2003 Best Auto Body Shop, West

George’s Auto Body Service/Ken’s Auto Body

Honesty and patience aren’t traits typically associated with an auto body shop. But George’s takes the pain out of taking out the dents, with fair prices and work so good you’ll never know your car was damaged. They won’t patronize or hurry you (they even close for lunch at noon), and the shop is a short walk away from the Needham MBTA commuter line. If they’re busy, try Ken’s Auto Body next door. It has both the same ownership and the same old-fashioned work ethic.
