Our Paint Repair Process
The leading car scratch repair shop in L.A., we have developed a reliable and trusted process. First, we perform a thorough assessment of your car in our shop. The vehicle’s overall paint condition is examined to determine whether a car detail will restore its original look. Another option is to apply a new coat of paint. Our techs can do this without repeating the entire auto paint process, but they will effectively restore your vehicle so it looks like new.
At our auto body paint repair shop, we work quickly, without sacrificing quality. We also make the process even more efficient by handling your insurance claims. When it’s more practical to pay cash for repairs, we’ll let you know. Our team provides professional advice and assistance with insurance claims and work with insurance field inspectors. Once you report an accident, provide us with the insurance claim number, and we’ll handle all the paperwork, adjuster inspections, repairs, and, if necessary, rental car arrangements.
All the while, your vehicle will be restored to its pre-accident condition.
Should I Repair Minor Paint Damage?
You should consider going to a car scratch repair shop whenever you notice minor paint damage. Scratched or chipped paint can be worsened by washing your car, from bad weather, or through normal wear-and-tear. The paint can start to flake and peel. Over time, the underlying sealant may erode until the metal is exposed and, once this happens, rust can cause further damage. Therefore, even clear coat damage should be repaired to avoid hassles down the road.
Is Paint Damage Covered by Insurance?
That depends on the cause of the paint damage. If it is brought on by normal wear and tear, no, because aging and exposure to outdoor elements are considered normal. Comprehensive insurance may cover non-accident-related paint damage caused by vandalism, fire, or theft. For exterior paint damage caused by an accident, you’ll need collision coverage. Deductibles are another story. If the cost of repairing paint damage is less than your deductible, you’ll still have to pay the balance before your insurance kicks in, so filing a claim might not make financial sense.
