Step By Step Of The Entire Process

1. Estimate

Estimates are visual inspections of vehicle damage, which is the very first step of the repair plan. We understand that the repair process can be trying in more ways than one. That’s why we offer free estimates to make the first step of your process as simple and smooth as possible. No strings attached.

Ray often tells customers that he is like the doctor and he will diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle. Completed on site, this process is most comparable to an X-ray at the doctor’s office. We combine repair planning with disassembly, scanning and surveying the damage with state-of-the-art tools minimizing hidden damages. Completing this analysis time of estimate helps prevent repair delays or surprise repairs in the middle of the process.

2. Repair

After all of the damages are documented, all parts are ordered, and a repair blueprint is built, we begin the physical repair of your vehicle. First, your vehicle goes through the body shop for sheet metal, structural, and non-structural repairs. Once complete, your vehicle moves right along to the paint shop where it is prepped and masked. Then, your vehicle goes into one of our heated, downdraft booths for painting and curing. Finally, after the paint process is complete, your vehicle is carefully reassembled and moves to our detail division.

3. Quality Inspection

You can rest assured that we inspect your vehicle between every step of the repair process. However, once your vehicle has been reassembled, we complete our Quality Inspection, ensuring that the parts fit, clips are secured, fluids are checked, battery and lights are operating appropriately, the board computers are not reading any errors on your vehicle, and much more. When we are certain that your vehicle is fully and correctly repaired, we give it a full detail and prepare it for delivery.

4. Delivery

That’s it! Your vehicle is ready for pick-up! Before we let you go, we’ll go over your vehicle’s repairs and answer any questions you may have. Now, you can enjoy our vehicle and know that not only were the dents removed, so are your doubts!

Love their personal service.
