Frequently Asked Questions

Claim numbers are issue by your insurance company at the time you report your accident. Just jot it down and bring it in with you when you come in to begin the repair process, we will do the rest.

No. A car is a total loss only when the price of repairs exceeds the insurance company’s determined value of your vehicle. Nowadays, most cars are built using unibody (frame and body as one) construction. Our highly skilled technicians, with the aid of our state-of the-art computer measuring system, can return your vehicle to its original factory specifications. If it is determined that the frame section is bent beyond repair, that section can simply be replaced.

Today’s modern factory finishes incorporate multiple layers of highly specialized paints. We have made a major investment in the finest paint system available and constantly upgrades its technology and equipment to ensure that each vehicle’s paint matches. We take special pride in our ability to match factory finishes as the final step in the restoration process.

Absolutely. We generally order your vehicle’s parts at the time that we write the estimate and schedule your vehicle for drop-off a couple of days later unless your vehicle is found unsafe to drive, then we would help you arrange for a rental vehicle as soon as possible. This enables us to provide quicker turnaround time.

After I left, the owner realized I had been over charged by $100 for labor. I had no idea. They called me to let me know of their mistake, and corrected the bill. How many mechanics would go out of their way to give you money back? Their honesty has made me a loyal customer.


Within 24 hours they had ordered the part and were ready to repair my car. The repair took less than 20 min. I was able to wait in the lobby while the latch was replaced. Everyone was really nice–great customer service.


The car being a 1996 Ford Probe did not make it easy to find parts, but they miraculously did and the car was fixed in a week! Looks like new and the price was very reasonable. Thank you, thank you, thank you Pit Stop Body Shop! I would highly recommend them to anyone, even if you’re not from New Orleans and just passing through.


I have been to Pit Stop several times now — they give me a ride to work and come pick me up when the car is finished, which makes it super convenient and easy. I will continue to use them in the future!


…I took the car into the Hyundai dealership to sell it on Saturday. They were stunned at the overall condition and presentation of the vehicle. After thoroughly looking it over, they offered me $1500 more than they offered over the phone just a week earlier!
