  1. Thank you Signal Collision for fixing my car after I hit that deer. You have made an extremely bad experience much better. I never thought my car would look as good as new but it looks better. I can’t thank you enough for helping me.

  2. I would like to commend you and your staff for the amazing care and attention you gave me concerning the repairs to my car. You communicated clearly to me what to expect and followed through above and beyond my expectations. You managed to get the parts in before the long weekend and fix my car before I went away for an extended leave. I was totally blessed and felt that you and your staff genuinely cared for me and I wasn’t just a number. Thank you again and I will definitely recommend you to others. May God prosper your business
