Auto body portland Oregon

Hey there TT, bad news. Left work the other day and pancaked the passenger side of my truck up against the not so nice ice wall in the meadows parking lot. It was pure sheet ice I got on top of that assisted my ever so delicate slide into the ice wall.
So I'm in need if recommendations of auto body shops in the Portland Oregon area.
I'd like to get it fixed up by the 30th of December but I'd imagine that might be a far shot or even out of the question. So if anyone knows of a fast shop that somehow does quality work it would be great!
Pictures soon.
Damage isn't terrible but all passenger panels have damage.

My wife rubbed my truck against a snow bank a couple years ago when I was town. Got both doors and the bed side. Dents and paint damage. I think it was out of the body shop in about a week. I think they were able to straighten the bed and one door skin, the other door skin needed to be replaced, and then they repainted that whole side of the truck

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

No input, expect to say that our trip to Portland this year was great. You live in an amazing part of the country.

I live on the west side of Portland and have used Kuni Cadilac/BMW for all my body work over the past 25 years. I've never owned a Cadilac or BMW, but they work on very expensive vehicles on a regular basis, so quality of work has to be good. Will you be claiming it on your insurance or paying out-of-pocket? I'm not sure about their prices, because my insurance covered each time. Leifs Auto Body appears to be good as well. My buddy had them do some work recently and was completely satisfied. Those are the two places I'd go if in your situation. Good luck.

Kadel's is good. Also FIX auto in Beaverton does good work and their turnaround time was super quick when I used them a few years back. Steer far away from Precision Auto Body.
