Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I get a claim number?

Claim numbers are issued by your insurance company at the time you report your accident. Just jot it down and bring it in with you when you come in to begin the repair process, we will do the rest.

Will you use aftermarket parts?

It is our policy to write the estimate per the insurance companies guidelines. If your insurance policy allows for aftermarket parts they will be written. However we work with local dealers to match the OEM price to the A/M price. So it is a Win Win. You get the OEM part for the A/M price.

Will parts be preordered?

No. Since the process of fixing a car starts from the inside, there will most likely be hidden damage. The parts order is held until the vehicle has gone through a proper disassembly. Then all the parts are ordered once and received once. This helps eliminate multiple starts and stops on a repair and results in a more timely repair.

When will my car be complete?

You will be notified by phone when your vehicle is ready to be picked up. You can also check this website. You will see a message next to the last picture of your vehicle telling you that your vehicle is ready to be picked up. Feel free to call or e-mail your advisor during the repair process if you have questions or concerns.

Who do I pay my deductible to?

If your deductible is not waived, it will be your responsibility to pay us when you pick up your vehicle. If you aren’t sure about your deductible, you can call your agent and he can tell you whether your insurance company has waived your deductible or whether it will be your responsibility.

What forms of payment do you accept?

The easiest and most convenient way to pay for your portion of the repairs to your vehicle is to endorse your insurance claim check and submit it to the shop. Of course, cash and checks are always welcome. Credit cards may also be used. We accept Visa, Master Card and Discover. For more information, please see our Payment Policy.

What are betterment charges?

Parts that wear out and need replacement with time and use (i.e., tires, batteries, and suspension parts) are commonly subject to betterment charges when they are replaced during the repair process. These betterment charges are determined by your insurance company and are pro-rated based on actual miles on your vehicle.

Can I wash my car?

Recommendations and precautions in the first 30 days after paint and body work on your car:

 

DO
  • Wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and a very mild car wash solution using a soft cloth or sponge.
  • Always use clean fresh water.
  • Wash your vehicle in the shade
DON’T
  • Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface.
  • Do not “dry wipe” your vehicle. Dry wiping can scratch the finish.
  • Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days.
  • Avoid parking under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. Bird droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface. Also, tree sap can mar or spot a freshly painted surface.
  • Do not spill gasoline, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid, or windshield solvent on the new finish.
  • Do not scrape ice or snow from the newly painted surface.

Recommendations and precautions in the first 90 days

DON’T
  • Do not wax or polish the vehicle. This will allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
