accident:

1. How long will the repairs take? The answer will vary depending on the extent of the the vechicle damage, how busy the shop is, the type of the vehicle you have, or if parts need to be outsourced.

2.  Do you have loner or rental cars? Most likely you'll need a car while yours is being repaired. Some shops provide loaner or rentals, while others have a relationship with a local car rental company and can get you a reduced rate. 

3. Do you use original manufacturer equipment (OEM) parts? If your vehicle is fairly old or wasn't in good condition prior to your collision you may need to settle for after-market or generic parts being put on your car. If your car is relatively new and you not only want to protect the trade-in value but ansure parts are safe and fit correctly on your vehicle, make sure your body shop does this before signing a work order.

4. Do you provide a warranty for your repairs? If a body shop doesn't guarantee their work to some degree, be wary of using them. If their repair job is inadequate it can negatively affect your vehicle's trade-in value.

5. Do you or your techncianshave any ctifications? Having certifications from I-CAR or ASA helps to assure that the shop is reputable. If you're debating between two similar auto body shops, go with the one with the most certifications. It assures that your technicians are skilled in their specialty. (i.e. painting, parts, etc.) 

Doing your research before deciding on a body shop can save you time and money in the long run, and also protect the trade-in value of your vehicle in the future. Don't hsitate to ask questions.
