YES! The "State of California Department of Insurance" states that an insurance company may NOT require the repairs to be done at a specific body repair shop. Section 2695.8(e) of the "Fair Claims Settlement Practices Regulations".
Today's modern factory finishes incorporate multiple layers of highly specialized paints. "Rainbow Auto Center" has made a major investment in the finest paint system available and constantly upgrades its technology and equipment to ensure that each vehicle's paint matches. We take special pride in our ability to match factory finishes as the final step in the restoration process.
Your advisor can give you an estimated time frame of how long it will take to complete the repairs to your vehicle. Please note that although we make every effort to meet the delivery target dates we propose, it is possible that we identify hidden damage to you vehicle during the repair process. This directly impacts our initial proposed target date due to additional labor time needed and the possibility of additional parts orders. We will also advise you by phone or email with any updates.
You will be notified by phone when your vehicle is ready to be picked up.
We accept cash and major credit cards.
Parts that wear out and need replacement with time and use (i.e., tires, batteries, and suspension parts) are commonly subject to betterment charges when they are replaced during the repair process. These betterment charges are determined by your insurance company and are pro-rated based on actual miles on your vehicle. These charges are payable by you at the time of completion of repairs.
No! A car is a total loss only when the price of repairs exceeds the insurance companies determined value of your vehicle. Nowadays, most cars are built using unibody (frame and body as one) construction. Our highly skilled technicians, with the aid of our state-of the-art laser measuring system, can return your vehicle to its original factory specifications. If it is determined that the frame section is bent beyond repair, that section can simply be replaced.
Yes! "Rainbow Auto Center" offers a written warranty on all workmanship for as long as you own the vehicle. Our "Body" and "Paint" Labor repairs carry a Life-Time warranty. Parts are supported by a factory warranty. Note that parts subjected to common "Wear & Tear" are not supported by a warranty (i.e. Brake Pads, Rotors, Mufflers, Tires, Batteries etc.)
Absolutely! We prefer to order your vehicle's parts at the time that we write the estimate and schedule your vehicle for drop-off a couple of days later. This enables us to provide quicker turnaround time. Please discuss the arrangements with our service advisor at the time you schedule your vehicle drop-off.
