“Picked up my Equinox the other day after a little fender bender. They had cleaned the outside and inside. Felt like a new vehicle. Awesome job.”

Karen B.

“Bessette’s did an excellent job at repairing my front bumper and grille. They went above and beyond by completely detailing the inside and outside of our car after repairing it.”
Roger R.
“Great service with a friendly atmosphere. My car looked like a new car when I picked it up. Would recommend and use them again.”
Diane C.
“Flawless service, friendly and knowledgeable staff that goes the extra step to make you feel like you're more than just another customer.”
Joe L.
“I've had several vehicles fixed here over the years. The workmanship is always top quality. Highly recommend…”
Chris B.
“Very friendly and professional. Any questions I had they took the time to explain and did not rush. The owner handled my claim and even gave me an envelope for my keys to drop in the drop box just in case I wanted to drop my car off after hours. My car was done when they said it would be. I am very pleased with the work and they even washed and vacuumed it! Definitely recommend.”
Sylvia L.
“I have been taking my cars to Bessette's for 25 years.... I have had multiple car/deer accidents, as well as a few vehicle collisions, so they have seen me a lot. We are always happy with the quality of the repair as well as how we're treated. We've found no reason to try any other body repair shop!”
Georgette A.
"Bessette's was very kind and helpful during a really stressful time dealing with my insurance claim, especially Cindy in the office. But no matter who answered when I called, everyone was very patient and dealing with me."

Sharon A.
