Our Auto Body Repair Process

When accidents occur, not only do parts need to be replaced, but they may also need straightening. Our technicians will realign your parts to their original factory specifications to ensure optimal performance.

After making the underlying repairs, we work to make the vehicle’s exterior as aesthetically appealing as it was before. We utilize a high-quality, advanced paint system that produces original factory paint colors and a high gloss protective finish. Once the repair process is complete, we will go over the details and add the finishing touches, like the replacement of body side moldings, emblems, and stripes.
