Body Shop Long Beach
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.
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.
At Maaco of Long Beach, 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.
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.
Removal vs. Mask
Maaco of Long Beach's commitment to providing you with a perfect repair job means we won't let dust, lint or dirt ruin your new paint job. To complete our spot painting process, we perform our standard finishing work. This includes sanding, buffing and polishing way these small imperfections.
This begins with wet sanding, spread evenly over the area and then smoothed out. We'll then carefully buff the area with a liquid compound. The final step is polishing, which is critical in restoring the shine to your paint and clear coat.
Our finishing process will truly complete the spot painting process and provide you with a flawless end product.
