How to Find the Right Collision Repair Shop
Have you been in a car accident and need to find the right collision repair shop? The first thing you need to do is have a list of questions to ask each shop in your area. You basically need to interview them to make sure they have what it takes to make you vehicle back to how it was before you had to be in this mess.
We want to make sure you are prepared and receive the best experience possible, so we want to walk you through this step by step.
You first want to look at the reviews on each of the shops in your area. Ask your friends and family their experiences with the collision repair shops they’ve been to. You can get an educated guess of the quality of their work by looking at their reviews and ratings!
Next, estimate how long the repair will take. You must consider how busy they are, the extent of your damages, and time of your collision repair.
Be patient with this because even the best shop cannot give you an on-the-dot completion date due to all these factors.
Make sure the shop has fire and theft insurance. Most places do, but it’s better to be safe than sorry! You want to make sure that your vehicle is covered in case of an incident happening at the shop.
Will the paint exactly match the rest of the vehicle? Be sure that the body shop will be using the same exact color of paint and not a similar color by giving them the code prior to the repair. If not, ensure that they have the proper tools to accurately match your car’s paint.
Find out all these answers and will find a good shop in your area that you can rely on for a quality repair.
