A Mystery Shopper Study

This study was conducted to compare estimates for automotive repair costs between MAACO discount auto repair Centers, auto dealer-operated body repair shops and independent shops. Each facility that was "shopped" in this study was unaware they were participating in a research study. Each was shopped three times by different study participants.


When compared to auto dealer body repair shops MAACO's repair estimates averaged 43% lower.

When compared to independent auto body repair shops MAACO's repair estimates averaged 24% lower.

  • * MAACO provided a lower repair estimate in 20 out of 30 cases.

On average MAACO's repair estimates are 33% lower, which is very important if the customer is paying for the repairs out of their own pocket.
