08 Apr Tear-Down and Disassembly
The first activity is to take apart the damaged area of the vehicle to clean the workspace and finalize our understanding of the repair. A production manager reviews the initial estimate, double checks parts and records any additional repairs necessary – it is not uncommon to discover additional damages in this phase – many parts that may have been damaged during an accident cannot be accessed or visible during the initial estimate or inspection.
If you were not using an insurance company and paying our of pocket, our estimators are very careful to be thorough and accurate with their initial estimate and avoid any additional charges. For insurance claims, additional damage is customary and a supplement is created. These changes are quickly communicated through are processes and computer systems and any additional parts are ordered immediately – we work very hard to make sure nothing causes a delay to your delivery date.
