What shop(s) do you use? Curious where people go

As the title says, wondering where everyone goes to get work done?

For me it's:

Mikes auto body in Malden
Synergy Auto Lab in NH
ProSpec in Quincy
Rim Pro for all things rims

Looking to see if there's great quality shops and people working there that we can patronize more frequently to give the good guys more business and possibly get discounts (maybe).

Thoughts?

I do almost all the work on my cars but Eurotech in Natick is trustworthy. They did my crank hub and I would go back.

You have a lift?

I do everything I can do, that doesn't require a lift, downside of city living

I have had body work done at Mike's in Malden. It was a deer hit and I needed work on front bumper, hood, front fender, two doors and sill trim. Work was done well overall. A couple of complaints - the door and the hood were not aligned to perfection and my OCD could not put up with that and I spent quite some time tweaking that myself. There is also some small ding on one of the doors that is noticeable at some angle. He is also charging more for M cars, but he gave me a discount, which I appreciate.
I went once to Wile Motorsport for a track day inspection. I wanted them to do a tire job for me, but their tire machine was good up to 18" (that was last year - they might have bought a new one) and I had to go to the dealer for that.

Your insurance may not pay his full rate. If I am not wrong, back in 2019 the rate my insurance paid was 40 bucks an hour and his M rate was 60. He might make a compromize.

Doesn't matter, someone hit me, they got a citation on the scene, I had dash cam footage of the whole accident. No money is coming out of my pocket
