Collision Repair Process
Estimate Our team will inspect your vehicle to see what damage exists. Keep in mind, not all damage can be seen on initial inspection, hidden damage can be found once the vehicle is disassembled.
Your vehicle will be meticulously disassembled in the impacted area to uncover any hidden damage. Communication with the customer and insurance company may be necessary, if additional damage is found.
The availability of parts is checked and parts are ordered to make every effort to keep the repairs on schedule.
Any structural repairs as a result of the accident must be repaired first. All of Pato Bravo’s facilities utilize computer-based measuring systems to analyze the vehicle frame and ensure that it is brought back to manufacturer specifications, if applicable.
Skilled technicians repair or replace exterior body panels. All sheet metal is installed and aligned. Vehicles are quality-checked at this stage before moving into the paint department.
Panels are primed, painted, and sealed using only the highest quality, manufacturer-approved, waterborne paint.
Final vehicle moldings and detail pieces are put back on the vehicle. It is at this stage that the electronics on your vehicle will be scanned post-repair to ensure that all systems are functioning properly.
The vehicle is thoroughly cleaned inside and out to remove any dust, dirt, or particles from the repairs. The vehicle will be quality checked again to ensure that all repairs are complete, and the vehicle has been brought back to pre-accident condition.
The Pato Bravo team will explain the repairs performed, and provide final paperwork, and post-repair instructions.
