Additional repairs are those that are beyond the realm of standard maintenance. If your car is experiencing odd behavior or making strange noises, you’ll likely need to get it into a shop as soon as possible for inspection. Many common cases of additional repairs include repairing hub cabs that have been overly exposed, exhaust systems that aren’t filtering correctly, or even interior radio systems that fail to connect. All of these constitute additional repairs and can easily be addressed with a simple assessment.
Preventative maintenance is performed to keep your car from succumbing to damages before they actually happen. While you can easily obtain regular car maintenance when it’s due, preventative maintenance includes having regular checks on your car’s interiors, not just its maintenance checklist, and having factory warranties on special parts that could easily become damaged or difficult to replace, such as hubcaps, car logos and emblems, as well as actual parts native to the car itself.
Engine repairs can also be classified as additional car repairs, mainly because of the complexity in repairing an engine system altogether. When preparing for an engine repair or replacement, it’s not as easy as taking out the old one and putting in a new one. Often times the engine replacement may end up costing more than the car is actually worth and could result in the client opting to not replace the engine at all. If the engine is worth replacing, the costs will likely spike to a few thousand dollars before the car is safe and drivable again. Engine replacements must be tested in the car and fitted to the car type. Engines that are too big or too small for the existing car will likely cause problems in the future or may not even operate at all. Therefore, it is important to have a professional technician performing the replacement and repairs at all times.
Collision repairs are those that aim to repair the damages caused by an abrupt collision. This can include tire repairs, taillight repairs, or even internal, functional repairs. If your car requires additional repairs as the result of a collision, we’ll make a note of it in order for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Often times, some of the repairs that are needed after a collision are uncommon so the insurance company will need adequate documentation stating the need for such repairs.
If your car is still under warranty, this means that your car company will willingly pay for any damages covered under the provisions of the warranty. Should this be the case, we honor warranties with documentation. We’ll often call the car company to verify that the repairs we are about to perform are covered under their factory warranty before proceeding, so they can give us further details about which parts and tools to use. We encourage our clients to always use their warranty until it expires, as it could save you several hundred dollars along the way. Find out much more details about our service.
