There are many reasons why estimates can be so different from shop to shop. Many times, lower estimates do not include all of the damage to the vehicle. Low estimates are often written to use aftermarket or used parts on your vehicle. Using factory OEM parts will add cost to the estimate, but will result in a higher quality repair.
Paint quality can also make a huge difference in the price on your estimate. Low quality paint may cost less, but it cracks, peels and fades. At Martins Collision, our paint exceeds the quality of factory grade paint and has a life time guarantee against peeling, fading, and cracking.
