How Long Does It Take To Repair My Vehicle After A Car Accident?

Collisions in and around Pasadena happen every day, and getting into an accident yourself is scary and stressful because you’re now without a vehicle with no idea what to do without a car you need to arrange a way to get to work, pick up the kids, get your groceries, and rearrange your life thing can be very frustrating!

As much as we would love to give you an exact number of days for your repairs, we want to be honest with you; there is no exact formula to figure it out.

At Carstar Douglas auto Body a good estimate on average situations may give you a hand at planning your vehicle repair and might help relieve some of the questions and that stress that comes after a car accident 

How Long Do These Car Repairs Take?

1-Minor Auto Collision Repair

Small scratches and fender benders usually take the least amount of time to complete. Depending on the season and severity, it could take just a few days to complete. Minor damage means the auto repair shop will be able to get your car fixed quickly because it is less dependent on parts, paint, and other factors that tend to delay repairs.

2-Major Auto Collision Repair

If your car has significant damage, the repair process will take longer. Your mechanic may need to inspect and provide an estimate for what it will take to fix your car before your insurance allows the repair work to begin.
Although it is not uncommon for the body shop to find damage that is more extensive once they start work on your car, this updated repair estimate should be brought to your insurance and included on your claim. If the auto body shop gives you a repair estimate of a few weeks to a few months based on the damage to your car, this is normal.

3-Auto Windshield Replacement

Your auto body shop will not install a windshield on a vehicle that has been compromised. You may need to get your car repaired before any installation can be done. Your windshield repair will typically take less than a day to complete, but it may need to the adhesive to set before being driven on the road.
If you are getting your windshield replaced at Carstar Douglas Auto Body, we may need to order the right windshield for your particular car before completing the repair

4- Scrap, Scratch or Car Paint

If you have a standard color model, you do not need to worry about it, at Carstar Douglas Auto Body we get your car’s paint fixed in just a few days. If you have a custom color, matching paint colors and getting the correct one will take much longer, but the good thing is that you will not have to leave your car in our shop for days or weeks, it could be done in a day or two!
