    Have you talked to your local delivery center? Tesla will know who in the area is doing the best job for them, as they do regularly have get body shops involved to repair cars that are damaged in transit, etc.

    Wow, that really sucks. Airbags went off too, I wonder if they will even total the car. I guess since the 3 is essentially new they will fix it, but I've seen examples of model s's with similar damage and the car was written off by insurance.

    What happened? Did you get side swiped, or t-boned? How fast was the collision at?

    Someone hit me on the side while backing up off driveway. He was speeding and not concerted.

    I'd take their recommendation, they likely use them for touch-ups on bad deliveries. They also have good reviews.

    Thank you

    If there is anything closer to central NJ, it will be easier
