Know a good body shop for hail repair?

6 posts in this topic

Got my hail estimate for my SUV today. Wondering if people can recommend any body shops in particular that do a good job on hail repair.

My vehicle will have a combined paintless dent repair along with a new roof and new hood.

Minneapolis/St. Louis Park/Edina/Bloomington area preferred.

Thanks in advance.

Back when I was going to school for collision repair we toured Lehmans which have several locations. At the time they hired a lot of guys from Dunwoody and seemed to have a pretty good reputation.

Your insurance company can be a valuable resource and can give you some recommendations on shops that other clients have used and have given good feedback. There not going to recommend the shops that clients have had problems with!

I would bet that you will have a pretty fair waiting period to get your vehicle in with all of the vehicles that have been damaged so far this year.

I have had good luck with Abra in Forrest Lake. I know their PDR is outsourced from independent companies.

Give George a call at M&M Auto Body in Excelsior. I've had them work on some other things and have been very happy. I'm pretty sure they can handle that.

The closet shop I know of to you is Mckays Collision in Coon Rapids.

Doug or Ron will take care of you!

Either this, or what Airjer said about going with your insurance company. I would expect a little back log right now, due to the recent weather.

Good luck!

I second Lehmans. I did my internship for Collision Repair there and they do great work!

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
