When it comes to collision repairs, you are entitled by law to choose any auto body shop you want. So, choose the best: Gene Townsend Auto Body and Paint. In business since 1959, we have served thousands of San Diego and East County drivers and have more than five decades of collision repair experience. We are certified by the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) and deliver exceptional auto body and paint services for cars of all makes and models, including both foreign and domestic. Using state-of-the-art computerized frame measuring tools, wheel alignment systems, color matching equipment, and more, we are able to achieve maximum accuracy on every aspect of our collision repairs, from parts replacement to ding removal, painting, and refinishing. Additionally, we make the collision repair process easy by coordinating all insurance paperwork, car rentals, and shuttling to and from our shop.

At Gene Townsend Auto Body and Paint, we begin every collision repair with a free preliminary estimate. (Estimates may be revised once all damaged parts are removed and a more thorough assessment is conducted.) Once our estimate is approved, we order all the necessary parts and then pretest them to ensure a precision fit. Once we determine that the parts will work, we begin our comprehensive repair process. (We outline our 12-step process for major collision repairs here). As our auto body and paint specialists are some of the best in the field, we can be trusted to flawlessly repair or replace any parts, including damaged bumpers, grills, hoods, doors, sidings, trunk lids, tailgates, upholstery, windshields, and more. We never cut corners and, before any job is considered complete, we always perform a multi-point vehicle inspection and test drive. This inspection ensures that every vehicle we work on not only looks great, but also handles well and meets with the highest of safety standards. For additional assurance, all unified body, structural repair, and paint work is backed by a non-transferrable warranty.

With five-star marks on Yelp, an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and a reputation for exceptional work and superior customer service, Gene Townsend Auto Body and Paint is the best choice for collision repair in San Diego and East County.
