Dingman's Collision CTR
We had a minor fender bender on a car that was less than a year old. Off the car dealer’s recommendation, we took it to Dingman’s. I severely regret doing so. The quote came in higher than everyone else’s, but we thought the quality would make up for it. They didn’t get the car into their shop for almost 2 months, and once it did get in, it took a week to repair it. (After the fact, I got an opinion from a competitor, and most other shops would have gotten the car in within 2 weeks and it would have been done in 3 days.)They were informed that this repair would be done out of pocket. The final bill ended up being 3 times what the quote was. This is somewhat understandable, as most body shops don’t know what all needs to be repaired until after the car has had some disassembly. Fearing this was a shop that took advantage of customers, by either gender profiling them or because of an out of pocket payment, I did some investigation. I Googled all the parts that they bought new, and they were on average $542.15 more than what I could find online (3 separate OEM sources). I knew calling about it wouldn’t get me my money back, but I wanted a little bit of an explanation. I called and got an estimator named Gary on the phone. He was EXTREMELY rude to me, and questioned my motives for calling. He acted disgusted that I was wasting his time calling in. He made numerous excuses to try to justify the company’s actions. He had an insulting tone, asking why I even wanted to waste my time calling in to go over parts. I informed him that because of the way he treated me on the phone, I would go out of my way to tell people to avoid Dingman’s. I said Iwould give them bad reviews wherever I could, and I would not speak highly of them on any social media platform. He almost sounded pleased when he told me ‘if that’s your prerogative, go right ahead.’In conclusion, please avoid Dingman’s at all costs. I would give them negative stars if I could. I feel like they price gouged a customer once they found out they were paying out of pocket instead of going through insurance. And when questioned about prices, they were rude, short, and demeaning to the customer over the phone. Literally, any option in Omaha would be better.EDIT - 3/17/2015: Dingman's has been proactive with contacting me about the negative reviews. Even asking what it would take for me to take the negative reviews down. They did not specifically state they would give me money, but I didn't know what else that could possible be referring to. I told them a dollar amount in the ballpark of my deductable, and they wouldn't entertain a number that high. Makes me wonder how many bad reviews have been removed about this place to keep their online reputation up. Just more information for potential consumers to consider.

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
well I must say,there's only 3 maaco auto body shops in town,and I called all 3 places,the one on 72nd. & in council bluffs,was really rude to talk to,at times I thought I was in the twilight zone,I mean i couldn't believe how unprofessional they were,...but there was light at the end of the tunnel, the one on 84th Street was the best one,customer service was a lil more pleasant,and I only paid half of what everybody else wanted to charge me for fixing my car,anyway I had to wait a week & a 1/2 for my vehicle to get done,worth the wait tho, they did a great job on fixing the large dent on the side of my car,they said they can only fix 80% of the damage,but what I saw, it looked almost like a 100%,it looked almost brand new, they even polished off most of the scuff marks that was on the truck,they also shined my tire up &,that's not even part of the body!!,the only thing I didn't like was,after they got done fixing my truck,I noticed a couple of Brown sand like dirt stains that was hard to scrape off with my fingernail when I tried!!,but I'm sure it will come off with a lil elbow grease,just hope I don't scratch the paint trying to get off tho!!,overall I was impressed by the work they did to fix that dent.

Ryan Collision Ctr Inc
Originally from California, I was not sure where to go after my car accident. Luckily the insurance of the one at fault recommended me to Ryan Collision Center. I was grateful for their quick accommodation. They called me for updates on my car and did a fantastic job. It looked brand new. The staff was very friendly and professional. I would definitely go there again.

I have used Dingman's a couple of times in the last year. Their service and workmanship are OUTSTANDING. When I was involved in a hit and run accident, they were friendly, helpful, and fast. They coordinated getting my rental car delivered to the midtown location so I could do everything in one stop. They were fast, and when I got my car back, it looked like nothing had happened to it. (and the damage that they fixed was not minor). Today I took it over because I had accidentally side-swiped an object and had a scuff on my right front fender. I was not sure if it could be buffed out or if I would need to file an insurance claim to have it repaired. They agreed to look at it right then. (I was prepared to make an appointment). They then took my car in the back, and buffed off the scuff and you can't tell anything happened! Even better, they didn't charge me a penny to do this. They just did it because they are a good business. I can't recommend them enough. It's no wonder that they are consistently voted the "best in Omaha".

My new Subaru Legacy was damaged in a recent hail storm with close to $7,000 worth of damage. Dingman's did a fantastic job and went to great lengths preserve the new car finish and structure. They understood how picky I was about my car, especially since it was less than three months old. Our family has used Dingman's in the past and always had excellent customer service and results. They are the only place I considered for my new car and would recommend them to anyone.

Had a GREAT Experience with Dingman's. My wife's van got hit so we got a rental. Due to work schedules we could only get the rental and drop off my wife's van close to closing time for both places so I went to the rental place and my wife went to Dingman's.It took me longer than expected but imagine my surprise when I pulled up to find my wife and my boys talking with guy who gave us the estimate!! The shop was closed but he chose to hang around until I got there just to ensure they were comfortable and safe.Then, to top it off, our van was done in less time than expected and looks GREAT!! They even washed it and vacuumed it out. No small task considering the two young boys who live in the back!Thanks to Dingman's we'll be keeping the van a while longer.

I have recently sent my truck into Ryan Collision Center for repair and received outstanding results. Their service was affordable, quick, and very reliable. I would defiantly encourage anyone to go Ryan Collision Center if they ever need their vehicle fixed.

Find someone else to fix your car. We took my wife's car there. When we dropped it off there were NO brake problems. When they released it to us, it had no brakes at all. They would have just let my wife drive away with NO BRAKES. Went back in and they denied they caused any problem. We called the insurance company who called them and told them if they didn't fix the damage they did, they'd not work for the insurance company again. VERY RUDE people. They made us wait 4 more days before they would fix the damage they did to the car.

HORRIBLE. Gave them two chances, fist they never fixed a problem with my window after three visits. Then they took a month and a half to get my car back after telling me it would only take a maximum of two weeks. Very disappointing. Never using this service again.

Raw Body Customs
I couldnt disagree more with Joan's review. Nick is just getting started on a frame off restoration on my 40 Ford. He's had it 2 weeks and I'm amazed at the progress. Looking at his past work was what brought me here. He's been great to work with and very knowledgeable. I have been hot rodding for 40 years and from what I have seen so far, Nick is the man to go to for restoration.
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.
