Collision Repair

St. Laurent always stays ahead of the curve by investing in the latest training, technology, and equipment. We maintain our I-CAR Gold class certification which ensures our estimators and techs are up to speed in the latest industry standards. Additionally we invest in top of the line equipment and technology.

Say Goodbye to Bends

Machines like a Uni-Body/Frame Straightening system ensure there is little room for error when you need to get a vehicle frame straightened out. These types of machinery measure vehicles and straighten them, so the frame is no longer riddled with dents or bends.

Computers Offer Precise Measurements

Some systems use computers to assess a vehicle’s body. The technicality behind this machinery offers the precision and detail necessary for complete, thorough, and accurate repairs. Cameras, scanners, and more that are used in computers have a lot to offer and are almost certain to improve as time goes on.

Bigger and Better Spray Booths

While spray booths are hardly new around shops that offer collision repair, they keep getting better and better. For example, St. Laurent Collision Center has a spray booth that is downdraft and heated.  They can customize temperature and angles to ensure a thorough wash to make a vehicle look brand new.

Making quality products that deliver results requires technology. As technology ebbs and flows, great developments come around and improve all aspects of life. From the phones in our hand to garages offering top-notch services, technology is all around us and shifts consistently.

Pre and Post Scan Technology

St. Laurent has hopped on the Pre and Post Scan bandwagon ensuring we are following manufacturer recommendations and requirements when it comes to scan diagnostics.

  • Pre-Repair Scan/Pre-Scan (Capturing Codes)

This type of scan is used to perform damage analysis to identify errors, faults, and/or damage related, and unrelated, to the collision. Pre-repair scanning is done to capture diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

  • Post-Repair Scan/Post-Scan (Identifying/Clearing Codes)

This type of scan is done as a post-repair process used to ensure all vehicle diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), related and unrelated to the collision, and those triggered during the repair, have been cleared. A test drive may be required prior to clearing some codes; some codes may only appear after certain driving distances, key cycles, or other enable criteria have been reached.

  • Post-Repair Calibration/Initialization (PRC/I)

This type of scan may be require following the removal, installation, and/or repair of many safety and driver convenience system parts. In some cases post-repair calibration is required by the OEM manufacturer as part of the repair process. The scan tool’s used must have the required initialization/calibration capabilities for the specific vehicle and model year involved set forth by the OEM manufacturer.
