When to Bring Your Vehicle Into an Auto Body Shop

The first place to bring your vehicle for collision repair work is an auto body shop.

Many people never consider bringing their vehicle into an auto body shop until they have been in an accident and file a claim with their insurance company. Working with both your insurance company and an auto body shop is typically easy when body repairs are required following an accident or when there is damage caused by some type of incident that does not involve another driver.

Even if an independent body shop is not listed as one of your insurance providers “preferred” repair shops, you can typically bring your vehicle into one like ours and still have much of the damage covered. We work with all insurance companies so if your vehicle has been damaged, bring it in and we’ll explain how we can help.
