If you’ve been in a collision and your car has been damaged, you know what an upsetting experience this is. Not only are you not able to get around the way you want to, but your car that you’ve been working so hard to pay for and that you’re very proud of is now damaged. One of the questions you may have is how much does auto bodywork cost?
As a Taunton collision center, we hear this question all of the time. And sometimes people get frustrated because we can’t give them an instant answer. But that’s not how bodywork actually works. Before we can tell you how much it will cost to fix your car, we actually need to see your car and discover what’s wrong with it.
You don’t always see all the damage that occurs in a car accident right away. There can be real, serious damage to your car’s frame or mechanical systems that’s invisible to the untrained eye. Obviously, our professional reputation as a Taunton collision center is important to us. We can’t be sending people out there in unsafe cars. That’s why we do a thorough end-to-end inspection of every vehicle before we begin working on it.
During this inspection process, we will determine what it will take to make your car roadworthy again. Additionally, we will determine what is necessary to restore your car to its pre-accident condition. This can include mechanical repairs, bodywork repairs, glass repairs, and repairs to the paint.
The reason we do this type of determination is we’ve found that people enjoy having a range of options when it comes to having their cars repaired. We provide estimates for all of our services, so car owners can choose what repairs they would like to have done immediately and what repairs they will have done later when the budget allows.
