No company, especially a car repair company gets 34 perfect, 5 star reviews, NO ONE !
These guys are very computer literate, and I'll guarantee you, if every ip address and the person behind the computer was found, many would either be employees or friends of Kudzu. They wouldn't be the first company that pumped up their ratings via bogus reviews. This is common on the internet folks - don't believe their hype!
Their estimates are at the very top of the range as well.
They are expensive ! When you charge the most, you'll have some backlash - especially on the internet!
If they find a way to take this review down, that proves it.

I took my BMW to Kongs to have auto body work done. I had two separate jobs that needed to be done. One that was being taken care of by insurance and I had my paperwork from the insurance company which set the amount they would pay. Kong did not try to get a penny more. The second job was coming out of my pocket and he cut me a big break on that one. As it turned out, because they ended up keeping the car for an extra two days, he did not charge me for the second job. He said it was on him for the inconvenience. The work done was excellent and getting him on the phone was never a problem. He has gained a loyal customer!

Went to Kong's for the first time last year after reading the reviews. Recently came back again for major work. I will only take my vehicle here. Great customer service, fair pricing, and great work! Forget Classic Collision or anyplace else for that matter. Rated five stars for a reason!

I am usually very nervous about everything that has to do with cars. I went to Kongs after doing some research on Atlanta body shops. They were polite, upfront, and did an excellent job on my bumper. I left extremely relieved knowing I had found a body shop in town that I completely trust.
A gentleman backed into my car by accident and left his number in a note so he could pay for it; in appreciation for his kindness I wanted to get the cheapest estimates I could. I took my car to Kong's Body Shop, Your Auto Body Shop, Buckhead Collision, and Collision Works after reading good reviews about all of them. Kong's was the second cheapest estimate (and the fastest), but Kong understood the situation, encouraged me to get other estimates, and offered to work with the gentleman on the price. After the gentleman decided to go through insurance (making the individual estimates irrelevant), I chose to use Kong's Auto Body Shop because I had such a good feeling about it. There was never any attempt to hustle me or tell me about complicated 'necessary' extra tasks, it was very straightforward.
I could not be happier. My car is now perfectly fixed, and Kong ALSO repaired something else I told him about- my gas cable broke during the cold snap, and had to be replaced- for free!! He didn't even charge me for the new cable! Moreover, since I could not make it to the auto body in time to return the rental the day the car was ready, Kong told me to come the next day and if I had a hard time about the rental he would take care of it. In all of my dealings with Kong's Auto Body Shop, I was impressed by their laidback friendliness and painstaking honesty.
I had a dent on tail gate of my minivan and paint came off on the sides and front bumper. I hired a guy from craigslists and he asked 180 USD to remove dent and fix rest of the things. He messed up my van and made it worst. I took it to Kong's shop after reading excellent review about this guy. He told me that it costs 2700 USD to fix everything. I asked few of my friends if any one knew good body shop around down and I was told about this shop in Lithia Auto Service in Lithia Springs GA. He quoted me 900 USD and told me that he wouldn't negotiate. He did an excellent job and I'm amazed to see the quality of his work and couldn't thing of anything better. I would highly recommend this guy to any one. His contact number is 404-735-1483 and his name is Steve.

If you are looking for a trustworthy, competitively priced, high-quality auto body shop in the Atlanta area, look no further than Kong's body shop. I have used Kong's three times in the past 18 months and each time he has given be an incredibly competitive price and provided impeccable quality of workmanship. Most recently, I brought in a 2006 Nissan Altima that required some scratch removal before returning the leased car to Nissan. The original inspection from Nissan said that I would have to pay $700 if I returned the car in current condition (due to some scratches on the passenger side). I brought the car to Kong's and he was dissappointed that Nissan wanted to charge for what appeared to be minor scratches. He said that he could fix the scratches for a slightly cheaper rate than Nissan, but recommended that I don't actually fix the scratches, but rather just detail/buff them out. Another body shop might have taken this opportunity to make an additional $500-600, but Kong is a stand-up guy and he said he could buff out the scratches for $100. Not only that, he said that if Nissan did not reduce the damages, he would give me a refund on the $100! This is probably not a written policy, so I am not sure he would hold up this deal for anyone, but I think this experience exemplifies the type of trustworthy business that Kong is running. If you are curious, Nissan removed all charges related to those scratches, so Kong's saved me $600 out of $700 (approx 85% cost reduction).
As long as I am in Atlanta, I will never go to another body shop.

