Auto body shops will not have a problem giving you an estimate of the work that needs to be done on your car, for body repair or for a car painting job. If you are going to choose an auto body shop, there are important things that you should check. The cleanliness of the auto body shop is very important. When you ask for pictures of their previous work, the shop should be very willing to show them to you. You would also want to know if your insurance company or any other insurance company recommends the body shop.
Perhaps you are thinking in your mind why cleanliness is an important thing for an auto body shop. In your mind, a body shop is the last place you will see order and cleanliness since their job is to fix body parts and you would expect things to be scattered about. However, cleanliness and orderliness is very important especially if they are painting your car. If you choose an unclean shop, then maybe the car’s wet paint will get a lot of dust, hair, metal shavings and other small particles on it. Maybe they can fix that problem but sometimes they cannot. Just be sure that the paint booth is clean before you let them paint your car.
Specific body shops are recommended by insurance companies to their clients if there is a need to have their car body fixed. If you insurance company recommends an auto body shop, then you can have confidence that this body shop is a good one.
Many body shops are proud of their work. Usually a body shop will boast of their work by displaying or showing you before and after pictures of their previous work. They have picture books, hang it on walls, or they can give you references of people whose cars they have fixed. Look for another shop if they are not willing to show their previous works or even give references of former clients.
The things mentioned above are found in a good auto body shop.
