Why are estimates so different from one shop to another?
One of the reasons our estimate may differ from another shop is because we believe in writing a thorough estimate up front. Necessary repairs may be left out of another estimate making the dollar amount appear much less. In the end, once the repairs are complete, the total cost of repairs would be very similar. However, one of the things that sets us apart from other shops is the detailed steps we take in repairing a car, which may also account for any differences. For example, when we do any painting, we remove moldings, emblems, and other items that would get in the way of painting your vehicle as completely as possible. This is known as “remove and install.” Our goal with every vehicle is to bring your car back to the way it was before the accident.
