Editorial review from Citysearch 7/24/2014

I got in a accident in burlington NC on my way to atlanta ga.. The person who tow my car recommended darnell allen body shop so I took my car there 2 get some work done to it. I got my car back 3 weeks later. $5300 worth of work was done to my car... I pick up the car paid my $500 deductible and headed back to Ga where I reside.. 5 days after receiving my car back.. My car completely stops working.. My car is a 2012 Nissan Atlima, so I had my car towed to a Nissan dealership where they told me my engine had blow due to lack of coolant getting to the engine.. After looking at the work that was done on my car at Darrell allen body shop.. I show that a new radiator was placed in my car.. I called and let the owner of darnell allen body shop know.. If going back and forth with her for several days.. The end result was darnell allen body shop was not going to pay 4 me to get a new engine in my 2 year old car that they fix and I only had for 5 days if though they said they have a lifetime warranty on their repairs.. I am down right disgusted with this shop and all the stress and worry that they have caused this disable veteran.. If u want a honest shop that will take care of u and do the right thing, please DO NOT GO to DARNELL ALLEN body shop.. Save yourself time and money more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/23/2012

In the spring of 2011 I pulled out in front of a car and I was t-boned on drivers side of my 2005 Nissan Titan. I didn't think it could be fixed . Darrell Allen took my truck and made it look new. They called me regularly with updates and when my cd player didn't work they got in touch with local Nissan dealership and got new player installed and saved my cd's for me even though they were damaged. I have never dealt with nicer people anywhere, Today 10-23-2012 I took my truck back because back door on drivers side would not shut properly. I went inside and less than 20 minutes someone was with me , made adjusments to door-no charge and apologized because over a year later some screws were loose. Most places I have dealt with would not even bother with something like that and would have bad attitude because you bothered them. I would not take my vehicles to anyone else and I highly recommend Darrell Allen to anyone who needs body work. more

Darrell Allen Body Shop 4/26/2012

I have used the Darrell Allen Body shop on 3 or 4 different occasions, and every time I was treated very well. The people are friendly and polite...AND the jobs I've had done to my automobiles have been excellent! Pros: null Cons: null more


I recently hit a deer with my Honda S2000 and was in need of having my car repaired. I had heard about this shop in the area so I went and had an estimate done there and was instantly amazed with the facility there. I knew that my car would be in good hands there. I decided after having the estimate done to look into having the entire vehicle repainted at the same time to take care of some of the other small blemishes. I was overwhelmed by the whole experience of having my car repaired here; the office took care of handling the claim with my insurance company, I rented a car from their facility and was able to drop it off with them when I picked up my car! And when I picked up my car, it was like new! Detailed inside and out, I could not get over the new look of my car. Now people ask me all the time; what year is your car and they don't believe it when I tell them it is a 2000 model and 12 years old. So I tell them how it got that way and where to take their cars if they want s more

A Complete Body Shop 6/9/2011

Over a year ago, I had wrecked the side of my Honda. They made that side look better than the other side that hadn't been wrecked! Incredible quality of work! The customer service was great! Everyone went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I had everything I needed for my situation. It's that kind of all around quality that reduces your worry if you have an accident because you know are about to be taken care of at DABS! Thanks so much guys! more

Choosing the BEST body shop 10/8/2010

If You are in need of vehicle repair and maybe not sure where to take your vehicle ... Please read below. I would like to tell you my experience there so that maybe it will help You decide which body shop to choose for your vehicle repairs. \r \r One year ago .. a large tree (during a storm) fell on my truck. The damage was very extensive and due to the limbs on the tree\r that fell .. damage was almost everywhere.\r \r When I received my truck back from Darrell Allen's Body shop after all the repairs they did .. I could not believe my eyes. The quality of the work done at Darrell Allens .. was the very best body work I have ever seen .. (and it takes allot to satisfy me). They didn't just put a coat of paint over the damages like many body shops do .. Darrell Allen's body shop built my truck back \r original from the inside out and used almost "zero" body filler to do it. If I have ever made a smart decision in my life .. choosing\r Darrel Allen's body shop to do the repairs was definit more

owner 8/10/2010

I currently hae my vehicle in the shop being repaired from an accident. You will never find such courteous people as the ones I have worked with so far. The entire group is friendly, personable and caring. There is never a good experience to force you into a body shop, but Darrell Allen is a place to be proud to have in Alamance County. They stick to their word, take care of the customer 100% Let's hope we don't need another body shop-BUT, you should always use Darrell Allen! more

Worth the wait 5/17/2010

My truck was hit in the right rear - took out the taillight and folded up the metal pretty good. The earliest appointment for repairs (after getting the estimate) was about 5 weeks out, but the end result was worth the wait. Darrell Allen did a professional job in every way, even totally refinishing the tailgate with new trim. As others have mentioned, the vehicle is delivered in a completely detailed manner (washed and waxed). more

In March I hit a deer with my honda civic. Based on reviews online we decided to get our car repaired at darrell allen's. I am extremely pleased with what they have done to my car. They matched my paint job almost perfectly, and gave us some touch up paint too. They detailed my car I swear it looked as good as it did when I bought it. Thanks for doing an excellent job. Keep up the good work! Oh and customer service OUTSTANDING!!!! more

