Geneva Auto Body now offers a paintless dent removal technique to repair dings, dents, creases and hail damage. Specialized tools are used to access the area behind the damage and then the metal is gently pushed back to its original form, preserving the exterior finish and structural integrity of the vehicle.
Auto Body Repairing and Painting
Keeping your vehicle in top condition is important in order to maximize its resale value and keep you and your passengers safe. Because our vehicles are susceptible to damage from traffic accidents and environmental hazards like dirt, air pollution, and sun, it’s likely that you will have to make at least one trip to an auto body shop. With today’s advanced technology and equipment, auto care professionals offer expert services to meet all of your motor vehicle paint and repair needs.
Computerized Measuring Systems
Whether you are involved in a minor fender bender or a major collision, there could be damage to your vehicle that is not readily apparent. Computerized laser measuring systems can detect hidden damage that visual inspections can miss and they act as a guide to ensure that structural repairs are done to correct specifications. These systems also provide documentation of your vehicle’s condition before, during and after the repairs have been made.
Because today’s vehicles are increasingly complex, state-of-the-art equipment is now used for the precise, technical work needed to straighten a damaged frame. Auto body technicians chain or clamp frames and sections to machines that use hydraulic pressure to align the damaged parts of the car.
Auto Paint Color Matching
Restoring your vehicle’s paint has become easier with today’s computer-based color matching systems. Repair paint systems analyze paint and color tones to accurately match your car’s color, regardless of its model or manufacturer.
The first step in the repair process is the writing of the estimate. When you bring your vehicle into Geneva Auto Body, one of our estimators, will take pictures, assess the damage, and create an initial estimate of the repair costs. Once this estimate is complete, we can submit it to your insurance company for approval.
2. Tear Down/Disassembly
During the Tear Down/Disassembly process, our technicians will begin removing the damaged parts from your vehicle and inspect it for any further damage that was not visible during the initial estimate. If additional damage is discovered, we will contact your insurance company and adjust the estimate accordingly. This is known as supplemental damage and needs to be authorized before the repair can continue.
3. Body Repair
During this stage, our technicians will repair or replace any damaged parts on your vehicle. In most cases, this is the most time consuming part of the repair process. Once all the damaged parts are repaired or replaced, they will be prepped for paint.
4. Prep For Paint
During the Prep for Paint process, any damaged parts or areas of your vehicle are cleaned, masked, and prepared for the painting technicians.
The Paint/Refinish stage involves priming and painting any damaged parts or areas of your vehicle. Our skilled paint technicians will first color match your paint and then begin the multiple stages of paint application. Once painted, all parts or areas of the vehicle will be clear coated and allowed to dry.
The Assembly process involves putting all of the repaired and refinished parts back on the vehicle. During this process, our technicians will reassemble your vehicle back to factory manufacturer specifications.
7. Detail/Final Inspection
The Detail/Final Inspection stage involves cleaning, vacuuming, and polishing your vehicle. Once your vehicle is fully detailed, it will be fully inspected for delivery.
