You’ve been in an accident and your vehicle needs repairs. If you’re like many of our customers at On Line Collision, you want to know what to expect when it comes to getting your car back. After all, accidents are traumatic enough without having to add the stress of uncertainty into the fold.
We know how important it is to have your life return to normal as soon as possible after a collision. That is why our team of autobody repair specialists have put together a handy guide on how long it takes to complete collision repairs.
Factors that influence how long collision repairs take
The type of repair
No two autobody repair issues are the same. Even the most minor fender bender has many variables to consider—all of which can impact repair time. But generally, minor damage like bumper repair or surface scratches will take a few days to repair.
More extensive damage, on the other hand, is obviously going to require more time to repair. When your vehicle has been in a major accident, we may need to coordinate with the vehicle manufacturer to secure the proper factory-original parts. And if you have a rare or older car, it can add to the wait times to complete collision repair.
During the repair process, our collision repair specialists may discover further damage. If the underlying damage is significant, expect a lengthier process.
We understand the inconvenience that comes with going without your car. Whether you have been involved in an accident or are a victim of vandalism, we will provide a seamless repair service, getting you back on the road as soon as possible. With On Line Collision, you can put your mind at ease knowing that your vehicle is in the best hands in the business.
The insurance claim process
The insurance claim process can take a long time. Failure to get the paperwork done in a timely manner can cut into repair time, forcing you to wait longer than you need to.
After an accident, big or small, it can be a frustrating, time-consuming experience dealing with insurance companies. Fortunately, we have formed solid relationships with ICBC and all other BC insurance businesses, streamlining the entire process for you. If you have any insurance related questions, you can always reach out to us.
Collisions happen. If you get into one yourself, having a reliable autobody repair specialist working for you will go a long way to getting you back on the road as soon as possible.
