Collision Repair Timeline
After our collision repair specialists have your vehicle the process begins. This starts with disassembling the vehicle. All damaged parts are removed and if hidden damage is found, both you and your insurance company is notified. Next the frame is checked and returned to perfect pre-collision condition. Any damage to sheet metal is fixed or panels are replaced, and then painted to match the exact factory color of your vehicle. Finally the vehicle is completely reassembled to original manufacturer specifications.

Before the vehicle is returned to you an inspection of the vehicle is done to ensure that all systems work correctly, and all surfaces are like factory new. The vehicle is detailed and cleaned to be free of broken glass or any signs of the collision, or repair process.

Collision Repair Process
After a collision the repair process can be confusing and stressful for a lot of people. Why it seems to take so long, why it can be costly, and even how it is done can seem a mystery. Even if you have had body work in the past you probably didn’t stand around for hours watching how the work was done. Most of us imagine a technician slamming away with a hammer pound the dents out of our vehicles body panels. While that might be true for a few decades ago the modern body shop has become more complex, and more advanced.
A lot of people are just happy the car is back to looking like new and the damage is gone. However understanding the process helps understand how long it should take and what all happens to your vehicle when you have damage that needs to be repaired. Knowing what is going on also helps us understand the costs involved in repairing the vehicle.
Understanding can be gained by reading through the following information on the process for collision repair. There are seven phases of the collision repair process.
You don’t know the full extent of the damage or how much it will cost without an inspection that is conducted by the collision repair center’s estimator. Photos are taken, and a detailed documentation is kept and sent on to the insurance company and provided to the customer. If the damage is not covered by the insurance company the damage report is simply given to the vehicle owner. While every effort is taken to catch everything during these inspections there are times where damage is not discovered until after the vehicle is disassembled.
Once the parts have arrived at the collision repair shop the vehicle is disassembled to reach the point where the vehicle has not been damaged. At this point the frame is evaluated by an electronic measuring system to ensure that it is in factory specifications. Frame straightening machines are used to make sure the car is structurally sound and straight. Next any wheel alignment or suspension repairs are made, if needed. Body work is only done after the structural and mechanical issues are completely resolved. Body repair comes next to replace panels or remove dents and get the car ready for priming and paint.
Once all of the painting has been doing the rest of the car can be reassembled. This includes any hoses, electrical wiring, airbag control systems and other components that were removed for repairs. Moldings around windows and doors are also reinstalled or replaced at this point over many of the painted surfaces. Next a collision repair specialist will drive the car to make sure the electrical system, locks, doors, and windows are working properly.
When you come to pick up your vehicle after collision repair all of the work that was done should be clearly explained by the representative that you come to pick up your vehicle from. All expenses should be discussed and there should be an itemized list of all parts and repairs that were necessary to make the vehicle “like new” again. Customers are giving the opportunity to fully inspect the vehicle before signing off on the repairs and accepting the keys to the vehicle.
This is the point in the collision repair process that the insurance company can request a disassembly or full tear down to fully determine if it is cost effective to repair the vehicle. Parts or repairs are not done until both the insurance company and the insured vehicle owner approves the repairs. Final authorization is always up to the vehicle owner, but if insurance is needed to repair the vehicle the approval must also come from the insurance company. If the vehicle is still operable the parts will be ordered and the appointment will be made for a future date.
The body of the vehicle is carefully prepared so that the paint goes on right and sticks to the body right and has that perfectly smooth look. This is done by sanding any rough spots that were damaged and repaired and then applying primer to the areas. Next the base coat or color is applied to the vehicle, which is followed up with a clear coat to give the car that beautiful shine and protect the base coat color. Next the vehicle is cured with time and heat to make the paint dry and solid.
Part of getting your vehicle back from a collision center is getting it back clean. This doesn’t just mean that the exterior that has just been painted gets a polishing, buff, and maybe some wax. It means that the interior of the car has been vacuumed out and cleaned. Any glass remaining in the vehicle from a collision is a painful reminder and a potential hazard if you go reaching under your seats. All lights and signals are tested to ensure that the vehicle is ready and conforming to legally necessary automotive equipment. Once a vehicle can pass all tests the customer is called to let them know their vehicle is ready for pick up.
