Just call Ron at Chipmasters directly and say you're on RFD

Help me
I went to Ron a few years ago when a coworker scratched up my mom's sentra. It was around $360 dollars to fix it. The lady who hit my car paid for it.

Referred 3 cars in March and April this year to Chip masters. All are very pleased with the results. I also went to Ron to paint a couple of body kits which I'm extremely satisfied with.

I had the pleasure and privilege to deal with Ron from Chipmaster a bit ago and wanted to share my incredibly positive experience.

Earlier in the year, I returned to my vehicle at a mall prking lot on a Sunday afternoon to find a large gash and scratches across my front bumper. A not so friendly fellow mall patron must have done the damaged while pulling in to park or pulling out. As you would expect, no courtesy note was left.

I began thinking about fixing the damage or leaving it for a later date. A few months prior, I came across Chipmaster on Red Flag Deals and heard some good things from people who dealt with Ron. I contacted Ron by email on behalf of a friend at the time not expecting much. To my surprise, I received a response shortly after with an estimate and answers to all our questions. My friend chose to hold off at the time and we left it at that.

Following my personal incident, I emailed Ron Sunday evening with pictures of the damage requesting an estimate. To my surprise, Ron got back to me shortly after the same Sunday evening with a very reasonable estimate and answers to all my questions. I was quoted at least double at other shops I followed up with. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. Where else would you find a place to provide you prompt responses to your questions via email on a Sunday evening? Talk about customer service.

Following some quick correspondences back and forth, I’ve decided to go with Chipmaster. Ron was more than accommodating with when to bring in the vehicle. We agreed to have me drop it off the following week. A few days later, I had to reschedule last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. Again, Ron was pleasant, professional and accommodating working around my schedule which is usually not that flexible. We rescheduled for the following Wednesday.

Ron opens his doors at 6 AM and finishes late so I was able to bring my vehicle to him around 7:00 AM. I initially pulled up to Ron’s old location on the West side of Laidlaw. I did not realize they already moved to their new location at 1 Laidlaw on the East side right across the street where Maaco collision was previously.

If you plan to visit Chipmaster, keep the following in mind. They were previously located at 8 Laidlaw right next to another shop called Street Extreme sharing the same parking lot and building. There is a different Ron working there. Since the end of January, Street Extreme took over the adjacent unit Chipmaster previously had. *As you can imagine, having two Ron’s in adjacent shops (although they don’t look anything alike) may have caused some confusion for customers in the past (me included) and it might continue to do so for those who are not aware Chipmaster has moved. I’ve dealt with both Ron’s and they are good people from my experience. However, if you are looking to deal with Chipmaster, make sure you are dealing with the right Ron at his new shop at 1 Laidlaw.

When I first dropped off the car, Ron was kind enough to give me a lift to where I needed to be. He appeared personable, professional and genuinely enjoying what he does. He advised the vehicle will be ready the next morning. I’m normally very nervous about leaving my vehicle overnight for repairs or with someone else but I felt more than comfortable and worry free leaving it in Ron’s capable hands. The new shop is spacious and clean (although they were in the midst of moving). It sits on its own with ample parking unlike many of the smaller shops you might come across which are all piled on top of one another in an industrial stretch. First impressions were good all around.

As promised, Ron emailed me Thursday morning to advise the vehicle was ready. I made my way there in the afternoon. As I approached the shop, my vehicle parked by the front door. It looked washed and detailed both inside and out. Quite honestly, it looked better than the day I picked it up brand new 4 years ago. I inspected the repair up closely for a few minutes before going in and the work looked terrific. Ron also took the liberty to care of stone chips the bumper was riddled with from day to day driving without me asking for it.

I went in, found Ron in the shop, went outside with him to inspect the vehicle and answer a few additional questions. I parted with Ron as an incredibly happy customer. Even after the encounter, I had some follow up questions and Ron he continued to be prompt, courteous and eager to please. As you we all know, the quality of repair should be judged by how the repairs hold up over time. It has been about 2 months since the work was complete. I had to the opportunity to test out the repair by doing quite a bit of driving in heavy, rough and incredibly cold/snowy road conditions. Everything is holding up incredibly well and looks exactly how it first did when I picked it up. The work is guaranteed and although many other shops promise the same but rarely deliver, I am confident Ron stands behind his promises if the need ever arises.

By my high standards and having firsthand knowledge of the auto and insurance industries, Chipmaster definitely delivered for me. I can honestly say this was one the best customer service experiences I ever had. Ron helped me turn a frustrating experience into a more than pleasant one and I applaud him for it. *I will be directing everyone else I know to Ron to take care of their vehicles. I highly recommend Chipmaster and Ron for anyone considering paying him a visit or shooting him a note. You will not be disappointed.

(My applogies for the lengthy review but I feel this would have been useful for me prior to making my decision).
