What is Auto Body Repair?
An Auto Body Shop will take a damaged vehicle back to pre-damaged condition. Structural damage is another component of auto body repair, and because it can’t be seen, like exterior damage can be, it is often diagnosed after the initial estimate. The structure of the car holds the exterior components of the car in place. There are instances when the engine is also part of the repair process. If the car requires engine work, we remove the engine. At Barbosa’s Kustom Kolor we usually don’t do that much engine work but we certainly can!
3 Things to look for in AN AUTO BODY SHOP?
Honesty. You want to be confident that you are getting what you paid for. If you work with an auto body repair shop that is not honest, you won’t see the result of dishonest work until time has passed and it will be too late to do anything about the shoddy repairs.
Skilled workmanship. The repair work has to be done right. The repairs need to hold up down the road. Will the care drive correctly? Will the tires wear differently now that the car was repaired? These are issues that a customer isn’t thinking about when they choose an auto body repair shop. But these are issues that may be a factor down the road if the work is not done skillfully.
Trust. Choose a body shop that has an excellent reputation in the community. Pick a shop that stands behind their work. Pick a shop that does what it needs to do to make it right. We recommend doing your homework as a consumer. Investigate the company with better business bureau. Look at reviews. A bad review is not necessarily a red flag, and you may want to investigate how did they handle the situation.
HOW LONG DO REPAIRS TAKE?
The length of time our shop would take to repair your car depends on the size of the repair. A large repair can take up to several weeks. Smaller repairs take only a day or two. Roughly eighty percent of the work that we do is insurance based claims. The other 20% is our customers with scratch and dent, paintless dent repair and hail damage repair needs.

We are a complete auto body shop
When a customer comes into the shop with a car that needs to be fixed, the first thing we do is take the time to educate them about the car. Our goal is to keep our customers informed throughout the entire auto body repair process. That includes updating them I the event that issues arise at any step of the process. Most of the changes typically occur once we take the damaged parts from the car.
We write our estimate for customers and insurance companies based on what we can see upon visual inspection. The review process does not entail removing parts of the cars’ body to fully diagnose the extent of the repair. As we take the damaged exterior apart, there are times when we then see that an issue would best serve the integrity of the car if approached in another way.
