Mercedes C300 accident repair, Boston, MA?

Can anyone recommend some auto body shops that cater to high end vehicles in Boston Massachusetts or anywhere in the Northshore, close to Billerica MA? I would prefer not to take my vehicle for repair at the dealership.

There is no difference between repairing a "high end" vehicle and any other... pick a larger shop near you for convenience, stop in and ask good questions like do they use OEM parts or 3rd party, can you see an example of their paint booth work, what is the turnaround time.Why do you prefer not to go to the dealership? If the car is high value, your deductible is the same either way right, since the repair will exceed the deductible? If the car does not have this level of insurance then perhaps it isn't really a high end vehicle anymore?Another way to go is just look in the yellow pages. Bigger ads cost more, larger operations have them. You get large by doing good work at fair prices. Your insurance company may also have suggestions.

Look for a shop on this website http://www.goldclass.com/index.shtml . It lists all shops that are I-CAR Gold Class Certified, the highest level of training in the industry. It is very expensive to achieve Gold Class status and only the best shops spend the time and money to reach this level.Why wouldn't you want to go to the dealership that specializes in your brand of car? They receive training from the factory that no other independent shop will have. Unlike the mechanical side of automotive repair, body shops have their rates set by the insurance company. The insurance companies do yearly reviews in every geographical area and then pay the average of what the shops are charging. Any shop that wants to do business with an insurance company, the bulk of collision repair work, will adjust their rates to match what they pay. Going to a dealer for collision repair work should not cost you any more than going to an independent body shop and the dealer will know the most about your car.Source(s):20+ years experience in collision repairASE certified collision damage estimatorASE master certified collision repair/refinish technicianI-CAR platinum certified collision damage estimatorI-CAR platinum certified non-structural repair technicianI-CAR platinum certified refinish technicianSherwin Williams certified refinish technicianDuPont certified refinish technicianhttp://www.goldclass.com/index.shtml
