Budget Body & Paint
I recently took a vehicle that I'm trying to sell to this company, after the vehicle had sustained some damage in an accident. Nate, who's the owner, was very polite, very friendly, and very helpful. He inspected the damage to the vehicle - (the most severe being on the panel, just above the back passenger's-side tire) - and gave us an estimate. His estimate was the most reasonable and affordable one that I had found out of the 3 auto body repair places that I checked with. When we went to pick up the vehicle, I was literally *shocked* - (and quite happily so) - at what I saw!...I saw no dents or scratches, where there had been dents and scratches before! The vehicle looked as if it had never been involved in an accident!...And not only that, but because of the attentive and detailed work that Nate and his employees at Budget Body & Paint did, the vehicle literally looked brand new - as if it had just come off the lot! (I was so shocked at first, all I could think and say was, "Where's the dents?! Where's dents?!") I would, without a doubt (or even a second thought) recommend Nate and his company, Budget Body & Paint, to *ANYONE* who wants good service, truly competitive prices, and outstanding results! You will *NOT* be displeased with his service, his prices, or his results! In fact, if I ever have any vehicles that need any auto body repair - I know *exactly* where I'm going!...And of course, I'm not going anywhere other than to Nate's "Budget Body & Paint"! Thank you Nate & company! Great job! Keep up the great work!

Divinity-Auto Repair
It is rare that I use a Professional to work on my vehicles, rarer yet that I entirely trust what they are telling me. Divinity is an exception. If you own a Toyota or Lexus you should give them a look. The first thing I noticed was the spotless repair shop, rare in independent shops. As I spoke to Ralph, the owner, it became clear that I was dealing with an intelligent and articulate gentleman. Most surprisingly was Ralph telling me I did not need some of the preventative services that I was requesting such as a brake fluid and transfer case fluid change, that he would check them instead and only service if needed. I finally said, "I'm trying to give you money here and you are turning it down!" That was probably 8 years ago and that pattern has continued, great service that has kept our Tacoma running flawlessly, without unnecessary costs. Once, an aftermarket belt that they had installed developed a flaw. It would have been easy for them to say the belt was under warranty but I would be responsible for the labor, a common occurrence. But no, repairs at no charge. Another time when my check engine light came on the diagnostic computer indicated a relatively expensive part needed replacing. I'm quite sure that another repair shop would have replaced the part but Ralph refused to believe that this failure had occurred at such a low mileage and just reset the service light. Ultimately the problem returned and the part was faulty, but I was given a chance to avoid the repair. Thus when Ralph or Angel tell me the vehicle needs something, I trust them.

Excel Automotive Repair
I purchased an used Satrun 2002 and ran into couple problems since I had it last October 2012.Firstly, it was a computer problem. I did not agree with Steve when he told me his opinion after his diagnosis. The computer in a car should be a very durable component which 99% of time it requires replaced is when it was damaged in car crash. However, with full refund promise if it is not computer problem, I let Steve do the job and amazingly, it fixed the problem. The most impressive thing he spent extra hours on New Year Eve day and give my car back in the same day.Second time was a battery problem which, of course, the car was totally not kicking when tried to start it up. Once again, I had same doubt on Steve since it seems to me the car still has power occasionally but just so un-predictable. Once again, he is right and the battery the previous owner put in is a very poor quality one. Of course, there is no free service. Steve charged what he need to charge. Diagnosis fee, labor and so on. But, it he did the right job honestly. All I can say here, to my Saturn, he proved to me that he is really good on it. I will recommended their service to you especially you have a Saturn.

