Before you schedule a free estimate at Yark Collision Center, we love informing customers about how the entire process works. We aim to make everything seamless and stress-free, from the initial estimate to the final touches. Here’s a synopsis of what the process looks like when you choose our Toledo body shops.
Free Auto Repair Estimate
During the preliminary estimate, we’ll have our appraiser inspect your vehicle and enter all the necessary information into our system. We’ll then generate a report of the work that needs to be completed and the car repair costs involved.
Find a Yark Collision Center Location
Did you know that we have two conveniently located collision service centers for you to turn to? You can choose the Yark Collision Center at 6111 Fantasy Drive in Toledo. Their phone number is 419-842-7883. Or, go to the Yark Ford Collision Center at 2913 Republic Boulevard in Toledo. Their phone number is 419-380-1091.
Insurance Approval for Body Repairs
In conjunction with the free estimate, an appraiser from your auto insurance company may provide their own vehicle inspection. Before our team handles any repairs, we’ll make sure our estimate aligns with your insurance company’s. If a vehicle is deemed a total loss, no repairs will be required.
Additional Repairs Following Disassembly
If we’ve disassembled your vehicle and noticed additional repairs that need to be addressed, we’ll take photos of the damage and contact you or your insurance company for approval. We’ll also generate a supplement to your original estimate to cover additional auto repair costs.
Order Auto Parts in Toledo
If we don’t have what your vehicle requires already in-house, our technicians will order auto parts necessary to finalize your car’s repairs in a timely fashion. If there are special components we need to order, we may need to add time to the overall process.
Frame & Body Repairs
We use a cutting-edge repair system to meticulously measure, analyze and align the frame of your vehicle to its original factory specifications. Following frame repairs, we’ll take a look at the body of your car and replace any necessary exterior parts.
Paint Matching & Mixing
Our Toledo auto body repair technicians use a digital paint-mixing system to match your vehicle’s paint color 100% accurately. How do we ensure this? We sand down the area that needs to be painted, then we’ll mask and prime it for refinishing.
The Reassembly Process
Once we’ve addressed and handled all the repairs needed, we’ll begin the reassembly process. By doing this, we’re able to ensure that your vehicle is structurally sound and ready for the road again.
