One of the best experiences I have had with car repair. Shawn explained the repair options clearly and intelligently; we arrived at a solution that saved me money and left the car looking superb. During the repair, he noticed a scratch on the back of the mirror support and repainted it for free. He completed the whole job in 1 1/2 days -- about half what other places estimated. He also set me up with a rental car at a great rate. He was highly professional and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.

I recently took my car 2000 BMW 328i to Shawn Saidi at Active Auto Body after an accident. Shawn was extremely courteous and a consummate professional. His repairs were extremely well done, on time and priced very competitively and reasonably. He arranged for a rental car within 5 minutes and, when a needed part was delayed from the dealer, called me regularly to give me updates. The car was ready when he promised me it would be and he was very flexible in letting me pick it up at my convenience. Overall, I had a very positive experience with Active Auto Body and would unconditionally recommend Shawn to any customer, anytime. He is honest, trustworthy and offers a very good service at competetive prices.

This Active Auto Body is a body shop from your dream! They fixed my car over $200 less than their original estimate which was already very reasonable (which company would honestly do this?). They did such a great job fixing the damages, they washed and cleaned the car inside and out. It looked brand new when I got it back. The owner and employees are exceptionally professional and polite. I highly recommend this shop!

Shawn did a complete repaint plus removed alot of dings and dents from my much loved 510. The car glows! He is a pleasure to deal with and really takes pride in his work.

Shawn is fantastic. I brought my car in after a pretty big accident. They worked directly with my insurance to cover the costs. Additionally, when my insurance wasn't sure that some of the damage was due to the accident, Shawn and the adjuster that came out really worked with me to understand the insurance company's point-of-view. The insurance company eventually covered one of item in dispute, but not the other. For the other part, Shawn found an inexpensive used part as a replacement and saved me a lot of money. Whenever I called, Shawn was always friendly and available. I never felt rushed when I asked him to explain the work being done or the insurance process. I will definitely return to this shop for all my car problems!

Shawn is personally involved with his customers; he took most of my calls himself, really helped me deal with the insurance jackals, coordinated all the work (even some performed by another shop), and fixed a small dent unrelated to the job for free! I recommend this place to anyone with no reservations at all.

I am very pleased with these guys. Not only did they give me thorough and efficient service (they did a great job on my bumper), but they were considerate, responsive and they even gave me a hefty discount as a new customer.
