My entire experience with Autobody & More was top notch! Bryan had excellent communication through the entire process of repairing my van and put my mind at ease taking care of all the ends and outs. Jim, the painter, is simply the best! I highly recommend Autobody & More, and would not go to anyone else. They really are perfection!!!!!!

Brian is amazing! He dealt with the insurance company 100%. He picked up our car and dropped it off when he said would. He even made the insurance company pay for damage that they didn’t originally put in the estimate. He kept in contact with me to make sure I knew my car was a top priority. I almost took it to G and C but heard awful things about it and found out later of all the hidden costs I would have been charged! Brian is an honest guy. He will take care of you and your car with highest priority. Don’t get ripped off! Take it to Auto Body and More!!!

Took my 2004 Mustang GT in for an unfortunate rear fender. Bryan bent over backwards for me, got me set up in a rental and repaired the car and basically made it better than when I brought it in.

I was recommended this shop by another past customer of Bryan’s and am I glad I took it in. Auto Body and More is exactly that…..with the “More” being courteous and prompt attention. I can be a bit of a pain in the butt, calling every few days to check on my “baby” and Bryan never lost patience with me.

Highly recommended if you want it fixed right the first time.

Thank you Auto Body and More!!!

This was a referral from a friend and what a great friend. Autobody & More did an excellent job. My car looks like it did when I bought it 8 years ago. I forgot what the paint used to look like and I wash and wax my car all of the time. I had so many rock dings on the hood and bumper. Also, they pulled out all of the small door ding dents.
I would definitely recommend!! Any time in the future I need auto body repair, I am there. I think I might even have them paint my bike, cuz they do that too.

Is not just an auto body shop or a collision repair center, they also do custom graphics and a painting friendly environment. I have been a repeat customer since 2002 and been extremely happy with Bryan Kinney and his crew. The atmosphere and customer service is great and glad to do business with Auto Body and More in the future.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Bryan and Kristin, owners of ABM. After getting in a little fender bender, my fault, no damage to my car, but a dent in a nice little sporty Mercedes. Bryan worked with me so I could afford to pay out of pocket.

Since the first accident my car was hit in a parking lot, needless to say there was no note left on my vehicle. There was no question as to where I was going to take my car. They fixed the parking lot dent and went over and beyond to my surprise and fixed my bad bumper. It was quite beautiful.

You’re treated with respect and will be kept well informed.

I highly recommend this establishment. You’ll bring you vehicle in to get repaired and you’ll leave with a beautiful car and new friends.

If you are looking for a body shop to get your car done as quickly as possible and get it back to you, this is not the shop for you. This is the body shop that will treat your car like it is your own. They will spend the time to make sure your car looks better than it did before you had your accident. I have dealt with this shop twice and I absolutely love this shop. The people are friendly and their work is great. I am very happy I found this body shop. You have a customer for life. Thank you!!!! You guys are awesome!

What are “direct repair programs” DRP

On April 21, 2014, in Blogs, by Administrator

I found this article very interesting:

 

A direct repair program is the general name used to describe insurance companies’ circles of collision repairers willing to sign an agreement with an insurer agreeing to adhere to the insurer’s “guidelines” setting parameters and limitations on the type of repair you will receive in exchange for the insurer referring you to them.
Unlike in the health insurance arena, your premium for auto insurance is not based on your agreement to patronize an auto repair equivalent to a health maintenance organization (“HMO”).  It’s like you paid your premium to go to any collision repair shop you choose, but now the insurer is trying to force you into using one of its HMO shops.  If your insurer succeeds in convincing you to utilize a “DRP” shop, it is able to exercise more control over the repair you actually receive.  That control is about saving the insurer money, not about ensuring you receive the best possible repair.  In fact, some of those repairs coming out of insurer “preferred” shops are downright dangerous and render the vehicle unsafe to drive.  That is because the shop is trying to please the insurer by keeping costs down, and sometimes the only way it can make money is to skimp on your repairs.

That doesn’t mean that all collision facilities participating in insurer DRP programs do poor work, or that all non-DRP shops do great work.  What it does mean is that the shops participating in the DRP programs are far more likely to think of the insurer as the customer rather than you and more likely to give the insurer what it wants — a cheap repair — rather than what you want — a safe and proper repair.

Also of concern is that the insurer forces the repair shop to indemnify it for claims made against it about your vehicle repair.  This can put the repairer’s own garage insurance at risk and your ability to recover against the shop if something goes wrong.

This shop came recommended to us from a local detail shop.  My wife’s Corvette was side swiped and the insurance company recommended a shop that we were not impressed with after the estimate was done which took two weeks.  Anyways, we wanted the best painter available and to our amazement they did an awesome job on her Corvette.  They blended the paint beautifully and the car looks 100% better than before.  Brian, the owenr, was awesome to deal with and I would trust them with ;any repair!!   Great experience.  Tom & Jenn

My experience with Auto Body and More was out of this world. Being in customer service myself, I have high expectations of what good service means. From the moment that I spoke with them I had a good feeling, and I was comfortable leaving my prized possession in their hands. When I came to pick up my car I literally choked up and had to fight back tears of joy. My baby looked like new and I have Brian and his team to thank for that. I would tell anyone willing to listen go to this shop if your in  need of auto repairs; the body work is not only top notch so is the customer service.
