Car Collision Repair Process

Being involved in an auto accident can be extremely stressful.  Add to that the anxiety of finding a body shop that does quality work in a timely matter. By bringing your car to Pat’s Body Work you can be assured that your car is in good hands.  We have been repairing cars since 1977. Here’s what you can expect when having your car repaired at Pat's Body Work:

Step 1 - Estimate

Upon your arrival we will greet you and listen to your needs. One of our Estimators will perform a visual inspection and explain the process that will be required to restore your vehicle to its pre-accident condition. After the initial appraisal, we will determine the amount of time it will take for us to complete the work on your vehicle.  We know how important your time is and we give you an expected finish date at this point.

Step 2 – Repairs

We move quickly to determine the extent of the damage to your frame.  All structural repairs require precise equipment to enable accurate measurement and exact re-construction to restore your car’s frame structure.

Step 3 – Paint

If your vehicle requires new paint, it will get the VIP treatment at Pat’s Body Work. We will sand, block and prepare your car by hand for painting. We use the finest quality PPG Paints.

Step 4 – Vehicle Delivery

After a complete inspection of your vehicle repair, we certify that we have taken all the necessary steps to restore your car to its pre-crash condition. You will be notified when you can pick-up your car. When you arrive, your car will be waiting for you washed and ready to go after your inspection.
