CBS Auto Body Shop provides free estimates, and uses the CCC Computerized Estimating Program to prepare initial and final estimates that are as accurate and complete as possible. The CCC information systems estimate equipment helps reduce the time associated with the traditional insurance claim settlement and cuts the repair process in half through more accurate information and improved efficiency. This means you receive more accurate information about your repair costs, and your vehicle returns to you twice as fast! The capabilities of the CCC system also enable us to operate our business more efficiently, allowing us to deliver the best possible repairs at the lowest possible price.
Finally, as a Direct Repair Facility, we handle insurance paperwork for you, and can often begin work upon initial approval by your insurance company. That way you do not have to wait several days for an adjustor to examine your vehicle.
Many times a preliminary estimate and a “final estimate” (after repairs have been completed) are quite different. Due to the nature of modern automobiles, a collision estimate “evolves” through the process of repair. This is especially true for front and rear impacts, where hidden damage often cannot be detected until repairs have begun.
After the intial estimate, CBS Auto Body Shop will tear down your vehicle at impact point, create a supplemental estimates when we are able to assess the hidden damage, and review the repair estimate with you and your insurance adjuster. This is the quickest, most efficient way to repair your vehicle and get you back on the road!
