  • Offers complementary services
  • Excellent customer care


  • Small team size
  • Repairs can take relatively longer

The Brookston Body Shop is an excellent choice for those who don’t want to be treated like just another customer. Although their repairs may take longer to complete compared to other services, they make up for it with their stellar complementary services. 

The Brookston Body Shop offers a range of services from paint and body decals to frame full body repairs. This made it convenient for us to schedule all repairs in one place.

Moreover, we appreciate that they offer free towing, detail, and estimates with every job. They even provide customer pickups and dropoffs for their customers, which is a small gesture that goes a long way.

Another thing we like about Brookston Body Shop is their patience in explaining exactly what needs to happen to your car. It made us feel involved and informed of the entire process.

We think that their total car care service is ideal for people who want their car’s collision recovery to go smoothly and not be left in the dark throughout.

The only downside is that their relatively small team size makes their repairs take significantly longer compared to other services. You’d have to manage your expectations regarding how quickly your car can return to the road.

  • Variety of services
  • Relatively quick repair times


  • Appointment based

Uptown Automotive has one of the quickest repair times for a collision center in Houston. This doesn’t mean they work recklessly or care little for your car. Quite the opposite!

Their streamlined repair process allows them to cut down on repair times and ensure vehicle organization in the shop. 

What we also like about Uptown Automotive is the variety of their services that each go into your car repair. It made us feel that our car was getting the attention it needed.

We were also surprised by their transparent estimate and billing process. You’re updated frequently about your car’s repair and given an itemized bill outlining everything that went into repairing your car. 

Another thing that we like about Uptown Automotive’s services is that they also offer lifetime warranties for paint and body repairs. And, for mechanical repairs, up to a two-year warranty on parts. 

A downside of Uptown Automotive is that it can be quite a hassle to arrange for your car to enter their shop for repairs. 

If you’re looking for a collision center that can repair your car quickly without being blindsided by the costs, then Uptown Automotive is ideal!

  • Transparent estimates
  • Excellent customer care


  • Relatively fewer services

JJ Auto Body is primarily a collision recovery center, so each of its services is designed to help your car get back on the road sooner. 

This doesn’t mean that they don’t offer the usual staples of other body shops. They still do, just in a more limited capacity. Compared to other services, they focus on the aspects needed for immediate collision recovery.

Another thing that we disliked about their services is that the time it takes to repair a car is considerably longer compared to other services. 

What we liked about JJ Auto Body is that their entire staff and technician team are professional and friendly as they work on your repairs. 

Moreover, they’re able to offer more concise and transparent estimates, because of their focus on collision recovery. This is especially useful for those who want to receive quick and accurate estimates when comparing different services.

That’s what we enjoy about their services, it’s very direct. If you need car repairs as soon as possible, then JJ Auto Body is an ideal option. However, if you’re looking for a complete repair to every part of your car, then you should consider other services.

  • Extensive car repair services
  • Experienced technicians


  • Estimates are not as transparent

Collision Motor Specialist made our list primarily because they offer one of the widest ranges of car repair services. As a collision recovery center, they’re the closest thing you can get to return your car to factory condition.

So if you’re looking for a collision recovery center that can cover nearly everything under the sun for your car, then Collision Motor Specialist is what you need.

This comes with a drawback though. Compared to the other services on our list, their estimates and quotes are not as transparent. 

They work with over a dozen insurance providers to ensure that you can process your insurance claims with ease. We love that they take a more active role in helping you process your insurance claims.

As this can be one of the most frustrating and time-consuming parts of collision recovery, the fact that they help you throughout speaks volumes. 

Another thing that we loved about Collision Motor Specialist is their experienced team of technicians who work in their auto paint shop and car repair service.

The biggest thing that surprised us is that they even offer additional certified services for Audi, Tesla, and Porsche cars. This comes as a huge step up compared to other services.

  • Wide variety of services
  • Expert technicians


  • Takes considerably longer for repairs.

Best Collision Center provides some of the most extensive car repair services in Houston compared to the other entries in this list. 

One of the main appeals of Best Collision Center is the variety of its services. They cover almost every possible problem that your car may have after a collision.

Another thing that stood out to me is that they’re an accredited collision repair shop for Ford and Mazda. This makes Best Collision Center an ideal collision repair facility if you own a Ford or Mazda. 

What we disliked about their services are the repair times. While it’s beneficial to ensure the safety of everyone involved, if you have minor damages and it’s fixed as soon as possible, then we recommend choosing another service.

Moreover, their pricing and estimates are entirely dependent on the extent of the damages to your car, so it’s difficult to gauge. 

In any case, we still think that you will get your money’s worth with Best Collision Center. And, if you have sports cars in need of repairs, then it’s one of the best collision centers for you.
