Although it is not in your direct area I would highly suggest Gunn Collision off of IH 10 and Woodstone. For years we took our cars to Caliber Collision (Bandera /410 and Culebra /410) and the quality of their work has failed us to the point that I said no more $$$ from State Farm or us.

Several months ago our Son's 2006 Accord Coupe was hit from the rear by a Drunk Exotic Dancer. The damage was not too bad and I decided to have him take it to Gunn. They did a FANTASTIC job and the Service Advisor was always available if we had any questions. They offer a lifetime warranty on their work which is what you want. *I'm not 100% sure but I think there is a Gunn Collision on the NE Side off of 35 /Judson . I drive a 2001 Silverado which I have pampered since I bought it and it shows. If I ever need to take it to a Body Shop it will be Gunn.

The only drawback is that there is no Car Rental Company on site (IH 10). Enterprise is betweeen Gunn's location and Wurzbach Rd.

*By the way the Girl had what it takes to dance but she didn't have Auto Insurance.

+1 for Gunn Collision. Had some work done there and was very satisfied with the results. They do have a NE location @ 35/Judson, as well as one off of 410 near the airport.

I'm not sure the location across from the airport is still in operation. That one has been looking kind of abandoned recently -- never see any activity when I pass by.

WOW- This is GREAT Feedback for Gunn Collision. I am very glad that you all had a GREAT Experience just like we did.

Hopefully we (any of us) will not have to use them.

Just for your information when SAPD (The Officer was GREAT by the way) checked the other car for Insurance it came up that she also had a State Farm Policy. Well the information was not current. This was no fault of SAPD as the database is from the State. State Farm will do their best to get the money out of the involved party along with our deductible. That I'm sure will not happen based upon past accidents.

I wish more was done to protect us who carry Auto Insurance and somehow punish those that do not. Insurance is /can be affordable so in my opinion there is no excuse for not having it. It's all about priorities I guess.

As an adjuster for Progressive Insurance (4 years), you would not believe how many people are driving without insurance. I believe the last statistic I saw was over 40% uninsured on the streets.

In your opinion what can States do to MAKE folks get coverage? There are a lot of folks who get it to obtain their Annual Vehicle Inspection and Registration and then cancel it.

A few years ago San Antonio came up with an Ordinace that stated your car /truck would be towed if you were stopped and found to be without Insurance and of course the vehicle would be impounded. The folks were looking at the towing and impoundment fees along with obtaining Insurance before geting the vehicle back. To the best of my knowlegde it went by the wayside. Too many people complained that it was a burden on those folks who had a tough time affording it. All they had to get was Liability. It sure wasn't a burden for them to buy their beer and meat for BBQ'S. ( That statement is based on knowledge of folks I knew and that friends knew of.)

What about the burden of honest People like us who pay over $350.00/ month (3 vehicles including a 19 year old who gets driver training /defensive driving and good grade discounts) to State Farm and that's with as many discounts that we can get inluding our Home Coverage. His rates are based upon my 2001 Silverado even though his primary vehicle is a 2006 Honda Accord Coupe. I did my reseach (Insurance Rates) on that car, as far as rates before we bought it.
Oh, another break we get is since my Wife has already retired her Mazda Tribute is rated on Pleasure Only. But as I said it's still over $350.00 /month.
