Uh, Oh! Better Get Maaco

Class A VS. Elective Repairs

Class A

If your repair work involves filing an insurance claim, we'll help you handle all of the details. We work with every major insurance company, coordinating the complete repair. We even provide you with a detailed repair plan specific to your vehicle.

Elective

In those instances when you are paying for the repairs yourself, we are conscious that cost is a big factor. Our experts review your initial repair plan and recommend options that will save you money in the long run, all the while ensuring no sacrifice is made with regards to structure or safety of the repair.

Uh, Oh! Better Get Maaco Process

The first stage in the auto body repair process is to bring your car in for an assessment. We will assess the damaged area; recommending either repair or replacement of damaged parts and components, depending on what is the most cost effective for you. We will also repair areas where it is more cost effective to retain the original equipment; damage such as dents, dings, scratches and plastic and fiber glass repair.

Removing/Replacing Parts

At Maaco we know that you are conscious of the cost. Therefore we offer three price levels when it comes to replacement parts. OEM parts are the highest in cost, but come from the original manufacturer of your vehicle, meaning they ultimately provide the best match for your vehicle. A more cost effective option is Aftermarket. While new, these parts might not necessarily come from your vehicle's manufacturer. Recycled parts are the most cost-efficient. They come from vehicles no longer considered 'road-ready' but still adhere to safety and function standards. So if parts replacement is necessary, three options provide flexibility to help you proceed with confidence.

Spot Painting

Turning the car you drive into the car you love is sometimes as simple as a little touch up. So when your car needs only one or two panels painted, spot painting can often be the best and most cost effective way to go.

We'll target the areas needing repair and make sure adjacent panels are chemically cleaned and block sanded to give a precise and flawless surface for painting. We then use a multiple masking process to ensure an accurate "blending" of the new and old car paint so that the transformation is flawless.

Finishing

Dust. Lint. Dirt. At Maaco, our commitment to perfection in your repair job means we never let such imperfections stand in the way. As part of the spot-painting process to your repair job comes our standard finishing work. It is our quality procedure that helps sand, buff and polish away those little imperfections.

It starts with wet sanding, spread evenly over the area and then smoothed out. Next we carefully buff the area using a liquid compound. Then it's on to the polishing, a critical step in restoring that shine to your paint and clear coat and getting that damaged area looking good as new.

It's with our Finishing process that your spot-painting process is truly finished... and perfect.
