Rich Mixon - BellSouth CorporationCollisionworx Auto Body was first "introduced" to me by accident while traveling through Memphis, TN from the Mississippi Gulf coast en route for East Tennessee. I was involved in an MVA (motor vehicle accident), in this metropolitan city of 1,000,000 residents. I was alone and knew nobody within 800 an mile radius (300 miles East & 500 miles South). My Toyota Camry suffered severe damage of the complete front end. The impact of the collision was so severe my hood was bent in half, pushed towards the windshield ("V" shaped). In 5:00pm commuter traffic, The Memphis Police notified a "wrecker service" to come to the scene with a flatbed (my Camry could not be "towed'.) The driver transported me & the remains of my Toyota Camry to 6916 Appling Farms Pkwy (Whitten Rd, I-40 Exit 15 (zip 38133). When I arrived I saw the nicest, cleanest Auto Body Shop I had ever seen. My initial thought was $$. I was mistaken. On that date, I had the privilege to meet Mr. Whitlock. He was so "calming" and reassuring. He showed much concern for my "well being" as he did for my vehicle. Being 6:00pm, Collisionworx was closing...Mr. Whitlock asked his staff to stay until he knew I had transportation enroute and had obtained my work related belongings from my vehicle. He provided me his personal number and graciously invited me to remain on the property until my ride (from East TN) arrived. He even phoned me from his personal phone to "check" on me. The following weeks he contacted me to advise me the "updates & status" progress Collisionworx had made on my Camry. When COLLISIONWORX repaired my car in a duration of time (I did not think was possible), I did not recognize my car. It looked better than it did before the collision. The body work was the most elite ever. The painting process looked of better quality than Toyota applied at the factory. Today, that was 3 years 7 months ago. I have only had oil changes & replaced tires per regular maintenance. Not one "sign" the car had ever been in a collision. *Unlike many other auto body experiences I have heard, Mr. Whitlock was 100% available & concerned "how is your car doing". He was aware I was "passing through" Memphis but continued to treat me as if I was local. I continue to correspond with Collisionworx 3+ years later. Recently I needed minor body work done. I went to 2 local body shops. Their work was far below standard. Family/friends said it was unnecessary to drive 4 hours to Memphis (to Collisionworx) to have this unrelated body work done. My reply was simply, "You have never been to "Collisonworx". That is all I can say to you also. I consider Mr. Whitlock a friend, and his staff my family. The staff, namely "Patricia" & "Pat" were and continue to be so good to me. When I phone regarding my Camry (annual maintenance, etc) I feel they stop what they are doing and listen to me and respond with care. If only our society had more businesses & individuals such as the family at Collisionworx, we would be in "safer trusting hands". I was never made to feel that Collisionworx was simply trying to "make $" from a motorist at another's mercy. You have my word as well as Collisionworx's, there is NO OTHER AUTO BODY shop. -Rich Mixon, East Tennessee"
I was in an accident in the early part of December. As the person at fault had Geico Insurance, I was given the option of Desoto Collision to perform the repairs. The office is run like a well-oiled machine. I walked into the office and gave my name, Kevin from Geico walked out of a side office, introduced himself and explained the entire process. After walking outside to assess the damage, the service manager walked out and introduced himself and again went over in detail the entire process. I had an out-of-state inspection sticker, and other stickers on the front, side and back windows, and though not part of the accident, when I asked if they could remove them, the service manager expressed that he would have the stickers removed. My car was in the shop from 12/8 to 12/29, and throughout the process I received regular texts and phone calls to update me on the service being performed and expected completion date. The evening I picked up my car, I met the infamous Patrick, who also was very professional. As with everyone I met, Patrick was very clear about the work that had been performed and made himself available for any concerns I might have in the future. As I am recently moved to Memphis, Patrick offered himself as a resource for any concerns I may have with my car. I have read the reviews below and am surprised. I expected Patrick to be this sleazy/shady character, but in fact he was the exact opposite. My experience was very positive. They were apologetic about the wait time but due to the holidays, I understood it could not be helped. I was provided a rental for 30 days, so there really was nothing to complain about. I would certainly take my car to Desoto if I need body work in the future!!!
By far this is the friendliest, best staffed, and most professional motorcycle dealer in Memphis. Ben is a salesperson on the floor who has always spent time with me discussing the aspects of the bikes I like, and even after I have said I would not be buying for a while. This is great as I feel welcome there and know that I will be greeted by a staff that has the knowledge and truly seems to enjoy their jobs. At some of the competitors I did not receive anything close to this professional and upbeat reception. It was also reassuring that a mechanic I talked to on his break said their service window stays the same year round as far as wait time while down the street I was told by a competitor it would be three weeks before they could look at my bike since it was summer. While I have not bought a bike there yet as I have always had used bikes, and after four years in Memphis riding and seeking out parts and advice as well as service, there is no doubt Honda/Yamaha on Mt. Moriah is the place I am given the most respect as a walk in customer. They also have easily the most bikes on the floor and the biggest service garage of any dealer in the 901 Memphis zip code. To me this is the place to buy a bike in town.
I just purchased a new 2016 Hyundai Tuscon. I had the pleasure of working primarily with Steve Bizon. I highly recommend him and this dealership - working with him felt like working with a friend more than working with a salesperson. There was no pressure, he worked with me on my sales price, and he made sure I got all the bells and whistles I was looking for. Steve was very helpful and very thorough. I also worked with Young Lee (the sales manager) and PT (I forget his last name) in finance. Both were very well-informed, and PT also made the finance part of the deal easy and without a lot of pressure. I get that they are salespeople and trying to make a living, but I really appreciate that the guys I worked with at Wolfchase Hyundai recognized that I was informed and were willing to work with me to get a great deal on the exact car (features, accessories, color, etc) I wanted.
I was on the hunt for a new vehicle in November. As soon as I walked on to the lot and met David, he went above and beyond in helping me find my perfect car. He wasn't your average cheesy, fake car sales man. He was patient and understanding, as well keeping the experience light and fun. He made sure to find the best deal, working endlessly with Sam, the finance manager, in getting me the ultimate best deal for my financial situation. Sam was amazing as well. He worked and worked with banks to find me the right rates. He explained things into common language understanding, provided me with the information I needed to understand what I was getting into and any extra protection I may need for my vehicle. Both Sam and David followed up with me weeks later asking how I was enjoying my vehicle and if I had any questions.
