Default Any reccomendations for a body shop in the Haverhill area?

I was recently rear-ended... only cosmetic damage to the rear bumper cover and a smudge on my prodrive exhaust.

I am looking for a shop that could do the body work and also check out the clunking noise i now notice at slow speeds (around 20mph). I am pretty sure this has only been happening since being rear ended.

Hopefully there is no mechanical damage, but i want to have it checked out by someone who knows their stuff.

Thanks guys. I assume you both have had good experiences with each shop. Insurance is paying for the repair, but commerce only pays out $37 per hour for body work. I will have to show my quote from the adjuster and see if it will work. I would like to go with someone local and trustworthy.

Shepard's in Nbpt is good, I went to school with his son. Nice family. They are expensive, but they do very good work.

Body work isn't cheap.

I went by river street auto body today and made an appointment for a repair. Now i need to fight with my insurance company to try to get a rental car for a few days. I do not have rental coverage, but the person at the shop said that becasue i was not at fault, then i should be entitled to a free rental. We will see.

It looks like commerce is giving me enough cash for a used bumper. I hope it looks right when it is fixed.

If you have Commerce and you go with a Commerce approved shop, then the body shop will just direct bill Commerce for any supplemental amount and you don't need to worry about labor rates or any other nonsense.
