A few reviews from our customers..

"I recently had a front end collision while driving my 2014 F-350 and because of their local reputation I had my truck towed to Defew's Body Shop.  After a couple of weeks my truck was back on the road and I couldn't be happier with the service they offered.  Jacey, Jeff, and Jim are top notch people and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with them while going through the process repairing the vehicle.  They were even helpful in getting a rental car set up for me while my truck was being repaired. I would highly recommend Defew's Body Shop for anything autobody related."

"My mom and I have been customers of Defew's for years.  My mom wanted to post this review.  "I am an elderly customer.  The little receptionist has been faithful, loyal, and true.  In fact, the whole staff is! You won't be sorry to take your car to them!" -Wilma Ramage   I want to add that all of this is true.  They always save you money and give you prompt service.  Every car I have taken to them looks perfect when they are finished.  I trust them, and they help you any way they can.  They really do care about their customers.  I have never been so impressed with a business."

I recently hit a deer in my 2017 Mustang and Defew did a fantastic job repairing my car. The secretary Jacey did a phenomenal job arranging everything for me which made the process as stress free as possible. I would recommend this body shop to anyone! Very nice people!
