Q: Cheapest & Smartest Decision

asked by on

Insurance Covered Accident. Need: Front Bumper Cover, Grille, Small Repairs to hood. I want to keep my car. I like it. However, with the high mileage, I don't want to go for the standard insurance repairs. Ideally, I want a good shade-tree body guy who can help me get cheap parts and do it cheaply. Contacts in Greensboro NC? Other suggestions?

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A good strategy is to research used parts availability and pricing, in your locale at Car-Part.com. Once you have selected the parts you desire to replace, a certified Mechanic from YourMechanic can assist with the installation. With regard to the hood, keep in mind, it might be cheaper to get a used hood (perhaps even a new hood) rather than attempt to "mend" a damaged one. Also, as you can imagine, the painting of parts is best done in a body shop. But, you can bring individual parts to a shop and they will finish them for you and then you can install yourself. At any rate, with Car-Part.com it’s easy to get all your parts together and then, yes, absolutely, a professional from yourMechanic will be glad to help you with the repairs as well as any other maintenance or mechanical concerns that you may have with your car.
