The collision repair process is a mystery to most people. You take your damaged vehicle to an auto body shop, and when you come back a few days later, voila! Your vehicle is as good as new. In fact, quality collision repair makes expert use of art and technology to repair almost all kinds of damage. Here’s a brief look at the magic behind the quality collision repair process:
Before repairs can really begin, the auto body experts need to understand what they’re dealing with. After carefully examining the damage to your vehicle, the team members will explain which repairs are necessary in a clear, honest manner. We’ll also negotiate with your insurance company so you don’t have to pay an exorbitant amount for repairs.
Checking vehicle systems
After we analyze the exterior damage, we’ll document mileage, fuel level, and overall vehicle condition to ensure that your vehicle doesn’t need additional repairs. We’ll also clean your vehicle inside and out to make the repair process easier.
Duplicating factory finish
One of the hardest parts of collision repair is duplicating a vehicle’s paint color. Luckily, this is our specialty. Instead of applying slapdash patches of mismatched paint, we use advanced computer technology to match your paint color as precisely as possible. We then apply the paint in a pressurized downdraft “clean room” to minimize paint defects.
Quality control inspection
After reassembling and repainting your vehicle, our auto body specialists will perform a final inspection. During the inspection, we run through a checklist to ensure that your vehicle is as close to pre-accident condition as possible. We’ll then give your vehicle another thorough cleaning and give it back.

Many auto body shops are only concerned with profits and revenue. Unfortunately, this business strategy comes at the cost of customer service. Choose an auto body shop company that cares about more than the bottom line—these customer-oriented businesses offer a better repair experience.
Use a body shop’s lobby and customer service to determine if a company prioritizes their clients. Customer-oriented businesses work hard to provide a friendly and inviting atmosphere. This atmosphere is based on a clean work place and helpful employees. You can test a body shop’s customer service with ease—ask a few questions and pay attention to the way an employee handles your problems.
Companies that choose to reduce waste are also interested than more than the bottom line. After all, the auto body repair process can put tons of materials into the waste stream. Collision repair specialists have a choice when they dispose of their extra materials, and eco-friendly businesses take time to separate and recycle used auto parts.
A body shop’s priorities are often reflected in their pricing. Exorbitant fees reflect a company with little regard for customer fairness. Alternatively, a customer-oriented shop will charge affordable and competitive rates. Use careful price comparisons to find the right body shop for your repairs.
Extra perks show that a company is willing to go the extra mile for their customers. For example, many top-rated body shops offer complimentary tow services to every customer. An auto body shop can also put the customer first by offering 24-hour repairs and secure vehicle storage.
