Who knows a really good body shop?

So after working 10 days out of town i came back to Edmonton looking forward to my 5 day break...... and sure enough as soon as i take my truck out for a spin I get rear ended by a Pontiac G5, Well its more like a G4.5 right now LOL!

But my question is, anyone suggest a body shop that does really good quality work. I mean Im not paying for it, his insurance so i figured might as well go to a high quality shop, Any suggestion?

Forget about Service Collision... everyone I know who went with them hated their service, me included. I'm still waiting on them for some replacement parts they screwed up over a year ago...

A friend of mine recently had his insurance send him at CrossTown Motors and he was very satisfied with their service and the quality of their work. It's a Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealer, but their body shop will work on anything...

Modern Autobody - hands down the best - but you (insurance) will pay for it.

I have taken my wife's truck for autobody repairs at Freedom Ford several times and they do good work - though their estimated completion times are often overly optimistic.

Good luck!

Modern does not do domestics! But it is the best body shop in the city!
But I heard that the new Dodge dealership Crosstown i think as mentioned above does really good work as well.
