This review is for the Bradenton, Fl Maaco shop, which we hired in August, 2013 to paint my husband's 1999 Tacoma. When I called Maaco, what impressed me right away was how polite their manager, Marv, was over the phone. I was originally going to just paint the hood and the roof, which had faded a bit. I felt so comfortable speaking with Marv, however, that I decided to paint the whole truck, and fix a few minor dings at the same time. The price he quoted me was close to what the other shops wanted just to paint the hood and top. My decision was mostly made, however, by Marv's professional and friendly manor. He was just as polite and nice in person-- really a genuine pleasure to do business with. If you have kids, bring them to the shop with you, and he will introduce them to the stray bunnies he lovingly cares for in the shop's yard. The truck was finished on schedule, but when we picked it up there was a bit of overspray on the top. I can see how it had been missed, but my husband saw it right away as he is quite tall and has a sharp eye. We brought it back the next day, and Marv had it fixed, with no charge of course. What matters to me is not that it wasn't perfect the first time, but that the oversight was promptly corrected with a smile. I think you can trust them with your business, and to make sure you are ultimately happy. Our truck now looks quite nice, and the total price for the paint job with dent repair was just under 1,000.00. We consider it a very good deal and would do it over again. Thank you, Marv, for being a pleasure to do business with.
Was referred to Ben by Dirks Auto also in Bradenton, both provide unsurpassed service and friendship. From Michigan we called Ben and discussed the repairs, took it in for his appraisal, and left it in November with the understanding we would be back the first week of January. Everything, and more was done to more than expectations. Ben worked with the insurance as he discovered more damage than Gerber originally quoted. Have received numerous compliments on my 13 year old truck, many thinking I bought a new one. Bens collision should be the last place you call on, you will be extremely satisfied. Once you deal with Ben and Gloria, it will be the only place you will ever want your vehicle serviced.
I had a accident with my car i was lost as where to go for repairs. This is my first accident in all my years of driving. Someone told me to go see chris at chris body shop. They said he was new to the area and was a good body man. So i called the shop and took my car for repair. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. He showed me some of his work and offered to give me a ride to my house when i dropped my car off for the repairs. When i returned to pick my car up it looked great. So if anyone out there is looking for a shop i say go see chris you will be glad you did!
