How to Choose an Auto Body Repair Centre

repair centre - collision repair in calgary

Knowing what to do after an accident is stressful enough, and in addition to making sure that no one is injured, exchanging information, and notifying the authorities and your insurance company, you will no doubt be tasked with having your car, truck, or SUV repaired. So what should you look for in an auto body repair shop? The following tips from the Capital Ford Winnipeg Collision Centre will help you make the right decision so you can get the professional repair work you need to get safely back on the roads in and around City Centre.

Is the Auto Body Centre MPI Accredited?

The first thing you should do is make sure that the auto body repair centre you pick is MPI Accredited. In order to earn accreditation, a repair centre must demonstrate a commitment to following Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) standards, policies, and procedures. This includes ensuring that:

  • All personnel receive training on the latest industry-approved techniques.
  • The facility is outfitted with the most advanced diagnostic and repair equipment available.
  • Only high-quality parts are used to repair your vehicle.
  • Pricing is in line with the current Winnipeg area market.

When you choose an MPI Accredited Direct Repair Shop like the one at Capital Ford Winnipeg, you can count on receiving professional repair service at a fair price.

Do They Offer Insurance Claims Support?

Part of knowing what to do after you’ve been in an accident is notifying your insurance provider, which, in addition to assigning you to a claims adjuster, may refer you to a preferred auto body repair centre. It’s important to note that most Garden City area insurance companies will only work with an MPI Accredited Direct Repair Shop such as the one at Capital Ford Winnipeg. We’ll handle all the details regarding your insurance claim and ensure that all repair work is in accordance with insurance requirements.

Are Their Auto Body Repair Prices Fair?

The cost of collision repair can be pretty steep, depending on the amount of damage to the vehicle. You will want to confirm that the prices offered at the auto body shop you choose are competitive and aligned with current market costs. Another benefit of selecting an MPI Accredited Direct Repair Shop is that they offer fair pricing on parts and labor. At Capital Ford Winnipeg, we provide you with an itemized estimate before we go to work on your car, so you won’t be hit with any unpleasant surprises.
