I had recently moved into the area, and needed to find a shop for maintenance and repair on my cars. I decided to try
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
, as they are conveniently located near my house. I found they do a wide range of automotive repair services, ranging from mechanical work to body repair. Vic Portincaso, the owner, is the person who you talk to in setting up the services. The atmosphere was very friendly, and Vic seemed straightforward in his recommendations on what repairs were needed. They conduct a multipoint inspection of each vehicle, based on printed checklist. They give you the checklist and make recommendations for correcting any problems. In my case the front brake pads on one of the vehicles was below minimum, so I added that to the service. They completed the repairs when promised. I thought their prices were competitive and a bit lower than what I have paid previously in other shops. At this point, I have no reason to doubt the quality of the work done, and I plan to continue servicing my cars at

We took the car to CBW and after examining the damage.
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
explained that the entire bumper did not need replacement, only the damaged corner piece on the driver's side. He told us exactly which replacement to buy and told us if we would purchase it from our Toyota dealer, he would replace it at NO CHARGE.
We did that, took the car and the part to CBW the next day and they had the work done in 15 minutes at NO CHARGE!
Hopeful that we don't require any further body work, but if we do, CBW will definitely get our business and our recommendations to friends.

I was in a car accident earlier this summer, where the front of my BMW X3 was completely damaged… the bumper was ripped off, the light was smashed, all the parking sensors were messed up (there are a million other things that were destroyed but I’m not even going to try to pretend I’m technical - see attached picture for the visual). The guys at
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
were amazing from beginning to end. This was a big job and thus required several visits to the shop from insurance (it ended up being close to $12K in damage so they couldn’t just approve it over the phone) but they coordinated everything seamlessly. We didn’t end up using a rental in the meantime but they could have helped us with that. All in all, it took about a month to complete all the repairs (largely due to scheduling issues and dealing with insurance company). I got an unprompted weekly call from the shop providing me with progress updates, but they encouraged to call in any time if I had any questions or wanted an update in between the weekly calls.

was the one that worked on it and every time I called, he was really on top of where things stood. When the car was ready, they dropped it off at my place (awesome!). It looked brand new!!! (it was almost brand new prior to the accident) - you would never know it was ever in an accident and a bad one at that. They even cleaned the inside of the car so it had a new car smell. I was very impressed! It just needed another realignment test but the BMW dealership was booked for 2 weeks out. The car was safe to drive at that point so we used it until then, but then the

guys came to my place on the day of the appointment, picked up my car, drove it to the dealership, had all the tests completed and then dropped it off at my place again. I could not have asked for a better service. Everyone was extremely friendly and very professional. We’ve had the car back from the shop for over 2 months now and it drives perfectly. I hope to never use their services again, but I would highly recommend the shop to anyone!

We called around and there aren't too many places that repair rust.
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
, the owner, looked at the car and identified 2 spots that needed rust repair. He talked about the process and how he would match the paint.
We left it for about 3 days while they repaired and painted the areas. The repairs look perfect, and the paint match was incredible. We had a kind of baby blue metallic and you can't tell where the repainting was done.

is very personable.

I finally decided to repair my front and rear bumpers. It turned out to only cost slightly more to replace them so that is what I decided to do. The work was done in two days and my car looks brand new again. I am quite pleased with the results.

This extremely capable shop repaired the collision damage to my 2012 vehicle to where it is like new again. They have the ability to do the job in a way that other shop could only wish. While in repair, you may view the progress online and actually see photos of the repairs. This is a very professional operation.

It's been over a month and I've not heard a thing. I had the work done elsewhere and was thrilled with the response I received from that company.

I was pretty unhappy with the whole thing. I had an appointment to bring my car in at 0900 for hail damage repair. I waited for about 30 minutes until someone came to look over my car. No biggie. 7 days later (on the 9th) I received a phone call saying my car would be done on the 12th (Friday). I went to pick it up and discovered that they repaired about $1000 more in supplemental repairs and were waiting for the approval from my insurance. Even though my car was ready to go, I would not be able to pick it up that day. We also found a
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
they missed and they said they would fix it. Monday evening I called to find out the status of the car. The receptionist (who was very scattered during every single interaction) said my car is ready but can't be picked up until approval from the insurance. I called the insurance to get the status. Insurance said they received the supplemental repairs after the repairs were done and it's still waiting for approval. Tuesday I called. Same status Wednesday I called and said I wanted my car. I was told (over speaker phone) that I had 2 options, that either I can pay for the additional repairs that neither I nor my insurance approved, or I can wait until the approval. I was angry, he was stubborn, at one point he laughed at me, lets just say the phone call wasn't pleasant. After a few hours of back and forths with the insurance and the business, I was told the approval went through and I was able to get my car. I went back to get my car, was waiting in the waiting area, saw an employee pop his head in to see what I looked like- (it was obvious)- just to find out that the

they missed was still not fixed and I could either take the car home with the
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
or leave it to get it fixed. I chose to take it home. They said they would get an independent mobile service to come within a week or so to take the
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
out. Within 10 minutes, I got a call from the mobile guy who was super nice and met me at my house to fix the last
New Haven Collision Repair Provider Name Locked
. Long story short- the business already received the original estimate check from the insurance, and was confident in the insurance enough to complete unapproved repairs, but not confident to give me my vehicle. They were okay with dragging me along, making me wait 5 additional days for the actual word of "approval". P*** poor service. I had high hopes from all the reviews. I'm pretty disappointed.

kept me posted on the progress and I had the car back the next day! I was very pleased. They were professional and very nice. I strongly recommend!
