After you've had an accident, it’s never easy choosing the right auto body shop to fix your car, especially if you aren't familiar with all the ins and outs of your vehicle. It might be tempting to pick whatever auto body shop is close in Coquitlam or the Tri-Cities area, or whoever your insurance agent recommends, but that isn’t always advisable.
There are many misrepresentations and myths circling around about auto body shops and insurance. At Tom’s Custom Auto Body, we want to dispel some of the rumours so you can make better decisions for your vehicle. Here's another common myth...
A lot of drivers believe that once they are in a serious accident, their vehicle will never be the same after. At Tom’s Custom Auto Body, we work with ICBC to ensure your vehicle is completely safe and not only roadworthy but handles just as beautifully before the accident. When the repairs are complete, you should always do a personal inspection with the technician to make sure everything is repaired and up to your standard. After all, you’ll be the one depending on your vehicle for travel.
Some of the things you should examine are the panel alignment, the paint quality, and wheel alignment. Look for splatters of paint or uneven streaks. All these are signs the technicians didn’t do a very thorough job. Also, ensure the trunk, doors, and hood all open and close properly. You should always inquire about warranty on parts and labour before making a decision on which auto body shop you should trust with your vehicle. If your car doesn’t drive as well as before, then you want to make sure the auto body shop can fix it without any extra charge to you.
At Tom’s Custom Auto Body we always give you a warranty on parts and service so in the unlikely event anything does go wrong, then you can come back, and we’ll fix it right away.
