Hail Damage

Every time a hail storm hits this area or overwhelms the shops in the twin cities area, we repair hail damage, the right way. Sometimes that means replacing parts.

Paint Scratches & Paint Failure

Paint on newer cars does last much longer than it ever has in the past but it still seems to get damaged somehow. The stories are endless. We can repair damaged paint, using the same materials as the factory did, so you can't tell it was ever damaged!


We will negotiate a fair insurance settelment with the adjuster for you to return your vehicle to it's pre-accident condition. Sometimes insurance companies don't want to replace parts. We will do everything neccessary to argue to restore your vehicle. That's part of the job, making sure a responsible party pays the correct amount to repair your vehicle to it's pre-accident condition or as close as is possible.


Cost of repairing your vehicle depends on the vehicle itself (how damaged, what parts need replaced, how long it will take, etc.) Your repair cost is typically composed of the cost of our time and the cost of the materials necessary to do the job. Currently, our shop rate is set at $50/hour ($65/hour for mechanical work and frame repair). Come in to the shop and we'll be able to give you a more accurate estimate of your repair cost.
