They did an amazing job on my car! I am more than pleased with the work they have done! Brad was great to work with an amazing with customer service! If anyone needs body work done I would highly recommend these guys! Thank you so much!


Highly recommend these guys! They do great work! Car came out better than new, and I love that they repaired our bumper rather than just replacing it! My wife’s plastic (polyurethane) bumper had a bad gash and paint scrape. The price was great and the repair was excellent!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Brad and Jim at Gold Standard. From the estimate all the way to pickup, they made everything easy and painless. The work they did on my 2014 Ford Escape is impeccable and it looks brand new! Highly recommend as the best body shop in Hickory!

The owner (Jim Bright) has been a friend of mine for a few years and done excellent body work on several of my vehicles. I live 2 counties away, but this is the only body shop that I will take my vehicles when they need work.

The quality of work and customer service is second to none. I have had several vehicles repaired here and both look better than new. I would highly recommend this shop.

I compared 3 body shops and went to this one because it was the cheapest. The work was done great, plus they scrubbed some extra small scratches and cleaned the interior! These guys are real passionate, great service. I totally recommend.
