    Rudy Schmid body shop did a wonderful job repairing the whole front fender on my 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It’s looks as good as new. The paint job matched perfectly. They are so easy to work with. They were friendly and very efficient. … More I highly recommend them for any automotive repairs.

    Rudy Schmid is 100% one of the best shops I have been to. Not just a repair shop but a business in general. They went above and beyond expectations. They made sure all parts going back on my truck after an accident was OEM and fought with … More the insurance company to make sure everything was done correctly. They did a great job of explaining the process and how everything would go. Every time I called they were professional and treated me like I was their only customer. I would highly recommend them for any body work or paint matching. They truly are the example of why you go to a family own business. The owners were amazing and friendly.
