This post is part 4 in our 5 week series that will cover reasons why you should get an estimate done by an independent auto body and paint repair shop like Miracle Body and Paint in San Antonio Texas before you agree to have anyone repair your vehicle.
Turn Around Time
The best auto body and paint shops want to work quickly. Getting cars, that have been in a collision, repaired and back on the road as quickly as possible, while maintaining a high level of quality, is a necessity. Especially if a collision center is to survive in the San Antonio market. Moving a car through the repair process also allows for the auto body shop to repair more vehicles which is a good thing for everyone. Unless that shop cuts corners to keep a third party happy.
You may think that an insurance company’s pressure on a shop to work quickly is designed to help keep a body shop moving. But the reality is, they put pressure on the shops to keep rental car payment cost down. If they can get a shop to get the car back to you in 4 days instead of 5 they saved money. For many preferred shops this forces them to cut corners on repairs and send vehicles out that are not ready. Often the customer does not notice that the collision repair is not perfectly completed because it may be hidden under a fender or quarter panel. Other times the customer is forced to bring the damaged vehicle back to the collision shop to have the repairs completed. Now a 5 day job that was done in 4 becomes a 7 day job.
At Miracle Body & Paint, our team works with the insurance company to make sure that the proper amount of time needed to complete the repair is the amount of time we take. Because we don’t have the pressure of having a preferred shop title taken away from us we can be sure that we are always doing the right thing for our client, You.
