Negotiating A Quality Repair

  • Five Things You Need to Know Before an Auto Accident

    Following are 5 things you need to know to successfully negotiate a quality repair with a minimum of confusion and frustration. Though you may not have control over being involved in an accident, by following these guidelines you can have control over the quality of repairs your vehicle will receive, and the accompanying peace of mind. Remember that you alone will have to live with the repaired vehicle.

    1. Keep in mind that insurers’ main business is making money, though they may promise you the world when vying for your policy dollars. It’s common for insurers to retain millions in profits annually through limiting or denying pay-out to repairers for certain necessary repair operations and materials. The result: If you aren’t watching, you may receive a repair of lesser quality than the “pre-loss condition” your policy promises. Insurers are increasingly dictating to repair professionals how your vehicle will be repaired, what type of parts will be used, in what time frame repairs will be completed, and at what price. This “cost-containment” pressure can result in repair practices that produce unsafe repairs and loss of resale value. Contrary to what you might be told, it is your right to choose the shop that will repair your vehicle.

    2. Deal with the shop that puts your concerns ahead of insurer alliances. While many collision shops are in business only for the money, and many have “partnered” with insurers in DRP arrangements (similar to medical HMOs), this does not necessarily insure their ability to cater to your personal needs and provide you a more positive repair experience. DRP agreements generally imply that the insurer will supply the DRP-partner shop an increased flow of insurer-directed work in exchange for that shop performing repairs in accordance with insurer-mandated guidelines which vary from company to company. The result is a repair facility that may not feel obligated to earn your business, exercise you right to choose. Before being involved in an accident, search out a collision shop that covets you as its customer and will go the extra mile to earn your valuable trust. Choose a shop that is interested in the quality of each repair, and satisfaction of every single customer, rather than insurer-directed volume.

    3. Take the initiative in choosing the shop that will repair your vehicle, rather than entrusting this all-important decision to an insurance representative. Some insurer representatives have become masters in the use of cleverly worded statements that direct work away from many quality-conscious shops, into shops with whom these insurers have agreements, sometimes forcing these shops into questionable practices at your expense. Your auto is a major investment; choose a collision repairer based on the testimony of satisfied friends. Also, before an accident occurs, review your insurance policy’s fine print with your agent and attorney to confirm it doesn’t restrict your right to patronize the shop of your choice.

    4. Make sure your vehicle will be repaired using Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts where ever possible. OEM parts and components have been designed and manufactured to very strict tolerances and collision specifications by your auto’s manufacturer. If you aren’t watching, though, the replacement parts installed on your vehicle may be of much lower quality. Insurance companies, seeking low-cost substitutes to OEM crash parts, created the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), touted as “a standard setting organization to insure the quality of (aftermarket / imitation) crash repair parts.” But Consumer Reports (Feb, 99) testing told a much different story: “Shoddy auto parts: parts that don’t fit, bumpers that shatter, fenders that rust.” Following rigorous laboratory testing of these mostly “CAPA certified” imitation parts, their conclusion was that “cheap car parts can cost you a bundle.” Don’t become the loser in this shell game. Only OEM replacement crash parts perform as originally intended, restore your vehicle’s pre-loss safety factor, and fully maintain its warranty and value.

    5. Investigate the credentials of your shop of choice. Any reputable shop will be proud to give you a tour. Check their certifications, written warranty, general cleanliness, organization and collection of notes from satisfied customers. Though patronizing a shop displaying certifications from automotive repair standards-setting, training, and testing organizations – among them Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) – doesn’t necessarily guarantee a perfect experience, generally these shops are above average.

Computerized Vehicle Diagnostics

  • It’s not just a guessing game.

    Here is the bottom line when it comes to state-of-the-art computer diagnostics: a computer is only as good as the technician who operates it. Today’s “check engine” light might indicate many, many types of problems and issues, from the simple to the serious.

    Today’s vehicle has numerous on-board computers. While you’re cruising down the road in your high-tech driving machine, you may not be aware of the 20 to 40 on-board computers that are all making thousands of decisions per second so you can experience some of the finest, ultimate driving conditions possible.

    It takes technology to accurately pinpoint diagnose, repair and service all of the latest technological advances prevalent on today’s high-tech engineered automobiles. Combined with our experienced ASE Certified Technicians, you will receive an expert diagnostic analysis on your vehicle, which will save you time and money.

    Our commitment to our valued customers is to provide the best level of service and repairs that are possible today. Without this kind of commitment to obtain all the current technology to diagnose high-tech vehicles, it is just a guessing game. We believe that a guess is not what you want.

Professional Welding Services

  • Auto body and frame damage often requires the use of specialized welding systems. At Cookeville Collision Center, we utilize several different types of welding systems to perform our custom welding repairs. For example, we have a Pro Spot i4 resistance welder and M.I.G Welders in our facility that allow us to do repairs quickly, efficiently and mimic factory construction methods. We also offer welding services for other projects that may require a professional touch.

  • We have nearly 20 vehicles available for rent to you our valued customers and to your out-of-town guests. All of our rental vehicles are 4-door models with automatic transmissions. We have sedans, suv’s, van’s and a pickup. Each are affordably priced depending on your needs.
