Complete Side Mirror Repair & Replacement

A vehicle’s side mirror is a crucial safety feature that ensures you, the driver, have a complete view of your surroundings. When a side mirror is damaged, it’s imperative that you get it fixed right away.

Car side mirror repair typically entails one or more of these parts: the base (mirror assembly), mirror glass, cover and the turn signal (if equipped). And while many of these individual components can be repaired depending on the extent of the damage, oftentimes complete side mirror replacement is necessary.

But don’t worry — side mirror replacement is a relatively low cost and can be completed in a short amount of time to get your vehicle back on the road looking good as new.

Insurance & Communication

Most insurance carriers are open 24/7, which means you can file a claim after hours or on the weekends. Contact your local Key Collision to schedule an appointment. Appointments are required.

When you leave your vehicle at one of our locations, we will require (and help) you to remove everything inside your vehicle. The paperwork will include an authorization to repair and limited power of attorney. We will also discuss the terms of vehicle payment, including your insurance deductible. If you need a rental car, we work directly with Enterprise.

We also encourage our customers to opt for text message updates as we have found it’s the most efficient means of communication. We will alert you as to where your car is in the repair process and contact you via text with any questions.

STEP 2: Planning

Vehicle Disassembly & Your Repair Plan

We use a structured approach to evaluate the damage to your vehicle on a part-by-part basis, including electrical scanning of the vehicle’s systems to uncover any underlying issues. After disassembling your vehicle to inspect for full damage, we create a thorough blueprint detailing everything that will happen during the repair process. All of this takes between 1–3 hours.

We’ll submit the repair plan to your insurance company after the disassembly and blueprint process is complete to expedite the approval. Your insurance company will approve the plan and any additional estimates, if necessary. Once we’re in agreement, we order the necessary parts and begin repairs.

The Repair Process

In most cases, we begin repairs immediately — even before the new parts arrive. This process includes both computerized measuring of any structural damage and mechanical repairs. The timeline will depend on the extent of the damage, but we will keep you informed every step of the way while we use the most up-to-date technology and equipment to provide the best possible repairs. We also use Mirka dust-free sanding systems for safe, efficient repairs and the health of our technicians.

This ensures that repairs can happen directly at Key Collision, which means a faster turnaround time than many other repair shops. At this point, you will receive a text message telling you where we are in the process, including an estimated time frame for completion. After the reassembly process is complete, we wash, clean and vacuum your vehicle.
