Auto Body Repair Service
With the technology of cars changing, so do the shops that repairs them have to change. One of the best things that could have happened to Tony’s Body Shop is becoming a Tesla Approved body shop. Tesla has restricted parts so that not any shop can repair this car unless they are a certified shop. Some of the calibrations required when repairing such a car are done in-house. When repairing such a car, it is important to follow the Manufacturers written repair procedures to put the vehicle back into its original condition. In reading procedures, you find out what are “one time use parts” that need to be replaced and not re-used, you uncover what needs to be calibrated.
Some may say repairing a Tesla is almost like repairing a plane, both have aluminum parts and require following manufacturer procedures to repair. Having this certification helped catapult the shop into what the new cars are going to become. Following repair procedures is becoming more and more common place with other makes as well. This is why it is important to try to get your car repaired at a certified collision shop. Proper repairs and a safe repair for the customer is super important. Having the proper training and the proper equipment is what separates one body shop from the next.
You will often hear me say “Ask around, ask your friends, ask your neighbor, ask your mechanic, where is the best place to get your car repaired? The reputation of any business is important. For Tony’s Body Shop, a family owned and operated business, it is super important to us to take care of the customer. We do not sell cars, we only do collision repair. Having the customer come back and tell others about us, is super important. We honestly try our best to do a quality repair and stand behind our repair work. Some insurance companies may try to guide or possibly steer you to one of their discount shops by telling you they will only warranty the work if you go to one of their shops, this is not true! It is the shop that repairs your car that warranty’s the work, regardless of being a preferred shop or not. Father Tony Flores who originally started Tony’s Body Shop was once told by a man from Argentina: “Do the best job you can for the car you are repairing now, and don’t worry about when the next job is coming”. Very “old school” thinking………. But so true……… So don’t forget to “Ask Around” ….. and remember “you have the right to choose who repairs your car”, don’t be misled….or “steered” to go elsewhere….
The staff at Tony's body shop have always treated me with respect and have completely met my expectations with the quality of work done to all my vehicles.
