Know a good body shop for hail repair?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
