Searching for a Collision Repair Specialist in Reno?
An auto accident is not an ordeal that anyone wants to experience. The reality is it’s happen on a daily basis. If your vehicle is repairable, here are tips on how to find a reputable auto body shop.
According to an article at angieslist.com, “Finding a Professional Auto Body Shop”
“Finding a reputable auto body shop that you can trust can make the task of moving on a little less daunting. Consider these tips for finding a high quality shop.
Looking for a shop’s certifications is a good way of finding out whether it’s reputable or not.
“Most body shops don’t have manufacturer certifications,” says Adam Theroux, owner of highly rated Performance Auto Collision in Alpharetta, Ga. “If they are certified, that means they went to training and have special tools to work on those models. For example, we are sending a tech to Houston for Mercedes training for two weeks.”
While some states have their own auto body industry associations, some popular national associations are the Society of Collision Repair Specialists and the Independent Auto Body Association. Also, ask whether the technicians and the shop have received certifications from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
Do they warranty their work?
Auto experts say any reputable auto body shop will provide a lifetime warranty, no matter whether the insurance company or customer pays the bill.
“Our warranty lasts as long as the customer owns the vehicle,” says Bob Carter, owner of highly rated Bob Carter’s Auto Body in Downers Grove, Ill. “It covers workmanship completely and part failure due to manufacturer defect subject to our part vendor’s warranty.”
Red flags should be raised if they don’t.
“If not, why?” Theroux adds.” To read the entire article click here.
