    Its all about your beloved vehicle that needs to be repaired. Selecting an Auto Body shop is always as important as selecting an insurance company. If your vehicle sustained extensive collision damage, you’ll be wanting Collision Centers that has positive reviews on the same vehicle make as your personal vehicle. You may want a Auto Body Shop that has a front end alignment rack, a dedicated auto mechanic and maybe even a frame and unibody repair specialist. Once your vehicle is in a auto body shop or Collision Center, make sure you let them know about any additional auto repairs you may be interested in. The insurance company is only going to pay for the rental car for limited amount of days. Cause we always want to serve you with most options in front of you to choose.
