How to Find the Right Collision Center Repair Specialist, Part 1

April 19, 2013

dallas collision centerWhen you need car repairs after an accident, it can be difficult to find the right collision center in Dallas, TX. Everyone says they’re the best, but how do you know which repair shop to choose? The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers gives a list of things to look for in a collision repair specialist:

  • Training and Certification. Today’s vehicle systems are very complicated, so training is extremely important. Look for a collision center whose technicians are I-CAR (collision repair) and ASE certified. Technicians that are not well-trained will not be able to resolve the complex problems that can arise in modern vehicles. At Hance’s Uptown Collision Center, we take pride in being a -Car™ and ASE™ certified garage.

  • Years in Business. Collision repair is a complicated business, and below-par collision centers can close quickly after opening. Ask how long the shop has been in business, and choose a collision repair specialist that has built up experience and satisfied customers that speak for their work. Hance’s Uptown Collision Center is family-owned and operated since 1955, still serving third generation customers.

  • Customer Assistance. A good collision repair shop will make your experience as convenient as possible, by helping you deal with insurance claims and paperwork, as well as quickly helping you find alternate transportation during repair. A quality collision center often has prior agreements with rental car companies to make the process easier. Hance’s Uptown Collision Center offers insurance claim handling and easy car rental arrangements.

In our next blog post, we will discuss more of the AASP’s requirements for good collision repair specialists, and all the ways that Hance’s Uptown Collision Center meets or exceeds those requirements. When you come to our collision center in Dallas, TX, you can always feel secure in the knowledge that your car is in experienced and capable hands. Contact us today.
