    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. From the moment I first walked in to get an estimate, to when I picked up my impeccably detailed car, everyone there was extremely kind and beyond helpful. They made my entire experience as pleasant and easy as... read more

    Somebody hit the rear bumper on the passengers side while my car was parked. My insurance company recommended a body shop to us...I checked them out on yelp and the reviews were bad and the pics of their work looked terrible. So I decided to find my own! Found Chapparone and they had a lot of 5 star reviews and their work looked excellent. Obviously decided to go there and everything was perfect. Employees here are very friendly and make you feel like your business is appreciated. Louie checked out my car, he was very professional, and straight to the... read more

    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.

    Everyone who we worked with at Chapparone was wonderful. They made the experience easy and smooth. The least stressful part of the entire accident ordeal for sure. Thank you, good people, for making it easy!!Shoutout to Louie!! He orchestrated the whole thing and fought with the insurance company for us to make sure we were taken care of. Great experience. I hope to never need car repair again, but if I do, I'll be back 100%!

Chapparone handled all of the communication between my insurance company and kept me up to date on the status of my car without having to ask them.The car was repaired two days ahead of schedule and spotless inside and out.

Walking through my experience. My car was in an accident and I was not at fault. The insurance company required me to get a bid from their agents and came with a super low cost on the repair.

I work sales and I would let the customer know how long we've been in business and what guarantees we have for the work and how we take steps to make sure your vehicle is tooken care of in the facility and about 10 other things I could bring up in order to let people know that we do know what we are doing.

    Just completed my second visit to Chapparone Auto Body for my RR Sport. Mark with his talented staff member Louie helped me restore the beauty of my car after a ding. Louie went above and beyond to deliver exceptional service - he listened carefully, and took a sincere interest in my repair. The external clay detail left my car feeling silky to the touch!

    First and foremost, Chapparone did an absolutely mesmerizing job on my car. It's a silver metallic and was keyed from front to back on both sides, and they seamlessly repainted and blended the paint and it looks brand new! That's why I regret having to give only three stars. Likely during the process of removing or masking the window/door pieces, a little chunk of my front passenger inside door trim was taken out, likely by a sharp tool used in the process. There were also a few scuff marks on the rear passenger side door, same trim piece. When I... read more

    When I got to the place, the receptionist warmly greeted me and got my van looked at immediately.  They kept me updated on the progress the whole time.  
    When I picked up my van, it was spotless inside and out!

    Don't bother looking at other shops, just go here.
    I took in my BMW M5 for windshield and slight body damage repair. The "other" place I went to wanted to do WAY more than what the car needed, even when I suggested otherwise.
    Chapparone agreed with me. They did great work and the car looks flawless.
    I had a VERY SLIGHT issue after the repair was done and it was addressed with ZERO push-back.
    Their team is extremely responsive... replied to my emails almost immediately. Excellent customer care. Louie was a pleasure to work with.

There were text updated on the status of my vehicle. It was finished and looks beautiful again ahead of schedule. And to top it all off they detailed my car so well it looks better than when I bought it from dealership. Would absolutely recommend these guys.

    Great repair and service!  I took in my new Audi for a damaged rocker panel, and the car came back sparkling inside and out for less than the bids at the two shops Audi SD recommended.  
    Rick and Summer were great. Because I could survive without a car for the three days they needed, they paid for an Uber to take me home and pick me up when the car was ready.  That's going the extra mile for the customer.
    I highly recommend Chapparone. The car came back detailed better than when it was delivered new from the showroom!

    I am very happy with the service I received from Chapparone. Louie was my service writer and interfaced with my insurance company professional. Interesting note  is that my insurance company instructed to use 3rd party parts for the service work.
    Louie worked with the insurance company and got the original replacement part for the back bumper as fitment was poor with the 3rd party part. The paint job was excellent and they washed and vacuumed the car before returning it to me.

    I found this business on Yelp after my car was in a collision
    My car came back as good as new - I was really impressed with the interior detailing, which was not part of the repair.  They went above and beyond

    Amazing work.  Quick, efficient, and a beautiful finish.  My BMW looks like new after being rear ended by a cement truck.  They did an amazing job and a perfect match to the paint.  My estimator Rick was great at communicating what was going on and keeping me posted on issues with the insurance representative.  Summer the receptionist was attentive and kind.  Ray the shop mascot (French bull dog), is adorable.  This shop is all you could ask for in auto body repair.  OK maybe an expresso machine in the lobby, would be a plus 😉

    Chapparone auto body is a company that I believe will take care of their customers. They will not let you down. The ladies at the front desk are super friendly and helpful. The gentleman that helped me was Louie. He explained to me what needed to be done (as in broke it down to real English for me) and went over every little detail on what will be done. Throughout this process, I never once doubted them because they kept me up to date on what's happening, and what more needed to be done.

    I decided it would be a good idea to do some work on my own car and I completely botched it ‍. I was recommended by a friend to get any and all things done at this place. I'm so pleased with the service, fixing and the end result. Everyone was extremely attentive and made sure to explain everything in detail. I will definitely be coming back! Highly recommend this place!

    My experience with this company was great from beginning to end! They were friendly, helpful and efficient, especially in following up with the insurance adjuster whom we'd previously made many unsuccessful attempts to contact. When I got my car back it looked as if the accident had never happened. And I really appreciated the "Thank you" card and coffee coupon that they sent me afterwards! Such a personal touch. I would definitely recommend them.

