4 Things To Look For When Choosing A Denver Paintless Dent Repair Shop
Purchasing a vehicle is our second biggest investment after our home. When it gets dented in a parking lot, car accident or hail storm – choosing a reliable Denver paintless dent repair shop is very important. Most car owners will simply go choose a shop that is on their insurance companies “preferred list” because they assume those are the only paintless dent repair shops that are approved to perform the repairs. This is not true.
Here are a few key details to look into when choosing a Denver paintless dent repair to do quality dent removal on your vehicle.
a. Visit the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website. Check their rating, how long they have been in business, the number of complaints, and how they were resolved.
b. ‘Google’ the company by name and read reviews left by former customers on their Yelp, PDRDirect, Yahoo, and Google business pages. A perfect 5-star rating might seem like a winner but be aware, some businesses will buy into review generation services that they pay to leave reviews. Also, a 4 star or even a 3 rating isn’t a bad thing either. Reading how they approach and resolve criticism or complaints is a good thing to know.
c. Look at their social media pages. How engaged are they with their customers?
d. Ask friends and associates for their recommendations.
Something we all have to face in Denver is the possibility of hail. There hasn’t been a year that has passed without a good hail storm. Do your research BEFORE the storm hits so you aren’t rushed when it really happens.
- Look around.
Look for a clean, well-organized shop with modern equipment. Ask for a tour. Talk with the staff. My father used to always warned me to thoroughly evaluate the interior condition of a used vehicle before I ever even put the key in the ignition. If the interior is beat-up and in bad shape, the engine is probably worse. In other words, if the Denver paintless dent repair shop is unkept, you shouldn’t trust them with your vehicle.
- More doesn’t always mean better.
Everyone loves a good deal but don’t base your decision on what they give away. Dent damage inspections & auto hail repair estimates should always be free. This is your chance as a consumer to test the waters. Free rentals, valet services, and deductible coverage is absolutely a plus but shouldn’t be the 100% basis for your decision.
In the end, you need to choose the Denver paintless dent repair shop you feel the most comfortable. Do your research and never base your decision on the ‘perks.’ Make sure the shop offers a warranty on their work. Read their warranty and ask questions.
