Kellie C. (Honda Owner)


“I was very impressed with Richies Body Shop.  Very nice people and very professional.  Did a super job on my car.”

Sandra S. (Toyota Owner)


“I had 2020 Toyota Tundra 1798 Platinum Limited Ed (4 wheel drive). This wonderful truck only had 2,999 miles on the odometer when a young man pulled out in front of me…..My truck was totaled which was obvious to people at the accident site. However, the young man’s insurance wanted to rebuild the truck and give it back to me. I am really sure they tried to convince Richies Body Shop to say it was not a total loss. Not even for the money – Richies would not lie. Even though they were going to benefit by rebuilding my truck. Richies declared the truck totaled and would not release it to the insurance company without my okay. Good decent people and honest business people”

G.G. - (Toyota Owner)

Tracy M.

“My husband has been using Richies Body Shop for 10 years. When he recently bought a Brand New Truck another shop damaged the rocker panel installing running boards, Richies was the only place we would even consider taking it for the repairs even though we live an hour away. The body work was flawless and you can not tell where the damage ever was, even if you tried to look for it! Once again we were impressed with this shops quality, professionalism and level of customer service! We will continue to use them for all of our cars!

Tracy M.

Stephen J.

“Took my repairs to Richie’s because I want it to look like new. Does a great job, works with my insurance company to make the repairs right and easy to let them deal with the adjuster. Adjuster was actually glad I used Richies because he works with them a lot. The Adjuster didn’t even require a second estimate.”

Stephen J. (BMW Owner)

Seth S.

“Massive tree crushed my new truck damaging nearly every body part of it. Richie’s had the best price and top quality work and customer service. Heather was so great at keeping me up to date on progress! Top notch and highly recommended!”
