Auto Body Repair Estimate Process

Los Angeles takes the prize on auto accidents, fender benders, key scratches, and door dings and dents. If you’re reading this article, you’re probably searching for a repair shop you can trust to provide quality cosmetic repairs at an affordable price. This is especially important if you have to pay out of pocket due to no fault of your own.

If it’s a major accident, repairing your vehicle will require auto body work. Determining your goal is key in this event. With a quick in-person assessment, SOS Autocraft can determine which method would yield the best results based for you.

Here’s the process in a nutshell. First we disassemble the damaged parts of your vehicle to access the underside of the damage, which may be greater than visible to the eye. We will then determine cost for repairs using our computerized estimating software and go over your options. Based on your decision, we will then order the proper manufacturer’s parts and use our color-matching software to determine the formula that matches your vehicle’s paint color. Once the parts arrive, we perform all the necessary body work, install the new parts, prime, paint (within our pressurized spray booth), blend, clear coat, and buff. Quality control during this process is meticulous to ensures your repairs are done correctly by our team of experienced auto body repair technicians.

For our out-of-pocket customers, we give you an estimate based on your financial needs. If for example, you have very few dollars, we may recommend repairing rather than replacing damaged parts. If parts are not repairable, we may recommend using recycled (used) parts.

Unsure Whether to Use Your Auto Insurance?

Just like that! You’re in a collision and faced with the urgent task of getting an estimate to determine if you should pay cash for the repairs or open an insurance claim. Well, you have found the right body shop to help you make that decision.

Depending on the type of accident, there may be damages not apparent until the vehicle is taken apart, so it’s best to bring your vehicle in for a physical inspection. We will visually evaluate the damage and provide an estimate based on what we can see from walking around and looking under the vehicle. Since we don’t work for insurance companies, you can be sure the estimate is to your benefit. You can then decide if it’s better to pay for the repairs yourself or go through your insurance company and pay only the deductible.

If you decide to use your insurance, we will work with your insurance field inspector to approve all the repairs needed to restore your vehicle to pre-accident condition.

Whether you make the decision to pay out of pocket or file an insurance claim, SOS Autocraft will provide you with friendly and efficient service. You will experience just how easy the auto body work process should be and your vehicle will be repaired using quality parts and materials along with expert craftsmanship–guaranteed!

Auto Body Repair & Paint vs. Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)

Had an accident and trying to decide if the traditional repair method of Auto Body Repair & Paint or PDR is best for your situation?

It all depends on the damage & accessibility and your goal.

Even the most experienced PDR technician could spend 8-10 hours completing a complex job that would take half that time using the traditional auto body work and paint method.

To make the smartest decision in this case, it would be best to have a shop that specializes in both Auto Body Repair & Paint and PDR look at the damage. This way, you know their recommendation is not motivated by not being able to offer a second option.
