It's important to follow a process that ensures your vehicle is restored to its original condition with safety and quality in mind. Here's a step-by-step guide to navigating collision repair for your Toyota:
Assessment and Documentation: Immediately after a collision, if it's safe to do so, document the damage with photos or videos. This will be helpful for insurance claims and repair assessments.
Insurance Notification: Contact your insurance company to report the incident. They will guide you through their claims process, which typically includes providing details about the collision and the damage to your Toyota.
Choosing a Repair Shop: You have the right to choose where your vehicle is repaired. Come to Select One for repairs, as we have the training, tools, and equipment to repair Toyota vehicles according to the manufacturer's specifications.
Estimate and Approval: The repair shop will inspect the damage and provide an estimate for the repair costs. This estimate needs to be approved by you and, if applicable, your insurance company before work begins.
Repair Process: Toyota Certified Collision Centers will use genuine Toyota parts and follow specific repair procedures to ensure that your vehicle is restored to its factory specifications. The repair process can include body work, painting, and mechanical repairs, depending on the extent of the damage.
Quality Inspection: After repairs are completed, the vehicle undergoes a quality inspection to ensure that all work meets Toyota’s safety and quality standards. This step is crucial to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive.
