1 Estimate

A trained estimator spends at least 20 minutes looking over your vehicle to get an accurate damage assessment. It may also be necessary to have body panels removed and then later reinstalled to check for any repair further work below the sheet metal and bumpers.

2 Repair Planning

If you’re going through your insurance company for the collision work, our repair planners will finalize the damage estimate and send it off to your broker for you.

3 Customer/Ins Approval

After dropping off your car at the shop, our technicians will remove and take apart all damaged components in order to identify which parts need to be ordered from the supplier.

4 Order Parts

When the manufacturer-approved parts arrive from our wholesaler, we mirror-match them to ensure that they will fit and align perfectly on your vehicle.

5 Structure Repair

If necessary, your car’s frame and/or chassis will be repaired and aligned to the manufacturer’s specifications using high quality computer-based tools.

6 Body Repair

This is the most important step in laying the foundation for a seamless factory appearance. All parts are checked for fit and the body is repaired, sanded, and smoothed to a perfect uniformity.

7 Paint

Using environmentally friendly waterborne paints that match exactly to your car’s paint code, we apply a basecoat and multiple layers of clear coat for a thick depth of gloss.

8 Reassembly

After the paint has fully cured, we reinstall all remaining body panels and trim pieces. Our technicians also go through a checklist and ensure that all system sensors are reset to normal.

9 Detailing

Now our professional detailers spend the time to give your car a thorough inspection in and out. We also perform a wet sanding and a power polish (when necessary) to ensure a perfect paint finish with zero imperfections. A production coordinator will sign off for final approval, too.

10 Completed
