POST REPAIR INSPECTION (PRI)If your repair is not becoming to you... You should be coming to us.
What is it?
Among its many offerings, Auto Damage Experts performs inspections of vehicles which have sustained damage and undergone corrective repairs.
Unfortunately, and all too often, not all repairs do properly and/or thoroughly restore a damaged vehicle to its former “pre-loss condition” in safety, function, performance or appearance or to the best of human ability. When this occurs, the damaged and repaired vehicle not only loses additional and avoidable economic damages (Diminished Value) it may leave the occupants and others on the roadway in an unsafe and potentially dangerous position.
Poorly performed repairs and overlooked and remaining damages may cause issues as simple as uneven wear on tires to dangerous handling issues and excessive wear-and-tear on suspension and other mechanical related components. Poorly diagnosed and under-repaired vehicles may cause for remaining and hidden structural damages which, in a post repair collision/impact, may prevent the vehicle from reacting as originally engineered and intended by the manufacturer whereas energy absorbing panels fail to collapse and/or direct impact energies as designed. These failures may cause problems with deployment of air bags and restraint systems and be cause for significant injuries, or worse, to the driver and their passengers.
We have people that want to make a quick buck and they don’t have the best interest of the consumer in mind,” says Kathleen Hamilton of California’s Bureau of Auto Repair. According to the Bureau, an astounding 40 percent of body-shop work is fraudulent.Excerpt from ABC News: “A Bang-Up Job Body Shop Scams May Compromise Your Car’s Safety”
Industry statistics have purported that over sixty percent (60%) of vehicles that were repaired have been found to have inadequate repairs that could affect the value, operation and/or safety of the vehicle and its occupants. Additionally, fraud plays a significant role in the quality and thoroughness of repairs. Unfortunately there are those that will forfeit the wellness of the consumer for personal and/or corporate greed.
Would it be wise to assume that the repair facility and/or the insurance company beat the odds on your vehicle’s repair? Do not gamble with the safety of you and your family, know if your vehicle has remaining damage and/or was properly and thoroughly repaired.
