Honest, Friendly, Knowledgeable
Brought my SUV in for a new rear tail light. Jose priced out the best option for me, found me an amazing deal on a good used part. When the part arrived, he did the work. He stayed true to his original quote and didn't charge me for some extra touchups I asked him for on the spot! This man deserved the reputation he and his staff have earned for honest, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful service. Totally recommend LIMA'S BODY & PAINT SHOP.

Top Notch
It was a total pleasure doing business with José. Excellent workmanship, fast service, and a super-friendly, honest man. All at an estimate much lower than other shops. I will definitely recommend Lima's Body & Paint Shop to anyone and everyone.

Great service!
i have just returned from taking my "hard to service because parts are hard to get" rare 1998 Suzuki model - two seater. Most shops only try to send me away. Jose was fantastic. "We will get it done and make it work". His estimate is far below other local shops and you can see by his work done on other cars there, it is excellent quality. It is obvious that, Jose really takes pride in his work and how he treats his customers. Two thumbs way up!

Great experience having Joe do work
Joe is a very good and honest businessman. He runs a great body shop and goes over and above what is needed for customers. I will be recommending his services for all my friends and contacts.
Thanks for the great quick service and good discussions today.

Bad with phones, fantastic with cars
In a world of 5 star reviews, I wanted to make mine 4 because Lima's isn't perfect and I want you to know that right off the bat.
That said, it's still a fantastic place.

My critique is that he's super busy, and seems to have a little bit of trouble with administrative tasks; booking appointments, calling back, etc.

That said, once you do get connected, he is SOLID. He's kind and straightforward, and will do a *fantastic* job with your car. He even goes out of his way to get you the best deal, be it with parts manufacturers or getting the most out of your ICBC claim. And actually working on the car, he does the job and goes the extra mile - doing extra cleaning here and there, and he even hammered out a dent he noticed for no additional cost.

Jose is a great guy, and is absolutely worth the trouble of actually getting connected. ;)

Excellent service, and beautiful work done on our old Volvo. Very reasonable price, very fast service and lovely customer service. Really, don't look anywhere else if you need auto body work done these are your guys.

Good work - good value
Lima's just removed some small but noticeable scratches from my Highlander. They did a good job for a reasonable price. No attempts to upsell me to repaint the doors. Just a good sensible polishing and touch-up job at a very reasonable price.

Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend Lima’s Auto body in Victoria. Jose Lima, owner & operator, has been absolutely wonderful in helping me with all sorts of auto body repairs that I’ve needed done over the years. Lima’s Auto body was recommended to me years back, so Im happy to share this review & recommendation with you too.

A+++++ service from Lima's
my bmw had a few paint chips and Joe offered me some options on fixing it. We decided that the best option was just to brush touch up it and Joe did it for free! Talk about top of the line customer service, if you want that WOW factor, come see Joe and his team. I will definitely be coming back if I need any auto body work.

I called lima's with a car door that wouldn't close and a smashed window. Jose actually came out to my house, fixed the door enough that I could get in and drive it and I followed him back to his shop. This saved me the wait and expense of a tow. Then he gave me the number to call icbc claims and while I was on the phone with them, he tracked down a used car door window for sixty five dollars a.nd arranged to have it delivered to his shop from sooke for the next morning. While I was talking to icbc he got on the phone also to help clarify things I couldn't understand. He made the whole process easy for me from start to finish. Then he gave me a ride home. He fixed my car door for less than the 300 dollar deductible and I had my car back within twenty four hours. Jose cares about his customers and his level of service made what would have been for me a complicated and time consuming problem a breeze. I highly recommend Jose and Lima's auto body shop. Thanks Jose!

A Word of Thanks
Many thanks to Lima's skilled tradesmen for their excellent autobody work and front office's honest approach and reasonable rates. My friends are impressed by the repairs. I am very happy to keep and drive my car (that was on the verge of being an ICBC write-off)
