How to Choose an Auto Body Repair Centre

man deciding what auto repair centre to choose in calgary
Whether you have an unsightly dent in your car or truck or more extensive collision damage to your vehicle, finding a reliable auto body repair shop in the Calgary area can be a challenge. Here are a few tips from the Capital Chevrolet Buick GMC Collision Centre on how to select an auto body shop that can provide the professional repair work you need.

Is the Auto Body Centre Certified?

The first thing you will want to do is search for shops that are certified. Certification means that the auto body specialists have been thoroughly trained on the latest techniques, and the facility itself is equipped with industry-standard technologies of the highest quality. A dealership like Capital Chevrolet Buick GMC, for example, is fully certified, so you can expect to receive the professional service required to return your vehicle to a like-new condition. And, unlike other Strathmore-area repair shops, we only use brand-new OEM parts to restore your vehicle.

Do They Offer Insurance Claims Support?

Are there certain auto body repair shops you have to choose after an accident to get insurance coverage? Most insurance companies will only work with certified repair shops. Capital Chevrolet Buick GMC has a close relationship with 14 major insurance companies, and we often receive referrals as a trusted auto body repair centre. In addition, we handle all of the necessary insurance paperwork for you.

Is Their Pricing Competitive?

Another important consideration for Okotoks drivers is cost. Auto body work can be expensive, but a certified shop will keep their prices as competitive as possible. That’s another reason why so many well-known insurance companies choose to direct their clients to us. Our specialists fairly assess damage, parts, and labor costs, and they will provide you with an itemized estimate. You won’t run into any unpleasant (or costly) surprises.

What Services Do They Provide?

  • Services: Not all auto body repair shops offer the same services. At Capital Chevrolet Buick GMC, we offer comprehensive auto body repair services, including scratch and dent repair, auto painting, paintless dent removal, and windshield and glass repair. And we will work on vehicles of all makes and models.
  • Free Estimates: While just about any Airdrie repair shop will advertise free estimates, you need to be careful that they don’t apply any hidden fees. When we say “free”, we mean it. No strings attached.
  • Towing: Finding a shop that will provide towing is also something you should look for. Capital Chevrolet Buick GMC offers 24-hour towing. If your auto body work is part of an insurance claim, we will forward the bill to the insurance company. If you are paying for the repair yourself, we will tow your vehicle for free within Calgary city limits.
