Amazing Service & Extremely Fair Prices!.
I went to a few local auto body shops to get a quote for the replacement of the two side rear-view mirrors and stumbled upon Beach Boys Racing (aka Venice Beach Auto Body). I read some good reviews on yelp and thought I would check it out - I am so happy I did! Within 5 minutes of arriving at the shop, Martin (the owner) had given me a quote that was $100 less than other quotes. Plus, Martin said he could order the parts that day, have them delivered by 1pm tomorrow and replace them on the car in less than an hour. In fact, this is exactly what he did... everything went so smoothly - it was almost like a dream. Martin was very professional and nice. I was so impressed and when I expressed that to Martin, he explained that he's been in business in the same location since the 80's and has never advertised - he said he thinks good work and fair prices speak for themselves - I agree! He also said that they never promise more than they can deliver - its a small shop and they do not take more work than they can handle so the repairs are done right away. It was so refreshing to go in and have everything go as expected and consistent with the estimate. Whenever I'd brought cars into shops in the past, there was always some sort of unexpected problem that would cause delay or increase the cost.
This was by far the best experience that I've ever had at an auto body shop.
