I had my car fixed by another shop (Virgil's) and twice back and they couldn't match the color, and then on the second try got closer but left the clear cote dull.
Star took a look and said that it had to be redone for both color and shine ... they absolutely nailed it! The owner (Pete) and Danny viewed my car with me in multiple light conditions to verify that the prior job was sub-par. Once I picked up the car, I spoke to the painter; he used 10 different mixes to get it just right!
I can't say enough good things - decide your shop carefully, and, hopefully my review will help you see that Star is IT!!

As a woman, I find it very difficult to find a repair shop that doesn't treat you like an idiot or over charge because you are a female and they assume you don't know what they are talking about. But I have to say I did find one at Star Auto Body. They explained the repair process to me, the price was reasonable and the work was excellent! You wouldn't know I ever wrecked my car! This is a rare find and if you are looking for an auto body shop, DON'T HESITATE to go to Star Auto Body you will not be dissapointed. The estimators don't act like used car salesman and they are so accomodating and friendly, Star even has a female estimator which is very refreshing to see! They even got me a discount on my rental car. Getting into a car accident is a stressful process but getting my car repaired was the least stressful part!

DO NOT USE this shop. I had an accident and was sent to this shop. They gave one estimate but by the time they were done the bill was over $1500 higher than they had said it would be to fix the damage.
Almost two years after the repair I bumped the bumper and you won't know I had done it except that the paint cracked and chipped off the bumper (a six inch patch). There is no damage or indent on the bumper except there is the big patch of paint missing and it is cracking and chipping off more and more every day. Went back to them after 3 different auto people told me it was a bad paint job where the paint was not properly sealed or that wouldn't have happened. They refused to fix it and claim this is what is supposed to happen when you put any kind of pressure on the bumper,
