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!!

Impact Collision Repair
My experience with Impact Collision was anything but smooth and trouble-free. The guys never had time to do it right, but they always had time to do it again … and again … and again. I kept getting my vehicle back with obvious damage unrepaired. Six trips over an eight week span to fix the front corner. Impact Collision was by far the worst part of my accident. My recommendation is to not damage your vehicle, but if you do then take it elsewhere.

Seppalas Body Shop & Restoration
Paint matching was perfect on my 1993 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe rear spoiler. They buffed out the rest of my car too. Looks like new again!!!

They replaced my side view mirror cheaply and quickly and I was very happy with the service and friendliness of the staff!

Did a great job on my car. They cleaned it inside and out, and they were very pleasant. Would definitely recommend.
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.
