While there are a number of shops available, there are only a few that hold quality to such a high standard. Do not assume that all shops, even with similar prices, repair to the same standard. Only about 47% of dealers have a body shop, and that number continues to decline. Many dealers that do have a body shop rent their facility or are dependent upon a shop they have partnered with. They do not necessarily mention that to you, of course. An independent body shop does one thing: auto body repairs - leaving it to focus all attention on making proper, quality repairs. Dealer shops, however, are primarily in business to sell cars.
