Job Well Done
Better late than never but having computer problems and other distractions. Just wanted to thank you for the job well done on my Accord recently. It was nothing less than I expected but it included the little extras that were especially appreciated. You have been my only body shop since I first had you do some work on my long gone Acura. I will always highly recommend you to anyone I can. Thanks. Sincerely; Jack Walter

A Good Job At A Fair Price
My Honda Accord was losing the paint off its roof...pretty poor show for Honda..Eh? Jose looked it over and we agreed a fair price....much more reasonable than other quotes....I was thrilled with the result...I would recommend this outfit and when I need them I will use this shop again.....Thanks Jose!!!

3 Months Later and Body Work & Paint Look Great
Jose and his staff did a really nice job repairing and painting our 2005 Prius. He gave us a good price on the door panel and found a good used original toyota mirror for much cheaper than we expected. He also repainted the front bumper which had some scrapes on it for a small additional charge. 3 months later the body work and paint still look great. We highly recommend Jose and his staff.

Lima's Autobody & Paint
I feel compelled to comment on Lima's as they went above and beyond my expectations in quality workmanship and reasonable price. I highly recommend Lima's and again want to thank the entire staff for their expertise.

Lima's Autobody
I have been dealing with Jose for many years and recommend his shop whenever I hear someone's vehicle needs body work. He and his staff have given me such excellent service - would not think of going elsewhere. Jose is so professional!! The extra care he and his staff offer is wonderful. It is super to take one's vehicle in for repairs and know a great job wil be done as my trust in Jose and staff is 100%.

What Great Service!
I took my second car (Toyota) to Lima's Autobody because he did such a great job on my first car (Jaguar). I was not disappointed! The work done (on the bumper) was first class and he found damage which didn't even show externally (showed me the photos). When I picked uop the car both exterior and interior were spotless. This is the only autobody shop I will go to when needed. Jose is very personable and takes pride in his work. Great "old fashioned" service rarely found these days. Thanks,Jose.

Top Class Workmanship
While backing up, my truck gave a post a "kiss". The right rear quarter panel was badly creased & the brake light lens was scuffed.

When Jose and his crew finished, the truck looked like it had come off the dealer's lot - the repair work is superb! Jose was able to polish the scuff and scratches out of the brake light lens and buffed out scratches on the door caused by pets.

From the beginning, Jose ensurded I understood what needed to be done, how he was going to do it and when it would be finished. The service was excellent.

I highly recommend Lima Autobody.

Highly Recommended Autobody Shop
José and his staff were super helpful, honest, and did a great pro job on my car. The price can't be beat and I got my car back in a good and timely manner, which is nice as I require it for work. A friend of mine recommended Lima's to me and I will definitely return in the future if I ever need more work done. Totally recommend the place. It's nice to know there's a great autobody shop I can return to whenever I need some work done.

Lima's autobody is great. Jose is a pleasure to work with. He immediately called ICBC after I had the repair estimated to give them his opinion, which they honored. He arranged for the rental car pickup. He had the job done in the time frame he gave me, and they did a great job. Car looks like new.Completely trustworthy and friendly. I highly recommend Lima's autobody.

Follow up to December 6th Visit:

I took my car back to Joe at Lima's to get the body work done on my car. The car looks mint. This was a big job and ICBC wanted to write it off. Joe did his absolute best to ensure that my car would not be written off and went out of his way to find the used parts so that I could keep my car. The end result is fantastic. I was amazed at how good the car looks! I don't have to go out and look for another car now and I can continue to drive this car that I bought brand new. Thank you again Joe and your staff for a truly spectacular job! I appreciate it so very much and will not hesitate to refer anyone I know to you for their autobody needs. I am sure I will see you again :)

Want quality workmanship and excellent service bring your vehicle here!!!!!!!
Just picked up my Corolla today and was so impressed with the craftmanship. I'm not a very trusting person and I immediatley trusted Joe....he's a very personable businessman. He offered me a ride home when I dropped off my car....don't get that service at a big outfit. The price was great and I would not hesitate to bring my car back to Limas or recommend them to anyone. I used the reviews on this site when deciding whether or not to get an estimate from Limas....I was not disappointed. Thanks Joe for everything.

