What To Ask A Auto Body Shop?

After a car accident, you are probably feeling like your head is spinning! As much as you want to forget the setback, when it comes to auto body shops, the quickest option isn’t always the best. Becker Body Shop is here to guide you through important questions to ask an auto body shop before you do business with them, and we’ll answer the questions too in case we’re the right body shop for you!

Can I arrange for a loaner or rental car while mine’s in the shop?
Depending on the shop or your insurance, you’ll either have to use a rental business to get back on the road or use cars loaned out by the auto body shop. In a worst-case scenario, you’ll have to talk it through with your insurance agent to see your options. When you come to Becker Body Shop, we take care of this with one simple trick: provide you a loaner car for FREE while we work on yours!

How long will the repairs take?
There are a lot of factors that go into estimating how long your repairs will take. The obvious one is the extent of the damages done to your car, but another is dependent on how skilled and certified the technicians are, as well as the lead time for parts you need. Becker Body Shop assures quality work is done in a timely manner, and all estimates are FREE!

Will the new paint match the existing paint?
It’s important to find the exact paint code for your vehicle as long as the technician knows how to match. Be sure the auto body shop plans on using that exact color so there isn’t any mismatching. Becker Body Shop only uses PPG paint, the leading industry standard that allows for great color matching.

Does the auto body repair shop have any certifications?
Certifications can determine a reputable body shop. With certifications, the repair shop shows they have the skills and knowledge required to complete quality repairs. All Becker Body Shop technicians are Kar Grabber and PPG Industries certified with nearly 70 years of experience.
