    From Our Customers…

    G W & Son Auto Body did an excellent job on my Tesla Model S. They made sure I dropped it off with my charger and over the time they had it they charged it twice. I kept an eye on the battery because of other Tesla reviews, but they never let it fall below 100 miles. My insurance company was being very difficult through the whole process but Gary handled everything for me. I honestly can’t tell it was in an accident. they communicated throughout the whole process so I was never left out if the loop.

    This is the best body shop in town. If you have a specialty car it may be the only one certified for you. But even with standard cars they provide the best restoration service I’ve experienced. It often takes a little longer with their repairs. I think because they are meticulous. And, they have even saved me money and time on a repair the insurance’s “preferred” shop didn’t realize was less severe. I was able to pay out of pocket and save my deductible. Great staff. I’ve been using them for 15 years and will keep coming back.

    Top of the line family and crew. They repaired my Jaguar to top condition after a minor scrape up where someone was allowed to operate a vehicle without any sense. Unfortunately, it happens; and if it does happen you can count on an honest evaluation and top quality workmanship from Gary & the crew at GW & Son Auto Body Shop. We’re back for more already ugh.
