What Should I Look for In an Auto Body Repair Shop for Luxury Vehicles?

If your high-end, specialty vehicle has been in an accident, finding a trustworthy auto body repair shop can challenging. But in this day and age, online customer reviews paint a pretty accurate picture of the kind of service and results you can expect. When you’re on the hunt for reputable, timely, and honest service, always research what previous customers have to say about any luxury auto body repair business you’re considering.


Beyond researching customer reviews, it’s also important to make sure the auto body repair shop you’re considering offers concierge services. These thoughtful details are intended to make the repair process as streamlined and stress-free as possible for the client. Services you should look for include:


●        Vehicle pick up and drop off

●        Rental car service

●        Auto detailing

●        24/7 towing

●        Comprehensive insurance claims handling


Will Repairs to My Specialty Vehicle Mimic the Original Design?

The end goal of the auto body repair process is to restore your vehicle to its pre-accident condition. However, if your vehicle features aftermarket parts, your insurance policy may not cover the cost of replacing those components since most policies only extend coverage for factory parts.


If you have additional insurance coverage for add-on components or specialty parts, your vehicle will be repaired exactly as it was prior to the accident. But keep in mind: the auto body repair shop has no control over which parts your insurer will or will not authorize. If you have any questions about the specifics of your policy, contact your insurance company for further details.


Is More Time Required to Repair a Luxury Vehicle than a Standard Vehicle?

Generally, auto body repairs on luxury and specialty vehicles require more time than repairs on standard vehicles because parts are more difficult to obtain. In most cases, specialty parts must be ordered from the manufacturer, and wait times for those parts can vary.


As with any type of vehicle, the extent of the damage to your specialty vehicle also affects the amount of time required to perform the repairs. When you bring your vehicle to a repair shop, the technicians will give you a time estimate regarding how long it will take to obtain the necessary parts and successfully complete the repairs.