Vargas Auto Service
My husband and I have both had a great experience with Vargas Auto Service. We took his car in last year for an engine replacement and they did a great job on his car. This year we took an Acura MDX in because it was shutting off with the cold. The check engine light was indicating a misfire with the coils so they replaced them, but the care was still shutting off with the cold. I called them to let them know and scheduled some time to bring the car back in, however, I wasn't able to make it in when I said I would. I was really impressed because they called me to follow up and find out when I would be bringing the car back in. When I brought the car back in they did fix the issue and did not charge us anything more. This may not be the case for everyone but I do believe they are fair. They are honest mechanics with great customer service. Also, I like that they are organized. They have a computer system in place that stores what they've done for you along with your info. This makes it easy to work with them because you don't have to remind them what they've done for you and give them your info again every time you come in. I highly recommend them!
Mack's Restoration
I bought a 2003 6.0 powerstroke last year and have had nothing but problems with it and this year it failed safety for all four ball joints. My neighbor told me to call and have him look at it. I brought it into them in the afternoon and told them about the ball joints and my fuel leak he said I should be able to have you back on the roadthe next morning. He called me about an hour later and said there is nothing wrong with the right side ball joints they weren't too tight or loose said it was just the left side and he told me he called the i/m station and told them there was nothing wrong with them they called me and said they where so sorry and they will mark them off. He reqouted me a price for just the one side and said he will get right on it. Anyways he changed the one side and replace an o ring and after tax the bill was 50 less than the second price of was very happy. Thank you

Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting
Maaco matches the need. I drive my cars for a long time. When I need a paint job Maaco in SLC has a paint job to match the car. My nicer cars get a nicer paint job. My older cars get a paint job that is appropriate for the age of the car. The guys at Maaco never insult me for not wanting their top of the line paint job for a car that is already past its prime. I think I have used them 3 times now. My cars are stored in a garage so I have never had a paint job fade but they warn you that their lower end paint jobs will start to fade after a few years. They will work with you if you want to do some of the prep work or something to save some money. In the end I usually decide to pay them to do it all because it makes more sense. I have painted cars enough to know that having them do the whole thing makes more sense since they are professional.

Thank you Shingle Pro! Honest, courteous knowledgeable and patient with our questions--after major winter storm damage and flooding, Kim, at Shingle Pro, offered hope to us as we explained our roof damage and insurance frustrations.

Our roof was a bit complicated upon first inspection and Jason made sure to listen to our questions and research the solution before proceeding. His bid absolutely fair. The Shingle Pro crew was impressive and careful. REFRESHING! This crew took time to help me understand each step of what was a very big project. Best of all, our house looks stunning, has no leaks, and keeps the temperature steady. What a difference Shingle Pro has made in the life of my family! Call Shingle Pro for sure.

Chuck's Service Center
These guys really helped me out on my trip out West. I was having car troubles. The guys down the street Clark's told me it was a bad water pump after having the car for about five hours and told me it was going to cost 1200 dollars to fix. I took it over to Chuck's and he showed me it was a leak it in the overflow tank had it fixed in less than an hour for 100 dollars. Not only that, they helped me with my rear brake calipers and charged a very reasonable price. Hopefully, they keep this kind of service going! It seems common that people will take advantage of a traveler from out of town, but these guys were really down to earth and seemed to care. The people who came in, the regulars, also seemed to be really swell people and all were in the family. So, from Michael at the monastery, a big big thanks!

Dent & Ding Auto Body
Someone dinged my door on my brand new 2013 Charger R/T while seeing Iron Man 3. I about lost it when I saw the dent while walking back to my car. Extremely frustrated, I began Googling "how to remove door dings." After an hour of reading, I decided to leave it to a "professional." I Googled "paintless dent removal" in my local area and discovered this mobile business with the most positive reviews. I gave Mike a call and a few hours later he came out and went straight to work. Within 20 minutes, Mike's magical perfection made my baby look better than the day I bought it (he took out a manufacturer defect on another door for free)! This minor repair was worth every penny and I definitely recommend Mike to those who demand perfection for the perfect value!

Shingle Pro Roofing Co
Shingle Pro is the BEST! I had to have our roof replaced while my spouse was away with the military - needless to say, I was a "roofing rookie" but Jason was awesome in explaining the process and very patient with me and explained everything that would be done - he took all the worry out of it for me. The price was fair, the work was done when they told me it would be and there wasn't any mess for me to clean up. Jason stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. A roof is a huge investment and it was great to work with someone who cares about their customer. I highly recommend Shingle Pro. The workmanship and products are top notch and you just can't beat the customer service!
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.
