What differentiates this business from other collision centers?

“I’m always honest with customers and always stay true to my repairs and promise my customers to get their cars working the way it was before the damage or better. I don’t nickel and dime on small stuff and I do free advance computer scans. All my customers have my cellphone number so they can call me anytime they want. Sometimes I even fix a car for free if the issue is really small and it’s a quick fix. Customer service and honesty is my best policy, it doesn’t matter how cheap the cost is. Customers will always remember I am honest and didn’t try to rip them off. For example, I had a customer the dealer quoted him 5800 bucks for an air strut and a transfer case on his 2014 jeep and they told him both of them have to be replaced. I told him the airline was bad because that was the issue and they sell a repair kit for that so I fixed it and the transfer case fluid was just bad so I replaced that and did a oil change for 370 bucks. Another example, I had a customer with a Hummer H3 they told him he needed a new transmission that was going to cost 4 thousand, that’s what the chevy dealership told him and he brought it to me all he needed was a TCM and that cost 400 bucks parts and labor. I always show the customer the issue and explain to them with detail and how the part works.”
