Getting in an auto collision is one of the most frustrating and stressful experiences a driver can encounter. Whether it’s the other driver’s fault or purely an accident, there’s always a moment where you’re just grateful that everyone is still all right.


But once you’ve gotten past the shock of the accident itself, you’re still left with the frustration of dealing with the aftermath to get your car repaired and get back on the road. Getting a good collision repair quote is essential to making sure your car is repaired according to OEM guidelines and the insurance company pays the maximum amount possible.


In this blog post from Suburban Auto Body, we’ll share our top advice for getting the most out of your auto body repair quote. Check out this post and then give us a call to schedule your auto body repair.

1.   Choose Your Auto Body Repair Shop Wisely.

It might be tempting to use the first repair shop that comes up without asking a lot of questions about their experience, training, and quality of work. Instead, be sure to check out online reviews to make sure the technicians are experienced in handling your vehicle.

2.   Get a Complete Quote.

You want the shop to give you a complete quote that returns your car back to you like nothing ever happened if possible. What you don’t want to encounter is an outsized bill after the repair that doesn’t match the quote you were given. Use an auto body shop that will give a complete quote for all repairs so there are no unwanted surprises.


3.   Be Cautious About Lowballs.

One of the biggest mistakes drivers make is to get several quotes and then pick the lowest repair estimate. Too often, low repair quotes come from incomplete inspections or low-quality products. Unfortunately, it’s also possible that a repair shop may just be trying to get your business by cutting corners to save money.
