How do I obtain a claim number?

Your insurance provider will give you a claim number once you report the accident and they appraise the damage. Save the claim number somewhere, and hand it in when you bring your vehicle for repair and autobody painting. Once the vehicle and claim number are in our possession, we will handle the repair process.

Can parts be ordered earlier?

Unfortunately, no. It is difficult to asses the damage done by looking at the outside, and thus we resolve to repair the vehicle from inside. Once the disassembly is done, it is then determined the number of parts that need replacing and one comprehensive order made.

Do you match the required paints and colors?

The paint job is a multi-layered process, which utilizes the finest colors and technology to ensure that we match the color to the factory paint. So, yes, we do make finishes that match the factory paint and give the car a whole new look.

How long it takes to repaint my car?

The disassembly and ordering of parts may take time. Once the order is made and delivered, we always contact you and give a scheduled completion date. On average, the whole repair and paint job takes an average of 8-10 days, which includes weekends.

When Can I Wash My Car?

After a fresh paint job, it is advisable to desist from washing your vehicle at a commercial carwash, using stiff brushes, wiping it down, and driving on gravel roads.
