    I have a 13 yr old car which has some body damage where i scraped it against a piller in a tight parking garage. I have a high deductible and dont want to file a claim. Want to get it done from a body shop which will do it for cheap - dont care if they report the fix or anything. Meaning - not trying to hide the incident , just want to get it done for cheap without an insurance claim.
    Any recommendations?

    You are smart to do it that way. We had a situation where we got a pillar with a car rental while our car was being repaired for a minor accident.

    Geico increased our rates by $2k (in total) until I noticed, on a $600 repair (and I think that was cascades body shop).

    We did not know we could have just paid for it on our own, out of pocket!

    That was an expensive lesson!

    I got some work done at cascades autobody. I don't know if they qualify as "cheap", but I was impressed with the result, their work was pretty good! I did pay for it myself, and did not file a claim.

    I have never used them but the owner is a former co-worker of mine. They do it all - nuts and bolts to custom.

    I learnt that lesson a couple years back. Same situation - pillar/car - but it was my car. It didn't look like much to me but they ended up replacing the entire tail end, door and because of the door a million other things. Total bill 2800!! It was Platinum Auto Body!
