Getting a Second Opinion on a Damage Estimate
Where To Start
You see, getting a second opinion isn’t reserved for just doctor visits. If you’ve received a damage estimate that seems too high, find another reputable auto body shop and ask for another one. By getting a second opinion on a damage estimate, you make sure that you are getting the best quality repairs possible at the best price.
Not sure where to start? Word of mouth is a good place to begin. That’s if you have a family member, coworker, or friend who has had repairs completed recently. If not, Google isn’t a bad idea. Make sure to find and look at verified reviews. Simply picking the first body shop that comes up on Google is like playing Russian roulette. You need to make sure the auto body shop has a good reputation before seeking a second opinion on a damage estimate.
Things to Look for
When it comes to auto body repairs and getting a damage estimate, repair experience is so important. New shops often have fancy signs and run promotions to draw in new customers. These are bad things per se, but you shouldn’t be fooled by “bells and whistles.” Instead, focusing on making sure that the shop you choose has extensive experience doing the types of repairs you need. For example, if you are getting a damage estimate for a bumper repair and paint job, you should ask questions about paint. You don’t want to end up with a cheap pain job because you failed to be proactive when choosing a shop or didn’t get a second opinion on your damage estimate.
