I waited 3 years to get my Rivian R1S, and it is the best car I have ever owned, so when my Rivian needed collision work, I was concerned as this type of electric car is still relatively uncommon. Fortunately, Axelrod was listed as a certified Rivian service center. Also fortunate was that Courtney and the Axelrod team worked directly with Progressive, and it really did not require anything of me other than waiting for the repairs to be completed. There was regular communication regarding updates and progress, and most of the repair time was waiting for parts from Rivian. When the job was completed, my car looked and drove exactly as before, and I was totally satisfied with the Axelrod experience. I cannot say enough about Courtney and the Axelrod team for giving me peace of mind that my repair was in good hands. I would definitely recommend it to anyone requiring collision work, especially if you need specialized EV work.
