Tips for Choosing an Auto Body Shop

Every vehicle owner should have an auto body shop they can depend on to provide their car with quality repairs. It isn’t always easy, however, to tell whether you’ve found the right shop. If you’re trying to decide whether a body shop is up to your personal standards, use these tips to help you make your choice.

Look for a shop with a good reputation. The longer a body shop has served a particular community, the more likely it is to provide good service. Look up online reviews of the shop and pay attention to the quality of the customer service as well as the repair work. If the shop’s other customers are satisfied, it’s a good sign that you’ll be happy with them as well.

Look for a green-friendly shop. A shop that adheres to EPA standards is likely to provide safe and high-quality repairs. Find out whether the shop uses low-VOC products to protect the ozone layer, and look to see whether the shop recycles the materials it uses instead of discarding them. Along with benefiting the environment, eco-friendly policies are a sign of a conscientious shop that you can trust to take good care of your vehicle.

Look for OEM certified technicians. OEM certification means that a body shop’s repair team has the training needed to repair a specific vehicle in keeping with the standards of the factory it was manufactured in. Whether your vehicle is a Ford, a Nissan, or a Tesla, it pays to make sure that the technician working on it has the necessary qualifications to ensure quality repair work.
