Pre-scanning retrieves fault codes from all vehicle systems before any repairs begin. This helps create accurate repair plans by directing the estimator and technician to look for any hidden damage to those systems. A report is generated from our scan tool-the factory tool in most cases-which we use to help create a list of items that will need to be addressed during the repair process. We translate those reports into simple terms that indicate what parts may be needed and which ones will require programming or calibrations after installation.
Our pre-scan reports will help reduce the number of supplements your shop submits to the insurance companies by pointing these out before repairs begin. When using us for your scan services you'll get a copy of the original report generated by the scan tool as well as an invoice that has all of the elements of the scan report translated into a list of parts and required calibrations that's easy to understand. Pre-scanning in some cases can help prevent fraudulent claims.
