Step 1: Free Estimate
Before any work is done we will assess the damage on your vehicle and give you and/or your insurance company a complete and written estimate of work. This will include transparent pricing and time to complete.
Step 2: Vehicle Prep
All damaged parts will be taken off, as well as the damaged layers of paint. Sometimes during this step we will find damage that wasn’t seen during step one, if that is the case you will be alerted.
Step 3: Body Work
All structural damage will be repaired. Dents, tears and scratches will be mended. All metal will be primed, sealed and protected with the repair area being cleaned, sanded and ready for paint.
Step 4: Paint
First, the area will be pressure washed and chemically treated. Then, the area will be taped off and paints mixed. Once all the prep work is complete it will be painted.

Accident? Insurance Claim?
We are on Direct Repair Programs (DRP) with several major insurance companies. Direct repair programs are much like preferred providers in health insurance. This means McDaniel's will handle your claim direct with the insurance company, saving you the time of running all over town getting estimates. Be sure and ask the insurance company if they have a Direct Repair Program and if we are on their list. If a company has a program that we are not a part of, you are in no way obligated to use their shop just because they offer. You can always have your vehicle repaired at the shop of your choice… Read More
