According to an article at helium.com, “What to Expect after a Collision”
“How to Choose an Auto Body Repair Shop
The best way to avoid being ripped off on auto body repairs is to be prepared. It is also good to know how to select a good auto body repair person, what kinds of questions to ask about your repair, and your consumer rights.
To choose the best auto body repair facility to fit your needs: ask for recommendations, shop around for the best price, check to make sure the repair shop is licensed or registered, and ask if they provide a car for you to drive, or recommend a car rental service. Your auto insurance may cover this expense, check with them first.
Before you agree to have the shop do the repairs ask for the labor rate and full price on parts and supplies. Most places will charge a flat labor rate based on the estimated time it takes to perform a specific repair. If you have a really complicated repair, you may want to get a second opinion. Most shops will provide you with a free estimate as long as the damage is not from hail.
If you decide to get the work done, ask for a full written estimate including: identifying the condition to be repaired, parts needed, and estimated labor charge. The written estimate should state that they will contact you for approval should they need to do any additional repair.”
