Collision Repair Process
COLLISION REPAIR PROCESS
From beginning to end, every time!
When you enter a Gosch Collision Center, you will be greeted and presented with a brief form to fill out for an estimate.
An experienced Collision Consultant will prepare your estimate and answer any of your insurance or repair concerns.
The Collision Consultant will go over the estimate with you and obtain insurance authorization (when applicable) while you wait. With estimate in hand, you'll also receive an actual appointment date, telling you exactly when your vehicle can be admitted for repairs. The Collision Consultant will keep you updated by phone, text or e-mail during the repair process.
Because of our relationship with various rental agencies, your rental can be conveniently handled at the time of your appointment.
