Very Impressed
When your car is in need of repair after an accident, I strongly recommend A1 auto body.
From the minute we stepped through the door we felt we were in good hands. They took care of everything including the car rental. We took the car in on the date that we were told and the car was ready on the date that we were told. We also were very pleased with the condition of the car, it was like we were getting a new car.( detailed) We would like to thank the staff for the care and support that we received during this rough time.

This is the very first time I had services done by A-1 Autobody and was very satisfied with their work. I was told that it will take about 2 weeks to get the repairs done on my car and they did it in 7 business days in the winter time...that was quick!

Ely, that's what I named my car lol was pristine clean and inside and out! Thanks A-1 Autobody! You guys are awesome no wonder you're # 1 in the list of preferred body shops.

I will definitely recommend A-1 Autobody to all of my family and friends.

Great service, return customer.
My 4th time to use A-1. I have had great service from the moment I call them until I pick up my finished vehicle. 2 of 4 visits were from other people running into my car and 2 visits were to have a few cosmetic touch ups to the car. Gary gives great input, always professional. Girls at the front desk are the best. I believe her name is Anna, sorry if Im wrong, the painter. A-1 is very fortunate to have her.

Thx A-1 Team.

Accident = Bad Luck/ A1 Auto Body = Good Luck
I can't figure out if I'm lucky or unlucky. On the one hand, it's not great to be rear-ended three times in the last five years (okay, there was a fourth little fender bender that was my fault, but we don't need to talk about that). On the other hand, I haven't been hurt (or hurt anyone), and I've had the good fortune to take my car to A1 Auto Body more than once. Firstly, in case of an accident, you want the communication between insurance adjustors and the staff at A1 Auto Body to go smoothly, and it always has for me. Secondly, I was able to get in to the shop for a free estimate on the same day I phoned which sped up the whole repair process. The estimator was efficient and thorough in his work, sending me the results within hours. At the front desk, there is a friendly and competent receptionist who kept me updated in a timely fashion. For example, A1 had to order some parts before I could bring the car in, and she phoned me about that right away, so I didn't have to wonder what was going on. She recognized me when I came in, which I thought was pretty observant of her since it had been over three years since I'd been there. If you need a loaner car, it's a seamless process at A1, unlike some other places where you have to get a rental from a separate location. As for the body work, it has always been highly professional, and my vehicles have looked as good as new. In summary, I heartily recommend A1 Auto Body (and I have done so in the past) to anyone who needs body work done. The aftermath of an accident is a stressful time, but A1 Auto Body helps you through it as gently as can be.

A Wonderful Experience!
Thank you A1. Warranty work was done and I received a loaner car while they worked on mine. No problems. Great service by all. Free coffee!! I recommend them to everyone. Thank you again.

Job WellDone!!!
I needed to have some repairs done on my car when I accidentally hit someone because of the icy road conditions. My insurance had provided me with a list of accredited auto body shops and opted for A-1 Autobody Ltd. due to its convenient location for me, being near my office and on the way to my church.

Got my car yesterday and is very happy with the work done on it. It seems like I just got it from my dealer, they even did a detailing in and out of my car.

Thanks again.

Once again A-1 comes through!
My husband and I have been customers of A-1 for many years and have always received top-notch service.
Recently we had our vehicle repaired by A-1 after comparing estimates from other repair shops.
Once again A-1 came through!
We appreciate the excellent workmanship and the friendly efficient service.

Great Service
Following a very unfortunate accident, I had my car in for repairs at A1 Auto. The staff were great and very knowledgeable and were there to answer any questions. I would recommend A1 Auto Body Ltd. to anyone who requires repair work completed on their vehicle.

Fixing my Tiquan
I am super happy with the work done on my Tiquan by A1 Auto Body. They made my car look better than new and when I got it back it was cleaner inside and out than since I bought it. I was treated wonderfully when I dropped off the car. Steve was great taking me home and picking me up after my car was repaired. Thank you for taking such good care of me and my car.

Great Job
I had a front bumper replaced. The job was done well and the car was in and out in the promised time. I got an amazing loaner. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Mike Blank was great as usual.
(I have had work done at A1 Auto Body before and was very satisfied. That's why I go back.

A1 Auto Body is a Class Act!!!!!!
I am from Calgary Alberta and I want to share with you my experience I had with A1 Auto Body. This company treats you like your family!!. They took amazing care of me during this difficult time and assigned me Jon, a great guy who walked me through what they were repairing on my vehicle and the time line to complete the repairs. I arrived to drop off my vehicle and they had me with in minutes out the door with a beautiful SUV courtesy vehicle that would be safe for myself and family. I picked up my vehicle and the same superior courteous service was applied and I love the repairs to my truck. I recommend more people ask their Insurance for A1 Auto Body to complete their collision repairs.For a class act!!!!! choose A1 Auto Body Company. These guys are ***** five star in my opinion.
Thank you,
Matt Blair

Service rating (for 55" tv draw)
The service that I received from the A1 Auto Body staff was excellent from start to finish. From the guy that walked me to the loaner vehicle, and the girls at the front counter, and Mike Blank who did my estimate. All staff are very service driven, friendly, and give "service with a smile". I will recommend A1 Auto Body to all of my friends and family.

Great Service
Sent in photos of the damage to my car, received an estimate back next day, booked the car for repair, took it in on the scheduled date, had it back a week later as promised. Not only was the new door painted to match, but also front fender and rear door buffed to match the appearance of the replaced door. Nice neat job. Interior was also cleaned ... beyond my expectations. Thanks A1 for great work, on time, on budget.

Amazing service
30 years ago I was hit on the side of my car and went to A1 for the repair. This week after a hit and run I went back to A1 for the repair because of the awesome service that I had received before. I'm really impressed that after all this years that the service is still the best

I had a bad experience with A1 Autobody shop in Calgary.
A1 may be OK with body works but when it comes to hi-tech electronics they are useless and their workmanship is sloppy to say the least.

I took my car in to A1 for some body repairs. I was hit in the passenger side rear wheel area by a guy who was texting on his cell phone while driving his car in the parking lot at the airport.

The bodywork came out OK, no complaints there, but for some unknown reason the A1 guys had removed my navigation panel.

When I got the car back the navigation screen was chipped in two places, the plastic mounting frame was scratched and the navigation DVD was missing altogether.
Why they had to remove it? I do not know. I can only guess that they may have tried to copy it or something.
Anyway, the center console of my car was full of scratches; they had used it as a workbench for their tools obviously and the upholstery around the sun visors and seat belts stained by dirty greasy fingers.
I took my car back in and complained about the quality of their work.
And they fixed it. They fixed the chipped navigation screen. Guess what?
They covered the damaged area with black tape!!!

I was so disgusted I took my car and drove away.

I paid a lot of money for my car and they treated it with a total lack of consideration.
The Lexus dealership gave me quote for a new navigation screen.
It costs $5000 to replace it.

I really did not expect such a bad service from A1.
I am an old guy but obviously still naïve.
If you drive a beat up truck by all means take it in to A1 for body repairs but if you have a nice expensive car please do yourself a favor and take it somewhere else.
Ask your dealer of a body shop that they recommend or something.
A1 Autobody sucks. I am not going back in a thousand years.
