A: Manufacturers parts may not be available or subject to back order; We may be waiting for an insurance engineer to inspect the vehicle; Additional parts may be identified during the course of repairs affecting the original estimated completion date.

  • I arranged for my car to be picked up and the guy who arrived was prompt and very nice. My car went away and within a day I received a phone call with an estimated date of completion and regular text messages keeping me updated. I would highly recommend T Reeve & Son.
