Body Shop Ft Pierce | Total Auto Painting and Collision Center
What are the moving parts of a Body Shop?
A body shop has a lot of moving parts…both literally and figuratively. In a busy Body Shop Ft Pierce like Total Auto Painting and Collision Center, parts are literally coming and going all day, every day. Many body shop parts now have a core charge. What is a core charge you may wonder? A core charge is a dollar amount charged by the parts vendor to the body shop. This core charge is refunded to the body shop once the used parts are removed from the vehicle and returned to the vendor. Since these used parts have a cash value, obviously, they are being recycled in some way for future use.
The parts ordering process at Total Auto Painting and Collision Center is as follows: The vehicle repairs are authorized by the customer and the repair order is dated in the body shop management software. The repair order, shop copy, and parts order sheet is generated and printed out from the computer management program. Utilizing the printed parts sheet, a parts specialist orders the required parts from our list of approved vendors. The following information is written on the parts order sheet: Price and part number verification, date and time the parts are ordered, the parts salesperson’s name, and the projected date of delivery. The parts order sheet is then attached to the repair order, on the repair order tracking rack.
In the body shop, damaged parts being replaced are removed from the vehicle and any good parts attached to that damaged part are removed and reused. In the case of a front bumper cover that may be getting replaced, usable parts that may be attached to the front bumper cover may consist of fog lights, a front grille and an emblem. These usable parts would be reinstalled in the new bumper cover after it is painted and prior to installation.
Yes, there are a lot of moving parts in a body shop but it’s all in a day’s work at Total Auto Painting and Collision Center in Ft Pierce.
