Lithia Auto Body Shop
I live in Austin, TX but if I ever have any auto body issues in the future here in corpus you can be sure this is where I will take my vehicle. From my first phone call to them, it was evident that they listened to you and were more than competent - not just answering the phone because it rang or trying to rush you off the phone. It got better in person ... from the moment I arrived and was greeted by MR. Baumle whom just happened to be walking out while I was walking in. Mr. Baumle was viewing my insurance estimate and verifying our conversation over the phone. He immediately called for my rental car, and then called for my vehicle parts. In 15 minutes I was gone. By noon, THAT DAY, my vehicle was completely ready (it was very minor damage) and I was promptly called. When I picked up my vehicle it was washed and vacuumed. Now I realize washing the vehicle may be standard, but these days you seem to find people cutting corners and here I found lovely little things in addition to the main event.

Pro Drive
I brought my 2007 Toyota Avalon in for an alignment check and electrical issues. I had a few vague diagnoses from different shops, but no one told me exactly what the issues were. My car also went through 2 sets of 80k mile tires in less than a year; obviously it had serious problems. Discount Tires recommended Pro Drive to me and within a few hours these guys called with a complete list of everything that was wrong. They made A LOT of repairs and had my vehicle back within a few days. This is the most courteous, professional, and loyal group of people I have had the pleasure of doing business with in this city. I had a friend who is a mechanic verify they did, in fact, make all the repairs they charged me for. He said they absolutely did everything, did it well, and charged me fairly. I will never take my vehicle anywhere else. I can say with integrity that I recommend these guys and sincerely appreciate the hard work and honest business practices they showed me.

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
Ive got an old 97 Ford F250 beat up work truck with 250,000 miles on it. I take real good care of the maintenance items but the paint and body were showing their age. It was really looking rough. Dents and scratches and all. I was planning on finally getting rid of the battered old thing, when my wife sugested MAACO Paint and Collission Repair to fix it up. The people at MAACO did a super job of fixing all the damage and put the sweetest red paint on it. It also cost a lot less than what I thought. and the final was exactly what they quoted. I will recommend everyone I know that this is the only place to get a perfect paint job. Thanks MAACO

I got a rock dent on the top of my 1 month old car that scratched it down to the metal. Along with the large dent there were several other small dents. I took it to Leo's on Monday and got it back Friday and it looks like nothing ever happened to it. It was very quick and the quality of the repair is so good you can't notice anything. No warping, no raised areas, paint match perfectly. They were also very reasonable priced and did not force you to go through insurance like other places I got estimates for. I recommend Leo's for anyone who needs a dent repair or collision repair.

Auto Crafters Paint & Body
I took my Chevy cobalt to these guys after my hood had flown up and shattered my windshield. They were very polite and extremely pleasant. I spoke with Mark about getting my car fixed. They did the repairs in a timely manner and everything looks great on my car. They even cleaned my car out from all the broken glass. I had my car back in less than a week when the other shops said it would take a month. These guys are great! I definatly recommend them and will be returning if I ever need anything else worked on.

Daddy O's Paint & Body
Daddy Os is run by a team of friendly and professional staff. They gave me a great quote on the spot and scheduled my Car in promptly. The work was done quickly and with care. I was very satisfied with the result. They also included to my surprise a follow up inspection and power polish a week later once the paint was cured at no additional cost. I definitely would highly recommend them as they were hardworking, honest, and professional. Thanks to them and their team.

Galvan's Paint & Body Shop
Galvan's paint and body shop did an outstanding job on my 2014 VW Jetta. They did touch ups and washed car afterwards. I would highly recommend this paint and body shop to anyone. Very professional and polite personnel. Excellent pricing as well

American Collision Repair Center
Highly recommend. They matched the factory orange paint on our honda si perfectly. We can not even tell there was ever any damage to the rear bumper. The staff was nice and made it so easy to get the repair started.

Really great team. Been here a few times, i noticed it means a lot that their customers are satisfied. Their work is top notch. Not too many businesses like this. I would give them 6-Stars if i could.

Had them repaint the roof of my Tundra. They did a very professional job and matched the metallic tan paint very well. Easy to work with and nice people. I'd use them again if needed.
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.
