April 6, 2012—BodyShopBids, a Web-based platform that allows consumers to solicit repair estimates from local body shops, on Thursday announced it will help cover repair costs for vehicles that were damaged during recent tornados in the Dallas metro area.

BodyShopBids said it will pay for 25 percent of out-of-pocket repair costs on consumer vehicles that were damaged in the storms throughout the month of April.

“For those Dallas-Fort Worth residents who suffered damage to their vehicle, we're hoping to alleviate at least some of the stress by providing a simple solution to get their car back into shape and defray some of the costs," said Brad Weisberg, founder and CEO of BodyShopBids.

Chicago-based BodyShopBids provides a Web and mobile platform to connect consumers who need auto body repairs with body shops through an online bidding system. Users are able to upload photos of their damaged vehicles and receive custom quotes from local body shops for free.
