Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
A Must try place. I Never wrote any yelp review yet but this place made me write something good about them. I had my lexus Rx300's tailgate was not opening up. I went to 3 different auto repair shop but all of them referred me to go to Lexus dealer and couple of others asked $100 just to investigate.Lexus dealer took $130 to investigate the issue and gave me estimation of $780 to fix that. I just thought to try Maaco as last option as they give free estimation before I gave it to lexus dealer.Shawn was the guy who fixed it without replacing any part and charged me just an hour of labor. He also fixed a small other issue at free of cost.Shawn was very knowledgeable and honest mechanic ever saw. This place definitely deserve appreciation for the amazing work they did for me.I am not sure if everyone has similar experience here that I had but I would suggest to try them once or atleast get estimation from them.

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
Wow, Wow, Wow. So impressed. We had gotten 4 quotes to fix a rust problem on my car, all around the $2,000-$3,000 range. Maaco came back with an $895 estimate. They also forewarned us that it is possible they might break the windshield due to where the rust was and that would be another $175. I was a little sketched out leaving my keys in the drop box after hours. The box could have easily been opened with a pry bar, and we were not in the nicest part of town. I would suggest if you are going to drop your car off, be sure to do it when they]re open and avoid this added stress. 3 days later, they fixed the problem ahead of schedule AND $100 under the estimate!! The results are awesome, the windshield was not broken, and I could not be happier.

After purchasing a car that clearly needed a full paint job, I priced checked at a few auto shops around Columbus and Maaco's price was over a thousand dollars cheaper than any other quotes I received. I was a little skeptical, but went through with it and was so happy with the results! They matched the paint color perfectly and my car looks good as new. They also pointed out other dents I could get fixed, but when I said I just wanted a paint job they were not pushy whatsoever. Overall it was a great value because I saved a ton of money and my car looks great, and I would highly recommend for an affordable paint job!

Rader Collision Center
Best body shop in Columbus! Danny and Marty are absolutely wonderful. The paint matched perfectly and all body panels were straight and aligned correctly. Not only was the car clean when I got it back, but they were nice enough to buff out some blemishes on non-affected parts of the car. As another reviewer said, they are friendly, professional, and thorough. They treat you as if you were family.They blew my expectations out of the water - Will do business with Rader again!

I have had many repairs done by CG's over the past 25years and have never been disappointed. He recently patched up my 2002 BMW convertible to such perfection that most people think it is a brand new car! There is no sacrifice in Chris' work and I have recommended him to several friends over the years, who all agree, he is the best kept secret in Columbus, when it comes to body repairs.~JH

it had been more than 2 years since CG fixed my fender originally. A couple rust spots had developed & I wanted them fixed before they got worse. Chris not only fixed the rust spots but he touched up all the nicks & scratches on the bumpers as well. To top it off he didn't charge me, stating that his work is guaranteed. Thanks Chris!

Maaco repaired my 2015 Ram 2500. The company did an excellent job at a fair price. In fact, its estimate was less than half the estimate I had received from one of Columbus's "best!" The Manager, Matt Armitage is a terrific guy and was very helpful. I would recommend this business to anyone.

The owner which whom I met is very nice and they take care of all their customers! I'm a huge fan and they don't take advantage of their customers like most car places! Yeah it's a bad area but the staff is very helpful and they make you feel like your number one on their list!!!!
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.
