Welcome to Our Collision Department
My name is Todd Goolden, Collision Center Manager here at Frenchie's Ford and Frenchie's Chevrolet. I would like to welcome you to our web page.
We carry all the latest state of the art equipment needed to complete your repairs. We custom mix our top quality Dupont paint to match your vehicle's exact color. Then we bake it on your vehicle in our Down Draft Bake Booth. This allows us to work on your vehicle 15 minutes after we paint it, which helps to minimize the delay of the repair process.
We have a Chief computerized laser guided frame straightening machine, which will realign your vehicle back to factory specs. If your vehicle does need a new frame, we employ numerous expert mechanical technicians to make the transfer accurately. Our staff consists of six highly trained technicians ready to serve your needs.
What to do after your accident?
When you are involved in an accident you reserve the right to take your vehicle to the repair facility of your choice. When you file a claim with your insurance company they may want you to go and get an estimate of the damage. The repair process begins with a preliminary estimate of the damage done to your vehicle. We take a look at your vehicle and assess what the visual damage is. Then we gather all the information needed to complete the estimate and log everything into the computer, this will give us a guideline of what the initial damage are. After this estimate your insurance company may send out their own adjuster to do a final estimate.
After the preliminary estimate is written and before any work is started on your vehicle we need you to sign a work authorization form. This form allows us to do work on your vehicle which includes; driving the vehicle around the shop for diagnostics, road testing, and replacing parts.We back our work with a 1 year or 12,000 mile warranty on all original GM equipment & parts and a three year warranty on our Dupont paint.
Transportation / Drop Off Service
If you need to drop your vehicle off for repair after we have closed or before we open there is a drop box to the left of our door for your convenience. We also know that vehicle repair is an inconvenience. We offer rental vehicles for $20 a day. If you have rental coverage on your insurance policy our rental department will take care of all the necessary paperwork involved.
Let our skilled team restore your vehicle back to manufacturer-specified standards!
