Best ICBC Repair Shop In Lower Mainland

Hi guys,

New to the forum here. Just got my 2012 Forester and some guy runs a red and hits me.

Hurts so much when the car is brand new so I want the best of the best work done.

I have read a few "good mechanic" threads but not sure if that is the same as a full service repair shop since this isn't really as simple as servicing.

ANY tips or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Got my 2012 rogue fixed at fasttrack in richmond also, because some clai just changed lanes right into my passenger side....

the mechanic did a walk around before and after the repair... and asked if i thought the ICBC estimator missed anything so he can inquire about the for me...

very satisfied!

I believe that Open Road Autobody has a consistently good standard of work - They're also Audi Qualified to work on their aluminum chassis', so that should be a rather good indicator of their quality

Bavara Autohaus is also a good shop in Langley... they have pick-up/drop-off service for your car throughout Lower Mainland, and usually provide a courtesy car for ICBC repairs.

I got referred to them by Ken @ Autowerkes so you know they do good work, considering Ken's standards.
