What type of warranty will I have on the repairs?
We will warranty our repairs and workmanship for the as long as you own the repaired vehicle.
Will I have a deductible?
Unless you are a claimant, (the other driver’s fault) deductibles are determined by your insurance policy and if your policy dictates a deductible, you will pay the deductible to us when your vehicle is completed.
Will I need any special care or washing instructions?
Yes, the first 30 days wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and a very mild car wash solution using a soft cloth or sponge. Wash your vehicle in the shade.
Do not use a commercial car wash that uses stiff brushes or sponges, which could mar the finish and damage the surface.
Do not "dry wipe" your vehicle. Dry wiping can scratch the finish.
Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days.
Avoid parking under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. Bird droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface.
Tree sap can mar or spot a freshly painted surface.
Do not scrape ice or snow from the newly painted surface.
Do not wax or polish the vehicle. This will allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
