Great service and prices. Rick's Auto Body shop is very professional and the service is excellent. Rick knows his business well. They do all kinds of auto repair and they are fast and efficient. They give you a estimate and many times it ends up being less than quoted. As a woman I don't feel like I have sucker blinking on my forehead when I go to Rick's he is very straightforward and honest. I have even taken a car I was thinking about buying to him and he told me it was a lemon. If your looking for a great repair shop I recommend Rick's Auto Body Shop.
I have used the Mulnomah County Animal Control several times to report injured or lost animals. Once they had to pick up a lost iguana that was hanging on a fence just sunning himself. They have responded with courteousness and professionalism. They are very caring and also let me know in detail where the injured and lost animals would be going. They always take them to no kill shelters or the vet. I highly recommend them if you find a lost or injured animal or critter.
