When you are the owner of a car, one of the first major issues you are likely to have is problems with body damage. If your car gets damaged in the body, then it can bullet the value as well as the aesthetic appeal. That being said, there is no reason why such body damage cannot be repaired at a fair cost if you go to your local dealership.

Dealerships tend to offer you far more responsive treatment – and affordable assistance – than a garage. Most of the time, garages know that you are in a position where you either pay through the nose for the help, or you do it yourself. They know they have you over a barrel. With body shop repairs, though, you might find that your dealership offers you all the help that you could need to get the problem dealt with.

As dealerships provide longer warranties, fill their staff with technicians and engineers with experience and also provide replacement parts like never before, garages are being cut adrift. Dealerships today know that they need to offer more than just the case, cars last longer today so people are buying less cars, so they need to be able to offer you another means of managing your car outside of just buying it!

Most of the time, dealers need to offer you a flat rate fee and provide you with more specialized tools and specific solutions than a garage could. Since they tend to have access to the actual manufacturer, they can very easily get you the parts needed for a proper replacement and have them fitted by a vetted professional.Some of the most common body shop repairs that you might need to undergo that you can get from a standard dealership today will include:

Small body part replacements – getting rid of small parts that have been broken or damage and would usually be a hard thing to replace without direct access to the manufacturing teams of your own vehicle.

Panel, bumper and/or fender replacements – these are very common, as well. They are a very impressive solution and one that you can absolutely find to be affordable and easy to get when you go to your dealership instead.

Grill, light damage – these are more particular parts that need to replaced and, while expensive, can be commonplace but very hard to get replaced properly at a local garage. Keeping that in mind, you should find it much easier to get the kind of car replacement that you need.

Large repairs due to driving damage – from the steering wheel becoming damaged to the car more or less being unusable, a modern dealership worth using is more likely to be able to repair even these most excessive kinds of damage. They might be more used to small-time changes, but most dealerships will handle make-or-break changes, too.
Overall, it can be hard to pull off getting repairs needed at a garage that you can find affordable. While not exactly cheap at a dealership, the prices can be a little better and the service more likely to be exactly what you were hoping for.
