How long will the repairs take?

Your service advisor can give you a target completion date to complete the repairs to your vehicle.

How can I get a rental car?

Check with your policy and call your insurance company to find out if you have rental coverage and what your specific limitations are. If you have rental reimbursement coverage, our service advisor or insurance adjuster can help set up your rental reservations for you.

How will I know when my car is done?

Your service advisor will be in constant contact to keep you aware of the progress being made on your car. Feel free to call or e-mail your advisor during the repair process if you have questions or concerns.

Is there a warranty on the repairs to my vehicle?

Yes. We provide a written Lifetime Warranty on body and paint repairs for as long as you own your vehicle; and 12,000 miles written Warranty on all mechanical repairs. This warranty is non-transferable.

What are Betterment Charges?

Parts that wear out and need replacement with time and use (i.e., tires, batteries, exhaust and suspension parts) are commonly subject to betterment charges when they are replaced during the repair process. These betterment charges are determined by your insurance company and are pro-rated based on actual miles on your vehicle.
