After an accident, the last thing you want to do is research which one of the auto body shops in Austin is the best place to take your car for collision repair. If you want the repairs made quickly, it may seem convenient to go with a collision repair location that your insurance company recommends. Keep in mind that it is only a recommendation and you have the right to choose where you want to take your vehicle for repairs.
When you do choose a body shop, you want certified collision repair. Certified technicians are trained by the auto manufacturer to be highly qualified making repairs on a model of vehicle.
Benefits of a Recommendation
There can be some benefits to choosing a collision center recommended by your insurance company. Many providers will guarantee the work performed on your car for as long as you own it and it will not cost you to have the repairs fixed properly. Should any part not work properly after the initial collision repair, contact your provider.
How a Recommendation Works
Most insurance providers will offer recommendations based on a list of collision repair shops they have relationships with and that can meet their criteria, such as quick repairs and low costs. You are not required to select one of those shops, but can if you choose.
If you select one of the recommended shops, ask if the location uses less expensive parts to offset low payments from insurance companies. Do some quick research online to find out what others have to say about that location.
