A good auto body shop?

damaged car bumperKaitlin asks via Twitter:

I am in need of good auto body places in Albany. ... I just need to get my bumper repaired/replaced, rather than something mechanical, I suppose?

Got a suggestion for Kaitlin? Please share!

By the way: Here's our Capital Region Recommended Auto Mechanics list, if you haven't seen it before.

Comments

My mechanics recommended "Mark" at 371.2300... but that was a while ago. :) Also, I've still not fixed the big scrape on the side of my car, but I think it adds "Character" where Character = a big scrape, and the possibility some day, of rust. :|

Hackel's recommended this guy, so... I guess let that colour your decision :)

T.A.C.S. Auto Body in Glenmont. Nice guys, great service.

Just call Rick at Capital Auto 459 0099. He is honest and does great work. Anybody who has lived in Albany for a long time will know and vouch for him. He also does a auto talk show on weekends locally. People call in and he tells them the truth, he carries this over to his shop. I don't mess with anyone else anymore.

Kraft Ave off Central

H & V Collision on Central Ave.

I hit a deer a few days before the July 4th holiday one year and they had my car in immediately with the expectation that it wouldn't be done until after the holiday weekend. They called and checked-in with me throughout the process and the repairs. They were upfront and honest with my options -- and they even had the repair done before the holiday.

Colby on Third St. in Albany.

I had a good experience at Colby lately too. They worked with my insurance company on the price and the work was as good as new. They were recommended by Larry's Foreign Auto, who I find to be very trustworthy.

MAACO on Central Avenue across from the Honest Weight Food Co-op is great. Good service and prices!

I've also used H&V in Troy. They work very well with the insurance companies. They also have car rentals through Hertz available on site, which is normally covered through your insurance, which they take care of. They do a good job with the repairs, but they are very popular, so may not get to your car right away. Still, going through them is a very painless process.

Come to George's Collision. We've been in business for over 35 years. We are direct repair with most major insurance companies and will take your of your claim from start to finish. We also have loaner cars.

I was very negative about the road diet when it was announced but I really love it and am excited to see it continue all the way to Lark. I eat my words!
