Step #1 – The Repair Estimate

Bring your car over to us and we’ll perform a complimentary auto body repair estimate (no appointment required). Our auto body collision professionals will evaluate the extent of your vehicle’s damage and estimate the cost of repairs. We’ll also provide you with an estimate of how long you can expect for the repairs. However, sometimes additional damage uncovered upon disassembly can mean additional subsequent repair costs and time.

Step #2 – Insurance

You may have already received an estimate from the insurance company handling your claim. To make your life easier, we will handle most of the paperwork and communications with the insurance company. For example, in the event of additional damage being uncovered after the initial estimate, we’ll take care of requesting the supplement from the insurance company handling the claim.

Step #3 – The Repair

Once your car has received the final damage assessment, we get started on your car’s repairs. This may require disassembly and ordering parts. At this stage, we will give you an update (if necessary) on how long your repairs will take. We also use genuine OEM parts to ensure quality repairs.
