FAQ’s

There is no need to get more than one estimate. An initial estimate is simply a starting point to the true cost of the repair, as we can only write what we see. Unless your damage is strictly cosmetic, the best process for a true cost of repair is to bring your vehicle in to expose the greatest extent of the damage which will give you a complete repair plan.
If you choose to get more than one estimate, they should be about the same amount. The only differences there might be are the labor rate, the approach to the repair, and whether new, used or aftermarket parts are being used. If you are confused over comparing estimates you have, we are pleased to go over them with you.
As stated above, unless the car is completely diagnosed, then more steps will be added to the repair. This is known as a supplement. Our customers are notified of any supplemented amounts, even if they are being billed to the insurance company.
