  • “Krista in the collision center took great care of me and got my vehicle in and out as fast as possible and they did a great job on my car.”

    SATISFIED CUSTOMER
  • “My truck was broken into and vandalized. I took my truck directly to Jim Burke’s body shop before even speaking to my insurance because I knew they’d be able to get the job done quick and efficiently. Very happy with the results. Krista kept me in the know during the entire process. It’s pretty much impossible to even tell anything ever happened. Amazing work!!!”

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • Do I have to use Aftermarket or used parts?

    Depending on your insurance policy you may be able to request that only OEM parts are used to repair your vehicle. Contact your insurance provider to find out. You can also always pay the additional cost to install OEM parts on your vehicle if you insurance provider refuses. Our staff will work with you to get you the best price on the best parts manufactured by the OEM.

  • Can I use any repair facility I choose?

    Many insurance companies will direct you to specific shops. These direct repair facilities work directly with the insurance company and often have automated payment processes. If you are directed to one of these shops you have the right to use any shop you choose.

  • What is a supplement?

    Supplemental damage is additional repairs or broken parts that where not found during when the insurance adjuster wrote the initial claim.

  • How long will my vehicle be in the shop?

    Typically it takes three days to order and receive the parts required to repair the vehicle. The average shop can complete 3.5 to 5.0 hrs of body work per day. Therefore a repair with parts and 20 hrs of labor will be in the shop for at least 7 days. That is three days waiting for parts and 4 days of actual repair time.
