Class A vs. Elective Repairs

Regardless of cost, we will make sure no sacrifices are made in regards to structure or safety of the repair.
We realize that cost is a big factor when you make vehicle repair decisions. To make sure you get the services you need, Maaco located at 9808 Palm River Rd., offers three price levels for replacement parts. The least expensive option is Recycled parts. These components come from vehicles that are no longer driveable but are still safe and functioning.
The next level is Aftermarket parts. These parts are brand new, but may not necessarily come from your vehicle's manufacturer. The best and most costly option id OEM. These parts are more expensive but come from the original manufacturer of your vehicle and provide the best match. If you do need a replacement part, consider these three options.
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
Dust. Lint. Dirt. At Maaco of Tampa, 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 onto 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.
