The Different Types of Auto Body Repairs and When to Use Them

People can use different types of auto body repairs to restore their vehicles’ structural integrity and safety. Depending on the damage’s extent, the repair process will vary in complexity and cost. RG3 Collision offers various auto body repairs to cater to our customers’ varying needs. 

We aim to exceed every customer’s requirement when providing our repairs. Therefore, we have technicians with extensive training and hands-on experience. Also, we have invested in the latest technology to ensure our technicians can quickly diagnose and fix auto body damage. 

Here are different auto body repairs and when to use them upon bringing your vehicle to our facility. 

Minor Auto Body Repairs

A minor auto body repair may include replacing a single part or small area that has sustained damage, such as a fender or bumper cover. Minor repairs are typically quick and relatively inexpensive compared to more extensive repairs.

Our technicians recommend minor auto body repairs when the damage is limited to a single area, and there are no other issues. For example, our technicians can use paintless dent repair (PDR) when your vehicle has sustained a dent in the hood. The PDR technique is cost-effective and efficient, requiring no repainting or body filler applications.

Major Auto Body Repairs

Major auto body repairs typically require more time, effort, and money. This repair includes extensive work on multiple panels or parts of the vehicle’s body, such as when restoring an entire side of a car. 

Our technicians recommend major auto body repairs when the damage is significant or widespread and needs careful attention for the best results. For example, when your car has been in an accident that left it with a crumpled hood, broken headlights, or damaged fenders, our technicians can use a combination of techniques, such as welding and sanding, to bring the bodywork back to its original condition. 

Moderate Auto Body Repairs

Moderate auto body repairs are typically a combination of minor and major ones. This repair requires more effort, time, and money than a minor repair but less than a major one. 

Our technicians recommend moderate auto body repairs when the damage affects multiple areas or parts of the vehicle’s exterior. For example, when your car has sustained dented fenders, broken headlights, and scraped bumpers due to an accident, our technicians can use welding and PDR techniques to restore it to its optimal condition.

Composite auto body repairs involve welding, grinding, sanding, and painting techniques. It entails repairing, refinishing, and replacing plastic components of your vehicle’s exterior. This type of repair is more complex than the others and requires more time, effort, and money to complete correctly. 

Our technicians recommend composite auto body repairs when multiple areas or parts of the vehicle’s exterior have sustained significant damage. For example, when your car has been in a major accident and it has a crumpled hood, damaged headlights, or broken fenders, our technicians can use welding, grinding, sanding, and painting to restore its original condition.
