When vehicles have both aesthetic and mechanical damage, and even damage to the frame, that’s where auto body repair shops come into play. Auto body repair takes into account the entirety of the vehicle, with a holistic approach to ensure a car looks and drives like it did before a collision. At an auto body shop, you can expect mechanics to evaluate all changes a vehicle has encountered and conclude the best approach to restoration.
Auto body damage encompasses quite a lot. Everyday vehicle collisions can typically classify as auto body damage, but the degree of damage varies. It may be minor, like a cracked windshield, or much more involved, like replacing an entire door panel. It also includes major structural repairs to vehicle alignment.
If your vehicle is safe to drive, then simply drop it off at the Cox Chevrolet Auto Body Shop and provide us with your insurance information. Otherwise, you can have it towed to us or contact us for assistance. From there, you should contact your insurance provider to initiate your claim. Meanwhile, we’ll go over your vehicle, paying close attention to detail, noting all necessary repairs, and creating an itemized list of parts. We go on to contact your insurer to verify coverage and work with the adjuster to get your claim approved. Even if you choose not to make a claim, we’ll provide you with a thorough evaluation of your vehicle’s condition and an estimated repair cost. We even offer a complementary courtesy shuttle service within an 8-mile radius of our dealership, and rental cars are available on site if your vehicle needs to stay for multiple days.
It’s simple and easy. If your car, truck, or van is safe to drive, drop it off at our shop and tell us your insurance carrier and policy number. If undrivable, have it towed to us, or let us know and we can arrange for towing or transporting.
Call your insurance company to start your claim. We’ll go over your vehicle carefully, noting all needed repairs. An itemized list of parts needed and time estimate for the work will then be prepared. We’ll contact your insurer to verify your coverage and work with the adjuster assigned to get your claim approved on-the-spot when possible.
Just tell us (it is usually in your best interest to protect yourself by making a report). Often minor repairs may not even be covered due to your “deductible.” We’ll still make a thorough evaluation of your vehicle’s condition and an estimate of repair cost. Then you can decide.
YES. The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.
