It IS IMPORTANT to understand that a reputable Auto Paint and Body Repair Shop, (we specialize in Trucks and Motorcycles by the way) always brings a comfort to the customer.
When a car wreck happens, whether injuries happened or NOT, it still can be quite traumatizing.
With the many aspects, police, insurance, let alone if injuries were incurred, it IS IMPORTANT to check for some of the following, BASIC, points.
By NOT having certification does NOT mean that they might not be among the best in your area. The Certification means they have training to work with specific tools and models, like a Porsche or a Jaguar.
Check with Auto Body Associations, whether local or national and ask if the technicians have experience in working on a car such as yours.
Warranties are also a LARGE CONSIDERATION when having your car, truck or motorcycle worked on.
Most shops provide a lifetime warranty, (as long as you own the car), whether it was out of your pocket or the insurance companies
We also welcome questions and discussion. When an auto, truck, paint and body repair shop has you wait in a room, does their pricing and then hands you an estimate, and doesn’t allow questions or discussion, a red flag should be raised.
Remember that you, the insured, will get your choice of which repair facility that you prefer.
Also you should remember to do the following,
ask questions like: "Do you use original parts, (Factory), or aftermarket."
Check the length it might take to repair your vehicle.

Check any reviews, etc.
