Frequently Asked Questions

Q : What should I look for in a collision shop?
Honesty is very important when choosing a collision shop. You should choose a shop you feel comfortable with and is user-friendly with insurance companies. Look for a written warranty on repairs and shops that have been around for a long time. In addition, try to see some of their repairs and find someone who has used them in the past for recommendations!
Q : How long should rust repairs last? Are they warrantied?
There is no set way to tell how long rust repair will last, all metal parts including aluminum are subject to corrosion. Additionally, rust can come from anywhere on the car and spread to newer fixed parts. Some parts we use are warranted against rust however; rust repair is not included in Nu-Look’s lifetime written warranty.
Q : What determines a total loss?
Most insurance companies consider a total loss to be damages that total 75% of what the vehicle is worth. Value is determined by condition, mileage, and options among other things. Of course, this may vary with different insurance companies.
Q : Should I spend time shopping around for estimates?
No, every collision shop is subject to the same parts and labor rates, differences in estimates are directly related to how thorough and accurate the estimates are completed. Go to a shop you feel comfortable with, and they will provide you with a detailed estimate. If you do have other estimates, ask a Nu-Look sales estimator to consult you on comparing line items between different estimates. We are able to advise you on the exact differences!
Q :How are you able to match paint colors on repairs for all makes and models?
Nu-Look Collision Centers uses a state-of-the-art computerized mixing system. All we need to do is input the manufacturers’ paint code off of your vehicle and it generates a formula for us to match repairs to your exact factory color!
Q : How long will repairs generally take?
The timeframe for each job is determined by the size of the job and the amount of body and paint labor hours needed to complete it. Your sales estimator should be able to give you an approximate timeframe when you schedule your appointment!
Q : What kind of parts will be used on my car?
This is decided based upon you and your insurance company. Your insurance contract specifies how repairs will be handled. Nu-Look Collision will work on your behalf to restore your car to your satisfaction, using both new and used parts – provided they meet the stringent qualifications.
Q : Does Nu-Look offer a shuttle service if I choose not to rent a car?
Absolutely! Nu-Look has an entire fleet of shuttle vehicles! We can pick you up and/or take you anywhere you need to go in Monroe and Ontario County while your car is being repaired… for free!
Q : Do I need to make an appointment for an estimate?
Walk-ins are always welcome, however, to better serve you, Nu-Look Collision prefers customers call first and schedule an appointment for an estimate.
