Collision Repair Process
Patterson Auto Body strives to make the the process of your collision repair experience as easy as we can. Listed below are the required steps that make the collision repair process possible. Please understand when using an insurance company to pay for your repair, any necessary additional parts or labor must be inspected and pre-approved by them before continuing with your repair. We are in daily contact with your insurance company about these situations; however, this inspection process could cause delays from a few hours to several days, potentially extending the time of repair by this amount of time.
For your convenience this form can be received by fax, online, e-mail attachment or in person at our office. This allows Patterson Auto Body to begin the collision repair process by authorizing us to tow your vehicle to our shop, estimate the damage, and the perform a partial disassembly to uncover any hidden damage.
At this time an Authorization to Repair form needs to be signed. The estimate price will be an ESTIMATED total price that does not take into consideration any additional hidden damage or missed parts and labor uncovered during the disassembly process. This amount could differ from the amount of our current written estimate. To authorize your insurance company to send any additional payment directly to Patterson Auto Body, a Direction of Payment form must be signed. These forms allow us to legally represent the vehicle owner, and use our experience to negotiate with your insurance company to receive the corect settlement to repair your vehicle.
This one step avoids many miscommunications that are typical with collision repair. We also inspect the complete exterior of your vehicle pointing out any other non-requests. However if not possible, you can drop your vehicle off with our convenience store attendant 5AM to 10PM daily, or use our night drop box located to the left of the office door.
You or your insurance company will be immediately notified to review any additional costs.
Additional parts orders will be expedited in an attempt to meet the delivery date. If extensive additional damage is discovered or part issues that will extend repair time, you will be notified of an updated delivery date at this time.
Your vehicle is then vacuumed and washed, and a final inspection is performed by one of our supervisors.
b) Money Order
c) Insurance Check (properly endorsed)

We use an Accudraft Down Draft paint booth to refinish vehicles which allows Patterson Auto Body to reproduce the original finish of your vehicle. Our spray booth introduces completely filtered air from above the vehicle and exhausts the spray mist and fumes below. This process minimizes any dust particles from the air, which cause imperfections in the paint surface. After the painting process is completed, the spray booth goes into a bake mode. This process cures the paint film, producing a factory like finish in both appearance and durability.
We perform all of our auto glass replacement in house to assure the quality of the installation with approved materials that meet National Vehicle Safety Standards We use PPG Auto Glass - a nationwide supplier of auto glass for replacement glass that meets or exceeds the original manufacture's specifications.
