Collins Collision Center Warranty

Collision repairs performed at Bill Collins Ford have a lifetime warranty, as long as you own the vehicle, against defects in craftsmanship for paint and bodywork. Any parts or materials applied are warranted for as long as the Manufacturer shall warrant them. No other warranty, expressed or implied, shall supersede this warranty.

We recommend that you follow these simple precautions in the first few months for all repaired areas:

In The First 90 Days: 
  • Do not wax or polish the vehicle - this will allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
In the first 30 Days:
  • Do not use a commercial car wash. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface.
  • Wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and very mild car wash solution. Be sure to use a soft cloth or sponge. Always dry the vehicle with a soft towel or chamois to prevent water spotting.
  • Do not drive on gravel roads if you can avoid them. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days. 
Normal maintenance:
  • Wash the vehicle in the shade - never in the sun.
  • Do not "dry wipe" the vehicle - always use clean water. Dry wiping could scratch the finish.
  • Do not park under trees that drop sap. Sap and bird droppings can destroy a new finish.
  • Do not spill gasoline, oil, anti-freeze or windshield washer solvent on the new finish.
  • If you do…immediately rinse off with water. Do not "dry wipe".
Following these instructions can help protect your investment for years to come.
