Okay, got into accident today (No not with the bimmer )

It was not my fault. So now I'm in need to find a good body shop. Can anybody recommend me a good one (Preferably in Mississauga area) ? What I mean by good one is that they dont skimp on repairs, parts (OEM not aftermarket). Good paintjob (I dont want messy paint etc).

My insurance offered me these bodyshop
1. B&B Automotive
2. Impact Auto Collision
3. Meadowvale Collision
4. Lyons Autobody
Does anybody ever deal with them before? How was your experience? Would you recommend them (Name of the person I should get in touch with)?

How about Honda dealership (The car is honda accord btw)? Anybody have experience with them?

Thanks again guys/gals

Well, from what I've heard, you should NEVER goto any body shops recommended by your insurance, they do faulty repairs and get extra money for a crappy job.

Dave, I just saw on W5 on CTV a report on Body Shops and Insurance companies, seems like they're working together ...*mumble* The insurance companies would like you to go to one of their "recommended" shops to "CUT" costs, and the body shops don't do as good of a job as they're paid to... sucks :( ... that's why the paint on my car didn't turn out that well ... :mad: :mad: :mad: I went to Meadowvale Collision*no-no*

I say take it to the DEALER ! Oh I forgot, I've heard good things about Woodchester Collision, near Mississauga Honda.

Mister J Autocollision (i think that's the name) ask Charlie he knows for sure.
They did a better job on paintjob than BMW at the factory. It is perfect. and i must say my car was the sh*ttiesr car there. so it is safe

also I dunno, but I wouldn't recomend any dealership.
ask Rob who works there. like 10 students and 1 licenced mechanic.
