Joe was very informative and fair!

Just picked up our five year old minivan today after being serviced by Auto Color, Inc. It had a couple of deep scratches, one of which I unsuccessfully tried to repair with a paint pen. Also, the interior showed obvious signs of three children. So we got a quote for an interior detail and a paint match/scratch repair. The quote was unbelievably reasonable - literally a fraction of the cost of what I was expecting. Then, when we went to pick it up, they had actually completed additional work on the outside of the van. Because of the type of paint we have (pearl metallic tintcoat.. or something) the match isn't exact. The color is, but the sparkly finish is not. But honestly, the previous blemishes are hardly noticeable at all. The van had some scuffs from various kid-related run ins, and some noticeable scratches on the back bumper of the van. I had planned on buffing them out and taking my paint-pen skills to the minor scratches on the bumper. When we picked it up today, all that was already done. The inside of the van? Looks like the day we pulled it out of the dealership parking lot. It seriously looks and smells new again. The attention to detail here is amazing, and the costs are very reasonable for what you get. I know they probably didn't make much money on this transaction because the interior and one of the scratches were worse than they had anticipated, but I was charged the estimated price only. I think there is a big market for low cost (well under $100 per scratch) paint repair, and I think they are doing it right. And I can personally say that the interior detailing exceeds expectations. If your car needs a little TLC, I recommend Auto Color, Inc to restore your pride in your vehicle without breaking the bank!

They did amazing work on a dent/scratch on my rocker panel. It is like it never happened! Price was also the lowest of anyone in the area. I can't recommend them enough.

At first when considering any new busines I haven't doubt with in the past, I admit.. I'm skeptical at first.. But, the owner of Auto Color cured my skepticism.. from the extra mile he went with not only meeting a great quality of work completed.. but also a out when Enterprise Rent-A-Car tried over-charging me for a rental car for 1 day. I will definitely consider bringing my vehicle back to Auto Color.

I've had Joe and his crew perform work on two different vehicles and was completely satisfied both times. They do an excellent job, communicate really well, are flexible, ethical and all for a very fair price. Highly recommend them as they are really good all they way around!

I went in to get a price quote. Cost was well within what I expected to pay. Got the appointment and went in. Work was done as promised and car looks as good as brand new! Job done. Happy with price and professional results.

I had a damaged bumper with huge scratches - they repainted and the job was flawless. I had a door ding requiring a small dent repair and touch-up and the job was excellent. Lastly, I had a complete detailing done and a ton of road tar, sap and crud was removed - the paint finish is great - it felt as if I was getting into a new car when I picked it up. The work Auto Color did on my car makes me think I'll never use a traditional auto body shop again. I recommend Auto Color HIGHLY to anyone who cares about their car and how it looks.

Definitely would recommend this place to friends and family. Owner is upfront about cost and what is remedies are possible for any scratches, dings, dents, upholstery work. I took my 06' sedan that has was in good condition overall but had a handful of dings, dents and a tear in the back door arm rest. Had an initial visit a few weeks ago and met with the owner and we took a look around my vehicle. Right from the get go he explained what touch ups could be done and areas that were slightly damaged that I didn't notice. We talked about an overall price at different round numbers and what was possible. After taking the car in yesterday my expectations were blown out of the water. The car looked great and the work around the car looked great. The upholstery was tricky because it was on the corner of the armrest between the upholstery and a piece of trim. They did a great job and would go back in the future. Thank you Auto Color!

I stopped in a week ago for a minor repair after being backed into. Rather than trying to talk me into an expensive repair of replacing the entire side panel, they quickly and cheaply pulled out the dent. Still a visible indent, but given the age of the car, I was more than pleased. I highly recommend them.

Excellent attention to detail. Joe was able to make my bumper look almost good as new, despite the damage I did to it. The cost is very reasonable and I bought the detailing package as well. My car has never felt and looked so good!

Two cars fixed same week, both can't tell a scratch was ever there. Great price as well.

Grahm did an amazing job fixing some small cosmetic issues that were driving me crazy. Great service and quality at a fraction of the price you'd pay anywhere else. Highly recommend!

Had a wonderful experience! Pulled in before work and they removed a dent from my car door in minutes. Very friendly and reasonable! Highly recommend!!

I had a minor scrape on a rental car. Before I returned the car, Auto Color fixed the problem for less than $100 in less than one hour. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Had some damage to my alloy wheels. Brought the vehicle to Joe and his team whom did an excellent job restoring them like new! Their attention to detail, transparent process and quick turn-around were top-notch. Since then I've returned for a second issue and won't hesitate to come back again! Joe will take good care of your vehicle!

Place did a great job on my car. Had a few scratches and a door ding. Took care of all of it in a day. Car looks like new. Best part was the price. Very reasonable for a repair shop. I would say less then half of the big chain. I highly recommend this company.

I scratched the rim of my wheel on a curb pretty bad. Auto Color was fantastic, they got me in quick, and did a great job repairing the damage, and for a price much cheaper than taking it to the dealer, or buying a whole new wheel. I couldn't even tell when they were finished! The owner is very professional and nice. I will definitely be going back for any future repairs.

This place was fantastic! I brought my Mercedes by there after Maaco quoted me $1,200 for a small fender-bender in my door. I just got the quote from them it's much less and they seem a lot more friendly. Besides that I'd rather support the local business I'll definitely be taking the offer.

When I got my car used, it was pretty good aside from a few problems. The pain problem was the back bumper which I had fixed at another body shop for $850. After that, all that was left were a scuff on the hood and the trunk which I cam here to get fixed. Once I got it back, it looked better than most of the rest of my car and it was only $90.The owner is very nice and does a great job for a low price. He's also very honest. Up front he told us what he was planning on doing, what possible problems could arise, and how likely it was that it would cost a lot more to fix.

I had a new pickup truck that had a good sized dent that went from the rail of the bed and it bowed the outside of the box. I was certain they would tell me to take it to a body shop, but they didn't, and they repaired it. Looks great again and they saved my wallet from going to the body shop. Thanks again!

Joe was very helpful finding the right and matching paint code for my side mirror cover. They had my job done on time for 25% less then everyone else i called for a quote. Job was done well and the paint matches perfectly. Definitely recommend using their service.

Bought a 2001 Honda Civic for my soon-to-be 16 year old son. Low mileage but the headliner was torn and falling down, made the car look bad. Talked to Joe and he said he could replace it. Honda wanted to order a new one and charge me over $600. Took it in to Joe, he did a fantastic job for less than half the price. Interior of the car looks great. Also had him refinish the fogged up headlights...they look brand new! Would definitely recommend this place, they did great work and were super friendly and helpful!

Because I was surrounded by traffic, I was forced to run over an orange construction cone with my Jeep, which knocked out the lower middle section of my front bumper. The plastic pieces that attached it on each side were broken off and still screwed into the car. Auto Color was able to reattach the broken pieces to the loose section of bumper and fasten it back on like it was originally - no jury-rigging. You couldn't even tell it had been broken off - it looked great and it cost under $100.00!! I recommend them highly!

Auto Color did a great job detailing my car and repairing a number of small scratches in my door and bumper. I appreciated the helpful attitude in the way they explained the different choices I had for the paint repairs. I never knew there were those options. They kept to their budget and my car was done on time. I have already recommended Auto Color to friends.

I had a several door dings fixed. they did a great job. They saved me about $400 compared to other quotes I got - recommend them highly.
