5 Questions to Ask Your Body Shop After a Collision
In addition to checking online reviews such as Google and Yelp, you can check for recommendations from family and friends. Once you have settled on a couple of body shops that are rated highly and have a good reputation, you should ask the shop owner or manager these five questions:
1. How long do they estimate the repairs will take? The answer will vary depending on the extent of the damage to your vehicle, how quickly the shop can get your car in and even the type of vehicle you have.
4. Do they provide a warranty for their repairs? If a body shop doesn’t guarantee their work to some degree, be weary of using them. If their repair job is inadequate it can negatively affect your vehicles trade-in value.
5. Does the shop or their technicians have any certifications? Having certifications from I-CAR or ASA helps to assure that the shop is reputable. If everything else is the same in the body shops you check out aside from this, go with the body shop with the most certifications. It assures that your technicians are skilled in their specialty (i.e. painting, parts, etc.)
Doing your research before deciding on a body shop can save you time and money in the long run, and also protect the trade-in value of your vehicle in the future.
