Avoid this place at all cost or it will cost you. Was in an accident on Friday morning and was taken to the hospital so my car was towed by these rip off artists, I called Friday after 3pm to find out more about hte location and cost and Ted the guy who runs the towing area told me the total was $168.00 and I need to pick it up before 5pm I could not get there before 5pm so he said I can't pick it up on the weekend stop by Monday. And Today Monday I went to pick my car up but he could not find my ticket after looking over the same pile multiple times so he decided he'll make a new ticket, the total was now $353.00 when I reminded him of what he said, he stated I have to add the $35 per day storage charge which is 2 days $70, so he decided he'll make another one, Tow $125 1st 3 days $75 1 Day @ $27 plus tax plus an extra 3% because I'm paying by CC. $254.56. He added 4 days in total just to raise the price up, I just paid it and took my car, this guy Ted is giving this business a bad rep. And everyone should know what to expect when they get there.

Worst Body Shop

Universe Auto Body Center in Baychester, Bronx is the WORST body shop in the industry. They are very unprofessional, very uncourteous, and nothing short of a very long nightmare, to say the least. If you are even thinking of having work done in this place, STOP. If you have a vehicle being repaired at this shop, now is the time to get up and go get your car OUT OF THERE. Ana, the secretary and Richie, the alcoholic, nasty manager are a tag team that are nothing short of undesirable. They will lie to you everyday of the week, 24 hours a day if they have to in order to cover up what looks like some serious embezzling from their part. Good luck to the owners!
