After the initial shock of having an accident wears off your next move is critical.
This will not only affect the value of your vehicle but also the future safety of your family and any one who may be sharing a road with you. You need to decide the best place to get your vehicle repaired. Michigan has some of the best consumer laws on the books to protect you the customer.
The most important law is you are recognized as the owner of the vehicle and as such you can take your vehicle anywhere you chose to to get it repaired. No one can force you to take your vehicle anywhere you don’t want to. There are a lot of factors that can influence your decision and they all want you to believe that they have your best interest at heart.
For some people you talk to at this time saving money can be a big reason to try to influence you to take your vehicle to a certain facility to get it repaired. You need to look to friends and family to see how there experience has been with shops in your area. You then need to go and check them out to see if you agree that it is the best fit for you.
First and most important you need to look for a shop who is well trained and well equipped. Most modern vehicles are very complicated pieces of equipment that
require a lot of training and information to repair and you want to know that the shop you chose can handle the repairs. Not many shops have what is required to repair modern day vehicles.
Look around for proof of training and ask questions when you are getting your estimate of repairs. Always remember you have control of the situation because you are the owner of the vehicle.
