According to an article at articlesbase.com, “Auto body Service”
“Choosing the right auto body shop to perform work on your car can be very difficult. You want to have high quality service, but don’t want to be charged too much. There are a few simple things you can do to aid yourself in choosing the right auto body shop.
Always pay attention to a shop’s reputation. Any business can advertise and say that they are the best, but only a good business will have a good reputation with your friends and family. Many of the best auto body shops aren’t the biggest or best-known and by going off the recommendations of your friends and family you will find out about them.
Make sure to take into consideration the shop’s location and overhead. Most of the cost of an auto body shop visit comes from labor hours. Some shops charge much more than others per hour of labor. In general shops in wealthier areas tend to charge more because the cost of owning the property is higher. Another factor in hourly charge is how much paying their staff costs. The more staff they have to pay the more money they have to make per hour. If you go to an auto body shop and they have many front-office workers then they most likely have to charge higher hourly rates in order to pay all of those staff. Often times shops that have more staff will also decide to charge for everything that they might have to do to fix the problem instead of just the things they will have to do.” To read the entire article click here.
