What our clients say

With 70 years of high-quality automotive collision repair, we had many great customers. Here’s what a few had to say.

Kept in the Loop

I would highly recommend CSN Reliable to anyone who needs auto body work done to their vehicle. Curtis and his team are very professional. Right from the initial call to booking an estimate to picking my vehicle, I was kept in the loop and was also provided a courtesy vehicle. 5-star service!

Justin Ethier

A Perfect Paint Job

ICBC front end repair, very professional team, easy/hassle free to work with. Looks like a perfect paint job. 4 stars instead of 5 for this repair as an aftermarket replacement bumper was used that had some raised plastic ridges and wasn’t as high quality as OEM, but not sure if ICBC is supposed to cover OEM replacement parts or not.

Excellent Customer Care

Needing an Auto Body I chose CSN Reliable. They do excellent work. They have excellent customer care and their work is better than new. The shop is spotless and efficient…which reflects their excellent workmanship and their end product. This Auto shop.is one of the best in the CV area.

Quality of Work is Outstanding

I’ve had the misfortune of dealing with other autobody shops in town before – in saying that, the folks at Reliable are by far the most professional & friendly I’ve ever dealt with. My truck was repaired far sooner than I ever expected and the quality of work is outstanding. Thanks guys! You came recommended to me & I’ll definitely be recommending you to anyone that needs work done.
