Collision Related Mechanical & Electrical Repair
With the complexity of all modern vehicles most auto collisions require mechanical and electrical repairs as part of the complete repair. As an industry leader in recognizing the complexity of these mechanical and electrical repairs Collision employs a licensed mechanical team as key members of the overall repair team.
This mechanical team, working with current technology equipment is able to perform services including electronic diagnosis, component replacement, suspension repairs, air conditioning, tire and wheel work and wheel alignment. This allows us to maintain control of the entire repair process with very minimal sublet involved. There is both efficiency and security added to the process if the vehicle does not have to leave our facility. Very few other collision repair facilities can offer such a wide range of in-house services.
Our Approach to Electronic Repairs
It is unrealistic to expect the well trained and experienced structural technician to also diagnose and then correct electronic systems issues. It is also inefficient to leave all systems issues until the end of the repair and then send the car to the dealer or a sublet mechanical shop to resolve these as the last step in the process.
Our mechanics have up to date training and equipment for most diagnostics, systems issues and code resets. With some makes there are circumstances where we do have to send the car to the dealer for system resets and corrections, but this process is much more efficient if we have done the initial work and narrowed down the possible problems.
Importantly much of this electronic diagnosis can be done at the disassembly stage, or at another point before the work is completed. If the diagnosis and analysis show that parts are needed, these can be authorized and ordered as the car moves through other stages of repair.
