Scottys Body Shop, 59 University Avenue, Des Moines
11/23/13: 'Dr. Subba Dhanwada, Mercy Medical Center '
While I was coming from my work, an young student from DMACC tired to enter into my line on I-235 (from right line) and hit my passenger side of the front bumper. The Cadillac CTS passer side front bumper and the right front wheel were damaged. I maintain my car in good condition and was devastated with this incident and damage to my car. I was referred to Scotty's Body Shop for repairs. I must admit I did get two other estimates prior to my visit to Scotty's Body Shop. I was well received by Mr. Curtis Mayfield, the who in detail explained what he will do and much to my surprise their estimate was lower than the earlier two estimates I had obtained. Mr. Mayfiled, explained in detail what he will do as to the body work and which parts will be replaced and gave the time and date of delivery of my vehicle. They not only did the estimated repair work, but went ahead and repaired some small paint chips and dent on the side door with out additional charge. When my car was delivered it is hard to know that I had a damage, and it almost looked like car taken out of showroom. I have no hesitation to recomend Scotty's Body Shop and the people there are friendly, professional and very pleasant to deal with.

We hit a deer with our Yukon and had a ton of damage. Scott's arranged to tow the vehicle, worked with our insurance, and made the repairs in a very timely manner. The staff was professional and friendly. They made it very easy on us.

We, unfortunately have had the need to use Scotty's Body Shop twice in the last 90 days! My husbands F150 repair from a parking lot mishap and the repairs on my Ford Edge, my fault I tired to back oput of my garage with the back lift gate open, were completed and ready as promised right on time. Scotty's took care of everything for us. We drove in and they handed us the keys to the rental car! I did not have to spend hours on the phone dealing with insurance companies, setting up card rentals, etc. Scotty's did all the leg work for us. My husbands 10 year old truck looked brand new with a beautiful shiny finish. Our friends were asking if he had a new truck! GREAT WORK!

I obtained damage to my trunk from the security gate at work. I called a few places for an estimate but felt like they didn't want to take care of me, until I went to Scotty's. They were very detailed in explaining how it needed to be fixed, we even asked if they could take off the dealership sticker. They said they could get me in the following Monday (I saw them on Saturday). Tuesday they called me because I had not dropped off the car. I explained that I needed someone from work to follow me so I had a ride back. They told me there was no need to find someone...Scotty's took me back to work. I couldn't believe this "mom & pop" shop would even offer that. I was kept informed every step of the process by Louie and Curtis. I got my car back and it looks GREAT and without the dealership sticker. WooHoo!

The customer service at this shop is top notch. I will be telling everyone to go there.

I went to Scotty's to get my new van repaired after being in a bad accident. They made things very convenient and easy for me. The girls in the office did all the work for me as far as handling the claim and the rental. When I got my car back it looked better then when I first purchased it! I will refer everyone I know there!! THANKS SCOTTYS!!

I originally went to Scotty's after calling around all over town to fix my mother-in-laws car (I backed into it in my driveway, didn't know it was there!). Since her car was over ten years old and not in very good shape, I was really looking for the low cost provider. I continue to return to Scotty's because they have always done good work at a fair price. From significant damage on a brand new car (my fault!) to cheap make-do repairs to one of my kids "beaters", I am always happy with the outcome. I have some dings and scratches on my newest car and I am going there today to get an estimate. Thanks, Scotty's!!!

Pros: Everything but location

Cons: Location from the Western Suburbs is a pain to get to.

I've had the worst autobody collision repair on a car that I'v ever seen. They quoted me for a new front right fender panel for $280. They didn't even replace my panel but instead decided to give me a $100 discount and gave some lame excuse of why they could't discount me for the entire new panel that they were charging me for. The buffing and painting job was pittiful. On the left rear quarter panel, a small part of the metal (2 inches long and 1/16 wide in the middle of the panel which is 8 inches above the rear wheel well) was exposed but instead of fixing it they decided to put touch up paint on it. Also, I'm not sure if they even put primer on the metal before they painted. I mean that it was completely bare metal that was exposed. They didn't even try to align my headlights with that fender damage. They left it as is and gave some more lame excuse as too why it wasn't done. They also charged me for a wheel alignment but with all of this stuff that they're giving me I don't think they even did the wheel alignment. Out of the $2200 they charged me for, I would say they ripped me off about $1200 worth of work and parts. I definitely do not recommend this place. It's just one big rip off.
