I've come here twice. The first time was a very pleasant experience. Great work and friendly staff. The second time, however, I was not so thrilled. The women at the front desk was very polite and the estimate was time efficient. I only needed to get an estimate to satisfy my insurance company but could not afford the $500 deductible so I planned on not driving the damaged vehicle while I saved up the cash. When the estimate was done and I picked up the car (which I had to do regardless of repairing or not) the man presenting me with the results was incredibly pushy and rude to me. I left feeling insulted and humiliated about my situation. Needless to say when I did have the extra $500 I went to another auto body repair shop.
TOO BAD! – nu-way body and fender is not the same since
KADEL'S bought it,don"t let them fool you into
thinking they are about quality,when they are all
about quantity and numbers.The entire office
staff are different people.Nu-way was built on
very hi quality work,especially on european cars.
KADEL'S generally does poor quality,high
production work,don't be fooled into thinking your car
will get the same special attention that nu-way was
known for in the past,because you will be

Great service – They did a really great job with my Toyota and the customer service was great! I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Awesome paint match – My Nissan 350Z was involved in a hit-and-run that totalled the passenger fender. I went to see them on Wednesday, they took the car in on Monday and had it back to me on Friday. I was concerned about the paint matching as the car is painted Arctic White and is a three stage pearl paint. They matched it perfectly. I am very impressed with the work they did. You can not tell that the fender was replaced. I am very picky about my cars and I would not hesitate to use Nu-Way again.
More than "just another bodyshop"! – After being rear-ended by a drunk driver who fled the seen, I now had the agonizing job of deciding who was going to fix my vehicle. Because my truck is almost new and I plan on keeping it a long time, I gave this decision a lot of thought. I chose Nu-Way and I'm VERY glad I did. The professional staff, attention to detail, and fast service was incredible !! They even took care of all the insurance paperwork, and I could not be happier with how the truck looks! I would like to take this time to thank the staff at Nu-Way (again) for the incredible job they did on my truck, and would highly recommend this shop to anyone who truly appreciates professionalism.
Unfortunate circumstances, Great outcome – Someone keyed the fender of my week old black Subaru, I had read good reviews about Nu Way and decided to give them a shot. They did excellent work, there was no overspray or any other noticable imperfections compared to the factory finish. I am very particular when it comes to auto care and Nu Way did a great job!
The staff is friendly and I like supporting a local business, who acutally cares about their workmanship.
Editorial Review – Nu-Way Body & Fender Works specializes in auto collision repair including paint and body work for all makes and models.
I LOVE Nu-Way! – I had a great experience at Nu-way. I stopped in for an estimate and they actually ended up keeping my car that day. They took care of all the insurance business and were really only concerned with me and my happiness with their work. They went out of their way to give me a ride home and also went way above and beyond to make my car look great, way better than before the accident! The two women in the front office, the manager, Jim, and all of the body shop employees were so helpful and very talented when it comes to making cars look great. I just referred a good friend to them and would not hesitate to do so again. Highly Recommend!
Would do business again – I've had a couple of cars repaired here and have had outstanding results. I'm comparing NuWay's work to the way the car looked before the accident. In their paint work there is no orange peel, or paint ripple, like one would see at Maaco for instance. I know of several other satisfied customers too. My Lincoln LS looks like new.
Mike & Pam Burback; Burback Motors, Inc. – We have been using NuWay almost exclusively for over 30 years, both professionally and for our own vehicles. We highly recommend them for the quality of work and attention to detail with all aspects of auto body repair. This is a GREAT locally owned business. As an auto repair shop, we are constantly referring our clients to NuWay and we are not aware of anyone not being completely satisfied with their relationship with NuWay.
