Default Auto Body Shop

I am looking for suggestions on a good honest auto body shop. A cement pole got in my way yesterday and caused some damage. I am thinking of paying for it myself and not putting it through insurance. I usually go to Bayview in Gilford, but I am open to other shops. Any ideas????

Irwin Zone Collision Center in Laconia did a super-duper job on fixing up a 2008 Saturn Sky with silver metallic paint, and silver metallic is supposedly one of the most difficult colors. The total bill came to about $6500, and it took three weeks mostly just to get in all the parts, and Progressive Insurance paid it all except for the $250 deductable, so it was a no-brainer to go to Irwin's. After a bad smash-up on a crappy Campton dirt road into an olde NH stone wall, no kidding, it was fantastic to have real good car insurance!


While there, noticed a couple of state police cruisers that had been hit and damaged.


And yes, this automobile was purchased at walmart! ...

Weston's in Wolfeboro. Metlife insurance is the only place they will endorse.

I am glad to be reminded about Weston's. I had some work done there years ago and I remember that they were very good.

Another vote for Weston's. They did beautiful work on my car a few years ago and were very nice to work with.

We have had good luck with Weston's too. We haven't had a chance to try Accident's Happen, it's too new. Hope we don't have to!!

Have used them. They are new so there is no long wait for an appointment and they do great work.
