  • Damage to safety systems, such as airbags, seat belts, and sensors
  • Wheel alignment issues

What Is the Process for Collision Repair?

The exact steps involved in auto collision repair depend on the nature of the damage and how extensive it is. Joe Hudson’s Collision Center has developed a proven process for repairing cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and other vehicles that have sustained minor to major collision damage.

Key components of our collision repair process include:

1. Assessment & Estimate

Our technicians perform a thorough inspection, accounting for both visible damage and hidden damage that may require further investigation. We also prepare a complete and accurate estimate using the industry’s premier repair estimating software.

2. Insurance Claim Assistance

Filing an insurance claim is one of the most important aspects of getting your vehicle’s repairs underway. Our knowledgeable team members can help you navigate the claim filing process, as well as assist you with rental vehicle arrangements.

3. Disassembly

Once the insurance claim or estimate is approved, the damaged parts of the vehicle are removed to assess the extent of underlying damage. This may involve removing exterior body panels, interior components, and other parts to identify all related damage.

4. Structural Repair

If the frame or unibody is damaged, we perform the necessary repairs to restore the vehicle’s factory dimensions and structural integrity. This may involve using specialized equipment such as a measuring system and frame straightening machine to accurately realign the vehicle’s structure.

5. Body Repair

Body repair involves repairing or replacing damaged body panels, bumpers, fenders, and other exterior components. Our technicians specialize in paintless dent repair, which in some cases allows us to remove minor dents and dings without the need for traditional bodywork and painting.

6. Painting

After the body repairs are complete, we prepare your vehicle for painting using high-quality automotive paint products. Our advanced paint matching technology ensures that the new paint matches the color of your specific vehicle.

7. Reassembly

Once the paint process is complete, the vehicle is reassembled. This includes reinstalling exterior body panels, trim pieces, lamps, and other components. We also complete any remaining required operations, such as replacing the windshield, performing the wheel alignment, calibrating ADAS, etc.

8. Quality Control & Final Inspection

JHCC puts each vehicle through a rigorous quality control inspection to ensure that all repairs have been completed to an industry-leading standard. Test drives may be performed to verify that the systems are functioning correctly and there are no issues with handling or performance.

9. Detailing

The vehicle is thoroughly cleaned inside and out to remove any dust, debris, or fingerprints accumulated during the repair process. Interior detailing may also be performed to restore the vehicle’s interior to a clean and like-new condition.

10. Delivery

Once the repair process is complete and the vehicle passes final inspection, it is ready to be returned to you. Your local JHCC location will coordinate with you to arrange for pickup or delivery of your vehicle. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the repairs we performed or any aspect of the overall process.

Technicians at Joe Hudson’s Collision Center handle each of these tasks with the utmost care. You will receive a written warranty guaranteeing the work we’ve done.
