Restoration Pricing Policy

All restoration tasks are completed and billed on a time and material basis. This is necessary due to the potential hidden and unknown problems inherent to all automobiles. Because of the unknown, we do not give quotes or exact estimates and prefer to give cost projections. As the major unknown factors are discovered, the cost projection or estimate will be updated with supplements where aplicable.

Delongs Automotive requires a down payment in advance to initiate any restoration project. Labor, parts and materials are drawn off the first and subsequent deposit(s) amount. When your account balance nears zero a new deposit will be required no later than the end of the current month to continue the restoration project; late payments will cause work to be suspended until account balance has been restored.

Copies of all invoices reflecting incurred expenses shall be sent to you as well as a statement of current account balance. Average restoration project down payments normally run $2500 - $4500 dependent upon the scope of the restoration.
