Pre-accident condition is a benchmark used by insurance companies to define the condition that auto body repair needs to achieve in order to return a vehicle to its original state before the collision occurred. This takes into account damage previous to the accident, depreciation from ordinary usage, mileage, and environmental elements, such as sun exposure or corrosion.
There are occurences in which collision damage is not visually apparent yet still causes impact, such as damage to a car's suspension or alignment. These factors can be difficult to evaluate without working on a vehicle. A collision specialist may determine that more extensive damage has occurred to the vehicle and it no longer falls within the manufacturer specifications affecting its structural integrity, safety, and/or drive performance. In these occurences, we work directly with your insurance company and provide our assessment and findings in order to restore the vehicle back to optimum condition.
When a car or truck is in an accident, it’s quite common to think it will never be the same.
A vehicle can be returned to pre-accident condition, and often to a higher standard with the right workmanship and training. The quality of an auto body repair is what determines how effective an outcome will be. Quality workmanship depends on extensive knowledge of manufacturer specifications, technologies implemented in integrated, computerized control systems, such as steering and braking, structural design and stress, and master skill.
Automotive design and manufacturing is complex, and demanding of accuracy and precision. The measure of distortion in a vehicle after a collision can be as little as three millimeters (the thickness of three dimes) and may affect a car’s performance and wear. Using electronic sensors, ultrasonic/amplified sound, and mechanical diagnostic tools, we can accurately evaluate damage and contributing problems with a high degree of accuracy to essentially restore or re-build the car within the tolerance of a dime.
