Here's what our customers have to say...
“Just a note of thanks to you and your staff for the outstanding job on our LS. Needless to say, we were truly devastated when our car was hit outside our condo while we were inside having our morning coffee. We once again we can look at our car with the same pride and enthusiasm we had when we first purchased it.
Also, thanks to you and your dad for getting us to and from the airport during our stressful time. Your consideration was truly appreciated and we enjoyed our conversations with both of you.
Again, thanks to you and your talented men for a job well done.“
“I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of you for the professional, friendly, and most of all, quality work you’ve exhibited on two different occasions that I’ve had the unfortunate need for body work on two of my vehicles. My wife and I have been driving for 40 years each without so much as a dent and last year she was rear-ended in Albany, just after New Year’s and more recently, a ‘door’ fell on the front of my Dodge Dakota truck and caused some damage. Both vehicles were repaired to ‘better than new’ condition by your shop. I consider myself somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to my vehicles and I always defy anyone I know to show me where my wife’s car sustained over $4500 in damage. So far, no one has been able to spot even one single flaw. As a matter of fact, I’d even go so far as to say that the quality of the paint (black) is even better than factory! I’ve NEVER in 59 years, bothered to write a letter such as this to ANY business before, but I felt the need to do so now. You know, people are quick to complain about service, but they rarely offer praise when it’s due. So, once again, thank you for the treatment you extended to both my vehicles AND ME, for what could be a very trying experience. You’ve actually made it a ‘pleasurable experience’ to have repairs done on a vehicle… truly unusual in today’s ‘let’s see how much we can rip him off’ atmosphere. Thanks again.“
“Thank you so much for your great efforts on putting my car back together. It was a real joy to be in my own car and comfortable on our ride home. You can be very proud of your auto body staff and the help they furnish their customers.“
“Just wanted to say thank you for all the help with my car. Your kindness and generosity helped to ease my mind while I had a bunch of other things to take care of and you’ll never know how much I appreciate your patience with me through all of my questions. I will recommend you to anyone that needs work done on their car. Mine runs better now than it did before! Thanks again for doing such a wonderful and quick job on my car. I appreciate everything you did for me.“
Caprara's offers a selection of value priced vehicles.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I want only original parts used in the repair of my vehicle. Does your shop use original parts?
A: Caprara’s Auto Body strives to use OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts whenever possible. They were built specifically for the vehicles following all specifications to restore the vehicle to original condition. Occasionally the insurance company paying for the repair will only specify the use of non-OEM or used parts. Caprara’s Auto Body does the best job possible to try to assure that the used parts are of similar quality to the damaged parts being replaced and that the Aftermarket (Non OEM) parts fit as well as possible. Caprara’s Auto Body will ONLY do what is specified in the repair estimate from the insurance company unless the consumer agrees to pay the difference for any deviations or parts substitutions.
