My car suffered hail damage before a tree limb fell on it. I got three different quotes and chose BAP to replace a fender and an outside mirror, plus fix lots of dents and scratches. They were pleasant and professional, offered a great price, and did terrific work -- I swear I can't see where the hail dents were and the new fender paint is a perfect match. I had one issue with a replaced mirror, so I took it back to the shop. They ordered a new part and it's perfect now. I highly recommend them for quality, service, and price.

I will always look to BAP before going anywhere else in GA for big or small repairs. I used them first several years ago, and I had a strict budget for the work. They did excellent work for hundreds cheaper than 3 other places I got quotes. I just had a fender bender and I will be seeing them again after the New Year.

If you need repair on a newer car that just requires panel replacement and paint they may be ok. But, if you have an older car that needs real bodywork like panel straightening and repair then look elsewhere. It took them 2 monts on the first attempt to do 1 week of work and when they said it was done the paint was terrible. Runs, trash, holes, thin, overall worse than the old paint. Only took care of part of the repair before the paint job. Then it took them 4 more months to do it better the second time. It's not that they were not trying, they just did not know how the car was supposed to look. So why did they take the job in the first place then??? Who knows.

I brought in my Jaguar after minor bumper damage. I picked up the car from the shop on Friday and I noticed the backup bumper sensors were not working. They worked BEFORE I brought the car into the shop. I informed the manager (Mickey) and waited another hour as they attempted repair. Mickey stated that they couldn't fix and recommended I take the car to Jaguar dealer. I responded that this was fine, but who would cover the cost? After a long conversation/excuses by Mickey, he BEGRUDGINGLY offered to cover the cost of sensor repair, IF Jaguar found that the sensor error was caused by the accident and/or body shop. I could tell from Mickey's tone and body language that he wasn't going to cover anything, and just wanted to get me out of the shop. Over the weekend I called the insurance company and they agreed to cover sensor damage as a supplemental claim. Also over the weekend, the damaged sensor fell into the bumper, leaving a quarter sized hole. I took the car to Jaguar dealer on Monday. They assessed the damage at $600 and stated that the damage could have been caused by the accident or the body shop repair. I called Mickey and (no surprise) he denied ANY responsibility for fixing the sensor. He actually wanted me to bring my car by his shop AGAIN so he could look at the damaged sensor. I let the Jaguar dealership do the repair and filed a supplemental claim.

I have taken several cars to have repairs done at their body shop over the past 8 years. They do an excellent job. They may not be the cheapest in price but they are best in customer satification.

I took Nissan Kingcab for bodywork. Vehicle needed frame straightened and after repairs the frame was still bent. The bent frame was obvious and when picking up they stated it was the best they could do. I felt I wasted my money.

I have a 1994 Jeep grand cherokee. I work on my car myself I am a mechanic but not a body man so, I took my car to budget. First off i was over charged I needed a door replaced and repainted $1800. They took twice as long as they said.Finally I got my car back and was driving home then noticed a crack in my door panel so I called them back and told them and they said the door was already damaged which is a lie. Looking further at the door there were more cracks in the panel and to top it off the window when it rolls down it makes a noise like some thing is clicking .Also they stripped a screw and left it half way in . Icing on the cake with my windshield has a chip in it. which i just had replaced . This place was horrible do not go there. Scandalous. You even hae to pay in cash no checks after I payed the guy Mickey Beardslee sticks the money in his pocket pretty strange.

Customer was given a written estimate showing all charges before he handed me the keys and said "fix it". The bill was the same as the estimate. The door had to be special ordered, it took about a week to get. This vehicle has alot of other problems we were not paid to address. His door was about to fall off, or it probably would not have been fixed either.
I decided to try this shop after getting outlandish repaining estimates elsewhere.the beautiful paint job they did for me cost a fraction of my other quotes.
