Southside body shop recommendations,please!

My crashed car will be fixed by Farmer's, but my usual Orland Park Auto Body is gone.

I'm looking for a reliable shop in the Palos, Orland,Tinley Park, Worth, Frankfort area ASAP, they want me to remove it from the towing yard tomorrow.The car is currently in Harvey.

Any info would be much appreciated, including shops to avoid. Thanks!

+1 on Danrich. My buddy has had them do work on two of his cars and highly recommends them.

I took my car to Bump and Grind which is also in Homer Glenn and they did good work. They used OEM parts.
Good luck Dani.

I and my family have used Guardian Auto Rebuilders in Evergreen Park for at least 30 years. Always good service and excellent workmanship. I've used them twice in the last year or so for my van.

I can tell you Bump and Grind in Ornand did a horseshit job on my mother in laws car. She got it back yesterday and its going back. Trunk didnt line up, paint has runs and fish eyes, and fuel door does not open.

Both my car and my mom's car has been fixed by Cars Collision in Orland Park. I think they did good work on both cars. Also, my dad is an insurance agent and he sends a lot of business their way and we haven't heard of any complaints.

That sucks. The work they did on my car involved new headlight and fender. Not much to mess up so that's why I didn't rate them high or low.
