A-1 Body & Frame’s customer service begins the moment you walk through the door. We will answer your questions and help you through the auto body repair process including arranging a rental car and coordinating your insurance claim.

A-1 Body & Frame offers FREE repair estimates. Sometimes, damage may not be easily seen. With your approval, we will completely disassemble the damaged area to get a more detailed and precise assessment of your auto body repair needs. We will tell you what is required to restore your vehicle to pre-accident condition.
A-1 Body & Frame practices quality control throughout the entire auto body repair process. Every technician, every step of the way, is responsible for conducting work-in-process examinations of the repaired area before proceeding to the next step. We also conduct a final checklist inspection before we consider your car ready for release.
We know your vehicle is an investment in mobility. But consider HOW your vehicle looks is also a direct reflection on you. Small dings, scratches, bumper and door dents are unsightly. They also affect value, especially for leased vehicles. We offer competitive pricing, quick turnaround time, and employs the very same quality procedures for bumper, scratch and dent repairs.
Our certified technicians only use pre-approved auto-manufacturer’s unibody repair equipment to restore your vehicle back to their standards.

A-1 Body & Frame can perform beautiful paint finishes so your vehicle looks as brand new as the day it was made. From blending paint after an accident to spot painting and entire vehicle painting jobs, we can help!
Detailing preserves your vehicle’s “factory finish” luster and keeps it looking great for its expected lifetime and then some. Car detailing is especially effective where cars sit outside and are subject to environmental hazards like pollen, bird droppings, sand and the occasional snowstorm. When your auto body paint job is completed, our detailers will buff your new paint job, polish the wheels, and clean the interior. Your vehicle will look as close to new as the day you first brought it home!

Jay was AWESOME!!! Extremely professional, kind and knowledgeable. Did excellent work on the front bumper on my Chrysler 300 (deer damage). He even saw my mother’s suv and rubbed out a bright yellow mark when she backed into a pole. New Longtime Customer!!”

“I worked with Ben in the front office. Our Equinox’s lower front bumper was partially un-clipped from the front end. He worked quickly with a tech and was able to resolve the issue in a short amount of time. The bumper looks great. They were professional.”
