Your vehicle can be dangerous if not repaired properly. Even if the frame of your vehicle is bent just a little bit, it can cause major problems right away and down the road. Also, if the paint job is not applied properly, the paint can end up getting too much oxygen in it, which will eventually turn into rust. Don’t hire some random guy that is working out of his garage, you need to look for an auto repair shop that offers a guarantee on their work and has that has great reviews online.
When the shop you choose can guarantee their work, that takes the stress off of you. The last thing you want is to be stressing over the fact that you left your car with a random guy who offers no guarantee that the work will be completed properly. Even once you get your car back, there is no way to tell that the work was done right without taking it to another shop for a diagnosis or just waiting for it to breakdown again. Take the stress off your shoulders and hire someone to do the job right the first time. Yeah, it’s going to cost extra money but it’s better to spend that little extra to make sure the job gets done right, rather than spend a little here or there which is eventually going to add up to the same amount anyway.
Most of the time, the smaller mom and pop shops don’t have all the parts and accessories needed to perform services on your vehicle. You will most likely have to wait for them to order parts for you or you will have to order them yourself. The last thing you want to do is wait longer for your vehicle to be repaired than you already have to. Especially, when are in a rental car and paying a daily fee while waiting. Also, the smaller shops are not going to have access to towing or rental car services. All of the major shops will have rental car and towing services available 24 hours a day and also have most parts and accessories on-site.
One huge difference between the little guys and the professionals is, the payment options. A small company might not be capable of accepting insurance as a form of payment. That could be a huge inconvenience for someone who is planning on using their insurance money they got from a collision for the payment. Only professional shops are going to give you the options to pay with insurance. So, keep that in mind when you are planning on going with the little guy.
I know you want to save as much money as possible but if you look at it from a different perspective, getting the job done right the first time, does save you money in the long run and creates less stress.
