I finally decided to write a review of Winter's Autobody.
The first time I took my car there was because in the winter I made a right onto Portage from my street and went around a large chunk of ice which missed my tires but high-sided by rocker panel, which mashed it right the hell up. It bent it so badly that my passenger door couldn't open or close properly until a kind man at a bodyshop on Arlington took a chunk of wood and a mallet to it to pound it down.
There book-in time was 5 weeks, so I made the appointment before I saw MPI, as they were booking 2-3 weeks in advance.
When I dropped my car off I was given a 2012 Ford Focus sedan for free, I only had to bring it back with as much as gas as I picked it up with, and that was on an honor system as well. I was rather happy with the car as it was completely cleaned when they gave me it.
Winter's had my car for around a week and a half, when I picked it up, the inside and outside of my car was cleaned and the work they did was perfect. I was also happy with the time it took them as they had to cut out the old rocker panel, weld in a new one then do all the paint and rock guard.
However, there was a decent sized scratch on my passenger door, I walked in and told the guy that I was dealing with about it and he told me they'd take care of it when I brought my car in next (They new I was coming back for other damage at this point).
The next time I dropped my car off, which was for some hit and run/assholes in a parking lot damage, they again gave me a completely clean 2012 Ford Focus, this time a hatchback. They had my car for exactly 7 days and once again the work was perfect and my car was clean inside and out.
As for the damage to my passenger door that occurred at their shop, they were able to simply buff it out, so the same guy that I dealt with previous times called me up and told me that it was removed just by buffing/polishing and he asked if I would like to use my courtesy repair for rather large door ding on my drivers door (someone had to really hit my car good as it was on a body line), of course I accepted and asked if I could come down and take a look at the area they buffed and polished to make sure it was good, he agreed. When I got there they had already repaired the door ding, which involved spot welding it and using a slide hammer to get it out.
I picked up my car today, repairs are spotless, the 3 doors that had some damage on them look brand new and I'm extremely pleased with the work they did and how courteous they are.
10/10 I'm pleased. I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone.
