Why Choose a Local Auto Body Shop    

In a corporate driven world, supporting local businesses is not only important to their success, but as a customer you receive exceptional service. The auto body industry is no different than the local businesses in your community. CID Auto Body and Paint has proudly been serving San Marcos for 15 years as an independently owned body shop.

Body shops that operate under a conglomerate have specific rules and tight restrictions they are required to abide by that may not always be in the customer’s favor. A local auto body shop like CID Auto Body and Paint puts the customer first and repairs the vehicle according to its needs as opposed to what the business dictates. At our San Marcos auto body shop, we put customer safety and satisfaction above the repair industry standards so we can get the job done right.

For most, the search for San Marcos body shops begins as soon as an accident occurs, which can lead to poor decision making simply because of the urgency of the situation.

Timely, Professional, and Dependable Collision Services   

Nothing is worse than running late for work or being on the way to pick up the kids from school, only to get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. You can almost always feel the tension in the air while drivers attempt patience but inevitably drivers become more uptight causing mindless reactions and car accidents.


Car accidents don’t always happen during gridlock traffic, but they always happen at the worst times. If they happened at a convenient time, we wouldn’t refer to them as an ‘accident.’ Dealing with the many different components after an auto accident can create confusion, cause stress, frustration, and uncertainty. Your life can drastically change in a matter of minutes and at times, it might feel like nobody is willing to provide any empathetic support or direction.

The team at CID Auto Body and Paint may not understand completely what you’re going through, but we can understand the extent of your vehicle’s damage so you can leave the repairs up to us while you tend to more important areas of your life.

If you’ve never been involved in an auto accident, you have probably realized that there is a lot of items on your to-do list that you need to address. It’s safe to say that being involved in an auto accident goes well beyond the collision, which is why it’s crucial you choose an auto body shop that you can trust to go through the claim process with you professionally and timely. Fortunately, our San Diego collision shop will do more than meet your expectations — we’ll surpass your expectations in collision repair as well as customer service.

The Collision Repair Process

No auto accident occurs in the exact same way, which means no collision repair is handled the same way either. There are many factors that can impact the direction of the repair process. While we approach every repair with care and patience, we ask that you be advised that every repair is unique but we will provide the same honest customer service that you can depend on.

Prior to any repair, an estimate needs to be written. The repair estimate is a projection of how much the repairs will cost which serves a few different purposes:

  1. Depending on the year, make, and model of the damaged vehicle, the estimate will determine if the vehicle is a total loss.
  2. The estimate tells the insurance company the cost of repairs so they will set aside funds to pay for the repairs.
  3. Allows the body shop to properly schedule the vehicle for repairs in a timely manner.
  4. Acts as a resource for all parties to determine what was damaged once the tear-down process has started during repairs.

Once a claim is filed with your insurance company, it’s up to you to choose a local collision shop where you wish to have your vehicle repaired. Your insurance company cannot choose a shop for you, despite any attempt of persuasion, you have the freedom to select the best auto body shop for you.

Windshield and Glass Replacement Services

If you think about it, our windshields take a beating. When you’re cruising down the highway at a high rate of speed, especially on a regular basis, your auto glass is bound to catch a rock and other road debris. Not to mention, the damage the weather can cause on your vehicle windows has the potential of being fairly significant. Broken tree limbs from high winds and hail storms are common sources of shattered auto glass.

Of course, there are other ways your auto glass can be damaged to the point that it requires replacement. Whether your windshield has a superficial crack or the glass has shattered completely, our professional technicians at our auto repair shop in San Diego have the tools and the knowledge, and the precision to complete the job right and fast so you can get back on your way.
