    Repair shops

    What are some good auto body repair shops you guys have used in the Des Moines area? Our SUV was hit in a parking lot.

    Altoona Auto Body. Small, family owned. Really care about their customers and the work they do. I have used them a couple of times and highly recommend them.

    Do you know if they charge for estimates?

    I've used Jacobsen auto body in west des Moines on fuller road with great success. I'm very very picky and I was happy with the results.

    I've used Acheson Auto twice. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. They are a small but very professional shop that takes a lot of pride in their work. They'll give you a free estimate with no pressure.

    Scotty's Auto Body

    Awesome people and they don't charge for estimates. I have used them twice, and been very pleased with the work. First time I used them, came in $300 lower than the other estimate, second time, they totally gave me a deal on the work I needed done. Also, don't need to make an appointment for an estimate, just drive in and they'll give you an estimate.

    I went to Graham in Urbandale. It was an insurance claim, so no info about the costs, but they did good work.

    Bump the thread for another good endorsement. Had some State Farm insurance work done there. They got us in quickly, finished on time and the vehicle looked great.
