If you have been in an accident, a cart has hit your car, a hail storm went through, or your car is just full of dents and dings, you need to get it repaired. The way to do that is to go to an auto body shop. They will be able to repair dents and dings, scratches and scrapes, and get your car looking good as new again. The repair shop may be able to fix the dents without having to do a lot of work on your car's body, which means they don't have to paint it. However, they may have to paint at least part of your car as part of their repair. Paint not only makes your car look better, but it also helps to protect your car from rust and corrosion. You can do a few things to help pick the right body shop.


The first thing you can do is to get quotes from two or three body shops. Your quote should include what kind of work they will be doing on your car, what parts still need for your car, if your car will need to be painted or not, and how many labor hours will go into the work. The quote should also include how much labor per hour is. You should get multiple quotes because you can compare and contrast them to see which one fits you best.


You should also ask the repair shops if they take your insurance if your insurance covers repairs. If they take your insurance, ask if you will have to pay out of pocket and then submit a receipt for repayment or if the auto body shop submits their invoice directly to the insurance company. Either way, you need to be aware to plan appropriately. You can also check with your insurance company to see if they have an auto body repair shop that they prefer to work with. Some companies will contract with repair shops in the area to do any work for that company. If your insurance company contracts with a repair shop and you go to a different one, you may have to pay entirely out of pocket for the repairs.

If your car has been damaged, you need to get it repaired as quickly as possible. Not only will it make your car look better, but it will also protect your car from rust and corrosion. Find an auto body repair shop to help get your vehicle back to how it looked before.
