Frequently Asking Questions

We routinely repair relatively new (within the last 15 years) foreign and domestic cars, pick-ups, vans, SUVs, trucks and motorcycles.
Insurance companies and auto repair facilities may provide an estimate that is based only on visible damages. Some are based on visible damage and what, the likely hidden damage is to the vehicle. Other estimates, which are much more accurate, are based on an actual inspection of the vehicle when parts are removed and all hidden damage is revealed. Estimates may also vary if the estimate specifies aftermarket parts rather than OEM parts.
OEM parts are made by the Original Equipment Manufacturer. Aftermarket parts are produced by other manufacturers, and may be less expensive while of equal quality to OEM.
Repair times vary depending on the damage to be repaired and from one vehicle to another. We will, on request, give you an estimate of the repair time after we have completed a thorough evaluation of the visible and hidden damage and have determined when our suppliers will be able to deliver all the necessary parts.
