The owner Simon gave me a quote of to do a repair on my car. When I went to pickup my car, he added on extra charges totaling almost 33% more on to the estimate. He claimed that it was to cover additional labor, but he never once informed me of the needed labor, nor did he get my consent. This shop is suspect and the owner scammed me. Do Not let yourself be scammed. Find another shop, any shop, that's more honest then this one.

Very shady! Simon put the cvjoint on wrong side of car. Brought car back, he continued to change and charge me for parts that I did not need untill I relized what he did. Confronted him, he acted like he did not care and wanted me to pay another bill. Also I uncovered he charged double the price of parts that he gets them for. This guys is a real joker!

PN Auto Body Repair
PN Auto has the highest quality of body and paint work in the area! I took in my Grand Cherokee for a full custom paint job and minor body work. Not only did the paint job come out amazing, they were able to paint my rims the same Crystal Black color of my jeep. I was traveling during this time and didn't have a chance to visually check on their work. Trust me, I didn't come back disappointed! Would recommend PN Auto to all in the CT area. Very professional and fair employees.

PN Auto Body Repair
Not only did P&N not fix our car correctly the first two chances, we had to bring it back a third time for the same issues. On their first try, they made the car worse than before it went in. They used cheap parts, didn't replace some original factory parts, never came close to lining up body panels and the paint was horrible. We brought it back a second time and they corrected a couple things but again, inferior parts (but charged us for OEM parts) and never checked their work. We had to bring it back for the third time and although it looks ok, owner refused to release car without cash and then lied to authorities as to why he refused to release the car. I can understand and accept mistakes but not only is the work inferior, they are less than honest. I will be contacting the BBB as well as my insurance company to make sure they investigate what I consider sub-standard work but also shady accounting/billing practices. I wouldn't recommend P&N to anyone...

PN Auto Body Repair
I can't really write about the quality of PN AUTO's auto body work, because after their unprofessional work on an insurance claim estimate, I would never let them do any work on my car! The Insurance company recommended them after someone backed into my car in a parking lot. It was clearly their fault and they took full responsibility. PN were the closest on the list the company provided. Zibby met me at the location on Queen St in Southington. He took some pictures with his cell phone and tapped on a computer and wrote up a Preliminary Estimate, and gave me the figure verbally as well. (about $1,500.00 for a dented door panel and scraped fender and mirror.) He said he was sending to the Insurance company right then. When I got back home in Bristol I noticed estimate totals which included "CUSTOMER PAY" and "INSURANCE PAY" line items with random dollar figures that made no sense!When I spoke to Zibby again that afternoon he apologized and asked if I could come back to get a correct copy, but then offered to drop it off at my house the next morning, since the insurance company wanted more pictures anyway. I met him in my driveway for a new "correct" estimate and he took more pictures of the damage to my car with his phone. After 2 days during which Zibby insisted he had sent the estimate and the Insurance rep said they had received nothing from him, I learned that an adjuster of some kind had reviewed the estimate and noticed that Zibby i had accidentally put in 5 full hours of labor to fix the driver's side mirror instead of half an hour, and the estimate had been reduced to one thousand dollars. I would avoid them altogether after the way they royally screwed this up for me. Somebody else will be doing the work, and they have told me they will have to bill the insurance company for damage that PN AUTO had missed.
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.
