This is the second time that I have gone to Bob Carter's, and I am so happy that I did. The staff is friendly and professional, and their prices are very reasonable (especially compared to those of other body shops). They took the time to answer all of my questions, which I very much appreciated. They did high quality work and returned the car on time. I returned to Carter's because I was confident that I would get good service, and I had a very positive experience with them.

Some Common Myths About Collision Repair For Your Car:

“Only a dealership can properly repair my car's damage.”


Most dealerships don't have auto body repair services.  It is a specialized segment of auto repair. Many dealerships in the area refer their customers to us.

“Only my insurance company can choose a collision repair shop for me.”


 Your insurance company has no say whatsoever in where you get your vehicle repaired. It is always your choice. That's the law.

“Multiple estimates are a  must. ” 


One estimate is all it takes. You never need to provide your insurance company with multiple estimates. Pick a repair shop that suits your needs.

My car got keyed pretty bad (like large words written across my entire driver-side door).  Bob Carter's got me in pretty quick, worked well with my State Farm to make sure that everything was covered, and it was very easy to get set up with them.  State Farm required me to submit pictures to get an initial estimate for the work, and all I had to do was forward that to the shop and they took care of the rest (including submitting 2 more estimates to make sure the work got done the right way).  Because of this (and I guess my insurance coverage), the work was fully covered without any additional cost to me.  I mention this because State Farm tried to steer me towards their "preferred shops", many of whom were farther away and would have taken significantly longer to get me in.  But I looked into it further, and Bob Carter's DOES work with State Farm and all of my work was covered!!  So don't give it a second thought if this happens to you!  Very glad I looked into the insurance stuff more because I'm very pleased with the entire experience working with Bob Carter's, so it's not surprising they came so highly recommended family and several of my patients.  Highly recommend!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the collision repair claims process affect my repair?


We work with every major carrier of insurance. We are experts at dealing with your insurance claim. Every company handles claims differently. Please call us to discuss it and we can answer any question you may have about the claims process.

How long will this take?


The short answer is: it depends. Many factors play into the timeframe for repairs: parts availability, insurance company processes and procedures, and the severity of the damage to name a few.
Every repair is different. A bumper replacement can often be done in two days, whereas a quarter panel replacement can take several weeks. We always try to minimize the amount of time the vehicle is in for repairs because we understand it is inconvenient to you to be without it. You are always free to call and check up with us when your vehicle is being repaired. Seeing your vehicle in person for an estimate is the best way to get an accurate time frame.

Do you use OEM parts?


We use OEM parts as much as possible. If your insurance company specifies the use of aftermarket or used parts, we will try our best to get our vendors to "price-match". Sometimes OEM parts aren't available anymore, in which case aftermarket or used parts are necessary.
