My car got banged in the front corner by an anonymous hit & run. There was a bad dent in the body, and the headlight popped out. I didn't want to file for insurance because this would probably cause the insurance company to raise my rates. (This happened to me once before.) I took it to Ruben's Auto & Body Shop. I told Ruben that I didn't need it to look perfect, but just do his best for a modest price. Ruben did high-quality, prompt and inexpensive repair. I brought it in at 4:30 PM on a Monday, and it was ready by noon the next day. It looked perfectly restored to me except that the color was just slightly off--a barely perceptable flaw. Ruben said that he could have made the color match perfectly for a bit more money, but I was quite happy with the inexpensive repair. It was exactly what I wanted! I would recommend Ruben's auto body repair service to anyone. He can do perfect restoration of damaged vehicles for people who are covered by insurance, for whom cost is not critical; but he also can do excellent near-perfect work for people on a budget like me.
Great experience. C&S is a good example of a small business where the owner cares about his reputation. I got an estimate for fixing a dent including painting and blending a door with the rest of the car. I waited a month before taking the car in. The work was completed in the time quoted and the price was exactly what was quoted as well. The owner does the estimates and checks the car out with you explaining that they remove the rubber around the windows to paint. He shows you that all is replaced OK and the windows work. In addition, they buffed the entire car and actually called someone out to finish a place that was missed. They also put touch up on any edges where the paint was worn. The car looks great and there were no surprises. I am very happy with the result and recommend their services.
I took my car there because of the dent caused by a small accident that morning. I did not want to spend more than 100 dollars on fixing the dent. However, they told me it will cost me 600 dollars to fix the dent by replacing the bumper. After knowing that I only want to pay 50-100 dollars for the dent, the mechanic fix the dent by pushing from inside and the dent was 85% fixed. The mechanic even told me a place where I can pay 250 dollars to get it fixed by a less professional way. After a few hours, I became calmer with the newly caused damage. I decided not to pay for the dent. Therefore, I really appreicate that the mechanic fixed my car dent by hand without charging me anything.
