Beautiful Restoration, 4/30/2015

After visiting several classic car restoration shops, I selected express body service to perform a total exterior restoration on my 65 Mustang. Jim and the team performed a very through review of... the work that should be performed and made several helpful suggestions. I selected them for their professional and very friendly attitude, their demonstrated knowledge of early mustangs, the excellent work in progress they were able to show on other projects, and the great value they were able to provide with their quote. The car was stripped down to bare metal and covered with a nice epoxy primer. Both quarter panels and the tail light panel were replaced with Ford NOS parts. All the glass and weather stripping were also replaced. The car was painted black with ghost stripes and came out laser straight. No waves and the finish is like glass. Body panel gaps are perfect. They also did tremendous work on the fiberglass hood. No waves and it is as straight as the original metal hood. Total project took about three months and came in on time and on budget. Car was always available for review and feedback and Jim provided plenty of photos via email of the work in progress. Multiple paint samples were created to get just the look that I wanted for the stripes. The final result exceeded my expectations and once again I have a beautiful Mustang (have owned for 37 years). Thanks!

Perfect Service in Unbelievable Price

Jim and his team did a great job with my 2006 Infiniti G35. My car had damages and scratches 360 degrees before I brought it to Express Auto. They appraisal was lower than those of other shops. I handed my key and after one week I was surprised to see the result. It looked like a brand new car. Jim said before the repair that the car would look "infinitely better" upon finished. The result proved his honesty. And I would say it is really beyond my expectation. I am happy that Jim and his team saved my car. Moreover, they cleaned up the inside of the car for a bonus, which I did appreciate. You will not go wrong with Express Auto.

Extremely Satisfied

The team at E.A.B. was extremely helpful in getting my vehicle repaired. I especially appreciated Jeff going over and above to accommodate my travel schedule and getting my repairs completed on a tight timeline. Knowledgeable, honest with excellent service, quality, and price. That's the recipe for success, and I am very pleased and highly recommend your business. Thank You! George

A great experience and excellent value!

My daughter busted up the front end of her car and has to pay for the repairs herself. For our first estimate, Jim carefully analyzed what needed to be replaced and was able to find parts to help keep the price down. We went to one other place for a comparison estimate and they wanted to replace anything/everything possible and take 2+ weeks to do the repairs. We happily returned to Express Auto Body where they took only days to complete the repairs, kept to the estimate, and the car now certainly looks better than before the accident. If my family cars/trucks need any body work, I am headed to only one place -- Express Auto Body Service! Thanks Jim and Team!!!

Helped me keep my car

I had someone back into my paid off car in a parking lot. The insurance company sent me to *thier* shop and they told me it was totaled (by only a few hundred). That shop then told me there was nothing they could do. Dreading a new car payment, I then went to Express. They worked with me & found a way to do all of the needed repairs for a price that the insurance company would accept without taking my car. Thank You Express Auto!

great experience

I went for an estimate...came back 5 years later to have the job done: Jim recognized my face, did not increase the estimate, he did more, in half the time and at lower price compared to other dealers. He gave me a discount when I brought in the second car and had time for a nice chat in between all of this.

A great experience

The team at Express Auto Body fully restored my 1990 Miata. I had it sitting in my garage for 10 years and they performed a resurrection on it. The car is 21 years old and it looks brand new. I could not be happier. They went the exra mile. They even painted my rims and fixed the luggage rack. Top notch! I was so pleased I brought my wife's 1991 Accord in for some damage to the front quarter panel. They fixed up the panel and other issues on the whole car. It looks great. I reccommend them without question. Thanks for the great service and awesome end results. Pete...

Lots of Little Flaws in the Paint

One daughter backed into the other daughters car in the driveway (2008 Civic). Needed a new bumper, fender, and headlight. They used OEM parts, had it done in 4 days, and did it for $800 less than the next best estimate ($1500 cash) but if you look real close they're lots of little flaws (dust?) in the paint.

Hi John, we apologize if there are any imperfections in the clear coat applied to your car. This is the first we have heard of this issue, and would welcome the opportunity to correct them. This should be easily corrected with some light sanding and buffing.

Excellent service and repair

I brought my vehicle in to have some body damage repaired and it was a great experience. During the estimating process Jim explained things thoroughly so that I would have an understanding of what would work best to do a good job and save me money at the same time. The work that was done on my Grand Marquis was top notch. Thanks very much. Jeff k

Fantastic Value

Was looking to get some body work done on my 2004 Murano on my dime. Jim Gebhardt recommended that we purchase an after market grille because they were much less expensive than prices by Nissan. Saved $150. The rear bumper was redone - had been hit twice. The color match was unbelievable. Quality workmanship. Jim suggested that we put a rubber step up mat on the top of the bumper to further protect the surface from scratches. Great idea and very inexpensive. The best detailing job I have ever seen. I'm now driving at seven year old car that looks brand new at a 35% savings over other estimates. Need quality work where they really take care of their customers? Go to Express Auto Body and tell them Ron sent you.
