OUR COLLISION REPAIR PROCESS
What To Expect
In Your Collision Repair Process
Precision Body & Paint has served Oregon since 1975. Transparency with our customers is part of the Dedication to Excellence our shop was built on.
Find out more about what you can expect from the collision repair process.
Check into the body shop location, and we’ll begin an analysis of the damage to your vehicle.
Our technician will do a “pre-scan” with diagnostic equipment, searching for fault codes that indicate damaged components of your vehicle that need to be re-calibrated to restore your vehicle to pre-accident condition.
Once the pre-scan diagnostics have been completed, we continue our damage analysis by disassembling the areas of your vehicle that may have been affected by the accident.
We explore and address any areas of hidden damage beneath the surface to ensure your vehicle is restored to original safety and performance.
Once we’ve prepared your damage analysis, we’ll discuss it in detail. During this step, we’ll review the necessary parts, repairs, and costs. Once you approve the repair plan, Precision can take it from there.
We help with the paperwork necessary to complete your accident report and insurance claims forms. Once this phase of the repair process has been completed, we will also have obtained any 3rd party approvals necessary for the work to proceed.
Once we’re sure every piece of damage has been identified, we order parts, supplementing your repair plan & parts order as necessary.
Doing so helps avoid unnecessary delays by ensuring we have everything needed to repair your car before the repair step is initiated.
Once all parts have arrived (usually within 1-3 days), we replace all damaged parts and repair any damage to your vehicle’s unibody or “frame.”
Our structural repair and measuring systems replicate the conditions in the factory where your vehicle was built, making it possible to detect even the slightest structural deviations from original manufacturer tolerances.
After body work is complete and damaged parts are replaced, it’s time to prep the car for the paint booth. In a blend of artistry & science, our skilled painters, aided by computer, mix, match & tint a shade of paint to account for any color lot variations or fading from exposure to the elements.
The vehicle paint is then carefully blended around the damaged area to ensure the graduation between brand-new paint & older paint is seamless – invisible to even the most trained eye.
RE-SCAN & ROAD TEST
Once your vehicle has been repaired and reassembled, we perform post-repair diagnostic scans. This ensures that all your computer and safety systems have been recalibrated and are working correctly. These diagnostic capabilities set us apart from many other collision facilities.
They make it possible for us to ensure that your vehicle has been fully restored to pre-accident safety and performance.
Once all repairs have been completed, your vehicle is subjected to our rigorous quality assurance process.
Multiple trained and certified technicians audit the repairs specified in your repair planning, assuring that the vehicle returned to you has been fully restored and is ready to return to the road safely.
With quality repair from Precision, not only will your collision repairs go smoothly & quickly, you can get back on the road with confidence, knowing we guarantee the quality of our repairs – structurally & aesthetically.
Now you can enjoy your vehicle for many more years to come. Happy Driving!
