When you take your Audi in for service, it's important to know that you're being charged honestly for crucial work on your vehicle. At the same time, you must ensure that your vehicle is left in trustworthy hands. Use the following steps to make the best choice in collision repair service.
Search the Web
Check the Audi website for collision repair specialists in your area. If an auto body shop appears in the site's listings, it means the staff is trained in the handling of Audi Genuine Parts, which are guaranteed by factory warranty. Also check your insurance company's website for their list of collision repair and auto body specialists in the area. If you're still looking for options, call your nearby Audi dealerships and ask for their recommendations on nearby auto body shops.
Check Their Credentials
When you take your car in for repairs, ask about the shop's I-CAR status. As the official seal of quality throughout the car repair industry, I-CAR certification verifies the qualifications of an auto body shop's staff. To ensure that you get the most mileage from your repair work, check the warranty they offer on the work that's needed on your vehicle.
Find the Best Price
Beware of extraneous charges when you go for service on your vehicle. At an auto body shop, the charges are usually based on the amount of time it takes to complete a certain job. Before repairs are performed on your vehicle, request a written estimate and ask the mechanic to go through the quote and explain the recommended services.

One of the best things about off-roading is the thrill of exploring the road less traveled. But when you drive on bumpy terrains like gravel, sand, rocks, and riverbeds, you must ensure that the auto body and inner-workings of your vehicle are equipped to handle the territory. To that end, your car should undergo regular detailing, preventative maintenance, and bodywork. You'll also need high clearance for your vehicle to ensure that it conquers the mountainous off-roads and keeps you and your passengers safe throughout the adventure.

If your vehicle's auto body gets dented, but the paint is un-cracked, the damage can easily be repaired with proper tools and maintenance. The good news is that the paint hasn't chipped, which means that the metal won't be exposed and you won't have to pay for a costly new paint job. Which only leaves one question: How exactly does paintless dent removal work?
To remove an auto body dent, you rub it back to flatness from underneath. However, it's easier said than done, because there's usually an underlying metal panel that obscures the damaged outer layer. The purpose of these panels is to insulate your car and protect the inner mechanisms from impact. To avoid the risk of breaking them, it's best to see a collision repair specialist who will know how to reach those hard-to-access areas of your car.
While removing a dent, an auto body specialist will usually hold a shaping tool over the outside to prevent the dent from pushing outward. After a few minutes of applied pressure, the dent should flatten out. However, the metal in that spot won't be as strong or impact-resistant as it had been when the vehicle was new. But from an aesthetic standpoint, the former damage should be undetectable to the naked eye.
Unlike other types of auto body repair, dent removal is not about mechanical knowledge; it's about solid hand-eye coordination. It's also about having the right tools. Cheap tools probably won't do the trick, and pricier ones could equal or exceed the cost of a professional repair. Basically, you're best off seeing a collision repair specialist, as a botched removal could be costlier than the dent itself.
If you need a dent removed from your vehicle, have it done properly at Dave's Body Shop. We are certified with Assured Performance, and our technicians have removed dents on vehicles for motorists across Utah.

Choosing an auto body shop is an important decision that deserves careful deliberation, as the wrong shop may lead to costly repairs and wasted time. Fortunately, this process can be made easy by following a few simple steps. Here are a few tips for choosing the right auto body shop.
When it comes to choosing the right auto body shop, it’s always a good idea to talk to your friends and family. Find out if you know anyone who has recently requested the services of an auto body shop and inquire about their experience. If they received the quality of work that they had expected, you may want to look into that shop for yourself. If they had a negative experience, however, you can cross that shop off of your list and look elsewhere.
Modern technology makes research very simple. You can learn a great deal about almost any business by conducting basic research on the Internet. There are plenty of websites that are dedicated to customer reviews of all different kinds of services. Find potential auto shops using these websites and browse through the feedback left by recent customers to get a sense of their reputation and overall quality. In most cases you can also visit an auto body shop’s website. This will typically offer you a great deal of information including history, services, and a media gallery.
You can also gauge an auto body shop’s quality and reputation by its certification. Look into its standings with the Better Business Bureau and other related entities. Certain shops are certified by specific car companies like Audi or Ford. This means that they are trained in their methods and use original parts, so it may be helpful to choose a reputable auto body shop that is certified to work with your car.
