Should one decide to use the shop services this is a sign of things to come? The job to be done to my vehicle was relatively a simple. They had to change out and paint a rear bumper and take care of minor dings the car had- offered by Mr Robert Sherman as perk? Overall, spanning a period of 5 months it took 5 weeks for the job to be completed. The first time the job took 3 ½ weeks. The work was so pitiful Mr Sherman agreed to do the job over but since he never returned calls to reschedule the work the insurance became involved because the shop billed for parts they never changed (insurance fraud). Then it took another week and a half to do an acceptable job- still lines don’t match up parts missing. Since I elected the Shop I incurred 800.00$ in overage of rental fees. There is no Prestige in this Shop of horrors.

Had it towed to 136 Auto for inspection and to see if I could drive it home. Bobby Sherman and Randy Gonzalez promptly inspected and proposed repairs promising superior repairs and excellent paint job to complete. They delivered. Paint match is exceptional. Looks like new. Repairs were only held up by parts availability. I was kept informed and adjusted my schedule to delivery dates. I highly recommend this shop.

There was almost $4000 damage to the rear bumper, rear RHS light, and quarter panel in an accident. Some misalignment on the trunk door. Marcell assured me that 2 or 3 weeks, and it would look like new! When the car was completed I was very happy. The welds were seamless, the paint job was spectacular (silver), and the car drives beautifully. One minor nit -- the original bumper protectors behind the rear wheels were missing (probably parts were unavailable), but I can live with that. So, 4 1/2 stars might be considered, but I will call it 5 stars. The car was beautifully cleaned when it was returned. I am very happy with their work. It took a little longer, but, Marcell told me that the first quarter panel ordered was not up to standards. I really appreciate that they strive for quality in their work.
