Exclamation State Farm approved Body shops in SOFL??

So I avoided a head on collision and shot over an 8" median...In the process I hit two street sign poles and messed up my front & Bumpers, both front fenders, one quarter panel, and 2 rims cracked. I'm looking for a quality shop where I can "upgrade" my body and do a high quality job...

Suggestions?

It doesn't have to be approved for insurance to pay out. You can take it anywhere you want. That said, I always use Spanish River Collision in Boca. Top quality shop and been around for decades.

A BMW body shop will use all OEM parts if you want the best work and should be approved by State Farm. There are many other shops down here in Miami but your are kinda far.

I am currently going through this right now. Your insurance company will pay you for either used or aftermarket parts. Most of the time they will never pay for OEM (unless its a brand new car).

You also can choose your own body shop - I just suggest taking it to one that does deal with insurance companies. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me. I just went through this.

hello , you can ask for a state farm select repair facilities and they offer you life time warranty as long as you own the car , they bill state farm directly, or you can Cash out too. and choose your own body shop , also they will pay what shops charges around the area ,

I can vouch for:

BMW Body Shop 12 E. Sunrise Blvd, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33020

or

Really good shop, proper people and owner that knows what needs to be done and how to deal with insurance:

Body Craft USA, North Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL

These people were amazing while handling a Continental Flying Spur and dealing with insurance to make sure every detail was PERFECT, and when you get there - this place is nothing but high end cars SLR GTRS GTS.... Attention to detail...
