Auto Body Shop at Pfaff Autoworks

Have you recently been involved in a car accident? Are you searching for a good auto body shop? If so, one of the first things you likely noticed was the significantly different estimates you have received from different shops. You may hear $500 from one, while another auto body repair shop quotes you a repair bill of more than $2,000. Which do you choose? How do you know what shop is going to do the better job? While good collision repair shops are hard to find, this doesn’t have to be an impossible task. In this article by Pfaff Autoworks, we will be talking about some tips on how to find the best auto body shop. Read on for more information.

 

Location and specialty of the auto body shop

Something to consider is where the auto body repair shop is located. You need to find someplace close by, that will allow you to follow-up in person. Also, the location of the shop, or if they need to ship your vehicle elsewhere, is going to impact your overhead costs. In most cases, the cost of replacement parts isn’t going to vary as much as the actual labour costs.

 

Trust your gut!

You always need to trust your gut about the auto repair shop you are thinking of using. If a shop isn’t very busy, or if it is run out of a private location without an official certification, then it could be that people are avoiding it due to subpar repairs or that they shop isn’t properly licensed or certified. If the location is extremely dirty, disorganized or cluttered, then this may reflect the type of work the shop is going to do with our vehicle. This is especially important if your vehicle needs to be repainted or if work needs to be done on aluminum body vehicles. Is the manager or owner of the shop unpleasant or unprofessional? Do they resent having to answer your questions? The fact is, you’re going to be happier choosing a shop where the owner communicates well and is straightforward with the customers.

 

Only work with legitimate and certified auto body shops

You should only leave your vehicle in the care of an auto body shop that’s able to back up the claims made with certifications. Make sure their license is displayed in a prominent location and research the auto body shop online to find out how their service ranks. Taking some time to find a shop that operates by the standards you expect lets you know you’ll receive the best possible results.
