Professional Car Collision Repairs
Just as no two car accidents are exactly alike, no two collision repairs are identical, either. Years of experience of dealing with a variety of accidents can provide the know-how required to repair vehicles that have undergone all kinds of damage. Here is a summary of the most common auto repairs that we handle at our Vancouver and Richmond Grandcity.
If your car has withstanded serious damage, it may require what is known as a full collision repair. This may involve the replacement of one or more parts of your vehicle, as well as the repair of the inner mechanics of your vehicle. This type of repair will often require your vehicle to be stationed at the repair shop for several days or longer.
Automobile Glass Repairs
A car’s windshield is tough, but it can still be vulnerable to the damage of flying rocks and debris. An automobile glass repair can involve anything from a simple spot to a full crack that covers the width of an entire front or back windshield.
Sometimes, whether it is due to a multi-vehicle accident or hitting an obstacle, the wheels of our vehicles can become misaligned, which can in turn cause a domino effect of problems for the driver. A professional auto body shop can successfully re-align your tires so that your car can operate as intended.
Dents are one of the most common forms of car damage. They can come from a variety of sources, such as from other vehicles or from the accidental hitting of a pole or other obstacle. While some dents involve a simple fix, some are more complicated and may even require the replacement of certain car parts.
Scratches are an important part of owning and operating a vehicle. While some scratches can fly under the radar and be relatively unnoticeable, some car owners prefer to have their vehicles completely free of scratches. Some also may have an impermanent relationship to their vehicle, such as a lease, and may be required to have any scratches repaired.
When you trust your car repairs to Grandcity, you do not need to be inconvenienced by having your car in the shop for a number of days. We have relationships with several local car rental outlets and can help arrange replacement vehicles for you so that you are still able to get from A to B while your vehicle is being repaired.
All of the repairs done at Grandcity whether at our Vancouver or Richmond locations come with a lifetime warranty, so you can rest easy knowing that your vehicle repair is being completed to match our very high standards.
What Goes Into the Auto Repair Process?
1. Proper Vehicle Repairs are Determined
Before we get started on your vehicle’s required repairs, our experts will first determine the kind of damages that have been sustained, as well as the best course of action to take.
2. Parts are Ordered
Oftentimes, a repair will require the ordering of parts from your vehicle’s manufacturer. This ensures that we are using the correct parts for your vehicle that will have it looking as good as new.
3. Repairs are Planned
Like any successful professional, any good car repairman (or woman) is a planner. Before we even begin on your repair, we will first evaluate what it will entail.
4. Client is Updated
Now that we have a better idea of the kind of repairs that we will be completed on your vehicle, we are able to update you, the client, on what you can expect in terms of financial commitments, as well on what kind of timeline your repairs will follow.
5. Repairs are Undertaken
Now the fun part happens! The repairs will now be undertaken on your vehicle.
6. Paint is Completed (if required)
In some instances, complete car paint or a paint touch-up job may be required. If this is the case for your vehicle, we will fix the paint up after the other repairs have been completed.
7. Repairs are Checked
Even if the repairs are done, it doesn’t mean that our work ends here. It is imperative that we check all of our work to make sure that you are getting your vehicle back in its optimal condition.
8. Client is Notified and Picks Up Vehicle
Once the repairs are officially completed, it is time for you and your vehicle to be reunited. If you have opted to have a replacement vehicle, you will be able to drop it off directly at the auto body shop, for your convenience.
