Auto Repair Planning

When you select Newell's Auto Body to repair your damaged vehicle you are making the best choice for yourself and your automobile. Since 1958, we have employed advanced repair processes and high quality standards to improve the customer repair experience. As a result, we are able to repair vehicles in less than half the amount of the industry average repair time. That means your properly repaired vehicle is returned to you faster. One of the key ways we accomplish such fast repair times is through the use of a repair plan.

Difference between an estimate and a repair plan

In the old traditional model of a body shop repair, the shop would provide a written sheet with what the estimator thought would be necessary to fix the car and a good faith cost estimate. The vehicle would come in for repairs and the work would stop each time the technician came across an additional needed part, then the insurance company would be called to gain approval. This cycle could repeat itself several times on the same repair. The stop-and-start nature of working from an estimate results and more time required to repair your vehicle.

Newell's does it differently. We create a complete repair plan that expedites your vehicle through the repair process. A repair plan is an exact, step-by-step process that includes all necessary parts, repair operations, and approvals required to correctly repair your vehicle.

A repair plan is created for your vehicle soon after it arrives. The vehicle damaged area is completely disassembled by our repair planning team. All parts and operations needed to repair your vehicle are identified at this time. Parts are ordered and approvals gained now instead of throughout the repair. Simply stated, once repairs begin, they continue without interruption saving time and money for you and the many insurance companies we work closely with.


  • You know a more accurate cost of the repair before it is completed
  • You know when the vehicle will be ready for delivery
  • Reduces possible delays during the repair process
  • You know the repair is done right the first time

You will be glad you selected Newell's to repair your vehicle. And, because of our unique repair planning process, you will know exactly what to expect — a first-class repair completed on time.
