What happens after you are in a collision and you contact Network Auto Body to help you get your car back on the road?

First step, we handle all the towing. With the help of M.T. Towing (our towing affiliate), we’ll get your car to the nearest Network location of your choice.

Once the car has arrived, it goes straight to the Collision Damage Appraisal Area. There, the vehicle is inspected, and any visible damage is entered into the damage report.

But we don’t stop with just what can be seen from the outside! More often than not, collisions cause hidden damage that can only be discovered once the vehicle has been disassembled and the structure exposed. We’ll give the vehicle a thorough examination, searching for any damage that could compromise its structural integrity. We’ll also search for broken parts that need repair or replacing.

All of this is done before the insurance inspection, so that when your insurance company shows up to inspect the vehicle post-collision, they’ll get a full report on all the necessary repairs. Thanks to this inspection, your vehicle will receive the full care and repair it needs.

Once the insurance company has inspected your vehicle, you will be contacted to authorize the repairs.


Many body shops use aftermarket parts for the repair pressured by the insurance company. Sadly, aftermarket parts aren’t always the best option if you want to restore your vehicle to optimum condition.

With Network Auto Body, Damage reports are always prepared using OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts.

Why is that? OEM parts always fit, and are crash-tested to ensure accurate deployment of your SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) safety system–including, air bags, seat belts and head rest.

Note: If your insurance company doesn’t allow for OEM parts, let Network Auto Body know. We will assist you in obtaining only the best parts.

In the state of California, you have the right to choose the shop of your choice. Don’t let your insurance company dictate where to send the vehicle, but make sure you find the right body repair facility of your choice.

Network Auto Body is the Authorized Repair Facility for 11 auto dealers. They are confident that we will do the best job on their vehicles, which is why they refer collision damage to us.
