Universal Body Shop
Brought my damaged 2016 Santa Fe in for and estimate and Tom clearly explained what he would do for my vehicle and gave me what I thought was a more than fair price. I left my vehicle at his shop on a Wednesday, then I left for vacation and then I returned to the shop the following Wednesday and found my car beautifully repaired. No one looking at my vehicle could ever know that it had been damaged. In short I found the service here to be honest, timely, professional and honest. I highly recommend.

If your looking for an Honest, Trustworthy mechanic Joel is the man for you. He offers more professional service then I have seen in many years. My experiences with him have always been great. He not only explains what is wrong with a car but he tries to educate his customers in how to avoid the problem in the future and what it takes to repair it in the present. He does not want to hide any part of the repairs from the customer.

I had a wonderful experience at Joe's. My car was involved in a minor accident. I'm so glad I brought my car here. The shop has Professional staff, does excellent work, and they really care about their customers. The owner went above and beyond to even touch up some paint for me at no cost when he didn't have to. Highly recommended for any of your body shop needs.

I would definitely recommend Universal Body Shop. They did an excellent job repairing rust on my 2008 mazda 3. They are honest and didn't keep my car longer than needed. They also explained everything they did. I would definitely use them again.

Had some work done on my car after being hit while I was parked. Affordable place and had the car back to be much sooner than I expected. I have recommended many people to this ship and have all had the same great experience.

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.
