Complaint: I went to Almost Anything Auto Painting of a quality paint job on my truck for a price tag of $5000. However, the final results were terrible. The preparation before paint was not sanded, nor performed properly. As imperfections were painted over. The paint has excessive Orange peel and makes my vehicle look like second hand junk. Overspray was on the headlights and the masking job was sub-standard. Additionally, a new dent was in my Tailgate and painted over. The paint on my Door Handles is destroyed due to lack of taping. Parts of the vehicle were left unpainted. Of course, the Tailgate damage did not happen a I was blamed by ***** for the paint quality issues. Hence, the entire vehicle must be stripped and sanded which is not included. The side panels of my Truck actually look worse than the original paint job! However, ***** continues to reverse the blame on the customer!
Desired Settlement: I paid $5000 for a quality paint job, but got a $1500 **** coat paint job that I could have got at a low end paint shop. As a result, my vehicle looks like garbage and will require another paint shop to salvage. I don't think Auto Anything should charge top rate prices for low unskilled quality!
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/06/30) */ Contact Name and Title: ***** ******* Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: *****@Almost-Everything.com I apologized to the customer and returned his vehicle to him. We did not charge for the paint job. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 7, 2015/06/30) */ 6-30-15 Sent via email: Hello ******* Yesterday, the owner (*****) from Auto Anything Painting reached out to me in effort to resolve BBB Complaint Case# XXXXXXXX. He was extremely apologetic for not meeting my expectations and proposed to settle the dispute without arbitration. Hence, I accepted *****'s offer to not pay the remaining balance on the $5000 estimate and use the money for rework at the paint shop of my choice. I accepted the vehicle as-is and was politely given the keys, apology and handshake. ***** was genuinely concerned about my satisfaction as a customer. Working in product development, I understand that all project don't come out as planned. Therefore, I consider my claim resolved and would like for the BBB to expunge or document the case as a positive outcome. Thank you for taking the time to resolve my claim. Have a Wonderful Day! ******* ****** Mechanical Engineer

Complaint: This paint shop took my time and a considerable amount of my money then delivered a sloppy, careless, incorrect product instead of was agreed to. On 2-26-14 I dropped of my Chrysler 300 to ***** , the owner of Almost Everything Auto, and signed a work order for body repair and paint. Then on 3-17-14 I went to pick up my Chrysler to find that the front bumper was incomplete. They painted the majority of the front bumper but excluded shooting the bottom side of the bumper with paint. Also on the rear bumper there are areas that faild to get paint onto them. Further more a few dents that were agreed in writing to be repaired with body work are still present on my car with the new paint over them. Lastly; on my chrome wheels, in the engine bay, and on areas of the glass windowsÂ haveÂ paint overspray k n them that should have been prevented and is now going to cost me more time and money to correct. When I presented these problems and concerns to the manager excuses and refusal to remedy were expressed back to me.
Desired Settlement: I am seeking a refund for the dents and paint areas that I paid for and were not treated as well as compensation for the cost of cleaning all the overspray that should have been prevented.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/04/02) */ Here's our response to BBB Case ********* ******* ***** 3/31/2014Shop receives letter from BBB with customer complaints about overspray in engine compartment and on wheels, unrepaired dents and paint missing on bottom of bumpers. We left a message for the customer asking him to contact us so that we can understand and hopefully resolve these issues. Prior to receiving the BBB letter, we were not aware of the customer's concerns about overspray or dents and we believed that we had completed all of the work that the customer had contracted us to do. We are happy to clean any overspray on the wheels or in the engine bay and to fix any dents that we contracted to fix but may have neglected. The shop masks the engine bay and wheels prior to paint so there should not be overspray in these areas. However it is common for there to be dust that is generated during the pre-paint sanding process to get on and in the car including in the engine compartment & on the wheels. This is usually removed during detailing but the customer requested to pick-up car "as-is," prior to detailing and understood that detailing had not been performed. So we believe it is likely that there is dust in these areas. The customer did raise the issue that he wanted paint on areas under the car on the bottoms of the bumpers. In this case, we had explained to the customer before the vehicle was painted that there was additional cost to paint the bumpers off the car in order to get paint on the areas that would be underneath the car and inaccessible when the bumpers were installed. The customer declined this work due to the additional cost. We reminded the customer that he had declined this work when he raised the issue again after work was completed. 4/1/2014Customer returned our call. He said that he is not interested in getting fixes for any of his complaints, he just wants a financial settlement. He has not yet specified how much he is looking for. I asked customer to return with car so that I could understand the complaints. Customer agreed to return at his convenience. When we are able to inspect vehicle we can determine if warranty or refund can be applied. Customer's warranty provides for repair of defects due to Almost Everything's workmanship or materials during the warranty period and Almost Everything stands by our warranty and workmanship. Please see before & after photos and work orders, attached. Please note that customer procured his own parts and installed them himself. Customer also came to the shop and removed lights & trim from vehicle. Customer re-installed lights & trim after retrieving the vehicle. ***** ******* Almost Everything Car Paint, Auto Body & Collision Repair XXX-XXX-XXXX www.AutoBodyFremont.com
