What is the difference between a unibody and a frame structure?
The only vehicles that have a frame structure, where the body of a vehicle is bolted to a solid frame, are pickup trucks and larger SUVs. All other vehicles are what we call a unibody structure. That is where the inner structure of a vehicle acts as the frame.
How can I get a police report if my accident happened on private property?
In Davidson County, you can call 862-8600, or visit the Metro Police website and print off a copy to file a delayed accident report.
Do I have to use the repair facility referred to me by my insurance?
No matter the insurance company, you are able to choose who does your repairs. Here at Paint & Body Perfectors, we work with all insurance companies. We back up our repairs with a lifetime warranty.
What is the difference between OEM, aftermarket, reconditioned and LKQ parts?
There are different types of parts used during the repair process. Here at Paint & Body Perfectors, we only use parts that we can give a warranty on. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are from the dealer/manufacturer. Aftermarket parts are cosmetically the same as OEM parts; they are just made by another manufacturer. Reconditioned (reman/recon) are OEM parts that were damaged and then repaired. LKQ (like, kind and quality) parts are removed from vehicles at a recycling facility and sold as assemblies to repair shops.
