STEP 2: GET RENTAL CAR

STEP 3: RECEIVE A FREE ESTIMATE
Garber Highland Body Shop is Highland’s Trusted collision repair. We earned this distinction by consistently going the extra mile for our clients. As such, each and every vehicle receives a complete inspection upon arrival where every scratch, ding, and dent is recorded on a diagram of the vehicle. We’ll take this information and create a complimentary estimate, where damage that is related to a collision is kept separate from unrelated damage. Then we’ll discuss the estimate with you, step by step, and work with your insurance companies so you’ll get the best deal on your repairs. It’s just one of the reasons Garber Highland Body Shop is Highland’s Trusted collision repair.
STEP 4: REPAIR, PAINT, POLISH
After your vehicle is evaluated and we’ve obtained the necessary insurance approvals, we restore your vehicle to its original factory finish. As part of our commitment to you, Garber Highland Body Shop is certified, providing the highest-quality repairs exclusively with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts.
Trust your vehicle to Garber Highland Body Shop for all of your auto dent removal needs. Required when the metal of your vehicle is stretched upon impact, or when the dent is too deep to extract, traditional dent repair is an excellent choice. In most cases, Garber Highland Body Shop will remove the body panels, taillights, and interior panels as needed to reach the underside of the dent. Typically, Bondo is applied to fill in the dent, and the vehicle is painted using Garber Highland Body Shop’s computerized paint-matching system.
