The biggest mistake I ever made was going into this piece of garbage shop.  I brought my 2010 Camaro in there to get worked on.  Nothing big; an old lady backed into my front driver's fender in a parking lot.  I figure the estimate would be around $400-$500. 

I opened the door and walked up to the desk, where an old, fat, bald, sweaty guy with his feet propped up on the counter while eating a McDonald's quarter pounder was.  This turned out to be the owner, "Help you?", he said, while continuing to chew his burger.  As I started telling him about my car, he cut me off and said "Nice skirt!", while winking and nodding his head in approval.  I proceeded to tell him about my car when he said "show me where it's at."  I brought him out to my car, and for some reason he opened it and got in the driver's seat.  He began to aggressively slam up and down on both the gas and the clutch as if he were racing.  "What are you doing?!", I said, beginning to get annoyed at this point.  "Vroom! Vroom! Vroom!", he yelled, mocking a speed-racer.  He then said "hot chick... hot car...", and yet again, winking at me. 

"Do you wanna see what you have to fix or what?", showing my annoyance.  He got out of the car and said "show me."  I pointed directly at the fender, to which he replied "where?!"  I came up closer to the fender and pointed.  "Show me exactly where!" he said.  I then had to bend over and point directly to it.  He then made an uncomfortable moaning sound and said "mmmmmm yeah... there it is.  That's the sweet spot alright."  After realizing he was staring directly up my skirt, I told him "forget it.  I'm going somewhere else!" 

I started calling him bad names I probably shouldn't have, as to which he replied "yeah, what was that?!"  I then said "you heard me, mother f.... er!"  As I was getting into my car and about to close the door, he screamed "YOU WANNA SAY THAT TO MY FACE?!"

I just peeled out in front of him at that point.  I would NEVER recommend ANYONE to going to that shop.  The owner is completely unprofessional, not to mention a pervert!!!

#9 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Kerry Larkin

AUTHOR: Stacey - (United States of America)

I was the owner of Ideal Paint & Body for 25 years, I sold the business in 2009, I was always very professional and fair with everyone that came threw my door. I had a very successful business with always the top priority being customer service and satisfaction. As you may well be aware all these complaints are by the same person, a person that was NEVER a customer of Ideal, someone who obviously has more of a personal problem with me rather then business. I'm very sorry for that person and I wish them well, I dont believe they will have the courage to leave their true identity in fear of the legal ramifications but rest assured when I find out I will prosecute to the fullest extend of the law.

Ps. I did get arrested for dui, my bad.

some people are just miserable!

AUTHOR: Lauren - (United States of America)

Im a friend of Kerry and the only coward is the person fabricating aLL this BS If you confronted him Im sure you would of got an answer or maybe even more.. Kerry has never done drugs or even associated himself with them. He's a great person, in business and in his personal life. Pervert is what he is not, or maybe thats some ones definition of being single and having fun. If I remember correctly, Kerry sponsored the first golf tournament at this place on the water and has always been the most generous person in any restaurant. Maybe the person writting this should get a grip on life.

Kerry Larkin is a piece of crap.

AUTHOR: Chris - (United States of America)

Let me tell you what Kerry Larkin is.  I work at a particular restaurant on the intercoastal in Boynton Beach.  This guy would come in there every day, and I mean EVERY day!  The entire restaurant was so sick of looking at his fat, out-of-shape, ugly a**.  He is every bit of a pervert; flirting and making sickening gestures to every girl including my WIFE!  My wife (who also works there) told me that he would wink at her and grab his crotch and squeeze it, then blow her a kiss.  When I confronted him about it, of course he wasn't man enough to admit it because he's a coward.  When it was discovered by my manager that he was in the restaurant selling drugs, he was thrown out of there immediately, with entire entire staff cheering as he walked out.  Don't ever do business with this broke piece of garbage that owes a ton of people money.

Best body shop in Florida

AUTHOR: Alan - (United States of America)

I have been to Ideal paint & body a few times, I also sent my daughter and 2 of my friends. The owner Kerry is very professional and knowledgable, he always was a gentlemen with me and my friends. His company has been around for over 20 years in the same location, you cant say that about too many body shops. Im not sure who this person is or why this person is making these acquisiations but its sounds more personal then anything. One last thing, Kerry is a well dressed very handsome man, all body shop owners should be built like him!
