As the owner of a vehicle, the chances of needing services from a collision repair and refinishing facility are much greater than you may think. Whether it stems from storm damage, rust and corrosion, acid rain and harsh sunlight, or an automobile accident outright, the risks are there. It's best to know how to select a body shop to do your repairs.
More often than not, when someone is involved in an accident they assume "the insurance company will take care of it for me.'' T...his isn't always the case when it comes to some insurance companies. Most insurance companies have preferred shops they use, but in the final descision it is your responsibility to choose who will do the repairs for you.
Here are just a few starting pointers to help you in choosing the right shop to perform your vehicle repairs:
* Ask around. Believe it or not, even in this high-tech era, an old-fashioned word-of-mouth recommendation is still quite valuable.
*After narrowing down a few different options, visit each shops website (if they have one), reach out to them by phone, or even drop by. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Sometimes you never know unless you ask a particular question. Keep in mind that not all repairs are the same, so, not everyone has the same issues regarding their vehicle.
*One thing to always keep in mind, that if one shop gives you a cheap quick fix estimate, that may not be the right route for you. Vehicle repairs take time and I ensure you that you do not want someone to rush through the repair, only to have to return one or more times. Perfect example: You decide to visit three different shops and receive an estimate from each shop. Two of those shops are around the same figure (give or take). The third estimate is off by a pretty decent amount and offer to get you in alot sooner than the other two shops, and a quicker repair time start to finish. Believe it or not, there are some that would choose the third quote. Those same persons could more than likely find themselves in a pickle of the repair being rushed (which could result in a safety issue), poor quality of work performed, and even incurr more charges for unnessesary work "needed".
*Ask if they have any before and after photos or finished repair examples. I have personally seen a gentleman come to get an estimate unsure as to where he was going to have his repairs done, see a fully repaired & detailed Lexus round the building come back in to schedule with us. He admitted that Lexus coming around was what sold him. I'm sure it helped that he owned a similar Lexus himself. ...and we're happy to report he was even more inpressed upon pick up of his own Lexus.
*Be sure to look for signs of professionalism in the customer service area: civic and community service awards, membership in the Better Business Bureau, customer service awards, etc.
*Remember... knowledge is key when it comes to writing the estimate; down to the technician that does the repair.

Good Monday from all of us here at Tri-City Collision.

James and Dustin discussing what all needs to be done to wrap up the repair process on this vehicle. From here it will go to the paint booth and then back to reassembly.

This is what it looks like when you walk in the paint booth. This spot is 9 times out of 10 always occupied with a different vehicle to be painted.

Looks like Timmy is prepping another car for the paint booth this morning. These guys take pride in their work and always hard at it.

This is a 2011 Toyota 4Runner that we are currently working on that sustained front end mechanical and body damage. I'm sure when it's completely repaired and cleaned up the owner will certainly be pleased.
