Differences in repair estimates are quite common. There are three primary estimating systems used by collision repair services and insurance companies: Mitchell, CCC, and ADP. Each system breaks down labor operations differently and frequently uses different material allowances for similar operations.
Note, however, that the biggest reason for estimate differences is that one estimate may not include all the required steps and processes. If you have any questions, we will go over with you every detail of any insurance company estimate or estimate by another repair service. We want you to have all the information you need to make informed decisions about the repair of your vehicle.
