McDaniels Quality Body Works | Autos
With approximately 30,000 square feet under roof, we have the capacity to service over 60 vehicles under repair at any time. With this type of room and volume, we are the largest collision center in Longview and surrounding East Texas area.
While we consider ourselves a production facility, we are still able to maintain a high level of quality control with our experienced technicians, state of the art tools and equipment. Our collision shops are equipped with three Car-O-Liner unibody alignment machines and one Chief frame machine which allows us to handle multiple extensive repairs at one time.
To help produce a factory type spot weld, we have added the Car-O-Liner spot welder. This gives us the ability to replace welded panels, yet making the finished product look as close to a factory welded panel as possible. This makes it less noticeable your vehicle has been involved in a collision.
To help produce a factory type finish, we utilize two Spraybake and 1 Blowtherm heated, forced air paint booths. These heated, filtered booths help us to paint in a controlled environment helping to produce a cleaner final product in a shorter amount of time.
Another advantage of using McDaniel's is our ability to do our own 4 wheel alignments in house with our John Bean alignment system. This helps us to verify any structural or suspension repairs without making multiple trips to an outside alignment shop.
As you will see, we have all of the major equipment along with a vehicle lift and air conditioning machines that allows us to keep most repairs in house.
We are available for estimates Monday thru Friday 8am-5pm. We will provide you with a free computer generated, itemized estimate while you wait with no appointment necessary.
We welcome all domestic vehicles and most import vehicles for estimates and repairs on insurance claims or cash repairs.
If you have an insurance claim, it is best to call our office before coming for your estimate as our estimators have assigned companies that each deals with and it is best you come when they are here so they may be familiar with your repair from day one.
In many cases it may not be necessary to come to the shop for an estimate. Most companies that do not have Direct Repair Programs (DRP) with repair facilities will provide you with the estimate you will need to have your car repaired without regard to our estimate.
Should the insurance company tell you to get estimates, please bring your claim number and adjusters phone number so that we may contact them and forward the estimate and any photos they may need.
By law, you are not required to get more than one estimate. Just let the insurance company know you have chosen Mcdaniel's as your repair shop and they should tell you how they will handle your claim.
Should you need help, please contact our office and we will be glad to assist.
