How Long Does it Take for Collision Repair?

Any collision can be stressful, but knowing what to do after a car accident can help you manage the situation. Along with making sure that no one is seriously injured, calling the police, and exchanging information with the other driver(s) involved, you’ll want to make sure to contact your insurance company and file a claim. Your insurance company will have an adjuster inspect your vehicle to determine repair costs. Once the vehicle has been inspected, you’ll receive an estimate on the cost of repairs and the amount that your insurance company will cover. How long does collision repair take? It depends on the following:

  • How long it takes your car insurance provider to process and approve your claim 
  • The extent of the damage done to your vehicle
  • How busy your auto body shop is
  • If you drive an import, a sports car, or another type of specialty vehicle, it may take longer for an collision repair shop to receive the replacement parts needed to make the repairs
