    I have used the Schmid family for 25+ years. I would call Dianne and P.J. "business friends". Weather in the frame shop, body shop, or rust prevention, they have always been stellar in their trade. They are professional, courteous, … More attentive, and responsive,... which most shops struggle with today.
    I highly recommend anyone to call the Schmid family for any type of autobody, frame, and general maintenance/service. If it's something not in their expertise they will direct you to someone who is. You are in good hands when "Schmid happens."

    I’ve been bringing my vehicles to Rudy’s for more than 20 years. I’ve received incredible service! They go above and beyond. Most recently they worked with our insurance company to secure the highest rate of reimbursement, their work is … More impeccable and delivered with a smile. I only bring my vehicles to Rudy’s.
