Rear ended! Body shops in NJ?

Well was stopped behind an X5 making a left on two lane road. behind me, also stopped, was a corrolla. 4th car in the train was jeep liberty driven by a kid who forgot to stop... fortunately no one was hurt, there was a toddler in the back seat of the corrolla, and the rear of that car was absolutely crushed. credit the kid seat I guess.
my damage was rear bumper cover, hood, drivers side headlight & fender, front bumper cover and grill. car actually drove fine after. BTW, my car is '11 CW 2 dr GTI.
Any body shop recomendations in north or central NJ??

Thanks

My GTI is almost finished getting repaired at Collex Collision Experts in Shrewsbury, NJ. There a VW certified repair facility and are one of the top in this state. Definitely check them out: http://www.autobodyexperts.com/

Repaired some serious hail damage on my Acura TL, you could not tell it ever happened. Same car one week before lease was up was rear ended on route #9. Lots of damage, bumper, trunk lid, frame etc. Again work was excellent.
