Why bring my Chevy to the Chapman Chevrolet Body Shop?

Good question. Your first contact after an accident is often with you insurance company. While your insurance company will want to get your Chevrolet car or truck back on the road quickly, they also will want to get those repairs done as inexpensively as possible since they are paying the bill. Many insurance companies will have a preferred provider list (similar to a HMO doctor list). These are body shops that may have agreed to work for a lesser hourly rate and that try to reduce repair cost by using aftermarket parts. This is why it is important to choose an auto body shop like Chapman Chevrolet that has the interest of the customer, not the insurance company in mind. That’s not to say that we won’t work with your insurance company, we’re just saying we won’t cut corners.

Why Are Body Shop Estimates Different?

Most of the difference in repair estimates doesn’t come from labor rates, but from parts used. Just because a fender or bumper fits properly doesn’t make it a good fit for your car or truck. The quality of the materials used in making that part affects the final price. For example, it is easy to produce a replacement Chevy fender that is less expensive than an OEM fender, but if it is made of a lesser quality steel to reduce price, it may not perform the same in a future accident and it can devalue your vehicle. Additionally, using non-approved parts after an accident may void your Chevrolet warranty. At Chapman Chevrolet we prefer to use genuine OEM Chevy parts for safety and retained value.

Chapman Chevrolet Body Shop Technicians

Today’s Chevy cars and trucks employ such high tech components as multiple air bags, traction control systems, high pressure fuel systems and anti-lock brake systems. A technician that is familiar with the make and model of your vehicle, and has been factory trained in how to repair and install these systems will help ensure the safest repair possible. For example, if your accident resulted in the deployment of the airbags, not only will the airbags need to be properly replaced but the crash sensors will need to be tested. Additionally, the deployment computer will need to be tested and calibrated to accurately assess sensor input if there should be another collision. The airbag computer must decide whether or not to deploy the airbags based on multiple data input sources, the timing of which must be precise for the airbags to perform properly and safely.
