Post Repair Inspections

Trained technicians dismantle the area of your vehicle that was impacted during the collision and perform an in depth inspection and technical review of the repairs to verify your vehicle was fixed correctly to the vehicle manufacturer standards.

83% of inspections we complete uncover remaining damage. We provide a report documenting all damages discovered. The report is then provided to the insurance company that “guaranteed” the initial repair. The outcome: your vehicle repaired properly to manufacturer specifications or, if the damages are severe, declared a total loss. Either way, you and your family get to drive away in a safe vehicle with peace of mind.

Past Inspection Results

Chrissy L, 2017 CR-V (Recent Case)

Chrissy took her vehicle to Geico’s contracted “approved” body shop because GEICO said they guarantee the work.  After the repair, she came to Collision Consulting seeking a Diminished Value Appraisal. She did not suspect anything was wrong with her vehicle at the time.

·       Preliminary Inspection in the parking lot found extremely obvious structural damage.  This damage had to have been seen by the technician who repaired the vehicle.

·       A structural diagnostic/measurement was performed comparing factory specifications to this vehicle. GEICO’s shop left this vehicle with a bent frame.

·       The CRV would likely not perform as Honda engineers designed if it were involved in another collision.

After presenting GEICO with our report of findings and corrective estimate to replace the left front frame rail, GEICO totaled the CR-V.  Christine received the full market value for her vehicle and expenses for our services.
