It is entirely possible to get a bad repair job on your car. You may not know it until it is too late. The video ” How to Spot a Scam Auto Body Shop” shows a few ways to safeguard yourself so that you do not get a lemon.
The first thing to look for when shopping for an auto body shop is the certifications and qualifications of the people there.
A certified automotive technician will be more knowledgeable and skilled than an untrained one. The technicians at a good shop should have years of experience. You can typically tell this from the type of work they do.
Ensure you also look for a place recommended by someone you trust. Get a copy of the shop’s warranty, and then watch out for what it says. It is better to use the shop yourself before referring it to others to know what to expect.
The best indicator of whether or not your auto body shop is good or bad is what kind of work they do. Most shops will tell you that they are obligated to pay for the repairs if they damage your car. If you do not see a large variety of auto jobs on their services menu, this could be a warning sign.
