Only place I'd ever go for body/collision repair (hopefully I never have to).  ;)

Located @ Civic Center & Thomas in South Scottsdale.

Crying out loud, I had a massive brain fart on that one.

I will try to get there tomorrow.  Appointment with chiropractor today after work and I know there is a shop close to the office. 

Thanks!

Just a thought .The est you get from an ins company is not the full amount to repar the car/truck.It is short changed .The ins company gave you a check in hopes you cash it and then the deal is closed.When you choose a bodyshop for repairs there will be a supplament to the party paying the bill (ins comp)at that point the adjuster will inspect the car/truck and pay the remainder balance to the repair/collision shop.Hope this helps Onix :)

No check as of yet, they are coming out tomorrow to take pictures and give me an estimate.  The place I stopped at today seemed shady and basically told me to get there estimate and they will work with it and if there is any additional unseen damage they would deal with the insurance company so what you say makes sense. 

I will be by First Class Auto Body on my way home tomorrow, around 4ish for an actual estimate.

Thanks for the insight..

Same thing happened to me. in April, I got hit. Bumper is gone, but the vehicle scratched other parts, which upped the check. I got $1200, which was enough to order the bumper and suspension work.
