I use Richmond Autobody in North Van because they're close to work. Great guys. I've been rear ended and hit in parking lots so many times that they know me well... lol

HOME - AK Autoworks.com

I used AK Autoworks at the recommendation of folks here earlier this year and was happy with the work. Good colour matching, the work was very complete, and there was good communication. It's right by Boundary/1st.

Do they do ICBC claims? I went to them a few years back for private work and they were the cheapest by far for decent quality

We ended up taking it to KP’s body shop on venebles in east Van. The reviews online were pretty amazing like 4.9/5 stars with over 150 reviews and my wife said it was a fantastic experience with great people all around so far so we will see how it turns out

I have had great experiences with Pender autobody in Vancouver.
Did amazing job with my Silvia front bumper which is Pearl white. Very hard colour to match.
No runs or orange peeling at all.
