Looking for a completely honest auto body shop that won't rip you off and will do a great job? Avenue Auto Body is it! I needed to get some dents and a loose bumper repaired on my 2004 Highlander and was paying for it out of pocket. My insurance company was not paying for it, so I wanted to get it done as economically as possible, but yet have a high quality result. I took it to several auto body shops in Torrance, Gardena, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. I couldn't believe how much some of these places were going to charge me! I guess they figured that unlike an insurance estimator, I wouldn't know what was reasonable, and the fact is that you don't really know. They tell you all kinds of things, cost of the paint, labor, prep work - it all adds up to some ridiculous amount. Even worse, I sent my wife to get the estimates and some of these places really inflated their estimates. Holy cow! The estimate from one of these places was 2X more than the estimate from Avenue Auto Body. I am so lucky to have found Avenue Auto Body. The owner - Steve Hornbeck is personally on site, supervising his whole operation, making sure that everything is done right, that you get charged a fair and honest price, and that your car will look fantastic when they are done - even if it is not your insurance company that is paying for it. I was 100% satisfied. It was a good feeling knowing that every bit that it cost me was completely worth it. Steve will tell you exactly what he can do, how he will do it and how much it will cost and will do the job to your complete satisfaction. What more can you ask? There is only one auto body shop in the South Bay that I will take my car to for body work and that is Avenue Auto Body.
