I recently had the horrible experience of finding that my car had been hit while I shopped at the mall. It was devastating since the guilty party had already fled the scene. As a long-time Geico policy member, I asked them to recommend a body shop and I was sent to 101 Auto Body and Paint . They were excellent; it was such a smooth sail. The employees were very courteous and helpful. Singh , the manager, oversaw the work done to my car, he was honest, professional and very reassuring; he made sure that every detail was taken care of. They truly provide top quality work. I was more than satisfied and would highly recommend anyone who needs auto repair work to visit 101 Auto Body and paint. My car looked like new when I picked it up, I couldn't believe it, I am eternally grateful. If I ever need any repairs done in the future, I know I can count on them to provide exceptional work. I have been telling everyone about this place.Also free towing
Singh , who owns the shop, is knowledgeable and friendly. He came highly recommended by Lee (of Lee's Auto Repair, also in Southie) and I am very happy I took my car to him! Also, it doesn't hurt that he's in walking distance since I didn't pay to get a rental car rider in my insurance. After a car slammed into our passenger door, I realized we were going to need to get that sucker fixed so we could open the window. Singh took a look and gave me an estimate, even showing me where in the pricing book his estimates came from. He gave me suggestions for how to keep the repairs cheaper, then asked me to consider using my insurance to pay for the repair. He knew my insurance company and the agent they would use to give the estimate and that made things really easy - I just submitted my claim and in 2 weeks I have a new door. My car is not in the best shape otherwise, and Victor generously buffed out some of the scratches in the car and gave me advice on how to make the scratches less noticeable. Overall, it was a good experience, I feel like he treated me fairly and honestly, and my car looks great - cleaned inside and out to .
Highly recommend 101 Auto Body Shop. My car was involved in a hit and run accident and needless to say I was overwhelmed with the prospect of looking for someone to repair the damage and dealing with the car insurance company. Well, what could have been such a overwhelming experience ending up being a walk in the park. Singh explained everything to me, called the insurance when there was further damage, contacted the rental agency to arrange a rental and pick up from his location and delivered my car on time and so clean, it reminded me of when it was new. He also touched up some scratches that were unrelated to the accident. The experience was great. He is very respectful and well mannered and the entire process couldnt have been easier. I highly recommend them .
I have recently had my car repaired by 101 Auto Body and I am really impressed by the work they have done. My car had been in an accident and the door was completely smashed in. I took my car into 101 Auto Body the next day and they totally took care of me. I was given a new rental car on the spot that was totally covered by insurance, didn't cost me a thing. They replaced my car door, took out all the other dings/dents from the accident, painted it, and made it like new in a very timely manner. The quality of the work is top notch, this place really makes sure things are done right. From body work to paint, this shop by far does the best work in Bay Area. The service is excellent and everything is made super convenient. I would recommend 101 Auto Body to anyone without hesitation.
I've never written a review , but the service and work at this place was that good, that I decided to write my first one. A car accident left my car with its front bumper ripped off. I called to schedule an appointment. They were able to take my car immediately. For a really reasonable price they made my car look better than it did even before the crash. They buffed out tire marks, popped out dents and touched up scratches, as well as reattaching my front bumper. AND as a bonus, they cleaned my car! Inside and out! I was very happy with the result!
True story. I had just bought a new (at the time), 2010 Full size Range Rover, and I didn't have more than 1000 miles on the car before I got side-swiped coming off of 680 into Sanjose. The front quarter panel, as well as most of the front bumper were destroyed, and I was pretty upset to say the least. I called 101 auto Body & Paint on the advice of a good friend, and spoke to Paul. Paul didnt know me from a hole in the wall, but when I told him what had happened over the phone (I called them about 10 minutes after the accident), he told me to come on by so he could have a look. He shook my hand, looked at the damage, could see how upset I was, and told me, "no problem. I'll order the bumper and panel, paint them in one day, and have you come by that afternoon, and we'll put it back together." 4 days later, I picked up my truck, and it was as good as new. Factory replacement parts, worked directly with the adjuster for me, and handled everything like true pros.
Pros: Great customer service, incredible work, honest, friendly
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about 101 Auto body & paint Sanjose. They did an absolutely immaculate job reparing my Jeep Grand Cherokee (which sustained extensive rear/tailgate damage after someone backed into me in a parking lot). Singh was especially helpful in his assistance dealing with my insurance company and the rental coverage on my policy. Victor was also a great help, and all staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I was so pleased to get my beloved Jeep back in such a timely fashion, and even more happy when the car had been washed and vacuumed. I will hopefully not be in another accident in Bay area, but if I am, I will definitely go back to 101 autobody shop.
They're SOOO GREAT! I was in an accident and Geico sent my car to 101 Auto Body And Paint Sanjose. They are all very friendly and professional! They called frequently to update me on my car, and got it done quickly as promised, considering the damage. Having an accident is HORRIBLE, but Geico and 101 Auto Body And Paint made it so much easier than I could have imagined! Thank you so much! My car is Beautiful
101 Auto Body & Paint Saved me $$$$
I am so happy to have found 101 Auto Body & Paint! I am a young woman who had a hard time finding a shop I could trust and wouldn't rip me off because I was female! I had been to one place that gave me a $4200 estimate for something I knew shouldn't cost near that. I then took my car to 101 Auto Body & Paint and was out the door for less than $3500. They are extremely reasonable and honest. I was completely satisfied with my service and have taken my car back for several things since. One great perk - if you call ahead they will give you a ride to work or home
101 Auto Body is the only place I go to get my car fixed. It is the only place I recommend to my friends and family as well. It is very rare to find an auto repair shop where you can be comfortable just dropping your car off and letting them fix your car but my experiences with them has built this comfort level for me and I am here to assure you that not only will they do the job perfectly, but they will do only what is necessary and be completely up front and honest with you what you need and don't need. I highly recommend them. I came across 101 Auto Body two years ago when I was new in town and needed to get my car fixed. I called the Lexus dealership to get estimates for my IS300 and I ended up asking when I can pick up my car and they said it will take a while because they don't fix damaged cars at the dealership, they send them to 101 Auto Body to get repaired. So I figured I would get it fixed straight at the source to save some time
After nearly totalling my car, I was referred to 101 Auto Body Paint and decided to give it a try. They did an amazing job; my car came back looking and performing like it had never been in an accident. You couldn't ask for friendlier, more straight-talking service. I was recently in another (much smaller) accident and took my car back to 101 Auto Body Paint. Singh consulted me regarding how I wanted the repairs done, and again, the car came back looking amazing. In fact, it looked even better than before the accident - they took care of some dings and scratches that weren't even part of the original estimate at no additional cost! I really can't imagine a more positive car repair experience, and if I ever need repairs again I know exactly where I'm going.
