COLLISION REPAIR PROCESS

There are many steps involved in the repair process. As a general rule, the more damage caused in the accident, the more complex the repair process is. Listed below are the steps for an “average” collision repair.

1

ADMINISTRATIVE

After the estimate has been written, the insurance company and owner approvals are obtained.

2

PARTS/DISASSEMBLY

In most cases, parts are ordered before the vehicle goes into production. The estimate is given to the technician that has been assigned to repair your vehicle. Damaged parts are removed, and a list is prepared for the Customer Service Representative that details all hidden damage found at this time.

3

REVISED ESTIMATE

The Customer Service Representative makes changes to the estimate based on additional damage that is found and forwards this information to the insurance company. The vehicle owner is called with an update. Many times, additional parts will need to be ordered after the estimate is revised.

4

STRUCTURAL REPAIRS

If any damage is found to the inner structure, it is repaired on one of our frame racks.

5

COSMETIC REPAIRS

After removing the vehicle from the frame rack, sheet metal repair and replacement operations are performed.

6

REFINISHING/POLISHING

All panels that will need to be refinished go through a very thorough preparation process. The outside finish is applied in one of two Spraybake downdraft/heated spray booths. Then the exterior of the vehicle is polished as needed to match the original factory finish and texture.

7

REASSEMBLY

The vehicle goes back to the body shop to have trim such as door handles and moldings reinstalled.

8

MECHANICAL REPAIRS

Any mechanical operations that are performed by a specialist, such as an airbag replacement, are performed at this time.

9

DETAILING

The vehicle is cleaned thoroughly, inside and out.

10

QUALITY CONTROL

Each area that was repaired is checked closely to ensure that all work was properly completed. In addition, most repaired vehicles are road tested. If anything is found to be operating incorrectly, it is either repaired or if it is something not related to the loss, the customer is notified.

11

CUSTOMER CALLED

The customer is called during the repair process to keep them informed as to the status of the repairs.

12

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION INDEX

The customer is called approximately one week after they pick up their vehicle to make sure that they are happy with not only the repair work but with the entire repair process.
