Best car repair shop

Where would you say is one of the best in lower mainland? I've heard AK autoshop is pretty darn good so I may be taking my car there for repairs, can anyone chime in or give any other recommendations?

Driver side rear wheel/rim is dented/scratched with some scratches on the rear bumper on the same side. Would it be better to take it to the dealership to get it fixed or an independent repair shop?

Thanks!

Dealership will outsource their work anyway.

Fasttrack Autobody in Richmond has mostly good reviews - I only know of a few on RS that had bad experiences.

You need to go to a wheel repair shop. The 3 most reputable ones in the lower mainland are:

-Greens
-Nu-Brite
-Panther

All have similar pricing. Other shops exist. Search is your friend as this has been discussed multiple times.

For deductible payment, does the repairshop ask you to pay when you pick up your car or will ICBC send a payment to you? If so, would the only way to obtain a receipt for paying a deductible be contacting ICBC?

There is a guy near oppenheimer school that has an entire lift in his garage. lol, I saw it when I was lost in that area. He seemed to be doing work on the side as I saw a few cars in the back.

Seemed legit to me
