  • 5 star review  I had some minor derecho damage to my Explorer that needed fixing. They did a fantastic job and the detailing was excellent. They did all of the paperwork with my insurance agency and all I had to do was pay the deductible when I showed up! Very happy with the results!

    5 star review  Great customer service! I was on a trip and ran into a curb. They took me in right away and zip tied the undercarriage of my car that had been damaged and didn’t charge me anything for the fix.

  • 5 star review  Our vehical was damaged in the derecho, along with our house, etc. Don & Sons were great to work with. I honestly can't think of anything that could be improved. Their process and professionalism were greatly appreciated; basically they took one thing off my task list and just took care of everything related to the vehical. The work they did was excellent too.

    thumb Larry Sadler

    5 star review  We had some major hail damage on our truck. My father had taken great care of the truck and it looked great until the hail hit. We never figured it would look quite right again- but after Don and Sons did their work, the truck looks absolutely perfect! It came fully clean and washed on the outside and the inside was vacuumed and clean as well. They took care of the insurance claim and we were totally hands off other than dropping it off. 100% would recommend.

  • 5 star review  Don and Sons Body Shop repaired the front of my minivan. Nick Winkelmann prepared the estimate in a professional manner and the work was completed sooner that I anticipated. The work done looks perfect and the van was given a nice detailing inside--an unexpected (to me) bonus! Kudos to the whole team for a job well done!

    thumb Gregory Lamont

    5 star review  Took in our car after a front end collision. Nick got it in and out faster than I thought was possible. Very happy with the work and especially the detail job they did!

    5 star review  I am so grateful to Nick and the whole team at Don and Sons! They were so helpful to me while my car was there and I got a nice loaner vehicle as well! Nick certainly went above and beyond to make sure I was fully aware and that I understood everything that was going on with the car and our insurance company! I cannot thank him and everyone else at Don and Sons enough! You guys are the best!

    thumb Les Uhlmeyer
  • 5 star review  The customer service was fantastic and the repair was completed reasonably quickly. They provided a car for me while mine was in the shop. Additionally, they detailed my car for me for free. 10/10 will return again if I need further body work done on any vehicles.

    thumb Evan Wieczorek

    5 star review  They got my car done faster than expected. They provided me a free loaner. The dealer shipped a damaged door and they held out for a top quality one. The car was so clean and looked great when I got it back. Wow! I hope I don't need to, but I would certainly use Don and Sons again. I think this is the third time I have used them. Great work always.
