The best answer to this question is, it depends. Your car may be in the
shop for a few days or up to a few weeks depending on the type of car
you drive, the extent of the collision damage, and of course the quality
and skill of the collision repair technicians working on your vehicle.
However, when you visit an insurance-approved
collision center in Chicago you can be certain that you’ll be kept informed throughout the entire
process. Here’s a quick look at different points in the process
and how long it may take for you to receive your car.
Initial Damage Estimate
After you agree to the initial
damage estimate and the collision repair shop receives insurance approval, the necessary
parts are ordered electronically and typically delivered within one or
two business days. After the parts are received you will be provided a
tentative completion date.
Vehicle Disassembly and Inspection
Your vehicle is then disassembled and re-inspected for hidden and more
serious damage than was initially discovered during the visual estimate.
A supplemental damage amendment is made to your repair agreement and,
if necessary, additional parts are ordered. You may receive an updated
completion date based on the newly discovered damage and the extra time
needed for parts delivery.
Structural Repairs, Paint, and Re-Assembly
The later stages of the collision repair process are typically the most
time consuming, and may vary from a few days to a few weeks. You should
expect to be updated following the completion of major structural and
auto body repairs, after which point the only steps left are painting,
re-assembly, and detailing.
