I was rear ended on the freeway and the other driver took off with out taking responsibility. The amount of damage sustained was very significant, about $5,000 worth. Since Impact is right around the corner from my home, I thought I would swing in and get an estimate on the damage. They were able to provide one right on the spot and were very honest. They even pointed out damage that I hadn’t noticed. When I got home, I immediately started reading reviews on them. I knew right away that I was dealing with a top notch firm. I read several reviews and almost all of them were very positive. The ones that were negative, the owners of Impact contacted and made right. The owners even made a point to thank those who provided a positive review. Most of the time, reviews fall on deaf ears (good or bad) and the owners of the company could care less. There customer service as well as their desire to make their customers happy was the number ONE reason I chose Impact. Since I had to pay my insurance deductible to get my truck repaired, I opted not to rent a car. I let them know and asked them if there was any way to get the repairs done any sooner than estimated. They were able to get it done in about half the time saving me from lots of frustration of operating with only one car. My truck came back looking better than when I dropped it off!! Thanks Impact Auto Body – I would recommend you to any one who needs auto body work.
