Auto Body Repair Damage Analysis Midlothian Virginia
Is Damage Analysis Really Necessary?
After you’ve gotten through the mess of an accident and it’s time to get your car repaired, don’t settle for the cheapest price and quickest turnaround time. Be sure to ask questions and get an answer you can understand. If you are not informed, your vehicle may not be repaired to safety standards. Conner Brothers works with all of our clients to ensure they understand that Auto Body Repair Damage Analysis Midlothian Virginia is necessary, and worth the time.
Our professional staff works directly with your insurance company and can give you definite answers on both of these important questions and many more that will come up along the way. As a Gold Class certified auto body repair shop, Conner Brothers Collision Center specializes in Auto Body Repair Damage Analysis Midlothian VA.
It has been reported that a typical repair estimate covers only 50-60% of the overall cost for repairs to a vehicle. What we are talking about are estimates that are written by your insurance company. Even most body shops are not providing the most accurate estimates. How do you know for sure the estimate accounts for all the damage sustained and equally important, how about the repair processes as outlined by your vehicle’s manufacturer? For the very best estimate, you want to use a shop that performs what we call “Damage Analysis.”
Conner Brothers and our I-CAR Platinum trained staff understand the impacts of vehicles and where the most damage may occur based on the type of collision. Auto Body Repair Damage Analysis Midlothian Virginia includes a complete disassemble and removal of all the damaged parts and all the related items necessary to compete the repairs. As an example, if we are to paint your passenger side door we need to blend into the front fender and rear door in order for the paint to match. The right paint job requires the fixtures, such as the rear door handles, belt moldings, and door moldings to be removed. We follow all OEM’s guidelines to isolate any potential problems that might arise later, such as a broken part or a painted molding that needs replacing.
The next step in the process is for our I-CAR Platinum Estimators to document all the damage. These highly trained individuals carefully photograph and label all the damaged parts in our estimating program. Proper documentation of damaged parts and following all OEM processes enables us to properly repair your car back to a “Crash Worthy” state. Even though most folks want to know how much and when their cars will be repaired, it is our belief they also do not want to compromise the safety of the occupants in the process. At Conner Brothers, our focus is your family’s safety. Repairs done right has been our mantra for years and never has it been more important that today.
Damage Analysis is a meticulous process that could take as much as 8-12 hours, depending on the damage. Once we complete the Damage Analysis, we can provide an exact quote for what the cost of the repairs will be.
But you have a second question, “How long will it take?” This question cannot be determined with any accuracy until all of the parts have been received. We’ve talked about OEM vs Aftermarket parts in a recent blog. (chance to link to it) Parts procurement is the most challenging problem faced by all body shops. We have very limited control over what happens at the dealer. While we have wonderful relationships will all manufacturers, shipping is out of our control. We will complete the repair as quickly as possible, but we do not cut corners. So when you ask yourself, “When will my car be done?”, think about the quality repair and know that when you get your vehicle back, it is done right the first time.
At Conner Brothers, we work very hard to eliminate all the variables possible during the repair process. All the while ensuring your family’s safety. Repairs done Right is not just a catchy slogan, it’s our passion. We were the first body shop in Virginia or maybe the U.S. to guarantee repairs for life, and we are now the first company to define “Damage Analysis”.
