Posted: April 30, 2020

Following a collision, you may have a lot of questions about how to proceed. When choosing the best body shop to provide your vehicle with the repairs you need, it’s recommended you get at least two estimates to ensure your car is receiving the attention and care it deserves.

At Andy Mohr Collision Center, we know this time is a confusing one for you, so we’re here to answer all your questions. We’ll guide our friends from Plainfield, Indianapolis, Fishers, and Bloomington, Indiana, on how to navigate getting an estimate and how to pick the best repair shop.

How to Choose a Body Shop

When selecting a collision repair center, it’s important to consider all your options and take the time to select the best one for you. Consider the following factors when making your decision:

Listen to Recommendations

The best way to know if a repair shop provides the customer service and high quality of work you desire is to listen to recommendations. If you have a friend who has recently been in an accident and had repairs completed, speak to them about what their experience with the body shop was. Be sure to ask about efficiency, quality of work, and overall satisfaction.

Do Your Research

In addition to listening to personal experiences from friends, you can perform research online into local repair shops. Read reviews to see what customer experiences were or look into the types of certifications the shop has received to make sure they’re equipped to handle your needs.

Get an Estimate

After performing research into which body shops you’re interested in, the next step is to get estimates from your options. Keep in mind the shop with the lowest estimate may not always be the right option. Using genuine OEM parts will be more costly upfront but can provide more long-lasting quality that can help you out down the road. Speak to a member of their service team about why the estimate is what it is to learn more.

Work with Your Insurance Company

Following an accident, it’s crucial you work with your insurance company to make sure you’re getting the proper repairs. Your insurance company has collision centers they have worked with in the past and will likely recommend a few. You don’t have to choose one of theirs, but it’s always good to consider their recommendation.
