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 vehicle:
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 vehicle.
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 vehicle 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: Our Collision Centers will always recommend that you use genuine 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 vehicle safety and quality standards. This step is crucial to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive.
Finalization and Pickup: Once the repair is completed and passes the quality inspection, you'll be notified that your vehicle is ready for pickup. Review the work and ensure that you are satisfied with the repairs before leaving the shop.
Warranty and Follow-Up: Inquire about any warranties on the repair work. Select One Collision Center will offer a warranty on their repairs. Keep all documentation related to the repair and warranty for future reference.
