    I just wanted to leave a review for Rudy Schmids Total Car Care as they we so excellent from start to finish. Brought my vehicle in to get the bumper replaced from an accident. They made the entire process so easy for me and handled everything … More from my rental car, to dealing with the Insurance adjuster and all the financial end of it. While there I thought I needed new brakes and rotors, and asked them to replace them while my car was there, but after they test drove it and inspected them, they told me I had a lot of life left to them and that I really did not need them at this time! Instead of just replacing them because I thought I needed them. Totally honest company...When I got my car back they had completely vacuumed and cleaned the inside and the outside! It looked awesome! I would never bring my car anywhere else...they do it all! Thank you so much Rudy Schmids!!

    Repaired my tail light and fixed scratched and dented areas on the side of the truck box. Excellent job of matching the paint color which isn't easy to do! Fantastic work and very professional.
