California Collision Center
Thanks Manny, for being a beautiful human being, and making my day! My 2006 Subaru WRX looks new again! It was T-boned on the driver's side rear door, and was dented and scratched almost the whole surface area of the rear door body panel.California Collision came with recommendation from my insurance company, and after talking to many shops and researching on the web, I decided to take my Subie to Manny and Joe's shop. It was the best decision I've ever made in terms of picking a body shop, and I cannot be happier! When I talked to Manny on the phone the first time, I could tell he had a deep knowledge and experience on body work, and after talking to him for a few minutes, I was confident that he would take care of my car and restore it to its original state. You see, I had a horrific experience with a body shop in the past, where I had to go back at least three times, maybe four, to have them correct their imperfect work. But Manny would listen to my horror stories like my own brother, made some comments about the how it's not the company or the shop, but people who either make or break the results of body work...and he explained to me what he would do exactly to fix my car. That made me feel very much at ease, and was vital in my decision to trust him with my car.And his work does back up his shop's all 5 star rating on Yelp! My subie looks brand new again, and Manny and Joe even cleaned the car inside and out for me! They are both the nicest and the friendliest people you will ever meet! I highly recommend these guys for any body work for your car.Thanks guys!

California Collision Center
Someone drove too close to my car on the street and tore off my driver's side mirror. I went to one body shop and they wanted almost a month's rent to fix it. I was milling over what to do while stopped at a red light when I looked over and noticed California Collission Center. (I say noticed because I have seen the shop on my way to work for the last four years, but never took note of it until now.) Anyway, I stopped in, they looked at my mirror, gave me an estimate that was one-third of the other shop's cost, answered all my questions, and then proceeded to order the mirror with only a $5 deposit! (It was all I had on me at the time.) They kept me up to date on the order (which only took two days) and, when I came to the shop on my lunch hour they promptly finished the replacement and got me out fast. Polite, professional, punctual, and very affordable. I have recommended them to others and will continue to do so.

Prime Auto Collision
I recently had my car repaired at Prime Time collision center which was recommended by my insurance company. I must say their service is second to none. From the time I walked into their office until I picked up my car, which by the way looked better than when I first bought it. Their staff was professional and helpful and they turned a negative experience into a positive one. They truly make you feel like family.Plus I was very pleasantly suprised to see that they care more about the customer rather than the insurance company as evidenced by the fact that they fought with the insurance company to replace parts with originals rather than cheap aftermarket ones. These days you have to be very careful with body shops, especially not knowing how the industry works, but they way they treated me was sufficient to conclude that they are experts at what they do.

This is an awesome auto body shop in Glendale! I was comfortable with leaving my BMW M5 at this body shop because I I've heard good things about this place and when I went there I saw a lot of luxury cars so that made me confident in their auto body work. They finished up all the body work on my car much faster than they promised. They made my car look as perfect as brand new and they even gave my car a free exterior detail and interior detail. I appreciate this body shop and I'll definitely be back in the future if I need them.

Top notch quality work, honestly delivered at a fair and reasonable cost. One in a million--didn't know this type of auto repair garage existed anymore.

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.
