Norths Reader Award



 "I would say that North's Autobody Collision went beyond what we expected from an auto body shop. After the deer incident four days later, they made us feel like family. Their level of concern for their customers is way above average!!!!"

  • Sharon and Richard Anscomb


"I wanted you all to know how impressed I was with the work done to my Audi A4. Although most bodywork is done due to unfortunate events such as accidents or rust, your team makes the process quick and easy. Not to mention your work is the best I've ever seen. From bringing the Audi in for an estimate, chatting personally with Fred on the work that needed to be done, to picking the car up less than a week later, to say I'm only impressed is an understatement. I was nervous when I first brought the Audi in as it's my first new car, the paint was chipped right down to the metal, rusted in certain spots and I knew it was a difficult colour to match, but I'm happy to have my car back, looking better than the day I bought it thanks to North's. I will most definitely return for body work for any of my vehicles and plan to refer your company to anyone I know. Thanks for the amazing work!"

  • Megan T.


"I would like you to know how pleased I was with the service I received from the time I called to book my appointment for the estimate of damage to my BMW Z3. I met with Ken who took my car to the shop to go over the damage and point out what was needed to bring my car back to its original state before the accident. He was very thorough and pointed out everything that needed to be done to the car. He also pointed out that if there was any damage not readily visible, that it would be included when the repairs were being done. I returned home and waited for my appointment to be arranged. I received a call and a date was set for the 18th of October. I went out to the office and explained that I was leaving town on holiday on the 13th. I was very pleased when you told me I could deliver the car on the 12th. This was definitely a plus and made the process much easier. I called the office when I returned and they informed me that my car would be ready at 3:00 pm on Friday, which it was. I would like to thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled the entire process. I would definitely recommend your shop for quality of the finished product, excellent service and excellent staff. Thank you once again."

  • David Maddock


"Although accidents are unfortunate, it is very much appreciated when a business makes the process go so smoothly. I have repeatedly said to my friends and work colleagues what a wonderful job you did not only to repair my vehicle (and clean and vacuum!) but the service and friendliness was an example to other businesses how things should and ought to be."

  • Renette Muise


"I would like to say that the quality of work and professionalism of CSN North's Autobody Collision Centre is first rate. Repairs were timely, staff were professional, pleasant, and efficient, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. CSN North's Autobody Collision Centre, in my opinion, is top notch!"

  • Mary Smeltzer


"I called an insured to follow up on repairs and she wanted to pass along that she has never seen such a well organised body shop and that they did an amazing job on her repairs - she was very happy! :)"
