Customer Process

CLAIM - We can help you file your insurance claim and arrange to get you a rental car for the duration of your repairs to the vehicle. After you have received a claim number, you can come in and we can start the process of your claim by getting you and your vehicle ready for repair.
 

ESTIMATE - There are different protocols for each and every insurance company. Some insurances require their own appraisers to write this for you at their facility of choice, which then you would take their estimate and bring it here for us to start your repairs. You do not have to worry about what was missed in the appraising process. We will duplicate their estimate and submit our own revisions all along the way. The first estimate preliminary. We then follow up with a supplement for the unseen or forgotten, so your vehicle will be as good as it was or even better prior to your repair. Some companies will let you bring it to your shop of choice and we will write and submit it to them for their review. Someone will come out to the car at our shop to write it which is ideal because we can assist them with this to have a more thorough estimate and less delay in revisions.

 

BODY & FRAME REPAIR - This is where the initial tear down will take place and the above mentioned supplement comes into play. We will remove, repair and replace any needed parts. 

 

PAINT - When the vehicle is finished being repaired, it will be painted accordingly. Any part that was not repaired or effected will be masked off and protected as to not get any over spray or excess paint on it.

 

REASSEMBLY - After the repairs are complete, we replace all the fenders, bumpers, panels or parts that were removed. We take special care not to damage any of the newly painted surfaces.

 

 

CLEAN & SCHEDULE PICK UP - At this point, your vehicle is almost complete! As a last step, we'll clean your vehicle, taking special care to ensure that your car is completely clean.

 

FINAL BUFF - This is usually scheduled for 1-2 weeks after you pick up. At that point, we'll then provide a fine detailing to smooth away imperfections and protect the paint so your vehicle can shine for years to come.
