What To Expect
When a vehicle is involved in a collision, the first step prior to the actual repair is the estimate. Our appraiser is continually trained regarding damage analysis. They also hold an Auto Body Journeyman Ticket – who better to assess your collision damage than someone who has worked on them himself.
The damage is identified, and OEM repair procedures are researched and documented to ensure a proper repair. Parts are outsourced – OEM parts are our preference for fit and quality. Once the fully documented estimate is completed, our team of experienced collision repair experts is ready to start the repair process to bring your vehicle back to pre-accident condition.
Remember it’s your choice where your vehicle is repaired not your insurance company’s.
Before we repair any vehicle, we will do a pre-repair scan of it. This is a health check of your vehicle and provides us with any diagnostic trouble codes that could indicate pre-accident and/or accident-related damage to the vehicle’s computerized safety and convenience systems. This essential step identifies issues with the vehicle that could be missed without this procedure.
Post-repair scans are done on all vehicles, and that ensures all the systems on your vehicle are in proper working order prior to delivery. Failure to perform a post-repair scan significantly increases the risk that your vehicle may be returned with malfunctioning or inoperable safety and convenience systems. A post-repair diagnostic scan is the single best way to ensure that your vehicle is returned to pre-accident condition.
