Automotive Painting Service
The one question everybody wants to know after a collision repair is how will the paint look and will you be able to tell it was in an accident. Because we are certified by nearly every Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), our technicians are trained to replicate the factory paint job on your vehicle utilizing the paint recommended by the manufacturer. You can rest assured that your repair will be imperceptible. We have two state of the art paint booths, one extra large down draft prep station and seven down draft prep decks to refinish everything from a small scratch, a completed side, to a full refinish.
Your vehicle’s frame is the structural foundation for your vehicle. In a collision, the frame can be damaged and must be repaired properly in order to maintain the original safety specifications of the vehicle. Sometimes the frame is integrated into the body of the vehicle as one piece. Many Original Equipment Manufacturers require a specific frame bench with dedicated fixture attachments tailored specifically for each vehicle. Not all body shops can afford to keep up with the equipment expenses for all these frame machines and jigs, and so they compromise therfore putting your safety at risk. This is not the case with Mid Island where we have eight frame machines and all the required jigging for nearly every vehicle manufacturer.

Insurance Claims Handling
Our damage assessors are trained and focused solely on the best interests of you, our client. Mid island is relentless when it comes to negotiating settlements with insurance companies and obtaining the optimum benefits of your policy on your behalf. We have never, nor will we ever, allow an insurer to dictate how we repair a vehicle and what components are utilized. We have been performing repairs to vehicles and trained by the OEMs for a very long time and we know the only way to repair a vehicle correctly is by the book, and that book is the OEM repair manual.
Aluminum Intensive Repair
Aluminum construction is more prevalent now than ever before, especially in high end and European cars. Aluminum repair takes a very specialized level of training in order to perform the repair properly, and not every body shop has the reuired training. At Mid Island Collision, we are one of the few repair facilities certified by European OEM’s to perform aluminum repairs. Mid island collision has invested in excess of a $800,000 in aluminum-intensive repair equipment and specific training.
