BodyShopBids, a website and smartphone application that allows consumers to receive auto repair estimates by photo, recently announced it will cover 25 percent of the repair costs for vehicles damaged by tornadoes in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area for the month of April.
“For those Dallas-Fort Worth residents who suffered damage to their vehicle, we’re hoping to alleviate at least some of the stress by providing a simple solution to get their car back into shape and defray some of the costs," said Brad Weisberg, founder and CEO of BodyShopBids.
Accessible for free via iPhone, Android and the web, BodyShopBids connects consumers who need auto body repairs with body shops through a bidding system. Consumers upload a photo of the damaged vehicle and receive several custom quotes from nearby body shops within 24 hours. The consumer can then select an estimate and book an appointment online with the body shop.