We have dealt with Jose for years and lately, with 2 teens, we have seen him far to often. But every time he gives the same 5 star care and attention and the job is done to perfection. It is rare that you will find the kind of service Jose and his staff provide. There is no were else I will take my car.

First Class
I have just had a small repair done by Lima's Autobody. The work was "first class" and Jose is a pleasure to deal with. It is rare to find someone these days who takes such pride in his work and his attention to customer service. A great find. I will definitly return to Lima's if I need a repair.

Highly recommend. Great service
Great customer service and work done. Had a little accident parking and needed the bumper reattached. Other autobody shops wouldn't be able to get me in for 2 weeks and Jose got the job done the same day. Also his price came in significantly cheaper then the two other shops I got quotes from. Incredibly happy with the quality of work done and the customer service was outstanding. Highly recommended.

Service Excellence, Friendliness and old fashioned values
Went to Lima without an appointment. Was treated Royally by the owner Jose Lima, who immediately diagnosed/appraised my car. He immediately assigned it to one of his mechanics who fixed what I thought was a major disaster. Doug fixed the problem and refused to charge me for his 30 minutes of analysis and labour (OH they use Snap on Tools - must mean they are TOP GUNS). After the repair Jose did not want to take payment for this First Class Service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lima Auto Body to anyone. Thank you and all the best for deserved future success.

FINALLY.... Craftsmen I can Trust...
FINALLY I've found someone in this business I can count on, and trust. As a female consumer, I'm so sick and tired of getting snowed when something happens to my vehicle. I can't convey the piece of mind it brings to deal with folks so conscientious, reasonably priced, and trust-worthy. LIMA went above and beyond in their workmanship, stuck to their quote, and did the very best they could to work within my budget.

With gratitude...

Quick and easy
Wow! that Limas can really move. A bumper repair two days and a wash and clean.
Great work and what a positive atmosphere.

You'll thank yourself for going here
Jose and his crew are by the far some of the most outstanding and integrative people that will make sure your car is looked after as if it is their own. There can be a huge difference between the service you receive from an auto specialist, with even larger differences in your pocketbook. If you are in doubt of who to go for your auto body needs, look no further. I'm a first time customer but will certainly be back and will recommend Lima's to anyone I talk to in Victoria and the surrounding area.

Jose at Lima's Autobody
I 'modified' the door of my little Pontiac Sunfire when I reversed out the driveway this morning. Twisted the door hinges so badly the door wouldn't shut. Popped in to see Jose Lima (recommended by Kevin at Saanich Auto Repair)
90 minutes later - Voila! Back on the road! Fixed. Very reasonably priced too. Thanks guys.

Definitely recommended!!!!!
Jose is very trustworthy guy, he even showed me pictures of his work and made sure everything was done right. His welding job was solid and I would recommend him to everyone. The price was very reasonable, he will never try to rip you off like other bodyshops do and he made sure that I was happy with his job and told me not hesitate to come back if I have any concerns or questions. Excellent customer service!!

Above and beyond
Travelling from alberta. Jose gave me great service at no charge. Good advice, friendly. He assessed the car for roadworthiness and fixed the mud flap. I would highly recommend the service here.

A BIG Thank You to Lima's Autobody and Paint Shop!
A BIG Thank You to Lima's Autobody and Paint Shop!, our Camry Family has been depending on your great service and advice for years. Bravo!

(You just saved me many hundreds of dollars compared to what the other autobody shops quoted for painting.)

Excellent Customer Service
I have been always impressed by the customer service I have received when working with Lima's. I would highly recommend this business.

Lima's has great service!
My old Toyato van took an annopying crunch by my daughter. Trouble is, older vans are hard to justify fixing. Jose did an excellent and professional job.

Jose at Lima's is great! This shop goes well above the call of duty. And, he also knows how to make practical solutions for older cars, but also has the skill and equipment for major collisions on newer cars.

Don't let the front office fool you. This is a great body shop.

Great Work
These guys do really nice work for reasonable prices. They were a little optimistic in their completion times, but the wait was worthwhile.
