I had just bought a nice Honda Accord Sport and was in a severe sandstorm. The next think I knew I couldn't see through he windshield. My agent, from Farmers, said I could use any body shop and also advised to take it in because sometimes other things get pitted. I decided to go with Advanced Placement because they had good reviews. I went and met with Matt, he educated me and stated it may take 30 to 45 days. I handed my keys over. I came today to pick up my car. I am not only sporting a beautiful car but a big smile...WOW! They did so so much work on it, over 8k worth of damage. Tristan (owner) is aware on how insurance claims work and ensured all was repaired. Best thing, their work has a lifetime guarantee. I am extremely happy with the team. THANK YOU! So lets support AP Body shop, our local business. I will be back so they work on my truck!
