You noticed the tailgating driver behind you on your way to pick the kids up from school. Seconds later, you’re rear ended at a stop light when the tailgater fails to slow down fast enough. Thankfully, everyone is okay, but your rear bumper is dented and scratched, the taillight is broken, and the entire assembly is nearly falling off.
Fortunately, a vehicle damaged in a traffic accident that hasn’t been totaled out by your insurance company can be repaired to look and drive like new with the help of a CRT (Collision Repair Technician). A CRT can examine your car, assess the damage and repair costs, and establish a plan to bring your car back to factory specifications and safety standards.
Our CRT’s are trained I-CAR Gold Class experts that ensure your vehicle is repaired safely, thoroughly, and cost-effectively, no matter how complex or diverse the vehicle design. Our services include repairing damage to your car’s body, frame straightening, repairing dents, replacing parts, and paint matching and spraying.
Not only is your car’s frame the main support that holds each component in place and makes your car drive straight, it’s also one of your vehicle’s most important safety features. In an accident, the frame is prone to damage, but that’s not a design flaw. The frame is made with crumple zones, areas that absorb the force of an impact and protect passengers from the worst of a collision!
After a collision, a car’s frame should be investigated to determine if it’s the shape it should be. Although you can sometimes drive a car with a bent or crumpled frame, its compromised structure means you’re not as safe if another collision were to happen. That’s why when frame damage is present, we’ll scrutinize and measure every inch and recommend next steps based on what we find.
If minimal damage is present, a frame can sometimes be straightened out by pulling the frame into its original shape using laser precision. If only a section is compromised, it might be eligible for removal, replacement, and welding of new pieces. And sometimes a frame can’t be repaired at all because the car has been totaled and there is no way to return the frame to manufacturer’s specifications and safety standards.
Full Paint Service
After your car’s collision damage has been repaired, it’ll need an external makeover. Any crumpled panels that were replaced must be skillfully painted to ensure both aesthetic and practical quality, as your car’s paint job not only makes it look great, but also protects the car from daily wear and tear and rust.
We proudly use only high-quality, environmentally friendly PPG automotive paints, and are excited to share that Midtown is PPG Certified Sprayable, which means our team can achieve expert paint and finish matching, and perform consistent paint spraying free of paint runs, specks, or dust.
Paintless Dent Repair
We’ve all been there. You come out of the grocery store to find a scuff on your driver’s side door, and you just know that some excited kid (or an irresponsible adult!) was less than careful when they opened the door of the car next to yours. Dents, door dings, and scratches are an experience just about all of us share. Although they don’t necessarily affect your car’s drivability, these blemishes can be frustrating and detract from your car’s resale value.
Luckily, minor to moderate damage caused by hail, door dings, and small dents can be handled with PDR (Paintless Dent Removal). PDR is a quicker, less expensive, and typically longer-term solution compared to traditional methods that smooth dents with body filler and then cover with paint.
The most successful PDR depends on several factors, including the intensity of the impact, how flat or curved the damaged area is, and how or where the metal has been stretched. Our team is happy to look over your car’s damage and offer a free estimate to get it back on the road as good as new!
For Your Convenience
Whether you were just in an accident, or you have a special auto project in mind, we like to offer a few extras to make your experience as smooth and convenient as possible.
Once you call and schedule a free estimate, our team will carefully evaluate the extent of your car’s damage at our shop. The process usually takes about 30 minutes, in which we will use our I-CAR Gold Class certification and experience to thoroughly inspect not only the aesthetic damage, but also any hidden damage that may not be immediately apparent.
We strive to create a tailored, personal experience for each of our customers, and that starts with your estimate. There are several factors that can affect the overall cost of your repair. Because each car, damage type, and situation is unique, we insist on seeing your car in person before providing you with an estimate. Your satisfaction—and safety—is our utmost concern! Once your estimate is complete, we will review it with you, answer your questions, and schedule repairs!
Insurance Claim Assistance
Maybe this is the first time you’ve ever been in an accident and you’re not sure what steps to take. Or perhaps your busy schedule has left you unprepared to manage the paperwork. We can help! We work with all insurance companies and can handle your claim for you once you have filed it with your insurance company.
Shop of Choice
Your insurance company, or the company insuring the other party’s vehicle, may have a collision repair provider that they prefer. You are not obligated to use their suggested shop. This is called Shop of Choice. You may choose to take your vehicle to any repair center and request that the insurance adjuster inspect and estimate your car’s damage there.
We understand it can be a big inconvenience to arrange transportation after you’ve dropped off your car. We are happy to offer our complimentary shuttle service to get you wherever you need to go. ADDITIONAL DETAILS
