While in the Shop

while in the shop

Once you have authorized the repairs, your vehicle is dispatched to the shop foreman, who will handle the blueprinting of the vehicle.

What is blueprinting? — Blueprinting is marking the vehicle with a water soluble marker as to what is being done to the particular part–i.e. replace fender, remove and install new molding, repair door, etc.

The vehicle is then assigned to the technician who performed the initial disassembly and evaluation of the collision damage. This ensures consistency in the repair process, reducing the risk of human error. The shop foreman then obtains all the parts needed for the repair. We recommend the use of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts, as they are designed to fit properly and are crash-tested to ensure accurate deployment of the vehicle’s Supplemental Restraint System–the safety features.

Note: Some insurance companies don’t approve OEM parts, but prefers to use aftermarket parts. Don’t let your insurance company’s policies lead to poor-quality repairs!

From there, the vehicle goes through the standard repair process. We perform any structural repairs, including straightening, alignment, and suspension re-assembly. We will also replace vital structural parts damaged in the collision. Finally, we finish it off by repairing or replacing any external body panels that might have been damaged.
