I took my car to Rick's Body Shop because my car was backed into while in park. Called Rick's and they got me really quick and was very helpful with the process. I didn't need an estimate as the insurance company had an appraiser look at the car. Rick's accepted the estimate with no issue. Received my car back it looked like it did when I first purchased it. They even washed my car. Now that is service. I hope I don't have to ever get my car repaired again but if I do Rick's will be my first call.

Had back bumper replaced after we got back into and he did a WONDERFUL JOB!!! The car looked nearly brand new because he also went across the car and for no charge pulled out some of the dings and dents!! We are going to take all of our vehicles there from now on!! His prices were $500 less than any other quote we got! I will recommend them to everyone!!

It's hard to find an honest mechanic that isn't trying to rip you off. They never try to upsell me on any unnecessary repairs!

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.