Darrell Allen Body Shop is OUTSTANDING 10/23/2009

Kudos to Darrell Allen and his wonderful staff. This was the third time that we have used their services. In this case they helped us with special circumstances . Our son the owner of the car that was involved is a Marine stationed in California (Currently deplored in Afganistan) We had such confidence in Darrell and his staff that we didn't give it a second thought to have the car shipped from the West Coast here to have it repaired.They helped us so much with the process. We picked the car up this morning and it is beautiful!!!! Thank you so much for turning what could have been a very stressful situation into an easy one. John and Meg F. more

The Best you will EVER use! 7/30/2009

The best body shop you will ever deal with!! Exemplary work and customer service stands them above ANY automotive shop I have ever dealt with! Use them!! more

Excellent service 4/12/2009

I have had my car repaired there twice in a 6 month period. Never in my 34 years of driving and dealing with body shops have I come across one with the excellent service this one shows. The employees show the most professionalism and they are always one step ahead on scheduling or calling to inform you of current happenings with your car. They had my rental cars always ready and waiting and I never spend anytime in the office on returning on check in. I would recommend this company to anyone and I personally will ALWAYS take my automobiles to them for any and all work. Thanks Darrell Allen for being such a stand up company. Hard to find in this day and age. more

Recent Repairs to my VW Beetle 1/29/2009

I recently had some rear damage repaired on my car at Darrell Allen. Not only was everyone I dealt with very professional, they were extremely friendly and resourceful. An experience that could have been a disaster, turned out to be very easy, thanks to these great folks. The repairs are top notch and the paint looks great. My car looked like I had just driven it off the show room floor when I picked it up! I would readily recommend them to anyone. more

NOT SO GREAT 10/24/2008

I just had my truck painted and the paint looked good, but there were paint spots from over spray on the rest of my truck that they claim could not have happened at their shop. I thought that was pretty funny considering they admitted that there are instances of this happening and their Dupont Rep. who happened to be at the shop at the time stated two different times that he could not say for sure that it wasn't their product, the owner still insisted that there was no way it was their fault. However, the owner did promise that he would remove the paint spots and said if we brought our truck back they would take care of it immediately. We brought our truck back as soon as we got off the phone with the owner and it sat in their lot all afternoon and they never took care of the paint spots. They have been paid for work that we are not satisfied with. I quess once you pay them, you are out of luck if you are not satisfied. The owner assured me that they are a top notch business and that more

NOT SO TOP NOTCH 10/24/2008

I took my black truck to have some paint work done and when I got the truck back there were white paint spots on my truck that appeared to be over spray from other painting going on in the shop. I do not believe those white spots were on my black truck prior to releasing it to them, I had never noticed them before! They would not take responsibility for the over spray, even thought their own Dupont Rep. would not say it was not their product and the owner admitted there are instances of over spray at the shop. However, I was promised it would be fixed and we brougth our truck back up to the shop where we were told it was a priority and that it would be taken care of immediately. My truck sat up there all afternoon while I waited and they never fixed the paint spots, they just demanded payment for the unsatisfactory work that had been done and they would not release the truck until they were paid. We had to pay them in order to get our truck and guess what, the paint spots are still on the truck. The owner assured me they have a good reputation and that they run a top notch business. I guess I really shouldn't be surprised at the service and treatment I received at Darrell Allen Body Shop if this is what the owner considers top notch. more

Incompetent and Inconsiderate 6/4/2008

I took my car to Darrell Allen after it had been keyed because my insurance agent told me that they did good work. Well, I don't know if they do good work or not because they never got to working on my car. I set up an appointment with them over 2 months in advance and they needed my claim number to get the estimate before they would set up the appointment, so obviously they got the estimate or they wouldn't have set up the appointment. By the time the appointment date comes around, they claim that they don't have my estimate, so I gave them my claim number again and the number to my agent so they could have the estimate faxed over to the body shop. Well, 3 days later I call to see when my car would be done because I had not heard from them (they told me 2-3 days when I set up the appointment). They woman I spoke to told me she would call me back when she found out. Well 2 hours later I hadn't heard back, so I call and ask again. The owner gets on the phone and tells me that they just got the estimate that morning, 3 whole days after my appointment date, so they hadn't even started on my car!!! Why wouldn't they have called me if they hadn't received the estimate the day I gave them my insurance information? Not to mention the fact that they lost the first estimate they had when I set up the appointment. The owner then had the nerve to tell me that I'm not even on the schedule and I never set up an appointment, and he doesn't know when he can even fit me in!!!!!!! When I told him I had a card that the receptionist had given me clearly stating my appointment date, he told me that he had "been in business for 15 years and deals with 25 cars a week and has never had scheduling problems." Needless to say, I told them to not bother starting on my car because I was taking my business elsewhere. I would NEVER suggest this body shop to anyone, regardless of the "excellent" body work because they are incompetent and inconsiderate. Pros: I heard they do good work when they actually get to doing it. Cons: Impossible to get in, and poor customer service. more

They Are to Body Shops what Nordstrom is to Department Stores! 4/24/2008

Not too long ago I was involved in a single car accident. And, I knew that there was a reason why I chose to have Darrell Allen Body Shop to repair my beautiful 2007 Honda. I knew that I was leaving my car in the right hands because at this body shop they treat "your" car as theirs. They also put me in a rental car (one of their own) and by doing that I didn't miss any time from work, waiting at one of the large rental companies. When I returned to pick up my car it looked as it did the day I drove it off the dealership lot. My car was detailed inside and out. The paint matched perfectly! The guys went into detail about the work that they performed on my vehichle.I was a person not an appointment to them! They are absolutely TOP NOTCH! I am thankful for the service/time and dedication that they put into my car! To All of You at Darrell Allen Body Shop, You are WORLD CLASS!! more
