Four Tips for Choosing the Correct Auto Body Shop
You’re looking for work to be done to your car, whether a new paint job or an accident repair; but how do you determine which auto body shop will be the right fit for you? Below you will find four tips for choosing the right auto body shop, and why Key Collision is the one for you.
Word of Mouth
Word gets around quickly, whether it’s good or bad, and that’s the first impression you’ll get of an auto body shop. What are people saying about the shop on social media? Are there reviews on Google, Yelp or at the Better Business Bureau? Remember, any business can advertise, but if they truly stand by their work and treat customers fairly, people will promote them.
Ask the Right Questions
Before going into any body shop, do research on what you’re looking to have them do. Learn a little about what you’re going to be paying for, and keep your wits about you. The more the know, the less likely you’ll be talked into buying something you don’t need.
Check Out The Staff
Make sure that the technicians working on your car have the right credentials. It’s important for technicians to continue their training and be up to date on the newest care models and repair techniques. Look for certifications and plaques showing that the staff is technically competent. This could save you from major headache when someone disassembles your car only to find that they don’t know how to put it back together.
Longevity of the Business
Ask how long the auto shop has been in business, and if they’ve always been in one location, or if they’ve expanded throughout their lifetime. A shop that’s been around for a good amount of time will have a better reputation than a fly-by-night shop. You want a shop that knows their clientele and that is a proven performer in the community.
