Usually it depends on the size/severity of the dents as well as the over all proximity of all the dents. If you have alot of dents on a single panel the shop may want to replace it, but if their able they may try painless dent removal (popping them out) they probably will. Either way your gonna end up with whatever allstate decides to do. If they take it to their own shop like progressive then they will generally do whatever is cheapest.

so is it better to take it to my body shop for them to see the car,on the phone the agent told me to have the car inspected in one of there shops to get an estimate and then i can take it anywere i want to be fixed.

By the way, if you know of any reputable shop then go to them without worries. If you don't know of any, my friend who I went to high school with has a shop. He works works on all my cars including my Z and will be working on my GC to fix hail damage. Feel free to give him a call 917 560-1436. Just tell him Sam sent you and he'll take care of you.
