FAQ

Yes. We are open Monday thru Friday 8:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday 10am to 2pm.
Yes. It is our policy to order the OEM (original manufacturer) parts for your vehicle at the time that we write the estimate and schedule your vehicle for drop-off. However, our Blueprinting process, the most thorough in the industry, may find additional damage that was not initially found by the insurance adjustor. We always use OEM (original manufacturer) replacement parts in the repair and restoration of your vehicle to showroom condition.
Not necessarily. A car is determined to be a total loss entirely at the discretion of the liable insurance company. Factors influencing this decision are the expense of the repair, the value of the damaged vehicle at auction, the complexity of the repair, the expected time to repair, the desire of the vehicle owner and other factors.
Your Customer Service Representative (CSR) will provide you with an estimate of the time it will take to complete as soon as a date can be projected. Every vehicle we repair and restore is unique based on the age, brand, model and extent of the damage we find during our Blueprint process. Our goal is to restore your vehicle to factory standards as quickly as possible with every consideration given to safety and performance as established by the original manufacturer.

Every insurance policy is unique. Your insurance policy will determine the total deductible you will be responsible for. If you aren't sure about your deductible, you can call your CSR who can tell you whether your insurance company has waived your deductible or whether you will need to pay the deductable when the repair and restoration of your vehicle has been completed.
We accept cash, banker’s checks and personal checks. We are not setup to accept credit cards or debit cards.
To keep your car’s finish looking like new, we highly recommend that you follow these useful tips:
• Hand wash your vehicle with warm water and a mild auto wash detergent in a shaded area.
• Remove stains and bird droppings as soon as possible to prevent acid etching the new paint finish.
• Avoid washing your vehicle with hard water.
• Avoid polishing or waxing for 90 days.
• Avoid drying your vehicle with a dry cloth to prevent scratching the finish.
• Avoid commercial auto washes for 90 days.
• If hand-held pressure washers are used, be aware they are capable of
extreme pressures and can damage paint finishes.
• Avoid spilling chemicals such as antifreeze or coolant on the finish.
• Avoid scraping snow or ice from the vehicle’s finished area.
