Learn About the Process

INITIATION

The process begins when you file a claim with your insurance company.

DISASSEMBLY OF VEHICLE

After you drop off at Rocket Auto’s Collision Center it will be scheduled the same day for disassembly. When disassembling the vehicle, we first look for additional uncovered damage. This process insures a compete estimate is done and no hidden damage will be found later in the process that will delay vehicle completion.

INSURANCE APPRAISAL

After you we disassemble your vehicle and write up a full repair estimate, we promptly schedule an appointment with your insurance company to appraise the vehicle. Upon accepting liability for the repairs and an agreed upon cost of damages, work begins.

ORDERING AND DELIVERY OF PARTS

While most parts are available for delivery within a few days, some parts may take longer. Work begins when all parts arrive so the vehicle may be reassembled properly.

STRUCTURAL AND MECHANICAL REPAIRS

This is the point at which we begin to restore your vehicle. We mount your vehicle on a frame machine and our metal technicians go to work. Also, we will inform you with an updated status of your vehicle.

PRIMING AND PAINT PREPPING

By priming, sealing, protecting against corrosion, and chemically treating the body panels, we take the utmost care in preparing your vehicle for painting.

PAINTING AND BUFFING

Our multi-step painting process involves a preliminary taping, bagging and masking, followed by painting, refinishing and buffing. While this does take time, it is necessary so our paint technicians can ensure your finish looks as close as possible to the original paint job.

TRIM-OUT AND FINAL REPAIRS

The last step. All trim and molding is installed, then we begin any necessary mechanical repairs, including suspension, alignment and air conditioning work.

WASH AND INSPECT

All repairs are complete. However, we want to make sure your vehicle is clean, inside and out. After washing your vehicle, we inspect your car to ensure that all repairs are up to standard. Your vehicle is now ready to be delivered.