I used city search to find Kong's after visiitng several shops in the city. What I found at other shops was lack of customer service, interest and clear direction on what needed to be done to my car. I highly recommend Kong's. Why? He delivers what he says, repairs your car with care and perfection. When you have car damage, you want to be back in it as soon as possible and Kong's will make every effort to do so.
When the insurance adjuster is late or weather and other factors come into play be patient ! The finish product will be worth your wait, priced fairly. Kong and his staff are the most focused workers I have seen.
More than words can say, I have happy with the repair on my car ! !

Quality work, and very quick. I've had several reapir jobs done with them, and all of them have turned out perfect, even when I've given them almost no time to get it done. Work has been flawless, and the staff goes out of their way to make you happy. Highly recommended.
Big bonus - my favorite car wash is next door to the bodyshop!

I am new to the Atlanta area and was a bit skeptical about finding a decent auto body shop after getting in a minor fender bender. However, working with Kong's was a great experience from the start! His estimate was lower than all others I got, he made working with the insurance companies easy and took care of my rental car for me. He was honest and the work looks GREAT! I'll tell everyone I know to go to him!

Over the past 10 years + I?ve been in my fair share of fender benders. Since I first used Kong?s body shop I?ve shopped around but never found anyone that offered the level of quality in workmanship and timeliness that their company offers. If you want the job done right the first time, on time and on budget, I highly recommend them.

I had a great experience with Kong's Body Shop. The quote was far less than his competitors. He was direct and honest. The car ended up a few days taking longer to be ready than he had originally cited but there was a good reason for this; he was clear about explaining why and asked for our understanding. The car repair was done extremely well and the inside was immaculate when we went to pick up the car. We spoke with Kong himself all times we went into the shop. Overall it was a hassle free and easy experience, and in-town to boot. A real rare find. I would highly recommend this service.

I had a wonderful experience at Kong's. When I went to get my estimate I was seen very quickly by the owner, who inspected the car and drafted the estimate, WHICH WAS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN HIS COMPETITORS, himself. The entire trip took less than 15 minutes. He made a special trip back to his shop so I could drop off my car after work. He was always very prompt when returning calls and was very friendly over the phone. The total charge matched the estimate exactly. My car looks flawless and the work is guaranteed. To top off my great experience, when I went to pick up my car it was freshly washed INSIDE AND OUT! What great service. I will be recommending him to everyone I know. Keep up the good work!
I've lived in Atlanta for 12 years and unfortunately have been to a few body shops. Kong's is the best. I wish i would've known sooner. Professional, courteous, timely and quality workmanship at a good value. Kong's really cares about cars and I can confidently say that I highly recommend this shop. They know what they're doing and they care. Believe all the positive hype, it's true. I won't take my car anywhere else!
The only expectations I had with Kong's Body Shop was from the reviews I had read on CitySearch. They far exceeded those expectations. I had recently been in an auto accident, which was not my fault. They repaired my car for the appraised value, cleaned the car inside and out, and even shined the tires! The paint they used matches perfectly. It looks like a new car. This service reminds me of the service my Dad gave his customers when we ran his repair shop years ago. Personal and guaranteed. I will definitely use them again.

I had a 2000 Pontiac Trans Am that was backed into the rear quarter panel and pushed it in. Im very particular about my vehicles and who i trust to work on them. Especially something such as body/paint work. I was referred to Kong's by a friend who has had work done there. Just looking at some of the work he has done and i was sold. Car was in and out of the shop in no time! Paint matched PERFECTLY! You would have never known it had ever been dented. I will definitely be taking all my vehicles to Kong's from now on and would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone else. Whether its a Trans Am or a Ferrari....Kong's take pride in their work. Period.
