"We're excited to experience such tremendous growth in a short period of time, and our goal is to continue to build on that success," said Brad Weisberg, founder and president of BodyShopBids. "We've seen that there's a demand for a service like ours--people want to be able to find reputable body shops nearby, choose the fairest price, understand what's actually wrong with their car and book an appointment, all from the comfort of their own home. We want to expand what we've started in Chicago to other cities in the very near future."
Unlike other companies that provide auto repair estimates, BodyShopBids does not require detailed information on damage to your car. The company works with local body shops to ensure they honor estimates and provide reputable service.
BodyShopBids is currently active in Chicago, with plans to expand to Los Angeles and other U.S. cities in the upcoming months.
BodyShopBids is a Chicago-based startup, funded by Lightbank, which provides a web and mobile platform to connect consumers who need auto body repairs with body shops through a unique bidding system. The company's technology allows users to easily upload photos of damage vehicles and receive custom quotes from local body shops, all for free.
