No. You have the legal right to have your vehicle repaired at your shop of choice. Often times insurance companies will attempt to steer you to one of their preferred shops. Steering is done to help increase the bottom line for the insurance company, and not necessarily for your benefit.

Absolutely! There is a reason why after-market parts are substantially cheaper than OEM parts.

What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent repair is the art of removing dents, dings and hail damage using specialty rods, tools and lights, without body fillers or refinishing. Think of it like old school metal shaping paired with new technologies and precision. This really is an art that should only be done on your vehicle by someone with years of dedicated practice.
What is a Hybrid Repair?
A hybrid repair is a collision repair technique that combines the art of paintless dent repair with traditional refinishing methods. This method allows us to save panels, keep our repair areas smaller, and save more of your vehicle’s original finish. It is also the least invasive repair method as the repaired areas are not welded on (damaging the backside e-coat and making the metal more brittle), it requires the use of less fillers, and by keeping the repairs smaller, we have more original paint color to blend our new color into, thus allowing for better color matches.
