The Chapparone guarantee
Chapparone’s San Diego Auto Body Quality Control detail and Customer Service are second to none. Our Expert Staff inspects each work order line-by-line and reviews the paint & detail work. They also make sure the lights, door locks, radio, and more are in perfect working order. Then a final test drive is performed to ensure all work checks out before the keys are given back to you. Our San Diego auto repair service and “customer experience” is what separates us from the next shop. We are more than an auto body and collision repair company because our focus is your complete satisfaction!
We understand and accept that the collision repair business is not a perfect, cookie-cutter business. We are in the automotive re-manufacturing business and circumstances can arise after the car has been picked up. We try to communicate this with customers as best we can upon picking up their vehicle so they don't need to feel uncomfortable bringing up any post-repair issues after taking delivery of their car. We will do everything in our power to satisfy our customers and we take the most pride in providing an excellent customer experience before, during, and AFTER the repairs.
Because we work for YOU, and not your insurance company, we are committed to providing the best repairs and customer service possible. Insurance companies may tell their clients that if they choose their own shop for repairs that they will not warranty the work if something were to happen after the repairs have been completed. However, we provide a written lifetime warranty on all workmanship and service after our repairs for as long as you own your vehicle. We've been in business since 1974 and we've always stood behind our lifetime warranty since the day we went into business.
