“I paid $70,000 for this truck,” Mike said. “So there’s no way I am willing to let just anyone work on it.” Mike hit a deer on his way to work one foggy morning. “Luckily, I was able to swerve and avoid having the deer come up into my windshield,” he said. “But the front bumper’s all messed up. The passenger side headlights and signal lights are wrecked. And I’m not sure if anything happened in the front end, but I’ve got a little play in the wheel I didn’t have before. I need a auto body and repair shop that can handle the whole job!”
As an auto body and repair shop in Bridgewater, we’d like to let you know what you should expect when you’re searching for body work and repair for high value vehicles. The first step is to identify a shop with certified technicians and the ability to service the make and model of your vehicle. Your insurance company may maintain a list of preferred providers, but you are not limited to the auto body and repair shops on that list. The choice of who works on your vehicle remains yours.
The best auto body and repair shops will thoroughly inspect your vehicle after an accident. The purpose of this inspection is to discover and record all damage and concerns you should know about. The shop will provide an estimate detailing what type of work needs to happen, what that work will cost, and approximately how long it will take.
In our shop, because car owners come from a variety of backgrounds, with different levels of resources and expectations, we offer a good-better-best service tier. The good tier gets the car owner back on the road safely, while the best service tier restores the car to showroom condition. The better level, which is what most people pick, restores the car to an attractive appearance and full safe functionality, without the luxury details that the best level provides.
People who have high value cars worked on generally choose the best level of service, in order to restore their vehicle to like new condition. In Mike’s case, this included some repairs to the tire, wheel and suspension in addition to replacing broken signal lights and replacing the bumper.
