Client Reviews

Brice C.

SE collision Center is the only place to take your precious car for reasonable, trustworthy repairs. Their staff is courteous, timely and above all respectful. I’ve had more than one experience with body shops and I can say with full confidence, that they’re number 1 in my book. Took my A4 there twice and had my car back the same week before the expected date and time. While the hood could of used a little more buffing the work was imaculate. Much better price, customer service and quality than the competitors.


Katen R.
SE Collision is a reliable and seemingly well run business. Def cringed at idea of trying to find an affordable/reputable shop and thankfully, I found these guys. Taylor kept me updated on the status, walked me through all my 100 questions, and even helped inform me on some other unrelated items I had with another car. They return phone calls quick, they knew I needed the car ASAP for work and Taylor worked tirelessly to get it done on time and keep me up to speed the whole time.
PS: They also wash your car which was cool.

Your dealer may not be your best choice for collision repair. Many of the highest-quality facilities in the area are not affiliated with dealers. Your dealer generally has no unique edge in terms of technology, techniques, or parts availability when it comes to repairing your vehicle after a collision. Rather than automatically returning to your dealer for collision repairs, we encourage you to be a careful shopper when selecting a repair facility. Ask your friends, neighbors, and relatives about the experiences they have had with collision repair facilities, and select the shop you think will provide the highest quality result.
This occurs when the cost of repairs comes close to the ACV (Actual Cash Value) of the vehicle. The cutoff for when a car is a total varies among insurance companies. For instance insurance company “A” may have a cutoff at 75% of the ACV whereas insurance company “B”s cutoff is at 65%.

Our estimates are free, and you may drop in for an estimate anytime during our hours of operation. Estimates take approximately 20 minutes to complete, depending upon the extent of the damage. We also can take a few quick photo’s and email you the estimate if your in a hurry.

If your insurance company is covering the repairs you are only responsible for your deductible, which is payable to SE Collision Center, at the completion of repairs. The insurance company is responsible for all repair expenses above your deductible. It costs you no more to choose the repair facility that provides the highest quality repairs.
