When you have a classic car, you can’t just take it to any mechanic anywhere! Instead, you will want to give it the best care possible by someone who has the experience that you are looking for not just in cars, but in classic cars specifically. If you are looking for someone to work on your classic car, here are some things to make sure your next auto body shop has before trusting them with your mechanical baby.
First, make sure that they have the ability to work on classic cars! An auto body shop used to dealing with the everyday cars that everyone drives — the minivans, the sedans, the coupes — is not going to be the right fit. These are not the classic cars that need the tender love and care that you expect for your vehicle.
Second, make sure that your auto body shop has experience that you need. At Reliable Collision & Painting, we have over 26 years of experience and are happy to let people know about it! When you have an auto body shop that won’t tell you how long they’ve been working on cars, that might be when you do some sleuthing for another auto body shop.
Finally, find an auto body shop that you trust. Not only will this help you to develop a relationship with your mechanic, but you’ll also feel more comfortable coming in for quick service checks or when something seems wrong.
