3 things to look for when online shopping for a repair shop.
It can sometimes be hard to find the right shop to repair your vehicle. How long will I be without my car? Do they know what they are doing? The biggest question of all, can I trust them with my vehicle? These are all reasonable and smart questions when searching for a shop. Here are 3 tips on what to look for in a trustworthy shop of repair:
1.) Online presence.
-An online presence is huge when looking for a shop of repair. Most reputable shops will have a very good online presence whether it be on Facebook, Instagram, Google, Twitter, Tumbler, YouTube, and even in some cases, Pinterest.
What do you mean by online presence? A good online presence is a when a company makes posts on social media sites to give their followers and future followers updates on what's going on in their business wether it be a promotion, a post saying hello, informal videos, writing a blog, or posting a happy customer photo.
I really can't stress enough on how important it is that you check reviews. Reviews are comments from people who have used a business for a service.
Any reputable company will have reviews. Majority of people like to give their feedback whether it be a good or bad experience.
There are many places you can look for reviews:
-Facebook (reviews & recommendations)
-Yelp (also look for "currently not recommended" at the bottom of the page)
-BBB page (If said company has a BBB rating)
Depending on the company's line of business, there are certifications that may be required. But with PDR there are certain certifications that a company or person can acquire just for their customers peace of mind.
These include but not limited to:
-Any business should have a Better Business Borough (BBB) profile
These are certifications that a technician can receive upon proving that he or she has the proper skill to repair dents, minor collision, and hail.
That being read, I Hope this information will help you when searching for your shop of repair.
