Why Choose an Independent Auto Body Shop for Collision Repair, Cincinnati, Ohio

When you buy a new car, the prospect of needing collision repair is probably far from your mind. However, as a safety precaution, it helps to have a contingency plan just in case. Part of this involves knowing where you should take your vehicle: An independent auto body shop or the dealership? Many people assume that because of the warranty, they can only go to the dealership. However, as long as you don’t seek unnecessary cosmetic changes, you’re free to go where you’d like without voiding the warranty. Whenever possible, choose an independent auto body shop; they offer a variety of benefits, some of which are detailed below.

Why an Independent Auto Body Shop Is Best for Collision Repair

Specialized Training

Although dealerships can be great for minor tuneups, they’re not always aimed for the extensive demands of collision repair. However, certain independent auto body shops are specifically geared towards this. These centers have both the equipment and the trained technicians to fully restore your vehicle.

Personalized Service

Furthermore, since they don’t serve a single manufacturer, they can be more candid in their responses than workers at a dealership.

Familiarity With Other Brands

Opting for a dealership restricts your future choices. For example, if you end up with a new car later and it’s a different brand, you’ll need to take it to a new dealership, whose work and personnel you'll be unfamiliar with. It's easier to have a trusted, independent auto body shop on hand in case of a major collision. That way, no matter the make of your vehicle, you can always rely on them.
