When choosing the right auto body shop, ask around. Word of mouth is powerful, important, and in most cases you will receive important feedback for making the best decision. Similar to word of mouth, a body shop’s online presence is important. Online you should be able to find their website, customer reviews, complaints, and more information about the shop.
WORD OF MOUTH
Having your vehicle repaired shouldn't be a stressful time. Whether you are looking to repair hail dents from a recent storm, or your vehicle needs major collision repair, choosing the right shop to repair your vehicle is an important decision. The quality of your repair is important when it comes to taking care of your vehicle, but how do you choose the best repair shop for your vehicle?
WHAT CERTIFICATIONS TO LOOK FOR?
There are important certifications and memberships to look for when choosing the right shop. You want to make sure the shop you choose is certified by associations within the auto body industry. If they are not displaying their credentials, ask for them. Associations to look for include, Auto Body Alliance, I-Car, and ASE (Automotive Service Excellence). They vary from state to state. These credentials provide quality educational courses, and keep you the customer, protected. These certifications show that the shop is continually learning the newest methods to improve the quality of your repair.
DO THEY WARRANTY THEIR REPAIRS?
The quality of your repair is also critical in determining the right shop to choose. Whether you are having your vehicle painted, buffed, or a windshield replacement, a quality repair is key. Try to choose a shop that offers a warranty, it shows they will stand behind their repair. Make sure you understand the warranty fully before proceeding with the repair.
It is important to choose a shop based on your needs and principles. At Precision Collision Auto Body our focus is on you.
