Good body shop in Atlanta area?

I rear-ended an F-250 (actually, the guy's big ole trailer hitch ) with my wife's 08 WK. Not a lot of damage visible but clearly the bumper package will have to be replaced. Don't know what else.

Does anyone have in experience with good body shops in the Atlanta area -- preferably Gwinnett county -- that you can recommend? Or any to stay away from? Our regular dealer is Hays in Lawrenceville but we have no idea about their body shop.

Of course, we're looking for that fine combination of excellent, perfect work with low price . If the price is right, we'll avoid an insurance claim and pay out of pocket.

Thanks!

Re: Good body shop in Atlanta area?

OK, first post didn't go thru, lets try again...

My family has been using Akins in Winder (Ford/ Chrysler/ Jeep) for years and the work that their bodyshop has done for me was excellent - did a few repairs (bodywork and paint) on a 2001 F150 that I previously owned.

I have also used United Collision in Duluth (Steve Reynolds Blvd) for repairs on a BMW X5 and they also did a great job. They are the body shop for all of the local dealers around there, but not sure if they service Jeeps.

Good luck!

Thanks Dawg! I'll look into both of those. We're between Suwanee and Lawrenceville, so both of these aren't that far away.
