I had my car repaired after an accident and they did a great job fixing it. The repairs were guaranteed through the insurance. Five months later my car was making a noise on and off. I called and they fit me in the next. My car decided to not make the noise the day I took it. The mechanic looked it over, took it for a drive, and the put it up on the lift to check everything out. He double checked everything they fixed. He ended up finding a rock that had worked its way down into around my ball joint. He said that's most likely where the noise was coming from. I'm glad he checked everything out and didn't just dismiss me since it wasn't making the noise that day. He said he wanted to make sure it was safe for me. The staff are very pleasant and very helpful. I will be back in the unfortunate event I need to and suggest them to anyone in need.

Straub did an excellent job with my vehicle. The only complaint I have, is when I received my vehicle back it had an additional 1,100 miles on it. I found documentation with my mileage on it prior to it going to the repair shop.
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.
