Default Maaco Collision Repair Centers

Im going to be getting my truck fixed from an accident and im trying to decide where to take it. So far Maaco has impressed me the most. Do they normally do good work? Im just having the bumper replaced and then they are going to put it on a frame machine and straighten the bumper brackets. They said it is a 3 to 4 day job. But I just want to hear some feedback from people on they're experiences at Maaco centers if they've been.

My sister had an 01 Stratus driver door straightened and repainted after the factory paint faded in the sun at Maaco, and they did a great job.

IMHO it really depends on the employees themselves. Like anything else, some do good work and some just try to get by. I lucked out and found a small body shop that did excellent work and had been in business for years and years where they don't depend on getting them in and getting them out quickly as some larger shops do. Ask to look at some of their completed work and asked for some previous customers and check with them to see how their work turned out.

I took a car to a maaco once but they didn't do a good job. But it all depends on the shop and there workers

Yea, I called the Maaco I wanted to use, but the lady wanted me to pay for parts first. I was getting ready to leave and I told my dad and he got pissed that they wanted me to pay for the parts first. He said they were trying to take advantage of me because they im only 19. But whatever, him and the lady had it out on the phone and she started to go on about policies so I said to heck with it. I went to a local place instead. They were far nicer on the phone. LOL they even offered me a ride home, I don't know too many places that do that. Even though they are 200 more dollars than Maaco estimated, I think they're service will be better. I guess when it comes to stuff like this, try to go with a local place.
