Located 30 miles northeast of San Diego, beautiful Escondido is one of the oldest cities in San Diego county.

Any auto body and paint concern you need, CID Auto Body and Paint near Escondido can help. Below is a very brief summary of what we do and how we can serve the people of Escondido.


Much like the dentist, the reason you call an auto body shop near Escondido is because you’ve been in a car accident that has caused some sort of auto body and paint damage to your vehicle. You are most likely distressed and thrown out of whack as you have to make alternative arrangements for transportation.


CID Auto Body and Paint near Escondido works with most insurance companies, so you won’t have to worry about the details of your auto body repair.

  • Rental car. If your insurance company allows for a rental car, we’ll get you connected to a rental car company.
  • Estimate. Once we assess the vehicle for damage, we’ll do an estimate. Keep in mind this estimate can change if we find more damage hidden once we begin to dismantle your car. However, you’re only responsible for your deductible if you have full coverage auto insurance.
  • Repairs. Once we assess the damage, we’ll order parts and schedule repairs. The time line depends on how quickly we can get the parts, other clients we are currently working with, and the extent of the damage to your vehicle. However, insurance will cover the cost of a rental for as long as it takes us to repair your vehicle.
  • Return. When your car’s auto body has been restored as well as any necessary auto paint done, you’ll get your car back as good as new.

CID Auto Body and Paint near Escondido focuses on the customer. We do our best to work quickly, efficiently, and effectively, so you can have your car back as soon as possible.

Driving along the freeways in Escondido exposes your car to flying rocks that chip your windshield.

Sure, removing dents from your car is mostly for aesthetic purposes. But you work hard for your car, and for many, their car is an extension of themselves.
