Rettig's Auto Body
2013 Honda Crosstour. Referred to me by Tameron where I bought my car. Rettigs was not an approved repair shop by my insurance but I insisted. $10k later and 5 weeks later my car is ready. When I test drive I told Rettigs it was very noisy. Sounded like my sunroof was open. It was not. I insisted they drive it and Rettigs said it was "normalwind noise Blowing over the side mirrors". So I took it to Tameron and had them drive it (I didn't tell them what to look or listen for). Within 15 seconds they said it was too noisy. They asked me if my sunroof was open. It was not. When I went to back to Rettigs and told them this they said if I brought my car back that I would be PERSONALL RESPONSIBLE FOR MONIES if insurance didn't pay. I told them but you didn't do your job. I would think after $10k you'd be able to make it right. They didn't care.

Rettig's Auto Body
Excellent company with which to do business. I had front end work done, including paint. They scheduled me quickly and the work was done quickly with only a minor, understandable delay for a dealer out-of-stock situation on one of the parts. Paint was White metallic and matched perfectly with adjacent body panels. Very reasonable price. They cleaned the interior thoroughly, at no charge. Highly recommended.
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.
