Thank you for the wonderful repair job on our 2009 Toyota Camry
My husband and I were very pleased with the work that was done by Altoona Auto Body on our 2009 Camry. I had hit a cement post while backing out of a parking garage creating damage to the passenger's doors. I debated whether or not to fix the car, but knew that we intended to keep this car for several years and didn't want it to become rusted. After the repairs made by Altoona Auto Body shop, the car looks brand new. Additionally, Jim Hansen supplied us a vehicle to use while our car was in the shop and before the car was returned to us someone had totally cleaned the inside and outside of the car.
This is the third time I have used Altoona Auto Body shop and each time the company has exceeded my expectations. The first time I stopped at your shop was for a window on my 2002 Camry that wouldn't stay in place if I rolled the window down. Jim, the owner, looked at the situation, fixed it on the spot and charged me $35.00. That moment was never forgotten and I have since been back two other times. Each time generating a positive result and exceptional customer service.
It is small businesses such as your's that make my day. I would not expect that type of service from a dealer ship. I have two favorite shops in Altoona, Altoona Body Shop and McManus Car Repair. Neither has ever failed to identify the problem, correct the problem and charge a reasonable rate, and provide outstanding customer service.
