Collision Repair in Fredericksburg, VA
Class A vs. Elective Repairs
We can help you handle all of the details if you need to file an insurance claim for your repair work. We will coordinate all of the repairs and we work with every major insurance company. We will also provide you with a detailed repair plan for your unique vehicle.
If you are paying for repair work yourself, we fully appreciate that cost is a big factor. We will review your initial repair plan and offer some options that will help cut down on cost. We will do this while also ensuring no sacrifice is made to the quality of the repairs.
At Maaco of Fredericksburg, 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
Dust. Lint. Dirt. At Maaco of Fredericksburg, 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.