    So glad I made the switch to Chapparone, because I live in the area, instead of going with my insurance suggested shop. Going to make my review compact since most has been said already.
    What I loved:
    - Louie very quick at communication
    - Car came back shiny and detailed (and better shape than I left it, lol)
    - The dog got up from his/her bed, greeted me, and went back to sleep in its bed. What a friendly doggo
    Of course with all timeframe estimates, budget extra time as they are just estimates. The rule of thumb being that the longer the timeframe to...

I worked with Alisa and Tal during this process, and both were exceptionally professional and fast to respond to any of my questions.

    Amidst dealing with water and mold damage that had displaced me from my home, I found myself the victim of a hit and run accident. Suffice it to say it just wasn't my week. No physical injuries, thankfully, but having to foot the deductible for damage you didn't cause certainly leaves a bad taste in one's mouth. Thankfully, I knew the quality of Chapparone's work, as I'd had body repairs done on a different car nearly a decade ago. They were every bit as wonderful as I remembered and then some.

    Fantastic service and quality of work. I've gone to lesser body shops and insurance recommended body shops in the past. They always leave you with something to be desired when you pick up your car. I will forever take my car to Chapparone for body work in San Diego from now on. These guys are prompt, honest, and do stellar work. Bumper looks brand new like the day I bought my car. There's a reason this family owned place has been in business so long. Look no further!

    The reason I'm not giving 5 stars is I ran into some major struggles with Rick and felt I received some awful customer service the first go around. He made some promises to me when I initially dropped it off and he inspected it with me that were not met, and he did not communicate or update me at all really. Frankly I did most of the calling to inquire after several days of no updates or estimated date of completion.  When I called again a day before to confirm my car would be done the date Rick gave me... read more

    If I can give more than 5 stars I will!!! This is the best auto body! Came in for an estimate for a scratch and was greeted by very friendly staff including Rey the frenchie. Louie came and assessed the damages. He took my car and 5 minutes later it's good as new! And the most amazing part is he said it was FREE! I can't thank you enough for helping me. I will definitely tell all my friends and family on how great you are Louie and the whole Chapparone team. Thanks again and God bless!

    I used to use Penske, but after dealing with their rude manager, I decided to change to Chapparone. When picking up the car, I met Phil, he was so kind and very carefully removed the tape marks on my car, which he didn't have to. The car was very carefully taken care of. Never expected so good service! And their technician Tal is a effective guy too. I'll definitely recommend this place. I would rather choose better work for my car than some snack in Penske's office.

    I am so incredibly impressed by Chapparone! My neighbor had accidentally side swiped my car and was nice enough to tell me. Because of this, her insurance paid for the damages.
    What I was first impressed by with Chaparrone was the fact that I could just drop by and do a walk-in estimate. This made it easy for me to swing by on my way to work. How fast it actually took - I came in at 8:50am, and by 8:59am Louie had looked over my car, gave me a thorough explanation of the fixes he'd recommend, and provided me...

    I shopped around to many auto body shops before deciding to take my vehicle to Chapparone. My 2010 RAV4 had been hit on the side, and the rear fender trim needed to be replaced, along with some paint touch ups. My first impression of Chapparone was great- the staff was very nice, and the office space was clean and welcoming. However, when I received my quote it was well above all of the others I received from other shops that day. In comparison, the price difference was under the cost of labor. So at first this was a red flag-... read more

Louie Avalos was my service coordinator and I owe him a huge thanks as I was initially thinking that I would need to pay for my new bumper and radiator myself, when he suggested I try to go through my insurance instead.

    Great Business - Great Customer Service
    From the first call to the time we picked up the car, Chapparone and Louie treated us to a great customer experience.  
    We went in to have a bumper and window seals fixed; other shops quoted a lot more than Chapparone. Louie said we didn't need all that work others had quoted.
    When dropping the car we asked Louie if he could recondition the headlamps and with another minor issue with some engine area moulding. He said yes without hesitation. He jokingly asked "Anything else?" and I jokingly said, "Yeah, the engine block is dirty..."...

    Chapparone is an incredibly professional and courteous shop! I came here after getting into an accident, and not only did they repair my bumper, they detailed my car inside and out! The headlight restoration they did was excellent, and they even buffed out some other scratches my car had that wasn't even covered in the collision. Rick was incredibly helpful with updates throughout the process, and had my car fixed up in three days. The paint job they did matched perfectly, and I'll happily come back any time I have any work that needs to be done.

I sent pictures of the damage to several repair places. Some of the estimates were in the $400 dollar range and the best was $140.

    Talk about top notch service! I worked directly with Tal and he was very welcoming. Promised me that he would take care of my car, and that he did! He sent me status updates on my car along with pictures to keep me in the loop. As soon as it was finished, he called me, and i instantly rushed over. Tal and his team did an AMAZING job! If i could give them 10 stars, i would! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Jeep Grand Cherokee was in an accident with some pretty hefty damage to the front end.  I can't say enough about how professional this place is.  The experience start to finish is so incredibly easy and painless.  The level of service is outstanding.  
    I have worked in auto for 13 years and have a very deliberate eye for body work and detecting poor repairs or paint imperfections.  These guys did an AMAZING job.  No tape lines, no panel gaps, no mismatched paint.  Truly a highly detailed and perfect job.  I could not be more impressed with the workmanship.
