If your car has been involved in a collision, you can turn to us to get the expert collision repair services you need. In this article, we’ll go over some key things that you should know about collision repair in order to make the best choice for your vehicle and needs.
• Appraisal is Key- When it comes to collision repair, a lot of your success depends on the skill of the appraiser who is assessing the damage. In many cases, drivers receive low estimates for their repair costs not because of a lack of damage, but because of a lack of experience that made the appraiser miss clear causes of concern. Our team has over 30 years of experience working on cars, so you can count on us to accurately assess the damage that your vehicle has sustained.
• You Can Choose Your Body Shop- Another thing you need to know about collision repair is that, while your auto insurance company can make recommendations as to what mechanic or shop to take the vehicle to, that decision is ultimately yours. If you disagree with the insurer’s recommendation, keep looking until you find a team you like.
• Like-New Results are Possible- Lastly, no matter what your car looks like after the collision, it is nearly always possible for a skilled collision repair team to restore it to a condition that is like new. Don’t give up hope if it seems that your car is beyond repair–just be prepared for the restoration process to take a while.
