I have a 2005 infiniti G35x and i was in a recent accident involving a deer which caused quite a bit of damage to the passenger/ front side. After seeing how bad the damage was and realizing how much needed to be replaced, i knew it'd be a while before i got it back, each week i called to check on it and Nat gave me the status of my car and just kept me in the know about what was going on which was great. i was worried at one point about the paint maybe not matching up to the old paint, but A&R proved me wrong, and reassured me that i had been in good hands, the entire car looks incredible, like brand new. I cannot thank you guys at A&R enough!

Everything is great at A&R. Excellent job, friendly people to work with. I have been a very happy customer for 3 repair jobs in last 5 years!

Beautiful job done on my car. Twice. Sadly. But? Gorgeous work. I was assured the parts replaced were authentic Mazda parts. This is a first class body shop and I highly recommend. Thank you. Lara and Ken, Winsted.

Three months after I bought my 2013 Altima I was hit by an uninsured driver. I had never been in an accident and had no idea where to go. A & R came highly recommended and for good reasons. The moment I stepped in their office they put me at ease. Nat explained everything to me and dealt with my insurance co., set up a rental and assured me my car would look like new. He was true to his word, the team at A & R did a fantastic job. I cannot thank them enough




What a great and thorough job they did in smoothing out the sizable dent in my car from Sandy. It was in an awkward place on the car and you would never know I even had a scratch. They gave me back my car in better condition than when I dropped it off--buffed, cleaned, spotless! Nat was very nice and professional to deal with. I really appreciate they dealt with my insurance company, too.

I've being involved in two car accidents and both times I've taken my car to A&R. They've always run the extra mile with and for me. They always notice those little details that nobody does and fix them without extra charge. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!

My 2012 Honda CRV only 2 months after I purchased it was caught in a massive hail storm while I was in Colorado. The storm was so bad it completely damaged every bit of skin on the car, the top, hood, both sides and rear. My neighbor recommended A & R to me and I'm glad he did. Although they had to replace most of the skin on the car they did an excellent job. The car now looks as though it just came out of the show room. I don't know how they were able to fix it as well as they did but I am sure appreciative of their excellent work. I will definitely refer anyone to them and will use them again if I have the need.

I am writing to thank all of the folks at A&R Auto body for the excellent repair work performed on my 1985 Z28 Camaro. After my vehicle was hit in my driveway by a runaway car, I approached Randy Serkey, the owner of A&R Auto body. Randy and his wife worked with me to secure a repair estimate from the other party's insurance company. The insurance estimate came in low, much lower than the repairs would be to be done the proper way. The insurance company felt that the car was over 25 years old and wasn't worth very much, even though the car was in very good shape having been garaged and never driven in the winter, with no rust and 50K original miles. The staff worked diligently to secure a proper cost extimate to repair the vehicle. The staff at A&R and myself were never tiring for obtaining sources for the hard to find parts and a proper estimate for the repairs even though the time frame spread out to about 2 years. Finally, with all of the paperwork in place and parts available, the A&R team went to work on fixing the damage. As the repairs progressed, it was found that the tape stripes on the vehicle could not be purchased. Again A&R came through; with expertise of a local sign company/graphic artist who produced the stripes in their shop. With all the parts in place, the body buffed out, and paint and clear coat applied, I am once again proudly able to drive my 1985, Z28, T top, Camaro. Thank you to Randy, his wife, Nat, and all of the technicians at A&R for never giving up, for doing excellent work, and for giviing me my car back like new. Jack Tarter Torrington

My family and I have been going to A&R for many years now. Each time we take one of our cars in the staff is always so helpful and efficient. Having body work done on your car can be very stressful... the staff always makes us feel at ease and we always have confidence the job will be done to the highest degree of any expectations. I have recommended A&R to many friends, they always walked away with their cars in the best condition. My family and I feel very comfortable communicating our needs with any staff member who answers the phone at A&R, our family name is always remembered. We are so very grateful for all of their hard work and dedication over the years! Thank you, thank you!!! Best, Lindsay, Sheila, and Bob Boyer

They did a great job in fixing my car ! I am from New Milford Ct. I have beeen in Winsted for 12 yrs, but I never had to deal with an Auto body shop here before so I didn't know where to take it. So I asked around because where they towed it to was not a very professional place. I was very happy with the work they did. It looked very nice when I picked it up. They even wash and waxed it for me. Can't ask for more than that. Thanks, Guys


Always professional and the car looks like new! They had the parts in the shop before the insurance company okayed the repair. I made one call to them and they handled everything, including delivering the finished car to me.

I can't say enough about how professional and trustworthy the folks at A & R are. When someone crashed into my car that had never been in an accident before, I couldn't sleep worrying it would never be the same again. Then so many people pointed me toward A & R, and I didn't have a worry. My car was handed back to me looking better than ever - completely satisfied! Thank you Serkeys!


A & R Auto Body's service shines brightly through the hands of a very courteous, efficient and dependable staff. My recent repair was handled expertly by Nat LaPlante, Service Specialist, who was kind, patient, respectful and very knowledgeable. He was attentive and accommodating to my time-sensitive requests for the work which needed to be done. Thank you for your superior service and rest assured I'll make referrals to you.

A&R Autobody is more than just an autobody shop. They care for their customers and help them through the repair/insurance process which can be very difficult at times. A&R's quality of workmenship is second to none. I've seen work at other autobody shops that are approved by BMW, Audi and Mercedes. A&R's is far superior! I look at all the details. When you can't tell that a door has been totally replaced and looks like it just rolled out of the factory, you know that it was done right. A&R did just that with my vehicle. Thank you for restoring my vehicle to the original factory look and just as important GREAT customer service.

The best auto body shop I have ever been too!! My family and neighbors have been going to them for years. Their customer service is 100%, quality and timeliness of their work was amazing. Very honest and a pleasure to work with, highly recommended.

12 April 2012 I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at A&R for everything they did for me. Folks, this is the ONLY place to bring your vehicle for repair, that is if you care about your vehicle, and being treated like a VIP at the same time. I dealt with a hit and run at my residence from a delivery box truck. Knowing the company responsible did not make the task of dealing with the insurance company any easier. Lets just say that I was at my wits end with the whole convoluted process. Weeks of bickering with their insurance company got me nowhere. Then I talked to Nat, Joanne, and Randy at A&R, problem solved, and I mean immediately! They went to bat for me, and I was free from the process, they even arranged for the rental car while my truck was being repaired. The only thing I had to do was stop by, hand them the keys to the rental and drive away my perfect red Ranger. Thanks again everyone at A&R, Bill Blouin

A&R is first class all the way, starting with excellent customer service and it continues to the body shop - where my car is repaired and returned to me in perfect condition. Thanks to everyone for always doing a great job.
