Collision Repair Process

Getting the Estimate

Our goal is to have your final cost be as close to your estimate as possible. When calculating your initial estimate, it will require your technician to disassemble the vehicle to reveal hidden damage. Our collision repair experts document all damage to provide accurate estimates of parts, materials and labor for the insurance company to decide if the repairs will be more than the value.

Structural Repairs

Once the estimate is approved, we get to work fixing the framework. We have state-of-the-art frame straightening machine, built for vehicles of all sizes. It utilizes an electronic measuring system to return the frame to its original measurements. Once complete, all the panels attached will fit the way it should.

Cosmetic Repairs

As your frame is being repaired, the auto body experts at Dependable Auto Body is salvaging all the parts they can and preparing new parts for installation. Once the frame is ready, the repaired and replacement parts are prepped for painting.


Dependable Auto Body uses PPG paint, basecoats and top coats for that direct-from-the-factory look. And with our color match technology, your paint will always match the original. This is very important when the entire car doesn’t need to be painted. Your vehicle is professionally painted in baked in our downdraft paint booth.


Once the paint has dried, your vehicle gets its missing panels back. Any finishing details, like striping, moldings and glass are installed to complete the process.
