Professional vs. DIY Auto Body Repair

If your car needs auto body repair services, you may be tempted to give it a go yourself. Unfortunately, this type of car repair is typically more complicated than your simple tire or oil change requiring an expert eye to restore your vehicle’s exterior to its original condition.

At Yokum’s Body Shop, we are your friendly neighborhood auto body shop, specializing in complex auto body repairs, collision repair, and even insurance claims. Pause that DIY YouTube channel and take a look at the advantages a professional auto body repair shop can bring to your vehicle:

Professionals Have Experience

Unless you are a full-time auto body repair mechanic, you may not have the necessary knowledge — let alone tools — to get your vehicle repaired. At Yokum’s Body Shop, our mechanics and technicians are all I-CAR and OEM-certified, meaning they can work on any make or model.

Keep Your Warranty

One thing to consider when debating on a DIY auto body repair or a professional shop is your vehicle’s warranty. Doing the work yourself may void your warranty costing you more money down the road.

Insurance Benefits

If your vehicle has been in an accident, your insurance company may require you to go to a qualified collision shop for insurance claim purposes. At Yokum’s, our team of technicians is happy to help provide your insurance with the necessary documentation and repair quotes to get your vehicle repaired correctly.
