Collision Repair

I recently had a driver versus pole accident.  It was 100% my fault and I decided to go to a body shop that is local in Santa Monica. I told them it was my fault. And I would not be going through insurance. I asked them if they could work with me in any way.  The answer was no.Their estimate was for $3800 and three weeks in the shop. I immediately drove over to manuals, and their price was less than half, and done in four days. They are courteous, conscientious, and a great company to do business with. I have use them over the years and have never had a bad experience. I recommend them highly

Dent Repair

I had a significant dent in my passenger side front door and went to Manuel’s body shop for an estimate. Martin was quick and efficient in writing up the estimate for me. I expected the repairs to take 5 business days, but received a call on the third business day that my car was ready. The repair job was very well done and my car looks brand new! I experienced excellent customer service, and the body work and paint job were exceptional both in quality and timeliness. I want to add that in the midst of this pandemic, I noticed how conscientious all workers were at cleaning the office seats, desks, bathrooms, etc. as well as opening the doors for their customers and keeping the appropriate distance. I was happy to see that not only did they do a great job in auto body service, they are also taking actions to prevent the spread in our community while running their business. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs auto body work done and plan on using them again in the future.

My experience at Manuel’s Body Shop has always been extremely satisfying. I have taken my cars to this body shop for both minor and major repairs. Regardless of the services needed, Freddy ( The Owner) and his staff have gone out of their way to make sure that everything is taken care of to its minimal details. The service at Manuel’s Body shop has provided me has been exceptional. I highly recommend Manuel’s Body shop where you can always count on an honest, friendly, superior quality service.

Collision repair

Someone hit my 2017 Ford Explorer about 2 weeks ago and I took my vehicle to Manuel’s for an estimate. Freddy gave me an Estimate that was priced reasonably and was promised repairs to be completed in 4 days. Not only was my SUV ready in 4 days but there were several marks that my local car wash was never able to get rid of the times I had it detailed, Freddy polished them out and my SUV was returned looking brand spanking new. I will be recommending Manuel’s to all my friends and Family. Thank you Freddy and Team for the great customer service and awesome repair to my Explorer!

Auto Repair

This is the body shop I have been looking for: kind, professional, knowledgeable. Steven (one of the owners) referred me to someone else for a job they couldn’t do, while they took care of my vehicle for a different problem they were able to handle perfectly. Couldn’t ask for more: very happy with the work done (Carlos work was flawless), as well as with the advice I’ve got. Highly recommended.!

Really great experience getting body work done on my car! They want to do their work right and do it right the first time. I got in my car after picking it up and noticed something was quite right, so I took it back to the shop, and they fixed the issue right away. Really thankful to have such attentive and nice auto shop mechanics!
