After a collision, the last thing you want to deal with is high prices and mediocre auto body repairs. That is why when you come to Ogden Body Shop for vehicle repairs after a collision, you will be approached with only affordable rates and superior service.
We are happy to say that we specialize in a wide range of auto body repair solutions. So whether you leave an accident with minimal damage or serious damage to your car, we can help. We promise to take a look at the damage thoroughly, get it appraised, and do what is necessary to restore the body of your vehicle back to its original state.
Also, our collision repair process reduces the cost of claims to mitigate the impact on your yearly insurance rates – yet another reason to trust Ogden Body Shop with your auto body repairs!
Ogden Body Shop is committed to delivering quick and affordable collision repair, vehicle disassembly and inspection needed as a result of the following:
The repair process is directly correlated to the success of the project. If a technician is not willing to put in the time to be thorough, the vehicle will be repaired quickly but not safely or done to standard. This likely means you will soon need the vehicle repaired again, or will quickly realize you need to bring it to another shop. If the process takes too long, you will most likely get a vehicle that is safe, but that took up too much time waiting for.
Lucky for you, the experts at Ogden Body Shop have the perfect repair process down pat! The first step to this process is you giving our shop a call. During this call, we will ask what type of repairs you were looking for, if you were recently in an accident, etc. At the end of the call, we will schedule an appointment so we can observe the car ourselves and see what we think will need to be done. We will then communicate this with you and make sure that you understand everything we are planning to do, including our methods, how long we believe it will take, etc.
Once we have finished repairing your vehicle, we will give you a call and arrange for pick up. At this time, if we have given you an Enterprise rental car to use while your car was being repaired, you can trade that car back to us. We will return the rental for you, so all you have to worry about is taking your vehicle back home with you!
One of the most notable benefits we offer is pickup and delivery services. When you initially call us, you can let us know if you will need a rental car to use while we finish servicing your vehicle. We will have an Enterprise car rental ready for whenever you drop your car off, and then will swap with you when your car is ready to be brought home. We bring the rental car back, so you have no responsibilities except to drive your repaired vehicle home!
That isn’t the only unique benefit we offer- we also offer free car repair estimates! It is important to note that we do charge for estimates, but that initial estimate fee is waived when you allow us to do the post accident repairs! This means that the only cost you have to worry about is the cost of the repairs themselves.

New ParagraphOnce we receive your call, we will schedule your vehicle for what we call a teardown. This is the beginning of the collision repair process. We disassemble all the damaged areas to find damage that is not visible. This damage is commonly referred to as “hidden damage”.
With the vehicle disassembled, the appraiser can properly inspect the vehicle to develop a list of necessary repairs and replacement parts.
The appraiser uses the information gained during this disassembly and inspection step of the collision repair to develop the written cost estimate for repairs.
We have one of the top-rated, state licensed Motor Vehicle Physical Damage Appraisers (MVPD) on staff to perform this step for you. He has been in the industry for over 30 years and has the sharpest eye for detail so that no damage goes overlooked on your collision repair estimate.
The body of your vehicle is typically the portion of the car that is visible. Bumpers, hood, fenders, doors, etc. Depending on the damage, the part may need to be replaced with a new one.
For example, a cracked headlight will be replaced, but a slightly dented door may be repaired. Our appraiser will determine the best way of performing the repairs on your vehicles to maximize quality, safety, and cost effectiveness.
The next step in the collision repair process after the body work is complete is to prepare the vehicle for being painted. MOST shops do not properly “prep” the vehicle for paint because it is time consuming and not readily apparent after the job is painted and completed.
If a vehicle is not prepped properly, the paint job will eventually fail over time, but probably won’t be seen until several months or even a year later. This is typically what happens with those TV commercial type shops that put more work into their advertising than the work on your vehicle. If you pay a low price, it is because a step is being cut short to save money. This is most likely the step you are not getting with other shops.
For customers of our insurance direct repair programs, we guarantee the paint job for the duration of your ownership of the vehicle.
Once the vehicle has been prepped, Ogden Body Shop can now take the necessary steps to paint the vehicle to bring it back to life.
This is the step that is most apparent to the outside world. The repairs can be performed perfectly, but without a clean paint job the repair is not complete.
Ogden Body Shop uses only quality paint for your vehicle as we would for our vehicle repair.
