Bodywork in Atlanta

Can you recommend a good auto body shop in or around Atlanta?

Long story short, I had a fender bender yesterday, and the other guy and I decided it would be best to just go on our way since no one was hurt and the damage to the cars wasn't bad. I do need to have my hood replaced though, and I've never had to have body work done in Atlanta before, so I know of no one to go to. Any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks.

A friend had a good experience at Kong's on Cheshire bridge. For non-body work, I am very pleased with Automotive Service and Repair on Liddell Drive. If you asked them for a recommendation, I would trust them.

Best answer: Decatur paint and body in clarkston (out past the dekalb farmers market). Mike has done a lot for me over the years. He is very accommodating and straight forward. I got a quote for a fix on my one of my last cars from someone else. It was over $800. Mike fixed it for $245 with original parts and carefully walked me through everything. I totaled my last car in the middle of the night and had it towed there. Mike called me by 7 the next day asking if I was ok. The insurance company underestimated the damage by $4k. Mike fought them for me. It was a relief to have someone I could trust and who knew he could have gotten $16k from my insurance company to repair my vehicle. He made nothing and helped me get my insurance settlement within 48 hours!

It would help to know what type of car you have. I know a few places that are very good at getting body parts, but only work on specific types of cars.

Response by poster: Decatur Paint and Body offered to do the work for half of the other places I took my car to. Thanks for the recommendation.
