The Services Provided at Union Collision
Insurance Claim - We are a direct repair facility for many insurance companies but not all. Our estimators will walk you through the steps of filing a claim with your insurance company or the other person’s insurance carrier. If you have a police report and want to know the other party’s insurance company, please click here for the list of all carriers in the state of New Jersey.
Rental Vehicles - Although we don’t rent cars we will make all arrangements for you with the rental companies in the area. We have a good relationship with the rental car companies and try to use our volume with them to negotiate the best rates possible. Once you bring your car to Union Collision, one of the agents will come here, pick you up, and bring you to their office to complete the paperwork. All your information will already be in their computer system and it should be a matter of minutes before you are able to be on your way.
Towing - We do not own a tow truck but we work closely with local independent tow truck operators. As a result, if your car is in need of a tow, we will call one of the local tow companies who will gladly come and pick up your vehicle for us.
Detailing - Every vehicle that enters our shop gets a thorough cleaning when we are complete. However, if you need your vehicle detailed, we will try to bring it back to showroom condition. By appointment only, we offer a complete detail of your car. Please email us for prices and appointments.
Paintless Dent Repair - Paintless dent repair (PDR) is exactly what the name implies. The small door dings or dents your car has are removed with special tools that do not require us to paint your vehicle. Every dent and ding is different and one of our estimators can better evaluate the damage once we look at in person. PDR is a great option to save money by avoiding the cost of paint and save time by eliminating the paint process altogether. We included some photos of the dent repair in process.
Our Facility Has Five Buildings!
Building One: “The Office” - Our newly renovated building is located at 640 Rahway Avenue and houses both our main work area and the shop’s main office. You will find our office is up-to-date with the newest technology and is a clean, quiet place to conduct business. This shop is where most of our heavy framework and bodywork is done. It is 5,000 square feet of air-conditioned space that can comfortably fit 10 cars. This building is equipped with four frame machines, one lift, and three state-of-the-art welders, as well as our computerized measuring system.
Building Two: “Detail” - Building two is where we detail every vehicle that comes into the shop during the final steps of our repair process. This building also contains our alignment machine. We have a two man team who spend a good amount of time cleaning the vehicles. It is in this area that a final vehicle inspection is done and this is where we make the cars shine!
Building Three: “Evans” - ”Evans” was the home of Evans Trucking for the past half century and only recently was acquired by Union Collision. As of now, we use this building as a mechanic shop and our storage facility. Here we store all of the parts for the cars that are currently at our shop or are scheduled to come in. This gives us more than enough room to ensure that these new parts don’t become lost or damaged. Cars that are dismantled or have broken windows are always put inside Evans away from the harsh weather.
Building Four: “Paint Shop” - Unlike many other collision shops, our paint department is housed in a building all on its own, known to us simply as “the paint shop”. This is a 2,000 square-foot facility that is committed to the refinishing of vehicles. The paint shop features two downdraft spray booths where all of our refinishing takes place. Having one building dedicated to painting vehicles is a huge advantage. Not performing any bodywork in this building reduces the possibilities of any imperfections one may see in the final refinished job. This stand-alone facility also allows us to minimize any chemical contaminates which might affect our final painted product.
Building Five: “Primer/Paint” - Within this six bay garage is another spray booth and a separate area that is used for us to perform additional repairs.
Union Collision is a Family Business
Inside these four buildings that make up Union Collision you will find three generations working together. There is a grandfather (Frank), a mother (Barbara), a father (Kenny) and two sons (Michael and Nick) working closely together and somehow or another doing so without any quarrels. That family then extends to the rest of the employees at the shop. They may not have the same last name or the stunning good looks but they are treated for better or for worse like they are just another part of our family. All employees are eligible for full medical coverage, 401(k) plan with matching contributions, tuition reimbursement, as well as paid holidays and vacations.
In the end, we are trying to make the unfortunate occurrence of a car accident as painless and hassle free as we possibly can. We try our best and often go above and beyond the scope of the repair process to make everyone that walks through our front door part of our family.
