Most people use the expressions auto body repair, and auto repair, assuming there is no difference. Having stated this, we want to help you to understand the differences between an auto body repair vs. auto repair.

Auto body repair and Auto repair have skills and knowledge in their fields. While these areas have some extension, they are not interchangeable. Deciding whether to have repairs performed by auto body or mechanics is about determining what repairs are needed and what results are wanted.

Auto Body Repair

Auto Body Repair, indicates the body of the vehicle, the frame, windshield, windows, roof, doors, fenders, bumpers, hood, trunk, etc. When it’s working with the surface or shell of the car, you are going to need to take the vehicle to an auto body shop.

Auto body repair points to how the vehicle looks. The auto body is qualified for the structural integrity of your car. Essentially, the bodywork is what keeps you safe during a collision. The auto body repair shop removes dents, paint, replace windows, and guarantee that the frame is right and your vehicle fits all factory safety standards.

Vehicle Repair

The auto repair work is the one performed under the hood. They are the mechanics. There are axles, gas tanks, drive shafts, and more that technically are under the rest of the vehicle. But for the most part, it’s the mechanical aspects of the car.

Vehicle Repair shops are the ones you go to for oil changes, clunking noises, and other driving difficulties. If you go in for auto body work, like dented fenders, broken glass, and paint jobs, they will suggest you to an auto body repair shop.
