    The reviews don't lie. I did not have an appointment; simply showed up with a newly purchased vehicle that had a few imperfections in the doors and rear bumper. Very friendly staff saw me immediately and was very honest about the cost to repair the bumper, even suggesting DIY alternatives to avoid the high labor cost. To top it all off, he even buffed out the spots in the doors during our conversation. Our interaction only lasted about ten minutes, but the employees went above and beyond, even after knowing they wouldn't be making any money from me. Customer service... read more

    They are on the list for USAA insurance and they did a great job appraising the damage to my car after being rear ended. After calculating the cost of the bumpers and headlights and so forth, they looked carefully at the underlayer and found that the frame of my car was dented. I'm so grateful that they looked closely! I have a long commute and often carry children, so safety is paramount. My car was totaled and I got a new, safer car instead. Thanks for your careful and detailed work!

    My car had gotten scratched with yellow paint and it looked really tricky to fix. I had no idea what to do because I'm not very familiar with how to fix things with cars. So I called Chapparone And a gentleman by the name of Tyler answered the phone and offered to take a look at the car even if it meant I could email him some pictures to get an estimate. He was kind enough to respond to me very promptly and also he gave me a good estimate and told me that he could actually be fixed without... read more

    They've repaired my car multiple times and always come through with a fair and honest quote and always deliver on their timelines. Staff is super nice and make things easy to understand. The insurance adjustor/estimator even knew them and had good things to say about them which is helpful when handling an accident. The finish quality and attention to detail is top notch!

    Mark sr and Mark Jr are both amazing individuals who take the time to make you feel like family. They are both empathic people and listen after you have a collision.
    Then I was even more impressed when I saw the repair work they did was amazing. You could never tell a repair was made. Also when the car was returned to me it was fully detailed. I can honestly say without a doubt I would recommend anyone to go get their auto fix by Mark and Mark.
    Thank you guys

    Pricing was fair and the actual job was quick. Overall mediocre experience, communication could have been way better. I would give 3.5 stars, rounded up since actual repair was excellent.
    I needed my underbody shield replaced, which was relatively a simple and quick job. A friend recommended this place to me. I got a quote very fast and the price was market average. But when it comes to getting my part and booking the next appointment, there was a long time range. I understand that it needs to be ordered and shipped, but I just wish they kept me informed....

    I was on the freeway and ran over a tire that ripped my whole front end off my Mustang. While I was waiting for the tow truck to get towed, I was quickly scrambling to research a good place to do the repairs. I've had bad experiences in the past with some of these body shops. I found this place on Yelp and it was close to my house. I noticed it had 5 stars with a good amount of reviews. I decided to take a chance.

He took our car the same day and had it back to us within 5 days. They did an amazing job! They blended the new paint on the hood with the 10 year old paint on the surrounding areas and you can not tell the difference. We are very happy with the quality of the work and would DEFINITELY recommend them!

    I came for an estimate and this company is following social distancing and masking policy. They told me to try paint-less dent repair for my minor dent instead of full body work. The estimator also was familiar with the complex 4 stage paint process for my car, which can't be said for the dealer owned body shop themselves. This is a business with integrity and would return if I ever need more serious work.

He really took the time to examine my damages and explain to me what would be needed. When I dropped my car off, Louie was the one who took care of everything.... read more

    Louie, Rick & Summer were amazing! Although, we all had an unfortunate experience with Turo, being that their guest was responsible for damages. Turo did not want to properly restore the vehicle and take care of the situation. However, Louie went above and beyond to say the least. After my experience I will only allow Chapparone to do any body work to my car.
    You're car will be in great hands!!
    Thank you Chapparone team!

    I stopped by to get a FREE quote for front end damage on my bumper. Rick Enge came out to look at my car. First of all, customer service and first impressions are very important. Rick was professional and very pleasant. He listened to what I wanted done and acted as if it was equally important to him that my car be repaired to top notch condition. I picked up my car today and it looked like it just came off the show room floor. Thank you Rick.

    I can't express how happy I am with the customer service, specifically from Rick. He was friendly and helpful through the entire process. The cherry on top was how amazing my car looks. The guys had a hard time matching the paint and ultimately did so beautifully. My car was detailed and even had the headlamps buffed for me. Rick and the guys found a small water leak in the trunk I have been battling with and fixed it for me. I recommend this shop over any other! Thank you to the Chapparone team, I will always come back.

