How To Choose An Auto Body Shop After A Collision

Posted by on Jan 31, 2022 in Blog

Being in a collision is stressful. In our last blog post, we discussed what to do if you’re involved in a car accident. Once you have ensured everyone is okay, reported the accident to the police if necessary, and have gotten yourself and your vehicle to a safe place you’ll need to call your insurance company. Once you’ve started your claim, they will give you the name of the auto body shop they want you to take your vehicle to. They might make it seem like that shop is your only option but it’s absolutely not. You have the legal right to choose the auto body shop you want to repair your vehicle. 

Your insurance company likely has a contract with a large auto body chain. This has a lot of benefits for them but none for you. Using the auto body shop your insurance company recommends can affect the level of service and quality of repairs you receive and cost you time and money.

So, what should you be looking for in an autobody shop? And why should you choose Freeway Auto Body?
