I have seen a list somewhere about the "MB Certified" collision centers and they are all in large metro areas. I'd suspect there is one in Houston. If none of the local dealers has a shop maybe they can recommend one.
The rule of thumb here is if the body damage equals, or exceeds, 80% of the car's value it is totalled. The gray area is what car value does the insurance company use? If you look at some of the companies "blue books" they do vary, but not by all that much.
