How Much do Body Shops Charge?

It’s probably the number 1 question a body shops get and also has to be the #1 source of most customer worries.  

It’s a balance of what the car needs vs what the customer/insurance company wants, of course quality is critical, but the real world brings varying budgets and Insurance company restrictions (coverage limitations), parts back orders and supplier delays.

How much to paint my car?  How much to restore a car?

There are no set prices for the Collision Repair Industry, there are labor rates based on a shops overhead and market research (inflation adjustments etc).

What’s it going to cost anyway?

As many shops as you ask, that’s how many different prices you will get.

The notion you must get 3 estimates is not true.

You have the right to take your car to the shop you have the best relationship with, their pricing depends on their shops overhead, payroll etc.

For Insurance claims, we have software with book times, for customer pay items we have labor rates, best practices and a balance of what the car needs vs what you want.

The best advice is to stop by the shop for a consultation, let us ask some questions, get a better idea of your needs and we will make recommendations and back it up in writing with stellar customer reviews.
