Rear end accidents are getting all too common today. Most people that run into the back of another vehicle are almost always distracted, at least for the split second that it took to close the distance between them and the vehicle in front of them.
There are about 1.7 million rear end collisions a year in the U.S. alone. Most of these could be avoided if drivers weren’t distracted by cell phones, eating while driving, daydreaming or trying to input an address into their GPS navigation.
If you happen to be involved in a rear end accident, you are going to need to have your vehicle repaired. At Ogden Body Shop we specialize in all kinds of auto body repairs.
It is important to get your vehicle looked at as soon as possible after a rear end accident, even if it seems minor. This is because newer vehicles have more technology and a small hit in the rear end might cause the advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) to not function properly.
When you bring your vehicle into Ogden Body Shop, the first thing we will do is do a preliminary inspection of your vehicle. Tony Pinheiro, who has over 20 years in the industry, has an eye for detail and will determine if your vehicle is safe to drive or not. If it’s not safe, we will work with your insurance company to have a rental brought to the shop for you within the hour.
Once we determine the needed vehicle repairs, we start the process of the deep inspection by totally dismantling the damaged area down to the frame. We then determine what needs to be included in the repair plan: repairs, replacements, calibrations, and more.
After repairs and part installation, we prepare the vehicle for painting. This is a detailed process overlooked by the average consumer because it is not explicitly written on the estimate. Vehicle preparation for painting is a major determinant on the finished look of your vehicle. Keep in mind, when another auto body repair center provides you a less expensive quote, there are steps left out of the repair which relate directly to the quality of the repair.
The painter must mix a paint that matches the undamaged panels of the vehicle. Even with the correct color paint mix, the end result could vary depending on things like temperature, humidity, gun pressure or distance from the gun to the object being painted.
At Ogden Body Shop you can be sure you are getting the very best quality repairs. We guarantee the quality of our insurance contracted repair work.
We know that looking for someone to repair your vehicle after a collision can be stressful. The first thing to remember is that you are not obligated to use the repair facility that the insurance company recommends. Remember they have agreements with these auto body repair centers to get the job done as cheaply as they can which in most cases is not in your best interest.
You have the final say as to which auto body repair facility will fix your vehicle. Make Ogden Body Shop your first choice to look at your damage after a rear end accident. We promise we will treat your vehicle with care and restore it to its original pre-accident condition. Schedule a time today to get started on your repair!
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 service at the end of the project. If a technician is not willing to put in the time to be thorough, the vehicle will be serviced quick but not safe or done to standard. This likely means you will soon need the vehicle serviced 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 services 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. The first step in the process of actually servicing your vehicle, we disassemble or “teardown” the area of your vehicle that has been damaged. This is a necessary step so we can see beneath just the superficial, and determine whether or not there is deeper, more serious damage. This is also the part of the process when our appraiser from the Motor Vehicle Physical Damage Appraisers (MVPD) comes to assess for himself. When his job is done, a full written cost is made. The last step of the process is servicing the vehicle to your situation’s specific needs. This also involves ensuring that the framework is up to industry safety standards, and has not been compromised in the collision. Once we have finished servicing 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 serviced, 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!
