With all the damage this past week from thunderstorms passing through the area, insurance companies are warning consumers about "fly by night" repair shops.

According to NewsWest 9, repair companies will be popping up with the recent damage to cars and homes this past week due to the severe thunderstorms that rolled through the area but insurance companies are warning against getting discount repairs.

They advise that you go with established repair shops that have been in the area for many years instead of going with a flyer posted on your windshield or house.

The reputable shops will be around to take care of any problems with the repairs that might come up months after the repair.

Most shops that have been in the area for a while say they will be open late and on weekends to take care of the number of claims being filed in the area.
