking directly with a member of management. Mr. Robert Howard personally apologized to me for the way I was initially treated at the dealership. He even made a couple of good will gestures as a demonstration of his sincerity and assured me that the repairs I was promised would be done at no cost to me. Not everyone can admit when they're wrong and I believe Mr. Howard showed a lot of class by doing so. As a leader of the Sales Team at Adamson Ford, I believe he represents this company's unwavering commitment to Customer Service. I was immensely pleased by the manner in which my situation was resolved and I look forward to being an Adamson Ford customer for years to come.I highly recommend Adamson Ford to anyone in the market for a new or preowned vehicle.

Precision Collision
The service I receive was outstanding. I have no complaints of any sorts. The owner and employees were very nice and did everything to make sure I was satisfied with the service I was receiving. I didn’t have to do anything but just drop my car off and they took care of everything from the beginning to end including dealing with my insurance company. When I picked up my car, I was ecstatic. It looked better than when I drove it off the car lot when I purchased it. The paint job and the parts that were replaced matched completely. You couldn't even tell it had been hit in the front. I would recommend this company to any and everyone.

Riverchase Collision Rep
I was refered to Riverchase Collision by a work associate. I felt they went above and beyond to answer all of my questions. The pride of workmanship was evident when I came to pick up my vehicle. I am very particular about my car and I thought it looked fantastic. I brought my car to them late Friday before I had an oppertunity to square away a rental car. Riverchase Collision loaned me a car for free to drive through the weekened. Thanks y'all! You turned a bad experiance into a positive!

Had an air conditioner go out in my new Tacoma covered by warranty. Even with the hottest temperatures and offering of a courtesy vehicle, daily communication and checkpoints made from Hunter on how things were coming with the part we needed on back order. The Service staff from Dennis to Hunter to all who see me in and out for my regular service and maintenance schedules are the highest version of courteous and professional. Customer centric folks!

Adamson Ford
The people at Adamson made buying a car an unstressful experience. I saw the vehicle that I wanted online...scheduled an appointment for a test drive. I bought the vehicle at what I thought was a fair price without the exasperating high pressure sales tactics many dealers employ.Once we agreed on a price, it was just a few minutes before I was called in to complete the paperwork and I was on my way. This is the way buying a car should be.

I purchased my SUV here and although I like that the sales rep. didn't pressure me to buy my car I didn't like the rip off from the service department. OK place to buy a car here but don't take it here if you need repairs. They ripped me off several times for repairs that they obviously didn't know how to fix. I HATE paying for guess work. Of course I never went back for any repair service I needed.

Abi Collision Center
I took my car to abi after someone broke into my car and totally damaged my door handle by knocking a huge hole in my door. My insurance company recommended abi and they were done with my car before the check was even ready. They not only fixed my car rite away but they did a great job on it. And they also gave me a free car wash and oil change. I highly recommend this auto body shop..
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.