    I was looking to get a scratch removed from my front bumper and a large dent removed from the front portion of my car next to the windshield, thanks to something flying up and hitting my car while driving on the freeway. I received a few quotes from places in North County, and thankfully a friend told me about this place and I decided to see what they'd be able to do. Glad I did because they were able to give me a better price than the other places. I went in and got a quote on a Friday with... read more

    These guys do excellent body work and their service is outstanding. When I smashed up my beautiful 4Runner they took care of everything and fixed it up like new. I especially appreciated how they took charge of everything, arranged the towing, and contacted and engaged my insurance company to get the ball rolling.
    Big thanks to Louie and the entire team!

    When I dropped it off for an estimate, I was greeted by the owner, Mark and his wife. They discussed how they were planning to fix it and I was in and out quickly.

    My mother brought her Lexus RX to Chapparone after someone hit her car. She was greeted by the owner Mark Chapparone who walked her through the process and helped her with an estimate of the damage. Super nice guy btw who my mom really appreciated. She arranged for a date to bring the car in and Louie took care of everything else. They even have enterprise rental car a few doors down so that made it super convenient.
    Start to finish was a great experience and the car turned out perfect. They went the extra mile to clean the exterior...

    I brought my car in recently to repair a cracked bumper. Mark knew we were shopping around for estimates and offered to match competitor's pricing. He also took the bumper off to look at any additional damage that may have occurred so we knew just how much it would be before committing. The paint color matched perfectly and I got my car back, detailed within 2 days. They go above and beyond for their customers.

    Unfortunately I'm back again, my rear bumper was vandalized.
    There's only one place I trust to match my paint color correctly and that's Chapparone of course.
    Mark and the team scheduled me in right away and had the car back to me in 3 days without sacrificing the quality of work.
    Thanks again guys. You've earned a lifelong customer, but I hope I don't see you anytime soon.

    I have FINALLY found an auto body shop that I can depend on in San Diego. I have been having a lot of minor issues with my car, and Louie was able to help me out. He was able to explain everything to me, and he was so kind in understanding that I don't understand car parts/lingo very well. Also, the entire office was kind in helping me get an Uber back home! This kind of service was unheard of to me, but they helped me when I needed it!

    Brought my van here after getting rear-ended back in December. Rick and Summer were just so easy and friendly, I never felt pressured or ignored. They took care of insurance adjustments on my behalf and everything was smooth. The rear bumper was like new and they did a superb job blending the paint and clear into the rear quarter panels. I'm definitely a repeat customer (if needed lol)

    I stopped in today to have them look at a small area where it looked like the paint had been taken off. They were super friendly and helpful. Lo and behold all it took was 5 minutes buffing to get 95% off the damage off - and at no charge. Would highly recommend!

    My BMW was t-boned, and it looked pretty bad. Luckily, I reacted quickly and swerved, so the impact wasn't direct. I wasn't worried because that most of the car guys recommend Chapparone. These guys are meticulous, and insist on the best results for you. They just finished my car, and it is back to showroom condition. Thank you Rick and the rest of the crew and staff. You guys are certainly the best!!

    This place has a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly, and the attitude is "how can we help you solve your problem?" The customer feels that Chapparone is on his or her side. The repair they performed was flawless, and as I was checking out, I was told that the work had a lifetime guarantee. The car was thoroughly cleaned and later I made a surprising discovery. They even vacuumed the trunk carpet! I was impressed with such attention to detail which they really didn't have to do. I hope to avoid another collision, but if another occurs, I'm... read more

I really appreciated that they kept me updated on the progress of my car every step of the way!

    I have been to a handful of auto body repair shops and luckily, Yelp pointed me in the direction of Chapparone. Which, without a doubt, has proved to be my best auto body shop experience yet.
    You can't beat the customer service Chapparone has to offer. I've always admired family owned and operated businesses, and my experience here only strengthened this notion.

    I can't say enough good things about my experience with Chapparone, especially the owner, Mark! I recently moved to San Diego and had my car shipped via transport. During this process, my front bumper was ripped off and was practically touching the ground on the driver's side. After looking around for a locally-owned body shop, I found Chapparone and reached out for an estimate through Yelp. Mark responded to me within 15 minutes (!!) and assured me that I could bring my car in first thing the next morning. Mark made the stress of finding a body shop and getting... read more

    I was involved in a hit and run. I brought my car to an insurance recommended shop and they wouldn't give me an estimate. I got my estimate without an issue at Chapparone. I'm happy to go with Chapparone for the repair. They did a very thorough job and didn't rush at all. The car looks like the original. Louie handled my case and he even sent me a hand written thank you note after the repair. That was a very nice touch. I can't recommend this place enough.

    The car was repaired two days ahead of schedule and spotless inside and out. Extremely satisfied with the workmanship on the repair and would highly recommend this place!
