The best estimates are in person and might require the car to be taken apart to see hidden damage and braces.

 Most of the time estimates from insurance adjusters or their recomended shops are purposely written at least 50% of what the actual cost is for a proper repair. As part of being on the insurance referal program they dictate these partner shops to write it low so hopefully the person pockets the money or gets in another accident.

Customers are always welcome to come into the shop for a free hand written guestimate. For a small fee to cover our time we are happy to do a thorough computer estimate using the best procedures, materials, new OEM parts from the dealership and clips. Depending on complexity we start at only $25 for a simple bumper repair or replacement. For something like a side swipe or a front end collision these start at $50. If the customer has us do the repairs our fee will be credited.

Thanks for understanding that with operating costs being so high we found it imperative to start charging for computer estimates as they are very time consuming.
