SIKKENS: THE LIFETIME WARRANTY PROGRAM

A LIFETIME OF GOOD LOOKS
You want the best for your car or truck, especially, when it comes to appearance. So don't settle for a finish that will disappoint down the road. Instead, insist on Sikkens-the top quality finish guaranteed to look good for as long as you own your vehicle.
GET SIX-WAY PROTECTION

When you choose a Sikkens finish for your car or other non-commercial vehicle, you get more than a glossy, rich, long-lasting luster. You get the peace of mind that comes from the Lifetime Warranty Program. Six-Way Peace of Mind protects your new Sikkens finish for the lifetime of your vehicle against:

  • cracking
  • checking
  • hazing
  • chalking
  • fading
  • peeling
LOOKING GOOD TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Selecting a Sikkens finish is not only a plus for your vehicle, but also for the environment. Sikkens paints are formulated to comply with all new environmental regulations, Sikkens computerized mixing and measuring systems help body shops conserve materials.
YOUR ASSURANCE OF A QUALITY JOB
The Lifetime Warranty Program is your assurance of a quality, professional job. Before a body shop can qualify to offer the plan, its painters must undergo extensive training at a Sikkens training center. There, they learn advanced refinishing techniques - from primer selection to color matching and topcoat application. Upon graduation, they have the knowledge it takes to create a beautiful Sikkens finish for you. Ask your body shop for the details of the Lifetime Warranty Program- your guarantee of long-lasting perfection.

REPAIR PROCESS

We Keep You Informed

1
The Vehicle is inspected and relevant data is entered into our estimating system. This determines the cost of repairs. Please note: there is often hidden damage that cannot be seen until after the vehicle is disassembled.
2
Once the estimate is completed, the insurance company will review the estimate and determine if the vehicle is repairable. There may be some negotiations on the price and procedure to repair the vehicle. Once this process is completed, we start the actual repair process.
3
In disassembly, hidden damage is often found, and additional structural repairs are determined. Often we need to reschedule an another insurance inspection and order additional parts.
4
The required parts for your vehicle are ordered. Although many parts arrive quickly, sometimes the parts are back-ordered and take more time. The repair process can not begin until we receive all the structural parts.
5
In the structural repair department, the unitized body is returned back to factory specifications. A computer based measurement system is used to analyze the frame of your vehicle. This system monitors all phases and assures an accurate repair.
6
In the body repair department, the damaged exterior panels and all metal finishing are replaced. Sheet metal is installed and aligned and is sent to our paint preparations department.
7
In the paint preparations department, all panels are prepped for paint, primed and then sealed to create good adhesion for the final top color and clear coats.
8
In our expert paint department, final moldings and detail pieces are reassembled. The vehicle then goes through a system check. Your vehicle is almost completed and ready for delivery at this stage.
9
We clean your vehicle, as it accumulates dust from the repair process. After road testing to ensure everything is working properly, a final inspection will assure that your vehicle is restored to its pre-accident condition.
10
When you arrive to pick up your vehicle, the bill is explained and the final paperwork is completed. You drive away a happy customer as your vehicle has been restored to its pre accident condition.

Customer service was amazing. Ladies at the front desk were very polite and informative. The actual repair process didn’t take as long as I had expected. I turned my car in and It was done in the same week. Repairs came out clean. Looks like new. Definitely will be recommending to others.

Very capable body repair shop. The quality of their work is outstanding, the repaired section looks exactly like it did originally. They also beat their estimated repair time by a week! If I have any future body that needs to be done on any of my cars, I want it done by Smitty's.
