The Process

Car accidents can be a stressful, traumatic, and difficult process, but Bernelis Garage wants to make sure the repair process is simple and stress free! Being without a car can be an inconvenience, which is why we assure fast turnaround times so you can get back to your daily life with ease.

Collision repair begins with an inspection of the vehicle. The results of the inspection are documented, photos of the vehicle are taken, and the information is passed on to your insurance company and/or provided to you. We then will input the information into our computer estimate system that provides a detailed FREE estimate of your repairs.
