Three Things to Look For When Choosing a Collision Repair Shop
When your car needs work, two things come to mind. You want someone who will get the repair done quickly, and most importantly, someone who won’t overcharge you for the work. But how do you know which auto repair shops are honest and which ones want to take you for a ride? Below we share five tips for picking out a trusted automobile repair center.
This might sound like an obvious consideration when choosing a collision repair shop, however you would be surprised how many individuals simply take their vehicle to the auto insurance carriers’ recommendation. Do your research by checking out local websites, asking how long the technicians have been working on vehicles, if they hold any expert certifications or offer a warranty for all workmanship performed. Do they offer rental car or insurance claims assistance?
Word of Mouth
Call on friends and family to request recommendations. After all, word of mouth can be your best asset when it comes to handling one of the largest investments you’ll ever make…your vehicle. It is important to see what others have to share about their
experience to ensure you are making a well-informed decision about who to turn to for high-quality, trustworthy collision repair service.
Trust Your Gut
The research process will allow you to collect a lot of information. Then your gut will help you choose which collision repair shop is best for your needs. Weigh the factors logically and see what your instinct says about the best shop for your needs.
