Still looking to find a body shop to repair your vehicle?
So you’ve checked with your technician or shop that works on your vehicle and with friends or neighbors. Your next person to check with is your insurance agent.
It is your auto insurance company that, more than likely, will eventually pay the claim so it makes sense to ask them for a list of reliable local repair shops that they have worked with. Auto body repair shops that work with insurance companies are typically deemed to be the best in terms of professionalism, quality of service and pricing. These shops can also be a good advocate for you when dealing with your insurance.
I would like to mention one last detail when working with your insurance. Most body shops have associations with insurance companies which are called DRPs (Direct Repair Process). Some work with several insurances while another shops work with a different set of insurance companies.
In the end you still can take your vehicle to the body shop of your choosing.
