Getting an estimate from an auto body shop is the first step in fixing a damaged vehicle. Whether you need to need to correct damages caused by vandalism or an accident, an estimate is an important tool that can help you choose repair services within your budget. However, with so many specialists and body shops available, getting an accurate and fair estimate can seem daunting.
Knowing what to do and what to look for in a reputable shop can make the process easier and help you get an estimate that suits your needs. The first thing to do is talk to your insurance company and ask about any requirements they have on estimates, and obtain a list of accredited repair shops that give estimates to your insurer’s specifications.
Get to know each auto body shop before finalizing your choice. Look for professionals who will answer your questions and take the time to explain what’s required to repair your car and how much it will cost. It’s also a good idea to check your local BBB (Better Business Bureau) website to see if any complaints have been filed against a specific auto body shop. While visiting various establishments, make sure you understand what’s involved before signing off on an initial estimate.
