Norcal auto body

Sometimes you need a miracle in your life, and Northern California Auto Body is just such a place. It’s so rare to find a shop where they take pride in being totally honest and providing good prices and great repairs. I had a huge limb smash down on my car, and several shops told me it was not repairable. However, Bill was willing to go the extra mile, and see what he could do. Result? He got a beautiful new windshield in and the car is happy and beautiful and able to get on the road again. Thank-you guys! This is the place you want to go, when you need body work done. What a relief to find a shop like this!

Frank is a heck of a nice guy, for starters. And flexible — I brought my vandalized Nissan to two other shops that only wanted to stick to some insurance-mandated script, which was not the case here. Frank played ball. Quality of craftsmanship seems fine too. Nice guy. Reasonable price. Did what he said he was going to do, on time. Five stars.

Northern California Auto Body is as good as it gets! My mother was the first to learn about this business and whenever we have an auto body need, my family and I go straight to them. They are very fair and honest. As women, my mother and I do not feel taken advantage of and all the work that they have ever done on our cars is superb!

I love this shop and owner, Frank, is amazing! A couple of years ago I got into an accident and got my car fixed at a local shop in Pinole. I thought they had done a good job until recently when I noticed the paint was fading and peeling. I got in contact with Frank told him about my mess and he asked me to bring my car in. Not only did Frank fix my messed up paint but also did it in a timely manner. He’s amazing at what he does and I highly recommend his shop!

Fantastic! These guys turned my beat-up old Mazda into a brand new car! My car had both passenger side doors torn open (like a sardine can) from an accident with a dump truck. It also had all the scratches, dents, and worn-out paint that comes with being a well-loved old car. The car looked terrible. Frank and his crew took the car for a few days, and gave me back a brand new car! The work they did is perfect, the car is immaculate: perfect paint match, high polish, detailed inside and out. They even vacuumed my carpets! My car hasn’t looked this good since it was new. I am very happy with the work done by Northern California Auto Body. It’s clear that the owner, Frank, really cares about his customers and enjoys what he does. I would trust him with any body work, even on an expensive luxury or collector car. That’s how good a job they did on my little economy car. This is a very rare case where the service actually exceeded expectations. And all at a very reasonable price, with friendly customer service. Well done!

We got three estimates. The price was really fair and we liked Bill who works in the office. He worked with us on a good price that was offset by our insurance. But mostly, I have to say that the 1997 car looks like it is brand new! They repainted it and fixed the bumper where there had been an accident and smoothed out the other dents. They finished the work right when they said they would too. I hope I don’t need more body work on my cars but if I do, I know where to go now! I can’t gush enough about the awesome job they did!

Chad looked at the damage and absurd me it was no problem to fix. It was during the 2019 holidays, and always seem to get real busy during that time of year for everyone. Chad was professional and very respectful of our needs getting the car back and in the same condition before the accident. Thanks Nor Cal auto body. read less

After some time, I decided to take the risk of getting an estimate to get rid of the ugliness of my scraped-up car. After several ridiculous estimates, my insurance company recommended Nor Cal Auto Body. What a blessing that was. The estimate was very realistic.
Chad Riffe, the owner, handled all the paperwork, and he worked well with my insurance company. He communicated effectively well with them, and best of all, he and his crew did an OUTSTANDING job of fixing my car. It looks like new.
I highly recommend Nor Cal Auto Body for its professionalism, its honesty, its knowledge of what is the “right” thing to do, and especially its friendliness. I felt secure leaving my car with them. read less

I brought my car in to get my rear bumper fixed after being in a little fender bender. He was so great. The insurance company that was supposed to be paying for the repairs was giving me the run around and Chad was so helpful with the whole thing. I ended up getting my car back and having a beautifully fixed rear bumper. And a big thanks to Chad who was so helpful and friendly throughout this whole situation! I’ll definitely bring my car back here if I ever need repairs done! read less

So I decided to take my truck to a place close to my house. I found Nor Cal Auto Body. I walked in and met Chad, the owner. He was extremely helpful and willing to help even though I did not have full coverage and had to pay out of pocket. He kept me in the loop for the whole process. He was very honest about the extent of the damage and what needed to be done. He gave me options on what to do and I took his advice to heart. God forbid if I ever crash my truck again. But if I did, I know that I will go straight to him. read less
