Jim Pattison Toyota Bodyshop?

Anyone taken their Toyota here before?

Tried to do a search and nothing came back. I have a white blizzard pearl Venza that was rear ended recently and want a perfect paint match for it.

Figured Toyota would be best for paint matching.

Is it the one in surrey?
If it is, then my GF took her her civic there as part of an ICBC claim to be repaired. She got rear ended and then she smoked the car in the front. So front+rear damage.

This place took a LONG time to repair the car. They would say ready by Tuesday, then comes Tuesday, they'll say ready by Thursday...
Also, at the time, they made her return the courtesy car and come pick up her own car, once it was repaired, even though it was snowing like crazy out.
I ended up driving cuz she was scared to drive in heavy snow. It wouldn't have hurt to wait 1 day, for safety sakes!

the guy i bought my car from said he had a fender bender repaired there before i bought the car.

the paint is a couple shades darker red then the rest of the car on the passenger side fender... and for some reason they painted half of the hood and didnt paint the rest so half of the hood is a darker shade of red...

its not even a near match, i cant put into words how off the color is, its a completely different shade of red... im embarrassed that anyone would pay for that kind of crap paint work.

Perfect paint match? Do Bavara Autohaus. They did an excellent job on my VW GTI which has the hard to match Deep Black Pearl metallic paint. Thy got the hue just right and can't tell the difference between the new and the old.

If its an ICBC Claim, take it to Open Road (Richmond) Bodyshop to have it repair.
I was pretty impressed with their repair + paint job. Their prices might not be
the cheapest in town, but it sounds like you got it doesn't matter
