The Repair Process.

  1. Estimate2The 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. Insurance ApprovalOnce 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. DisassemblyIn disassembly hidden damage is often found, and additional structural repairs are determined. Often we need to reschedule an additional insurance inspection and order additional parts.
  4. Structure Repair 3The required parts for your vehicle are ordered. Although many parts arrive quickly, sometimes the parts are back ordered. The repair process can not begin until we receive all the structural parts.
  5. Structure RepairIn the structure repair area, 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. Body RepairThe body repair department replaces the exterior panels and all metal finishing that may be required. Sheet metal is installed and aligned and is sent to our paint preparations department.
  7. Paint2All panels are prepped for paint, primed and then sealed for good adhesion for the final top color and clear coats.
  8. ReassemblyFinal 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. DetailingWe 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 it’s pre accident condition.
  10. CompletedWhen 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 it’s pre accident condition.
