Sherds Transmission & Auto Repair Service Inc
Sherds is a very honest business who take pride in what they do. We appreciate everything that Paul has done for us and our vehicles. Today I went to two separate garages being heritage on Scribner st and lentz on Alpine nw and both told me that they couldn't do an alignment because I needed upper and lower ball joints and would cost me approximately 6-$700.00. I felt these garages were lieing to me. So I brung my truck to old trusty Sherds and after speaking with Paul and dropping off my truck he called me back with the best information ever. I did not need new ball joints at this time. Simple greasing up the fittings and he can do the alignment for about $60.00 Save me about a whole alot of money. Thanks for being such and honest garage. All the Guy's are awesome too. Cant go wrong with Sherds. Very reasonable prices and most of all they're honest. Thanks,Doug. Fresh cuts lawn care and landscaping.

Merl's Towing Service
Tangled mess of enclosed dual axle trailer and a Ford F250. Only 1 wheel of 8 was on the ground when Merl'sTowing Service team of "Post Accident Engineers" (others humbly call them "tow truck drivers") arrived on the seen. Our enclosed Gutter machine trailer was flipped upside down and the truck was on its edge about the tumble down the embankment. The occupants were safe and now it was to up to the experts to pull apart the 2 without causing any more damage. To our amazement they did it using 3 tow trucks and 4 experts. At risk of being damaged was nearly $30,000 of uninsured equipment, actual additional damage during the process less than $500 bucks! Thanks for being there when we needed your team Mark Fredette, Todd and the rest of the team and dispatchers. Sincerely, Tony Cobb owner All Gutter Systems Grandville, MI

Jay's Garage
Jay's garage did great work on my 2003 Yamaha V-Max last fall. I had been referred to him from some friends at AutoZone as a very competent mechanic at reasonable rates. He went well above what I ever expected and made sure things were right.I had Jay do a lot of maintenance that I had been putting off for quite some time. He did a valve adjustment on my bike's V-4, took care of some leaking carbs, did some front end work to resolve some pesky wobble issues, replaced tires & more.All I can say is my experience with Jay was great. I haven't checked out his new location yet, but I soon will as I need him to look over a 2010 FJR1300 I recently picked up.Brian W.

Complete Automotive Repair Inc
My died when I stopped in Coopersville for gas. Tried to Jump it and nothing. Called AAA and they sent out A two truck. Checked the battery and was good but the connection was bad. He got it started and said I should not drive to Bath, Mi. Said he would follow me to the Alpine Exit and replace the connections. Took about 15 minutes and only charged me for the parts and I was good to go. So grateful for what he did for me. Very nice. I like auto repair shops like this. Would go back if I needed anything if I didn't live so far. Might just go anyway. thank you Complete Automotive Repair.

Accurate Alignment & Brake Service
I have been extremely satisfied the auto repair work Accurate Alignment & Brake Service done for me. I also know several of my friends have experienced the same great service from this family owned company. Scott and Nathan take the time to clearly explain my options and their recommendations for the service and repair of my vehicle's suspension, brake and steering systems. More than once I have found Accurate Alignment to be significantly lower priced than others, their estimates are fair and there are no pricing games. I trust and recommend Accurate Alignment.

German Auto Service Ltd
I do a lot of work myself and have worked in shops in the past but have never had a better auto repair experience than german auto service. GAS delivers what all auto repair shops should strive for. Over the past few years, I have taken volkswagens, BMW, Mercedes to GAS for things from simple oil changes to complex and custom fabrication jobs. Almost every time I was surprised with a quicker and lower cost repair or customization than I had expected. These guys know their stuff and are honest. I have and would recommend them to anyone with a car...of any make.

Koenes Auto Body
I picked Koenes out of a list of collision places I got from my insurance company from the great reviews it got on the web. I was not steered wrong - Koenes was professional, clean, organized and well-run. The staff were all pleasantn and well informed. They work well with the rental place and arranged for my rental car to be brought to the shop and I left it there when I was done with it - how easy was that! They did an awesome job with my car and also washed it and vacuumed it. I will be recommending Koenes to anyone who needs an auto body shop!!

Accurate Alignment & Brake Service
I took my car to Accurate Alignment after taking it to two different shops and the dealership. I called shops and other dealerships, after everyone said there was nothing they could do to help me out, no adjustments, no shims, ect... Accurate Alignment took the extra time to find and create special shims for what I needed. They communicated well with me and had my car done in a timely fashion. I know that all my cars from now on will get their alignment done at Accurate Alignment. Exceptionable customer experience. They have just created a customer for life.

Christian Brothers Automotive-Grand Rapids
I have no working knowledge as to the mechanical workings of my car.But this is no excuse on my part to not have had an inspection of my brakes before they started to "scream". Because of what I heard from a number of people,I drove to Christian Brothers Automotive and had an inspection. I authorized the repair,was driven to my work,and by early afternoon had my car.Only wish I had seen Kurt and his staff before my waiting cost me more.If faith is belief in the unknown,go back to the name of this service.Christian Brothers Automotive.GB Jerry.

Extreme Car Audio
I've used them twice. Years ago to put a remote starter in my wife's car. I had to take it back twice because it wouldn't unlock properly. Then I had a stereo installed 2 years ago in my boat. It took forever to get sales assistance and they had my boat an additional 6 hours longer than they said. If you tell me it will be done by noon and I come back at 12:30 and you haven't started it, that is a way to P me off. I know the owner and it felt as though he had made his money and knew there were be more people coming in the door after I left. Sad.
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.
