Five tips to help you find a great body shop

When you need help for your car following a wreck, use these five tips to help you locate the best collision repair shop to get you back on the road.

1. Friends

When you need a body shop after a collision, your best resource can often be friends who have been in a car wreck and needed body work done on their vehicle. You know the people in your life won’t steer you wrong.

2. Body shop reviews

Go online and read the reviews for body shops in your area. People, whether they happy or unhappy, enjoy voicing their unvarnished opinions. You might get an earful, but it will be worth it!

3. Interview, please!

If you have the time after your collision, call the shop and get a feel for the people who will be doing the work. Do they sound knowledgeable? Trustworthy? Are they too busy for your questions? This can be a real time-saver in terms of finding the right collision repair center for your needs.

4. Is the body shop online?

Some of the best, most modern, and customer-savvy body shops have a website or maintain another online presence, like Facebook, twitter, or a blog. Visit them and learn what they’re all about before getting your work done.

5. Damage control following a car wreck

Before you make your decision, if at all possible, take a minute or even overnight. Then take stock of what you need, what resources are available, and get ready to make your next decisions with as little emotional turmoil as possible.
