Saved a lot of time and no hassle getting the estimate. Quick and Responsive. Pricing was very reasonable. The results were outstanding. The dents are gone! Very professional and friendly. Great service and would highly recommend.

Drove to
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
to obtain estimate only to find out that you need an appointment to get an estimate. I have l lived in 4 different states and have never been told by a garage that I needed an appointment for an estimate, so I thought that was strange. I made the appointment and came back. The estimator was very nice, but told me that not only would he need to paint the quarter panel and the area above it and above the windows (this was all one continuous piece...so it was understandable that the paint could not be feathered in), but he would have to paint the adjacent door as well because it is too hard to match silver paint. So I asked him if he painted the door, wouldn't he have to paint the door in front of it, as well as the front fender , and the hood....etc etc, etc, because all those would be hard to match as well. He said no, because they could "blend in" the paint on the door. Now, I may be a woman, but I know my way around cars thanks to helping my husband rebuild cars since we started dating 35 years ago. This did not seem right to me and I couldn't help thinking I was taken advantage of. I can't speak to the quality of work that this establishment does as I did not have them do the work, but I can say that neither of my other 2 estimates thought it was necessary to paint the adjacent door. This did not have the "family owned business" that was not like a "big chain" feel at all. In addition, their estimate was well above the other two.

This was a serious problem for me and I was dreading getting it fixed. I was expecting a cost of $500 plus. Thank goodness for Angies List and

.

(the owner) was very helpful and said he believed he could fix it with fasteners, screws and bolts, which he promptly did. The fee was more than reasonable.

On 8/14/14 I was rear-ended while waiting at a red light. I called
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
Accident Repair and
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
asked me to bring the car right in.
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
inspected the car and said it wasn't safe to drive because the
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
wouldn't close and all safety measures put in place had been compromised by the accident. Since I had an insurance claim number from the other driver,
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
arranged a rental car for me. The personnel at
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
Accident worked with the insurance agency and I never had to lift a finger. I really appreciated it because I was shaken up and hurting from the accident and it was so nice that they took care of me. The projected date of completion was 9/8/14, but they were able to finish the repairs and I received the car back on 8/28/14. They not only repaired the damage from the accident, but they also cleaned the inside of my car. Now that is service!
FYI: The $6,000 cost of service was paid by the other driver's insurance company.

30 days to complete a repair is what they quote after my truck torn down so have no choice but let them finish! Want crazy prices to fix other stuff after getting almost 11k from insurance! I've got to say so far I would tell everyone to stay away from this place! I would never recommend, find a smaller shop that will take care of you versus this place! I will be as vocal and tell everyone I know to not use this place is all I can say. Better believe after I pick up truck having it looked over too! Repair better be perfect

came to my house and repaired a pretty bad
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
on right rear panel of my white car. It was in the middle of the panel, which is good, but was on the part where there is a design crease in the car, which is not good. There were also dark scrapes of paint or something on the

. He did a wonderful job on the
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
! I can't even tell it had been there. And the most surprising thing of all is that he was able to
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
those paint scrapes off, as well! I highly recommend him. I have some small dents on the driver's door (from shopping carts or opening doors), which I will be calling him back out to fix. Please be aware that he's a small business in his truck, and he gets TONS of queries. You may have to play tag with him on the phone a couple of times to arrange a time, unlike with a big business that has telephone staff. But it's worth it. I've hired small businesses a number of times for jobs at my house, and it's always that way. It was also helpful to send him pics of my
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
from different
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
, so he could see what it was, for estimate or time to repair or equipment he'd need.

After giving me a quote based on some photos I emailed, we met in the parking lot of a local coffee shop. He set to work immediately, and I watched. He had estimated he might remove 85% of the
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
but ended up removing at least 95% of the
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
in the door and all of the
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
in the hood. The repair was truly amazing (and I speak as someone who used to work in an auto body shop, albeit a long time ago). The charge for the work was just what
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
estimated.

I recently sold my service business but kept one of my newer fleet trucks. The F-150 had text lettering on the tailgate and both sides. I tried to remove the vinyl decals myself by peeling it off. I could do it, but a single word took almost an hour.
I called a couple of sign companies and some performed the service and some did not. One that did said I had to drop off the vehicle for 2-4 hours and the cost was $275.
I googled the service and
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
's company
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
came up. I called and he answered right away and
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
he could do it in a couple of days. He said it would look like new and cost $125. I scheduled the work for 9;00 A. M. on the Tuesday after Labor Day.
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
showed up early and asked to move my truck out to the street so if there was any mess from the removal it would not fall on my driveway.
Chaplin Auto Repair Provider Name Locked
was done in about 90 minutes and the truck looked like new. It looked like a totally different truck.
The price was less than half of the sign company and he came to me and did a great job. I'm not sure I'll need his service in the future, but if I do, I will defintely call him and/or refer him to anyone that needs that kind of work done.
