3 Reasons to Choose Local
With your vehicle being an incredibly important part of how you get to work, take your kids to school, run errands, etc., you want to be sure that your vehicle is in great hands and comes back to you in tip-top shape and in a timely manner. When researching the best body shop to take your car to, a common question is whether to take it to a local body shop, or directly back to the dealership you purchased from. Here are a few reasons why you should look into trusting your local repair shop over a national chain or dealership:
When getting you’re car repaired, your main concern is typically how much you are willing and able to spend on the repairs. While a larger corporation has to stick to a set price, your local shop has the ability to fluctuate the price for parts and labor, making the overall price adjustable and much less expensive in many cases.
- Locally = Personable
In most cases, locally-owned shops have a customer base that regularly comes back whereas at a larger chain they are accustomed to seeing different clients on a daily basis. When you choose local, the staff and owners are more likely to remember your face, name, and most importantly, your vehicle and its history.
The convenience of going to your local body shop is also important. This will usually mean that you are going to a location near you, and they are able to perform minor and larger repairs in a more timely manner rather than over an extended period of time. On the same hand, this is also convenient when getting your car back. You are less likely to need to drive farther to pick up your vehicle, or in the event that your vehicle needs to get delivered, it’s easier and more cost-efficient for it to be closer to you.
