Nobody hopes to get into a car accident. Its not on someone’s “to do” list at the beginning of their week. Nevertheless, it does happen and when it does you want to be able to get your vehicle repaired to its original condition in a timely manner. Finding the right auto body repair shop will ensure just that.
The bottom-line, as I see it, is that you sold your soul, not your business. One last comment on selling to large corporations; heaven help the seller who sells his business for corporate stock or the buyers bonds and the buying company goes broke or the stock market crashes. I had a close friend sell his company for mostly cash and some seller carry back financing in Dec 1997. By Feb 1998 the buying company was in bankruptcy, making the paper my friend held worthless.
If you are going to do the job yourself make sure you buy decent quality equipment. Painting equipment is available in a range of quality and prices. Avoid buying the cheapest you can find. For an extra few dollars you can buy better quality equipment such as brushes to ensure a good finish.

Do payments have to be made in advance, or large deposits paid before work begins? Are installment payments a possibility?
Car paint shops can do this job and it won’t cost you too much. This is because an electric scooter has a very minimum body area to reduce it’s self weight for easy maneuvering. Because of this the only painting job required is the main frame.
Once you confirm you and your passengers are okay check to make sure the people in the other car are okay too. Once you make sure everyone is healthy then you will want to evaluate the damage to your car and to the other car(s) in the accident. This is when you should exchange insurance information with the other people involved in the accident.
CONCLUSION: Appraising a business, especially body shops, is an art not a science. No two people will appraise the value of a business the same. I am amazed that the same thing one buyer thinks is a great asset is what another buyer thinks is a major negative. Differences of opinion are what make life interesting.
