How does the process work?
Typically we start the process off by having a phone consultation with the customer in regards to their project. We will go over the needs, goals and budget for the project and work with you to evaluate different options that are available. From this point we will work up an initial estimate for the customer allowing them to see a rough cost for the project. Typically these estimates are within 10% of the total final cost of the project. If the customer is happy with the quote, at this point we will schedule a drop off date and give a total for the deposit required for the job. Typically we ask for at least 50% of the parts be paid for on drop off to allow us to order most of the larger components for the car. You will be contacted later for the remaining 50% of the parts bill on the job. Once the parts arrive typically the car will be completed within 4-6 weeks (depending on the job specifications). Final payment for labor and any additional expenses will be paid upon pickup of the vehicle.
